Black Bullet episode 12
Awesome episode! In fact, this is the episode that I have been waiting for all this time. I know I have said this before on several occasions during the last few weeks, but I never saw Kagetane as one of the bad guys. Never. The people responsible for killing Cursed Children should all die anyway.
I was actually quite surprised that Rentarou managed to fulfil his mission by killing that one Gastrea that supposedly led the other Gastrea through pheromones. Nothing like that has been proven yet, but he did it anyway. Doesn’t hurt to kill them anyway, seeing as they’re the human race’s enemy. I shouldn’t have been so surprised since Kagetane was on his side from start to finish, but come on… He invaded a Gastrea-invested forest with only three of them and killed a Gastrea that may or may not turn the war around in favour of mankind. Why isn’t that guy a king yet?
Well, Rentarou may not be a king (yet), but he’s definitely the leader on the battleground right now. I may have missed the part where they explained what happened to that old guy, but I’m glad that he’s dead. He shouldn’t have been a leader in the first place (much less a father). The only thing he was good for was leaving Asaka, his little partner, behind so she could team up with Shouma now that Midori-chan has passed away.
A lot happened. Characters that should’ve died are dead and characters that I wanted to live happily ever after died as well. All that’s left is for Rentarou to lead the remaining ground forces into battle in order to kill Aldebaran, a top-class level Gastrea. This should be a very interesting ending now that his team is complete. I just hope that that backstabber Takuto, whom is planning to kill Rentarou, dies a very slow and painful death next week.
