Another episode, another chance and yet another mistake on Nanami’s part. That girl will never learn to mind her own business. She refuses to accept the fact that there are things in that world that she shouldn’t meddle with.
But first; we have this demon that used to raise hell alongside Tomoe. He is trying hard to get his own body back and he even got the help of the same demon that sealed away the soul of that old Tengu, even though he was recently defeated by Nanami, a girl that doesn’t even know how to use her powers properly. Still, the guy went back to the netherworld in search of his body and actually found out where they kept it (or rather tried to destroy it). Now all he has to do is ask Tomoe for his help, seeing as he’s probably the only one that can do something about those flames.
That’ll have to wait though. Tomoe is busy trying to learn more and more about Nanami and her past. I certainly can’t blame him; I for one loved those scenes. I know that Nanami’s upbringing was irregular to say the least, but you can clearly tell that she had parents that cared about her, even if her father was a lowly gambler that gambled away all of their money and if her mother was dying from some illness that they haven’t yet told us about (I think). It is simply amazing that she turned out so well even though she had a father like that and had to spend most of her time growing up without her mother by her side. That’s very, very impressive.Read More
I suppose this was a really good episode in general. A lot of good things happened and I am pretty sure that more good things are about to happen. That all being said, I cannot help but feel that one or two things did not go as I had hoped.
First thing’s first; that insane mercenary was allowed to leave after all the thing that he had done. He raped Maria, gave her to the church and almost killed the boy that Maria loves. When is it enough? Why is he not being punished for his crimes? I understand that Maria hates violence and will always interfere when war breaks out. But did she really have to be like that when it involved the one guy that took everything from her? The one guy that almost got her killed. It was more than just foolish to let him go with that horrible woman, especially after she acted like a complete idiot.
It goes without saying that this story would’ve gone completely different if it were up to me. It probably would’ve been a horrible story, but I would’ve had that guy die a hundred times over. I would’ve removed a limb during every episode. His other arm during this week, a leg next week, the other leg the week after that, and so on…
Still, a lot of good came from it. Maria has her power back, she has a boyfriend now and she’s standing face to face with Archangel Michael once more. I doubt they’re going to fight again, but something tells me that Maria is going to be victorious if they were to find one another. I don’t know why. All that’s left now is to see what kind of happy end we’ll get to see.Read More
I think it is fine that Nanami chooses to help everyone she encounters. It’s very noble of her I suppose, but at one point she will overreach and find herself in a situation where her talismans and chats won’t help her.
Nanami decided to follow in that Tengu, as everyone already expected once again, into the darkness where a lightning beast of sorts lives. She just doesn’t learn that her being there doesn’t always help. Yes, she can be useful, but mostly she’s just in over her head. I mean, her interference nearly cost that Tengu his life and it still isn’t known if he’ll ever fly again even though he took some of those divine peach pills. Not to mention the fact that both of them would’ve been dead if Tomoe didn’t come to her aid at the right moment as usual. I really like Nanami, but I am getting tired of her constant meddling.Read More
I am really happy that Maria has made all of those friends recently. She may not have her powers back, but she has friends that are willing to support and help her now that she needs it. That just goes to show that she doesn’t stand alone, at least.
So Maria was supposed to die at the stake for being a witch. They were planning on burning her even though she saved their lives many times over. It makes you wonder why she even wanted to help them. The war has started once again and things are getting out of hand. Many people are dying and many properties are being destroyed now that Maria isn’t around to prevent them from going to war. People must’ve realized this by now, so why support the church when they are so useless instead of supporting Maria, whom has been stopping one war after the other all this time? It’s so stupid.
I also thought that that English witch was quite right when saying that the angels and that their creative is wrong. They do now know love because love if something that humans created. It’s something that defines humanity, so it is only natural that the heavens don’t understand it. She definitely won that argument, even though she nearly got killed.
What now? As Maria going to get her powers back? Is she going to fight the heavens again? There are, if I am correct, two episodes left so a lot can still happen, but I suspect that that mysterious entity is going to involve itself with Maria soon. Why else approach Maria regularly like that? It obviously has plans for Maria.Read More
And once again Nanami sticks her nose where it just doesn’t belong. She is so nosey that one of these days she’ll get into so much trouble that even Tomoe won’t be able to save her. At this pace it’s only a matter of time.
So Nanami found the Tengu chief and discovered that his soul had been sucked out of his body, meaning that those divine pills of her wouldn’t do a darn thing. All they could do what find out where that soul of his was being kept and try to restore it somehow. I’m not even going to say how surprised I was when I saw Nanami defeat that evil creature with only one chant. I never would’ve imagined that she had that in her. I thought that Tomoe would escape that prison and rush to save Nanami at the very last second as usual. Nice little surprise…
I guess I’m a little disappointed that Tomoe got captured so easily. From that idol Tengu I expected nothing less. I have always seem Tomoe as this strong, badass character that would do anything to prevent Nanami from getting hurt. This episode changed my image of him a little. It was very disappointing to see him lose so easily. I mean, he didn’t even really try to do anything to stop himself from getting captured by that Tengu. He just stood there with a dumb look on his face as it happened.Read More
