Black Bullet episode 09
This really isn’t going the way I had expected. I wouldn’t call that a bad thing, but it makes me kind of nervous every time I try to think about the ending. It has been a good show so far and I would really like to see a good ending.
This episode made me rethink everything. I was led to believe that Gastrea were these all-powerful creatures that only select few could kill with specific weapons. Normal ammunition and melee weapons don’t work against them. You’d have to be one of the cursed children in order to do some damage when it comes to hand-to-hand (or in this case hand-to-monster) combat.
The thought that Rentarou is going to take on thousands of these creatures with only himself and nine others is just a bit too much… I remember him messing around during episode one. He couldn’t even defeat that spider properly. Now he’s going to fight against thousands of them in order to try and safe his city? Yeah… The balance of power is shifting a bit too much. The strong is starting to look way too weak.
I don’t even want to talk about the fact that Rentarou met up with an old senpai of his. This guy supposedly ranked eighth when it comes to Tendo martial arts and is considered to be one of the strongest guys out there from what I understood. Maybe he will team carry them to victory, because I honestly can’t see Rentarou defeat all of those Gastrea. He barely defeated Tina Sprout a few episodes ago. Now he’s up against an enemy that he couldn’t even defeat during episode one? Truly a very strange development. I thought that he would at least find a few dozen of strong characters to fight by his side… Even Kisara is going to fight with that semi-weak body of hers… I have a bad feeling about this.
