God Eater episode 03
This turned out to be quite the amusing episode. People are still moaning about how this doesn’t live up to some of Ufotable’s other works. Stop crying and enjoy the show. I think it’s a really entertaining show and it’ll probably only get better.
I think this week’s episode was a bit better because there was a subtle combination of information about characters and their weapons and quite a bit of action. We learned, thanks to Alisa, that new-type girl, that their new-type weapons have the ability to devour those monsters and absorb their “energy” in order to turn that into ammo for their long-ranged mode. I think that’s absolutely brilliant. They don’t have to carry around all that ammo. They can just switch their weapons back into sword mode and send it out to devour one of those monsters in order to replenish their ammunition. That should make them a lot more mobile since they won’t have to carry all that stuff.
I’ve seen quite a bit of those new-types this week. I think Lenka’s melee mode looks cooler, but Alisa’s longer-ranged mode, that awesome-looking minigun, looks so much better than Lenka’s canon. That does not change the fact that Lenka, despite it being his second battle ever, performed just as well as Alisa, whom seems to be experienced in battle.
Alisa also strikes me as a little rebel. I hope I’m right. She refused the help from others because she didn’t want to abandon her comrades and she even whooped Lenka’s ass in order to prove her point. I like that. People that follow orders blindly are the ones that die first. So keep on rebelling as much as you think is necessary!
