SOUL EATER NOT! – 05
「お誘いふぁいてぃんぐ!」 (Osasoi Faitingu!)
Things finally got a bit fired up if you catch my drift! (BADPUN, SORRY)
Congratulations to everyone who’s finished their finals and good luck to those still studying!
Kim Diehl, Your Friendly Neighborhood Witch
As if the cut between Sid talking about just how serious a problem witches are for the DWMA straight to a depressed Kim wasn’t blunt enough, I never expected how easily Kim would get caught using her powers. Instead of blowing her cover doing something extraordinary like saving someone from turning into one of those insomniac Traitors, her sacrifices went down the tube to save a kind of stupid but awfully cute puppy.
If that last sentence sounded a bit mean, it’s because I find it hard to believe someone like Kim who’s been doing her best to alienate herself from others would make such a silly mistake. Sure it makes for the perfect moment for Jacqueline to finally confront the girl she has feelings for and make it clear that she’s there for her and not against her, but it just drives me crazy to see all of Kim’s sacrifices lose all their meaning so quickly. Maybe I expected a bit more from what I thought would be a “big” reveal? But in usual Takaii fashion, I can still see the light! Seeing how Jacqueline is the only one who happened to see Kim in the act, maybe there’ll be a bigger reveal somewhere down the line? Then again, I don’t know if I really want to see what happens should the entire DWMA figure out her true identity.
Anyways, I’m happy to see that shackles that were trailing behind Kim have been somewhat taken off. She’s an interesting character in my book and I hope that she gets some more screen time! That and with trouble brewing right around the corner, those healing hands of hers look like they’re going to come in real handy.
The Bad Guy (or Girl?) finally shows her face
Only showing up for literally a minute, the totally evil looking chick from the opening sequence finally shows her face. While she hasn’t revealed her name or what her intents are, I’m going to be honest and say that those yin-yang pupils of hers are pretty creepy when her eyes are wide open. Besides that, I don’t really have much to say since we have no idea why she’d attack the DWMA except for the fact that she’s a witch and witches typically tend to hate the DWMA.
YES! Nearly a month and a half in and it looks like Patty, Liz, and Kid are finally going to make their spectacular appearance! And judging by where in the timeline we’re currently at, we get to see Patty and Liz before they partnered up with Kid! Which you know, also means Kid should have a legitimate role in the series! And by association maybe this means Shinigami-sama himself may actually appear!? While time will only tell, I can’t wait for next week’s episode!
Or maybe Excalibur will show up and we’ll all have to stab our eyes and ears out.
