「トラジック・アイロニー」 (Torajikku Aironii)
They say that those who are patient are usually rewarded — and I think this episode did that statement justice. So what are you waiting for? Let’s jump straight into this thing!
Finally, A Proper Opening Sequence
I don’t know if it’s the new “it” thing but I think this is the first season I’ve seen so many shows go without a proper opening for more than a few episodes. I can understand not having one for the first episode and maybe even the second but just today I remember telling a friend just how crappy this show’s opening sequence was — which was a shame since fripSide did such a great job on the song.
Six episodes in though, we finally get the awesome opening sequence that compliments fripSide’s just as awesome song. That said, I think it’s really awkward how some characters like Senju get some prominent screen time even though they’ve already passed. Because it makes it feel like she and her partner were supposed to have some greater meaning or something…
Tina Sprout, Round 2
Unlike a different psychopathic girl who’s mask wearing father may or may not be dead, my faith that Tina will not stray down the same path as Senju has been renewed. With the story making a lot of effort to heighten the sense of surprise when Rentaro and Tina met and the opening sequence showing her and Enju clearly holding hands, I can totally picture her joining the Tendou Civil Security Company. Because at the end of the day if Tina is just following someone’s orders, who’s to say that she can’t have a change of heart toward the one person who treats her like a proper human being? That and just like how Kisara pointed out, it looks like Tina hasn’t completely cast away her humanity even with the horrible living environment she’s been in!
Show Spoiler ▼
Even though I feel she’s been truly relegated to the role of true side character, I would love to see the story go into more depth behind just who she is. With this week’s episode asking a lot of serious questions about what she did before taking her current position and making us infer just why she chose to leave, I think a whole episode devoted to road mapping the back story would be great. Also, what did she talk to Enju about!? q_q
With the assassination attempt on Seitenshi being put on the backburner, I personally can’t wait to see how Rentaro deals with Tina. With the pair sharing a direct conflict of interest and Enju possibly in a precarious situation, I really hope that Tina manages to survive her encounter with Rentaro. Because as much as I would love to see Tina join the gang, I can only begin to wonder what Rentaro would do to protect Enju.
- Horie Yui on Kisara brings out the true tsundere charm~
- Goes to show you, come on too strong or too weak and you’ll lose!
- Tina is so cute q_q
- I’m so excited to see Kisara eventually kick some ass!
