Triage X – 01 (First Impressions)

tx15

Black Label, a secret group of vigilante surgeons, some of whom may still actually be high school students, fight back to remove evil from the body of their City. With guns, cool motorcycles, and bulletproof helmets.

But their coolest dude appears to be living on the edge, not following the rules. Little do they know, he’s talking to the childhood ghost of his dead friend.

Also, his body is made from parts of that dead friend’s body, from when they were both blown up by terrorists who bombed a medical conference…

Triage X is a stupid, exposition-you-to-death, juvenile show pumped full of boy toys and boobs to look at. Except it’s heavily censored.

You may like Triage X: if you enjoy the secret lives of high school students with big breasts who fight crime after school. If wait for the BluRay, you’ll even get to see a fair amount of those boobs too.

It’s not drawn badly but it has a 90s feel to it that reminds me of BurnUP and other ‘extreme’ cop and robbers shows. For better or worse, the vehicle and weapon design got plenty of attention.

You may want to skip Triage X: if high school angst, love triangles, and having plot and characters endlessly expositioned at you isn’t your cup of tea.

Most likely, you’ve seen something similar before. Worse, so much is thrown at you in the first episode that I found no ability to empathize with any of the characters specifically. I didn’t even realize one of the high school girls wasn’t part of Black Label at first.

Honestly, I don’t see any reason to follow this show. It isn’t terrible-looking, but the censorship ruins it’s base-appeal, and the so-evil-it-hurts villains are as over-designed as they are dull. Dull dull dull.

bleagh…
