Okay this just pisses me off and here is why!
I recently just read Tsugihagi no Kanojo or Patchwork Girl and this stirred the ranter in me. This is a spoiler for this 3 chapter manga, but I don’t give a shit. So the manga seems like a love story of cruel fate. Where the main character gives up his life to save the girl he started to care for. What ticks me off is that after the surgery we are expecting to see the father, who is the head of the hospital, to tell the girl to take care, but he reveals that this is all a plan, that he and the girl made. She has done this before and finds it a fun game where she enjoys the challenge of getting someone to give up their organs to her. They then start to refer to the main boy as an idiot.
This really pisses me off and this is why, IT WAS UNNECESSARY! I was okay with watching the romance and seeing the tragedy for what it was. For some ungodly reason they decided to throw a giant FUCK YOU to what I committed a couple minutes of reading, and it defeats the purpose of what I just read. This is not just limited to this manga or manga in general, but I find it unnecessary in other forms of media. I mean if you are foreshadowing, that this was just a game, then it’s fine, but it was pretty random. Sure the Dad tells the son to kill the girl and get her pancreas, but that doesn’t mean this is a game, nor does it mean that the girl is aware of it. It felt like it was thrown on at the last minute and it ruins the already mediocre story as a whole.
When a movie throws a random twist it’s just for shock factor and does not contribute to the overall story. It is emotionless and each story has emotion, from the original creator, but this takes away the story. If it is foreshadowed, then it’s more acceptable. It’s just unamusing when it’s random and just wasted all of the time I invested in this movie.
Those are my thoughts on Twists and now that you know about you may agree or disagree. Leave your comments below, if you agree or disagree.
