「前奏曲」 (Zensoukyoku)


Next Episode:
「ポルカ 雷鳴と雷光」 (Poruka, Raimei to Raikou)
“Polka, Raimei and Raikou)

As hinted by the title, this episode served as a prelude to the Raimei/Raikou sub-plot, which will undoubtedly pick up as the siblings square off next time. Aside from that, it seems like our poor Yoite only has several months left to live, given how he uses his Kira jutsu so liberally. In particular, the adverse effects of the jutsu have already taken a toll on his body (more specifically, his hands), so I guess that explains why he wears gloves all the time. Despite a relatively dialogue intensive episode, I found this one particularly interesting as Miharu finally made it clear to Kumohira that he plans to use the Shinrabanshou for Yoite’s sake. To add a further twist to this, Kumohira’s declaration that he would kill Miharu if he tried to use the hijutsu contradicted his earlier words to him about becoming stronger than anyone else, becoming the Ruler of Nabari, and personally not wanted to kill anyone while protecting Miharu. I guess in the last case, that doesn’t involve Miharu himself. There were also a few more hints about what happened that night when Kumohira ran away with Miharu on his back, which involved the Shinrabanshou and the loss of everyone’s memories, except for Kumohira’s. I still see this as the main twist of the series, so I’m keen on finding out more about that. Next time, Raimei and Raikou perform a samurai polka dance (err… fight)!

    -______- does it matter who’s first?
    anyways, fast as always, Divine, thanks! (I’ll check back later for summary, but it looks like the next two eps are focused on Raimei and Raikou)… And hopefully, Yoite is still hanging in there?!

    Yoite! Jeez, I never knew his hands were black, I thought they were just burnt. I feel so bad for him. His life really sucks. I also am excited for more Raikou, he’s so cute. But I’m most excited about what happens to Yoite and Miharu next. It’s cute. Anyway, thanks for the blog! Keep it up. ^_^

    i think Miharu will use the Shinra to heal Yoite instead…after alll the shinrabanshou is the ultimate skill it makes you like a God…

    @Julius: Well said. Couldn’t have said it better than myself.

    I mean, for gawd’s sake, don’t even leave a comment if it has nothing at all to do with the main post itself!!!!

    That said, this week’s ep. leaves me wondering whether Kumohira would really do something so drastic to Miharu as for using the shinrabanshou for Yoite.
