“God vs. Tetsu,” the Strangely Anticlimactic Giant Robot Fight
Rendering a compelling giant robot battle in animation is one thing. (I mean, we’ve all done it, right?) Rendering a compelling non-battle is another. The short god vs tetsu doesn’t just eschew context like a plot, background on the fighters, or even the name of a city; half of the battle is just a temper tantrum by one of the combatants, and the conclusion takes a mystifyingly hilarious turn. Uploader pongsongsai doesn’t quite give a mission statement for the piece, but sometimes a brief injection of unexpected humor is just what the doctor ordered.
