So unthreatening yet so dangerious (oh and the snow flakes from the site makes it look like a snow dino)
Honestly speaking? This was quite a disappointing and boring episode to watch as hardly anything out of the ordinary “depressive” mood established in the previous episode happened and even what minimal bit of action we got was rather lame. I can clearly see no excitement from watching Hime trying to swat a huge white blob like monster with such a small stick in comparison. The thing must have been a few stories tall and Hime was just useless against it…
Thoughts: So yea…Hime was pretty much pathetic here (no surprises) as usual when it comes to fighting. It really doesn’t seem that she is lacking training in any way but just the simple fact that she sucks at fighting and have no talent for it if she can’t become haxx after all the effort she puts into training. Though some flashbacks for her giving her some depth was welcomed. It also gave her a reason for wearing such a long scarf everytime we see here. Through some past accident she was left with a scar on her neck which was rather horrible. At that time Akina and Gin brought her a scarf to cover up the scar and so she has worn it ever since (hopefully she does wash it occasionally).
As for the other parts of the episode it is revealed that the elders want to destroy the nana-go before it causes more problem but this also means the destruction of the town for some reason. Ironically shota boy, Yuuhi, came to bring some bad news with a rather happy grin on his face. So apparently the youkai forces (whoever they are) have already taken over the nana-go so they are no longer able to destroy it. This is confirmed when the tree starts speed growing again by the end of the episode and everyone is to be evacuated to the elders cabin. With this I no longer see Yuuhi as a person on the side of “good”. It seems like whilst his sister (Nun chan!! <3) wants to save the town, Yuuhi is at a neutral stance who doesn’t really care about the fate of the town as long as the end result is entertaining for him. In other words, he is a sadistic old man.
Then we have Akina who is…useless as ever and still remains as a thorn by my side. His character is so indecisive and that is one of the worst type of characters to watch and because of this I think it is about time he gets bitch slapped for being a wuss, by Kyousuke…with his bracelet off. Even though Hime is useless, at least she tries hard to become a helpful person. The scene with her crying her eyes out on the hospital bed is more than enough proof of her resolve. While she still loves Gin, she knows of the bigger picture whereas Akina is still stuck in his own little world, trying to be carefree and ignoring the doom that is to come.
I find it especially funny when Ao came to support Hime and hinted towards Enjin’s destruction (whereas we know that Akina would no way in hell agree to that). I wonder what the spineless idiot would do next. Probably scream “ENJIN!” while watching his friends getting hurt again.
And yea, the fight in this episode was rather laughable. Just what kind of monster is that? It looks like a cross between a dino teddy and a marshmallow. Seems to be more of them in the preview but this one gets smashed by a street lamp…GO Kyousuke! Show Hime how it’s done. Also I can’t wait to see an awesome fight between him and Shinozuka.
Screen caps and “wise guy” comments:
So an entire town has to go up in flames with the trees? O.o
Not that it makes any sense at all why that is the case
How ever did you come to that conclusion?
Yet again with the mention of the “gods”
Akina trying to find out something useless? Of course it is painful you dim wit
Hime’s resolve…I kind of respect her for that
Cute scene of the day
Whatever happened doesn’t matter, it all matters that she recieved such a nasty scar
“What? I never remember giving out such an order…”
Hime may have a resolve to get rid of Enjin but she still can’t decided whether to save the town or obey her orders
YES! Thankyou for telling Akina so blatantly that even he should understand it
Right, I’ll go give the lumberjacks a call
You are weak? Sadly yess…
Blah blah, no longer able to be cut down, blah
Awww…they should take it to a zoo
She tries hard I give her that, but she has no talent as a fighter
Seems like Nun chan is a land god for the town which makes her brother?
What’s a youkai force -_____-
When nature strikes back, you better run
Sad Hime is sad
Hopefully Akina would learn a thing or two from both of them. Gin can’t be saved if you want to save the town!
Lets see if your words are true
Hell yea Kyousuke! Kick his ass
