KYAAAAAAAAAA~ Kawaii yo~
Oh yes, my fanboy sense is tingling again with yet another pleasant side of Tear being shown. She is afraid of ghosts! *Kyakya~fanboy screams!* Sadly though, she is still failing to make much of an impact on the series (which was a point I moaned about last week) but I guess giving her some spotlight, however trivial, is better than nothing…
Thoughts: A few things happened in this week’s episode so I guess I will start with the least important event. Yep…Ion is kidnapped yet again by one of the 6 God generals and what do you know, Asch is behind it again. You would think that MASTER Ion would put up more resistance to these kidnappings but I guess his body isn’t in the best condition to be fighting. Come to think…why is he so weak despite being named a master? I would expect someone like him to be kicking ass for the sake of peace or at least look a bit older. But the fact that he is easily worn out by using even a little of his powers is worrying…
Then comes the main bulk of the episode. Luke and his merry troops figure out a plan to get to Akzeriuth (okay, credits go to Jade and him only) through the use of decoys so that separates Luke from his loving master. But I find this a bit suspicious as it leaves Van with no one to keep a watch on him…which means…
But upon finding out that Ion needs saving again, the gang had to leave the city through the use of an abandoned underground dungeon true to an RPG game. Though they could have made the “creeps” in the dungeon a bit more creative rather than having some overgrown spiders that all looks and no fight. Not that I am that bothered by this as I did find the long (and random) conversations through the dungeon quite interesting.
Heck, I even found it amusing when Luke was revealed to be “lolicon” for anise (har, har). Oh and I forgot to mention Natalia. She officially joins the group after blackmailing Luke…or rather, she just told him that she knows his secret with Van and that she would NEVER tell anyone else and he still offered her a place in the party…this proves that honesty is the best policy ^^
Speaking about Natalia, I found her flashback to be quite touching. I feel sorry for her to have to put up with someone like Luke before and after his memory loss. Even at such a young age she is really devoted to him and it is just heartbreaking watching her cry over spilt milk. Luke was beyond saving but with enough love and care, she was able to bring him back on his feet…though his jack ass personality much be hereditary and damn him for not being grateful for all that she has done for him. *Shrugs*
But Natalia is definitely a likeable character not to mention strong too. Thankgod that she isn’t a damsel in distress which makes her “refined oujo sama” type character hold some respect at least.
And before we leave her and Luke, there is this thing about a pinky swear…I think she has every right to find it strange that Luke gave her a pinky swear when he used to hate them (and I mean HATE if you look at the flashback) before the memory loss episode. So what is that about?
Tear is moe with her “fear of ghost tsun” but that is all there is…she needs to do something other than offer cheap comedy relief *sobs*
Then we have the most important event in this episode, Luke and his meeting with Asch and their establishment that they look the same (shock, horror!). I think the impact of this revelation would have been better if Asch’s face wasn’t plastered all around the OP. The hilarious thing was that they even tried to hide his face in the episode by using black censoring shadows ROFL~
Perhaps Sunrise expected no one to make the connection beforehand or that they didn’t expect the OP sequence to be watched? Either way, it was hilarious 😄
Though they did make Asch’s hair look similar to Luke’s this meeting compared to the OP. Maybe he ran out of hair gel? But seriously, just what is the meaning of this? Is Asch a twin of Luke or is he a clone? They look too similar to be just a coincidence not to mention how Asch was able to brain haxx into Luke’s mind and tell him their location. I suspect that there will be a major fight come next episode.
And so, Luke heads off right into a trap like the hero that his master has always wanted…oh and Largo is still alive after being rammed through the chest by Jade.
Screen caps and “wise guy” comments:
Kidnapping GET! And what the hell is up with that belly button >.>
Jade’s smart decoy plan
See? Because it was Van who suggested it I am being cautious…
Oi…this isn’t a honeymoon
Yea, yea…this makes it the 10th time this month (yare yare)
Indeed, good thing Guy has an idea. Lets go to the sewers!
Methinks this time Mohs has nothing to do with Ion’s kidnapping
LOOK WHO’S TALKING YOU IDIOT!
And Anise can just shut up too
A honorable princess sama
Luke hated pinky swears? O.o
Natalia is not only pretty, she is also smart 🙂
LOL censors…I mean…what is Ion referring to? Hmm…
Jade is a genius!
It’s exhausting to be a fanboy ;____;
Just look at that face of disgust when Natalie tried to give him a pinky swear
Such a lame excuse for a boss
Finally! they asked the question I was hoping they would ask since Jade first materialised his spear
For an oujo type character, oh my god does she have manners ^^
“Dun, dun DUNNNNN!”
He seems to be looking straight at Natalia in this scene…
And he doesn’t deserve that coushy life one bit
Walking right into a trap eh…
