Gen’ei wo Kakeru Taiyou – 09
「月の光、太陽の陰」 (Tsuki no Hikari, Taiyou no In)
“The Moon’s Light, The Sun’s Shadow”
This is a far more interesting threat.
Ginka’s Dad Remembers
Not much to say other than that I’m surprised that Ginka’s dad remembers about Ginka / realizes that she has died. I’m not sure whether it’s because he knew about the elemental tarot users or because the way Ginka died was special, but that sure does hurt. Then the triplets start talking about where Ginka-oneechan went to…to? Don’t you cheapen this by making her have teleported somewhere or something!
Ohhh who am I kidding, they’re going to do whatever. Surprise me in a good way please, AIC.
Yuri, Yuri Everywhere!
Time to say something controversial – I’m getting tired of all the yuri. Once in a while is entertaining, and stories centered around it can be great, but sprinkling it into damn near everything just gets tiresome. Luna loves Akari, we get that. Yes, it’s really been more of an admiration for an older sister type – up until they slept together, that is. It just doesn’t seem to add anything, and is just for titillation – titillation which doesn’t even really work. Maybe I’m just overloaded, but I’m growing tired of this.
An Interesting New Threat
The original daemonia were interesting because they forced the main characters to kill innocents, but as soon as Akari started playing therapist and they could hear the victims asking to be killed, that lessened. The counterpart cards I disliked from the beginning, especially once the triplets managed to design a decoy out of nowhere a mere episode after Ginka’s death. This new threat though, Daemonia Luna…this could be fun. I don’t know how much of Luna will still be within her, but this presents Akari and Seira with a new level of an old problem – whether to kill those who have been taken over by a Daemonia. They always have, but now it will be their friend, their precious, innocent Luna-chan. Should be fun to see what they do.
Oh, and it’s less of an ass pull since they’ve already established that creepy can make people into Daemonia. I appreciate that.
What’s ahead is fairly obvious – the confrontation with Daemonia Luna. I’ll be interested in seeing how that turns out, but my money is on the body count rising higher. I know, where do I get the gall to guess such a thing? What can I say, I’m a rebel.
tl;dr: @StiltsOutLoud – An obvious “twist” may lead to a more interesting confrontation than we’ve had so far. Luna-chan, noooo!! #geneitaiyou 09
- Luna didn’t wonder why her onee-chan suddenly showed up without having aged? Called it from the very beginning that this Akari was fake. Easy plot twist, try to do better next time!
