Blade and Soul episode 02
I knew I would write about Blade and Soul. I usually do when it comes to underrated shows. I saw people moan about Blade and Soul because it’s been adapted from a game. They said, and I quote; “anime that are adapter from games are worthless.” – No… They’re not. Your taste is worthless, that’s all.
You just continue to root for Aruka, a master assassin from the Clan of the Sword, as she continues her journey without backing down for anyone. She’s always on guard and ready to strike at any time. She proved this time and time again to characters that thought that saw her as an easy prey because of what she is (a woman).
That all being said, she does have quite a few weaknesses though. Her personality and lack of experience is definitely one of them. She listens to people too easily and accepts anything that she is given. That in itself is quite a big flaw when you have an entire empire on your ass that wants you dead. A very big flaw indeed.
This episode could be used as a perfect example of that. Aruka met a girl whom happened to be a bounty hunter. When a poor bounty hunter and a girl with a bounty on her head start hanging out together… Well… Surely you don’t need anyone telling you that it’s about to go down, right? I mean, the girl ended up finding out about her and immediately tried to cash in by killing Aruka…
Also, I really don’t like that Karen character. She seems incredibly strong and lets people think that she’s this fair, kind lady that everyone should look up to. In reality she’s just as bad. “Water isn’t free here so you have to work it off” my ass. She probably just wants employee’s that won’t cost her anything. She is probably going to be a problem in the future.
