Devil Survivor 2 The Animation episode 10
Was there any improvement? I don’t know. The last episode ended with such an irritating cliff-hanger, one that made me want to go outside and kick a puppy for no reason. This episode really made me wonder about the ending…
So Io-chan was actually asked to forfeit her life for the sake of Yamato’s plans. They thought that she was the best candidate to summon a specific demon capable of taking down an enemy that constantly multiplies. The problem with this plan is that Io dies afterwards, because her body cannot handle it when that demon takes over.
I feel as though there was very little progress because Hibiki proved to be quite useless again. He let it happen because he wasn’t on top of things. He’s always the last to find out about Yamato’s next step. The story in general may have progressed a little now that another enemy has been defeated, but the characters did not, not a lot anyway.
I must admit that my faith in Hibiki was slightly restored when he rushed out there and actually managed to save Io after obtaining the same kind of power that Yamato wields. Yeah, we know, Hibiki is a very special boy. To hell with that though, what about his promise to change the world? He barely managed to save Io, not to mention the fact that he is once again indebted to Yamato and his followers.
I just don’t know what to think anymore. Hibiki constantly promises one thing after the other, tries to follow up and always manages to fall behind on that. Yamato is always one step ahead and that really needs to stop if Hibiki actually wants to stop people from getting killed by those monsters. It’s aggravating as hell, but I guess I’ll just have to wait and see what happens next.
