Hell yea, Anise you are such a meanie
Now who would have thought that Arietta was raised by the very same Liger mother that our very own heros brutally murdered the other day? Not only that, they didn’t even spare her unhatched eggs. Those are Arietta’s brothers and sisters you know! How could you be so cruel!
Thoughts: Despite reading about how annoying or boring Arietta is as a character, I actually felt rather sorry for her and will at least offer some sympathy. This isn’t because she is the silent loli type with a potential heavily tragic past (oh no, not that being raised by wild animals is tragic at all) but because she has yet to do anything wrong so far so it is kind of unfair to critisize her…and because she looks so huggable
I found this episode to be pretty much on par with the previous one so it wasn’t bad but still isn’t outstanding. But being inoffensive as well I still find myself enjoying this series more than I should…for the moment anyway. This series has proven to be quite enjoyable and relaxing to view and it is one of those series where you won’t want to ask for more even if there is space for improvement.
The episode starts off with showing that Tear is fine and well (thankgod to some haxx/godlike healing on her part, seriously) and they party journeys on through a fiend infested forest. After a quick fight scene, which showed off some quality, Guy learns about this scary person called Anise (“everything is find because it IS Anise” ~ Scaryyy).
Well soon enough Guy finds out that this Anise is a girl and of the worse kind for him being loli AND clingy. Speaking about Guy, I am now interested in what kind of past he has had to lead him to have such a flashback when Anise jumped onto him. It seems like his gynophobia isn’t something he was born with but something that developed sometime in his past. The falling woman in his flashback…mother? sister? girlfriend? Whoever she is, it seems like her death may have caused Guy to be in fear of the opposite sex.
Blah, blah some talking and then we see Arietta crashing in front of the party telling them to come to “x” place if they want to save the hostages. This lead the party into a fight with her in some castle and boy does she have a lot of animal guardians
Meanwhile, Luke is crap and gets kidnapped into some lab where horrible experiments a unfolded onto him by a mad scientist called Dist who has insanely long and CG animated arms (WTF).
I felt sorry for Arietta to see her animal friends getting hurt but she should have been prepared for that. But I will still give her some sympathy because she is being manipulated by others who do have some sort of evil plan in mind. What Arietta did was to follow her gut feelings of wanting revenge for her mother and those feelings where exploited and used to do someone else’s dirty work (glares at Asch the Bastard).
But the episode ends well with Ariette behind bars (okay, that is sad) and Luke being saved. Though his biological data was ripped off by Dist and god knows what he would be doing with it…probably clone an army of Luke for his own enjoyment? He seems like that type of fellow anyway.
Screen caps and “wise guy” comments:
MMM…Tear’s sleeping face
With healing powers like that, fatal injuries are a thing of the past
Indeed, it should be YOU who should do the apologizing
Kyaaa~ Jya nai!
I love this scene :p
But Luke, you need to grind to level up and that takes hard work (which understandably you aren’t used to)
Anise…who the heck is this monster
I have said too much 😡
You still don’t know? O.o
Basically that in a nutshell
Angst, tragic, angst ;____;
(For the reply, refer to the top image)
Awww, you guys don’t have to go out on a limb for some nameless character
Some deep…dark…past huh
But its just typical to have amnesia at the important points
So does Anise
This is another hint that she is fighting for Ion’s affection just like Anise is. It will be interesting to find how and why Ion didn’t chose Arietta instead
Those CG arms are “quality” and hilarious at the same time
Now lets see what is so special about Luke’s data…maybe they will find a cure for his ass-like personality
LOL ~ They sure posed for that picture 😄
