What kind of dumbass would run right into a sword deserves to die…seriously…
I think that it is rather surprising how much I enjoy watching the fight scenes in this episode purely because of the glowing red blood. It may not be realistic but heck, neither is magic. I actually love how the glowing red blood adds more spice to the battle scenes rather than boring, plain ordinary blood. This should be made into a standard!
Thoughts: *Headbangs*…damn, I’m getting quite addicted to the OP theme (and it isn’t usually the type of music I enjoy very much, I still think that there are too much spoilers in the OP sequence though).
In a way this was a major improvement from the previous episode as it did a better job at keeping my attention than watching Luke going around town with his smug look, stealing apples from vendors. But in a way, the lack of “Tear service” was somewhat disappointing. No matter, we did get introductions to other characters (and another personal favorite of mine, Legretta).
The story continues with the movement of the plot and finally some explanations on the situation given. Apparently there are two factions currently pushing one another. In one corner we have Fon master Ion trying to perserve peace and in the other corner, we have some yaro of a pope trying to start a war though he is hiding under a mask of righteousness.
Blah, blah more talking and then the gang is attacked by the Six God-Generals (but only 3 have been shown thus far). We don’t know why they attacked Jade’s ship but it has something to do with Ion thus making me suspect that they are under orders from the evil pope. Well anyway, this is where the fighting and bloodshead and moaning Luke starts…oh gosh, moaning Luke…
His personality just gets worse and worse when he started to moan about soldiers being killed. If he actually used his head a little then he would have deduced that he would have died if he doesn’t fight back but due to his cowardness and his fake sense of what is right and wrong, poor Tear was slashed in the arm…(NOOOOOOO! TEAR!!!!! ;_______; ).
The three generals introduced were Largo the Black Lion, Arietta the Wild and Legretta the Quick.
I can’t say much about Largo besides the fact that he is a big bear and died way too quickly. I actually hope that he hasn’t died yet because it hasn’t been confirmed yet and you all know the usual anime rule on that…
Arietta is surprisingly cute. The silent loli type and somewhat an opposite of Anise who is the noisy loli type character. She also seems to like Ion for some unknown reason (oooh, the mystery).
And then there is Legretta…love. But I was quite disappointed that she wasn’t as trigger happy as I have hoped she would be. She only just fired off her gun twice in this episode after the super duper Guy jumped in to save the day. But I very much like her character and look already so I hope we get some interesting development with her (and the rest of the generals).
And I missed off one more general…Asch the Bloody. He is still “a mystery to me” in a sense, but I’ve been spoilered already *sigh*.
Overall this was quite an exciting and action packed with enough explanation to go along, episode. I hope they will just keep up the pace and quality throughout the series. Go Sunrise! I say.
