I must admit that this episode was a remarkable improvement over the last one. I’m not saying that pace has finally picked up. There’s still way too much that needs to be explored and many gaps that need to be filled.
Yuuichirou finally showed us what he’s got. They, and by they I mainly mean that annoying little blonde girl, kept annoying him all day for not listening to orders and whatnot. And yeah, he didn’t really listen that good, but you know, that girl is still alive because he didn’t. She is still alive because he decided to ignore those orders and fight those bloodsuckers. He spared her from a dreadful death and he managed to kill a few of them in the process. Yes, definitely remarkable improvement over last week’s uneventful episode if you ask me. Without a doubt.
Okay, now, I would like to express my confusion about Yuuichirou’s weapon. I remember that demon saying that he needs to call out her name if he wants to benefit from her demonic powers. I have not yet seen him call her out, yet those tribal marks appeared on his face either way. Did he say it in his head? Does it work that way? Or has he simply not used the real deal yet? Because that would be strange, seeing as he encountered a noble this week and almost didn’t live to tell about it. I am really curious about how that power works and if he really needs to call out her name for him to receive her true power.Read More
Well, I suppose this was a good episode? The pace is still sickeningly slow and I don’t think that’s going to get better any time soon, but at least we got to see some action this week. No more flashback scenes all the time.
So they finally went beyond their precious walls. They left the city to do a little bit of recon. Well, that’s fine. Kill a monster here and there, you know? But that’s when they come upon a trap set by vampires; a little girl being followed by a monster. So yeah, the boys couldn’t allow that girl to get killed by that monster when they had the power to prevent that. That loli girl, a new character that’s supposed to train them, warned them not to interfere as it was a trap, but they walked right into it anyway because they didn’t want to see the girl die.
Now comes the part that really disappointed me. Yes, those idiots fell into a vampire trap when they chose to save that girl. But that’s fine now. They have their brand new weapons and their new demon friends. They were up against a couple of low ranking vampires from what I could tell. None of them had demonic weapons so they, the boys, should have been able to defeat those vampires without it being too much of a problem. What happened? They started losing pretty badly and they even ended up retreating. I know they just got those weapons, but I am really disappointed by what I saw this week.Read More
Oh my gawd. They took a whole episode last week that led to the boys reaching their new weapons. Now they took another whole episode just to show us the process of them actually obtaining those weapons. What the hell is up with this pace?
Three short posts in a row. Must be record. What a disappointing week. Yes, I seeing that girly boy lose control like that was pretty cool, but that was the highlight of this episode. We didn’t get to see any of the boys use their new-found powers. We were just shown stuff that we already knew or that most people wouldn’t even be interested in.
I cracked a smile when that commander told them that they were going to the front lines right away, but then I looked at the time and realized that the episode was already over. Was five or six minutes not enough for them to beat those demons at their own game and show us one or two moves on the frontlines for the rest of the episode? Come on… Pick up the pace already!Read More
I am going to keep this episode short. I am honestly a bit disappointed by how slow the pace has gotten. Things were so lively and interesting, but now it’s like we’re being kept on a leash. Just hurry the hell up already.
I don’t want to watch those characters’ school lives. I don’t care about any of that. I’ve dealt with a few of those episodes now, so now it’s time to focus on what comes after that; a war between vampires and demon-wielding humans. I’m sure things will speed up a bit now that those three idiots are finally getting demonic weapons of their own.
But you know what seems rather unfair to me? Vampires are stronger, faster and most of the time smarter than humans (due them a lot of them being so old and therefor wiser). Their senses are superior in every way. Demonic weapons gave humanity a chance to fight against those vampires to even out the odds, but now vampires wield those weapons as well. It seems to me that the vampires have a huge advantage.Read More
Okay, fine, I will admit that I could really use some action right about now. I am seeing too much of the same thing and it is getting a tad bit boring. At least we got to see how Mikaela became a vampire, I guess…
I must admit that it does make sense. His desire to keep his friends save and out of the hands of those vampires is what set him apart from other people. He was one of those rare ones that willingly sacrificed himself for others. Too bad that it ended up becoming his greatest flaw; he ended up fatally wounded and at the mercy of some vampire queen, whom decided to turn him into one of her kind against his will. Why? There are a number of possibilities, but I am guessing she either wanted an interesting toy or another servant/soldier to do her bidding. Why else, right?
This works, for now. Mikaela is working towards a goal; finding his long lost friend, Yuuichirou. And Yuuichirou is working towards a goal of his own; gaining power so that he can slay vampires and monsters. This works because the two of them are not really aware of each other’s situation as of yet. This will change soon though.
I am not even going to focus on Yuuichirou’s school nonsense right now. It is beginning to bore me. I’ll just end this post with a guess. I am guessing that Mikaela will either join forces with Yuuichirou to fight against the vampires or that the two of them will fight to the death and that Yuuichirou will be the one left standing at the end. I’m putting my money on door number one for the time being.Read More
