I had figured that it might be the case but Enjin’s appearance in front of Ao was really as anticlimatic as I had feared it to be…
Thoughts: Even though having Ao fight her own brother at such a time and place would be quite weird, they should have at least allowed Enjin to say something to her to make her shat bricks. But despite this it was interesting to find out that Ao never knew where went…or rather it is hinted that she had thought that her brother was dead all along. So what is this secret about Gin being controlled by Enjin? Are only selected people allowed to know the truth whereas everyone else is left in the dark. I suspect that Ao and Kotoha joined Hime and Akina after Gin left them…
For the rest of the episode though, Kotoha took the spotlight and we begin to go into her past digging up some interesting facts of what seems like quite a disturbing and tearful childhood. But I have to say that the way the story was being presented could have been done a lot better.
Starting with some lighter stuff we see that Kotoha is some Germany maniac for some reason. Don’t ask me why she loves the country so much as I have no idea why but it is obvious that she wants to go around there on a holiday and that chance came when she somehow acquired a ticket. Though she also showed off an unusually scary “berserk” side to her personality when Hime accidentally destroyed that ticket. No sympathy for Hime though seen as it was her fault for being such a selfish “oujo sama”.
But I did wonder why can’t Kotoha just summon herself another ticket…
Nevermind, after trying to blast Hime to kingdom come Akina revealed another interesting (or should I say confusing?) fact about Kotoha’s past. What is being implied is that she never used to have Youkai powers and they just somehow developed after she “got influenced”, whatever that means…
Up until now I thought that Kotoha was the offspring of a youkai and a human so this theory of being able to “turn youkai” is definitely confusing to accept.
Meanwhile, Enjin is having trouble surpressing Gin within subconcious so he ordered to be left alone and that Shinozuka is free to do whatever he wants which means that he can burn the whole town down if he so pleases. But he has his eyes set on Kotoha instead for some reason…some reason which I think isn’t just as simple as saying that they are “alike”.
Kotoha falls into his trap because he kidnaps her friends and soon finds out that she is no match for him even when using gates of machine guns…or axes. Shinozuka continues to mind rape Kotoha into submission but luckily she is saved by Hime and the others before her brain turns completely into mush.
The fight scene was quite boring and repetitive with Shinozuka flash stepping through everything. Though I am glad that they way the fight ended was hilarious…with Hime deflecting a tank bullet right at him (muhahahah~).
And so another exciting episode of yozakura Quartet ends with Kotoha losing her voice from going “DADADADADADADADADA~” too much. Yare yare.
Screen caps and “wise guy” comments:
Attack of the crows and Enjin disappears -____-
I would be surprised if Ao’s isn’t the least bit suspicious about that comment…so I am surprised
Whatever huh…I am badass and powerful so…hmm
I really wish that that song is banished to hell
What? No service? boo~
Poor Kyousuke 😄
Now if Hime was actually flat chested the reaction would have been even funnier
Kotoha’s precious ticket…
and to add insult to injury
You knows that whenever Kotoha sticks out her tongue is bad news
And for Kyousuke, he is pretty manly to jump in front of a missile
Kotoha is lying…blatantly 😄
Flashback of a traumatic past…I think you guys can guess that she burned something
Not even flying axes are enough to scare this guy…oh my god
Hime to the rescue!
And after all that Kotoha loses her voice…
Hime to the rescue again…or not…
