SOUL EATER NOT! – 09
「カボチャ、グローウィン!」 (Kabocha Gurooin!)
In a rather unexpected move, it seems we’ll have to wait at least one more week before things start getting serious.
Four Episodes in One?
In a rather unexpected move, this week’s episode felt like a throwback to the old 90′s cartoons with that distinct separation between skits. While I’m not quite sure what the episode as a whole was trying to accomplish, I’ll admit that it was pretty fun to see just how much of a pickle Meme got herself into with that crappy memory of hers. While it not have affected her directly, it does make me curious about just how many sticky situations she’s ended up in before.
Baseball for Dummies
Maybe Tsugumi should have said “Cricket” for Anya but it’s pretty tough for me to believe that someone in this day and age would have no idea what baseball is. Seeing how it’s crossed borders and become popular in other countries as well as foreign players making it big in America — an wealthy and intelligent girl like Anya should have at least some idea of what it is. At least, that’s what I want to believe. Because after watching her successfully hit Tsugumi’s pitch like a true fighter, I was a bit speechless in both a good and bad why.
Looking Forward to Halloween
While I was almost 100% confident that nothing important would happen, the last few minutes of the episode managed to reel me back in with the promise of what’s to come. With Shaula brought back into the spotlight and Sid and company still searching any leads that might lead them to her, I’m really hoping the last few episodes start to ramp things up. But let’s not forget about the big decision that Tsugumi needs to make soon. I read down in the comments that some of you think she’ll end up getting the best of both worlds but the feelings I’m getting from the show leads me to think otherwise.
Anyways, what did you think of the episode? Did you enjoy that change in the format? See you down in the comments!
