Mekakucity Actors Episode 2 Notes – “You’re All Style and No Substance!”

As always, the notes were taken while actually watching the episode, and rather than just repeating what you've already watched, elaborate upon it, assuming you've already watched the episode.

The quote in the title is actually from within this episode, and it feels very relevant. Some plot-comparisons rather than direction-comparisons are made to Monogatari as well. They all have things haunting them.

The pacing keeps being highly problematic, because useless talk isn't an issue when you have 3-5 episodes per "issue", but they are when you have one. I actually think the episodes could serve to be shorter, and that being artificially inflated with extra talk/time where nothing happens serves to weaken them.
