Seraph of the End episode 03
Okay, an interesting episode, but also a highly predictable twist. I just don’t understand why people reacted so surprised. I read two different topics about how public are shocked about this episode’s ending. Why? I could’ve told you that this would happen after I saw episode one.
I don’t like to start right on the twist. I like to review an episode as it goes. But hey, this is my blog and my will is law here. People are so damn surprised that Mikaela, Yuuichirou’s friend, is still alive. They are also surprised that he has been turned into a vampire. Fine, I will admit that I did not expect him to be a vampire, but I was completely certain that he was still alive. We never actually saw him die. We only really saw how Yuuichirou escaped. The rest was very vague. This made things very easy to predict. They focussed so much on Mikaela that there’s no way that they would kill him off right away.
Anyway, Yuuichirou is doing his best. He is still not worried about partnering up with someone and only cares about slaying vampires. The problem with that is that he’s lacking in many departments. He has no experience, knowledge or weapon to take on those vampires. Especially not one that’s equipped to fight against demon-wielding humans.
Also, Yuuichirou came into contact with a demon that takes on the form of an axe. I honestly don’t think that they match. Yuuichirou should not wield an axe. A scythe maybe, but definitely not an axe. He should just stick to blades. Seeing that kid swing a blade would be ridiculous. A scythe is big too, but at least those look kind of awesome.
