Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon 2 episode 09
Yet another good episode, but I did take notice of one thing though. Toori is always naked. I’m pretty sure that he’s appeared naked in every episode since the season began, yet in the first season things were reasonably funny. Things stop being funny when you keep seeing it every week. Hell, it’s been going from funny to downright annoying, really.
So the war, as I already foresaw, has started. Tenzou manned up, confessed his feelings for his beloved Dame Scarred and requested help from his friends. Naturally, everyone agreed to help right away, putting both England and Spain in a tight spot, as they will now have to fight against a group of mercenaries (or more commonly known as Musashi).
Now, I’m not going to dance around the fact that this has happened again (boy meets girl, girl gets taken away from boy and boy ends up saving girl at all cost). It’s a good foundation for a good story. Besides, there are several side stories this time, like trying to obtain all the Deadly Sin Armaments or Horizon as the war continues.
And finally, I would like to point out that things are getting a lot more complicated. Not the kind of complicated that gets people confused, but the kind of complicated that allows for interesting twists and good side stories. Needless to say that everything is going pretty good right now. What started out as an anti-climax has quickly turned into an amusing twenty minutes. That being said, the fact that Toori continues to appear naked worries me a little. I have seen it happen so many times, that people focus too much on all the wrong things (Zetman comes to mind here). I just hope that it doesn’t happen with Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon.
