Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge episode 06

Okay, I already know my popularity won’t increase any further if I say this, but is it just me or is the story simply going in circles right now? You have a certain amount of characters, each character has a partner of some kind and they all want something from one another.

[Mezashite] Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge - 06 [609D1BF5].mkv_snapshot_08.46_[2013.05.09_23.55.56]This episode was strange like that. Character A managed to successfully manipulate Characters B and C into killing Characters D and E. We all know who’s who, but the question is why. Is Character A, Seigi, a character whose Killing Good allows him to kill murderers only by reading from his book, after which a noose appears around the target’s neck that stranglers him/her until he or she is dead (or passed out when it appears that he or she is not someone worthy of death (yet)). One would think that some (or more) of the characters are overpowered, but they all have their own weaknesses, I’m sure. That’s how these things work.

[Mezashite] Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge - 06 [609D1BF5].mkv_snapshot_10.09_[2013.05.09_23.56.03]First thing’s first; Seigi’s abilities are simply fascinating. His abilities are somewhat restricted, as he can only kill bad people. His target needs to be a murderer or his abilities won’t be effective. That sounds weak in a way, yet murderers can’t seem to escape his grasp. Take Kiri; he, too, was caught by Seigi’s noose, he had nowhere to go at that point. What happened? Kiri almost died at the hands (so to speak) of Seigi because he showed that he, much like his forefathers, has pretty much everything it takes to be a good murderer. Let’s focus on the fact that Kiri has a pair of scissors that could cut anything, doesn’t that mean that he could cut Seigi’s noose as well?

[Mezashite] Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge - 06 [609D1BF5].mkv_snapshot_18.07_[2013.05.09_23.56.32]Don’t get me wrong, I’m not unleashing a scissors-cuts-rope-discussion, as I would probably be dead already by the time that ends. I’m saying that everyone’s kill goods has a fatal flaw. Maybe Seigi’s flaw is that he needs to read from his book, or that he needs to focus at all times for his abilities to work. I mean, Kiri’s abilities blossom when he has Iwai to protect. Ruka’s Killing Good, a whip that allows her to control people, only works on certain people. People that have been whipped cannot be used to harm their loved ones, so that, in a way, is quite a big flaw in an otherwise great killing tool. She, if it weren’t for that one flaw, could create an entire army of loyal subjects and have them do her bidding.
