I must admit that this episode contained some much needed action, but to call it “awesome” would be a gross exaggeration. I think the first two episodes were much better than this one if you ask me, so I’m kind of hoping that the next episode will be even better. It sure is looking promising again.
I must say that I started sighing again at first. I got this nasty feeling that it would turn out to be yet another one of those ‘easy-going’ episodes, especially when Nai started playing in the snow. I’m not willing to sacrifice twenty minutes every week to watch a gay-looking rat with red eyes playing with a miniature snowman.
It’s sad, but I actually got a little exited when they started discussing the option to dissect Nai again. I would’ve gone nuts at first, but now I don’t really care anymore. It’s really not like me to talk like that, even though I didn’t really like Nai from the very beginning. You need to be careful with guys like that, otherwise you might suddenly wake up one day to find his head between your legs.
It’s a damn good thing that the end finally ended with some action. Yogi finally transformed into a real man after being attacked by two unknown enemies. I think that’s a good thing. Now he would play around so much with that girly voice of his. The only thing that hasn’t changed is how useless Nai and Gareki are. Gareki at the very least tries, but Nai was ready to crawl into a corner and die. The only reason why Gareki survived is because of his coat, the one thing they seemed interested in. So much for a serious story, huh?Read More
Why is it that most of this episode seemed like a filler? It’s safe to say that watching Tsukumo in that cute outfit is the only thing worth watching this week. It seems like they are focussing on clothes and accessories rather than the story.
Honestly; I have nothing more to say about this episode. It was quite boring and dull. It’s the kind of episode that you watch when you’ve already watched everything else. I have been told that next week’s episode should be very promising, something about a new arc starting and whatnot, but what about this week? Should I be happy with what I saw? Hell no! Karneval in general is simply starting to get less and less interesting. It has almost gotten to the point where I’d rather review Valverave than this to be honest.Read More
You know, now that I’ve thought about it carefully I think I’d rather be writing about Valverave than Karneval, because Karneval has simply become stagnant (story-wise). Too bad that I, being my usual idiotic self, shunned Valverave because of the first episode, because it looked a bit like Gundam Seed to me.
Anyway, this episode wasn’t anything special. It was very difficult for me to stay focussed on the story. We, from the very beginning, were led to believe that Circus is no more than an international organisation that fights crime when no one else can. We’re six weeks into it and I’m starting to believe otherwise, because the methods they use aren’t exactly peaceful and humane. I understand that they’re targets aren’t exactly human either, but that doesn’t give them the right to torture them for answers. Maybe that’s just me though?
I also dislike how Gareki is constantly being portrayed as the bad guy. We all know about his bad-boy attitude, and that he’s actually a good guy beneath it all. Just stop. Just put the guy together with Nai, supposedly a gay-looking rat with red eyes in a human’s disguise, and let them continue their quest together, so that Karoku may be found in the (near) future.
Yeah, I get pretty agitated this time, but it got even worse when Tsubame actually offered her body as a test subject to see what that doctor did to her. The look on Tsukitachi’s face when she surrendered her body like that was dreadful. It was the face of a monster that had just won a battle, I don’t like it one bit.Read More
I know I won’t make any friends by saying this, but I’m really starting to lose interest in Karneval. It’s slowly getting to the point where I would call this show overrated. I was fun and interesting at first, but it has become rather predictable and dull, even when there’s a lot of action going on.
Remember those twins from Gareki’s past? Everyone knew that they were caught up in this mess as soon as we learned that they were test subjects. Some doctor had been giving them food with experimental drugs in it. Nothing is for free, people. There’s always a price attached when you look at the big picture.
Anyway, that male twin had been consuming those drugs for years, including his sister’s portions. It made him a monster, a monster without self-control that would only listen to his master (that doctor) commands. It’s quite cheap when you think about it; feed a few straights for a couple of years and earn yourself an obedient slave for as long as he or she lives.
Anyone could’ve seen this coming. I knew it was coming, but I had thought that they would drag it out for another episode, so that they could deal with him during episode six. Things took a slightly different turn but it’s not over yet. There are many more of those monsters out there and they need to be killed, so it’s only to be expected that that’s what we’re going to be seeing in the near future. Oh, and the funny thing about this all is that there’s usually an organisation behind this sort of thing. That’s (sadly) how it usually goes I’m afraid.Read More
I knew this would happen, I just knew it. Watching Karneval has taken a weird turn now that I keep thinking of a white, hairy, gay-looking rat with red eyes every time I see Nai. I can only hope that this is a temporary thing.
I thought that they would use this episode to focus a bit more in that island and everything it contained. That doctor was fascinated by Nai’s old house, the animals and the creatures that attacked them, so I thought for sure that we’d have to watch twenty minutes of him going snooping around the place.
They wouldn’t even have survived if it wasn’t for Iva, one of Circus’ members. She showed up at the last minute to prevent Gareki from getting killed by those things. I’m not a big fan of her abilities though. I suppose the author tried to create something that appealed to both sexes (he succeeded if I may say so).
The episode was mostly about Gareki and his past. He decided to go back to the village where he was once saved by a kind woman, only to find out that things had changed a bit. He even encountered a few familiar faces during his time there.
I know this sounds strange, but I’m not that interesting in Gareki. I’m not a big fan of arrogant little pricks that aren’t even half as strong as they make themselves out to be. He has a big mouth, a little brain, and very little to no strength. He’s fine if he has a gun, but it ends there.Read More
