It’s one shock after another in Devil Survivor this week. I liked most of it, but there were one or two things I would’ve done differently. It’s was the kind of episode that makes you want to think up a story of your own, in a good way that is.
First thing’s first: Hinako. Why in the unholy hell is she still alive? We just saw her death scene not so long ago, and it was pretty touching too, so why the hell did she show up? Hibiki may have been darn pleased, but I’m sure not. As much as I like that character, I wouldn’t want to see her again after such a death scene.
I also don’t like how ridiculously weak Daichi still is. Just give the guy a break already. We already know that he doesn’t have a chance with Io-chan, so at least give him a decent demon that doesn’t run away as soon as it gets summoned. The first time that happened was funny, the second time was okay, but now it’s getting annoying.
The rest was great! I like how much control and power Yamato has. Not because I like him to be the strongest one out there, but because I want a powerful opponent for Hibiki to face later on. The thought of Hibiki surpassing Yamato someday gives me the chills, just like the thought about his new demon (provided he will get one).
Next week’s episode should be really something. Hibiki has finally gone his own way, Daichi realized once again that he’s still useless, Io is still in love with Hibiki, Yamato is still a stuck-up powerhouse and now it seems that Ronaldo, Yuzuru and Otomo didn’t survive this week’s episode. Just you watch, it’ll turn out that they’re still alive next week. If Hinako can do it than so can they.Read More
I must admit that this episode contained some much needed action, but to call it “awesome” would be a gross exaggeration. I think the first two episodes were much better than this one if you ask me, so I’m kind of hoping that the next episode will be even better. It sure is looking promising again.
I must say that I started sighing again at first. I got this nasty feeling that it would turn out to be yet another one of those ‘easy-going’ episodes, especially when Nai started playing in the snow. I’m not willing to sacrifice twenty minutes every week to watch a gay-looking rat with red eyes playing with a miniature snowman.
It’s sad, but I actually got a little exited when they started discussing the option to dissect Nai again. I would’ve gone nuts at first, but now I don’t really care anymore. It’s really not like me to talk like that, even though I didn’t really like Nai from the very beginning. You need to be careful with guys like that, otherwise you might suddenly wake up one day to find his head between your legs.
It’s a damn good thing that the end finally ended with some action. Yogi finally transformed into a real man after being attacked by two unknown enemies. I think that’s a good thing. Now he would play around so much with that girly voice of his. The only thing that hasn’t changed is how useless Nai and Gareki are. Gareki at the very least tries, but Nai was ready to crawl into a corner and die. The only reason why Gareki survived is because of his coat, the one thing they seemed interested in. So much for a serious story, huh?Read More
I couldn’t stop myself from sighing throughout this episode. It was like warning a kid no to put his finger in an angry pit bull’s ass, only to see him do it anyway. The dog is going to kill you if you do something like that, of course.
It’s a strange comparison, but I could help it. I knew from the very beginning that it could only be trouble for Iwai and Kiri if they went to that party. They knew it, I’m also pretty sure they were warned, yet they went anyway and they faced the consequences. Sometimes it’s better to say no and leave than to try and fail.
The one thing that confused me the most is how composed Iwai and Kiri were when they saw that ridiculous play about Iwai’s life. Anyone would’ve gotten angry if they were being made fun of by a bunch of unknown people, and that is why I was confused when both Iwai and Kiri didn’t even look angry or upset.
It even got to the point where they themselves were called out on stage for everyone’s amusement. I knew it would go wrong, I knew Seigi couldn’t be far away and I knew that Iwai would only get in the way again. It’s quite rude of me to say, but Iwai really is useless when it comes to things like these. She’s simply too weak to do anything.
I have no idea what else to say right now. I’m pretty bummed out about Seigi’s abilities. They seem overpowered. Or maybe it’s Kiri that’s just too weak and inexperienced? Killing Goods cannot be destroyed, we know that, but that noose around Kiri’s neck shouldn’t fall under that? Kiri should be able to cut that noose, yet he swung around like a mad man on crack, hoping he might land a lucky hit… So strange…Read More
I am shocked. I am absolutely shocked. Here I was, trying to enjoy the action with a nice glass of cold Sprite, only to see how a lot of the characters are acting like idiots. Sometimes I just wish I could somehow ‘transport’ myself into the show so I could shove shoes up characters’ asses.
We discovered during last week’s episode that Ledo’s enemies also lives on earth. They may look slightly different from the ones he fought, but it turned out to be the same species nonetheless. So, I sat here watching with a smile on my face as I saw how Ledo tore that thing apart with the help of his faithful companion, Chamber.
Yes, that was very nice indeed, when suddenly I couldn’t even drink peacefully anymore after I saw how the characters reacted. They were shocked that he killed one of their “Whalesquids”, known to Ledo only as Hideauze. Ledo wanted to protect both himself and his new friends by killing that thing, so I definitely can’t blame him for that.
What really ticked me off is how the people reacted. They turned hostile and even aimed their guns at him again, even though they know full well that he could easily annihilate them in under a minute. Ridgett must have lost her mind to point her gun at someone that helped save them from those pirates.
It was aggravating to no end, but I can’t exactly blame them. It’s true that Ledo has to understand that things work different on earth. The Hideauze there might not be hostile, they might only attack when they’re being attacked. There’s still too much I don’t know before I can form a solid opinion. Maybe Ledo has decided to leave their fleet? Who knows…Read More
Is it just my imagination or are the characters in this show becoming more and more aggressive with each passing episode? I like it! There’s really very little to no room for pointless gags, just focus more on the romance and story!
It’s very safe to say that the roles have changed a bit. We have been introduced to another, bigger cat statue made of stone. This statue has been in the Tsutsukakushi family for generations and is said to grant any wish. That, unfortunately for Youto and his friends, appeared to be quite true. You don’t give human beings the ability to wish for whatever they want, it always ends badly. It’s within our nature to desire sex, power, knowledge and a lot more stuff that could very well get us killed. You don’t give that power to human beings, let alone to a bunch of teenagers that will only use such a divine privilege for their own good.
Mind you, it made the story a whole lot more interesting. It’s quite amusing to see Tsukushi seduce Youto with her glorious breasts and all, but I’d rather see what that statue is capable of and what kind of wishes those idiots will make. Ironically it was Azusa that made the first sex-related wish instead of Youto.
The next episode should prove to be quite troublesome though. Tsukishi wished for the world to be over, so I’m kind of having a hard time picturing romantic and funny scenes. I can only see scenes that would allow Youto to improve his relationship with Tsukishi, whom currently hates his guts. This is his chance to win her over.Read More
