“Lightning Blade Speed”
Man, when it someone who isn’t prestigious going to appear?
They say in any successful deal, both parties end up benefiting in some way or another. With the thought being you don’t want to slit the throats of the people who you may need in the future, it’s tough to say who’s really getting the better end of the Allekant-Seidoukan partnership. Sure, if anything comes to fruition it’ll probably be Seidoukan who has ownership of the weapon seeing how they’re handling 70% of the cost, but it makes you really wonder what Claudia and the higher ups have planned. Because as far as I’m concerned, if Ayato isn’t the one behind the plan, I’m willing to bet there’s an ulterior motive somewhere.
Good Guy Lester
As happy as I was to see Lester alive and kicking, I was extremely happy to see the big oaf express his gratitude to Ayato. While it might have been awkward for him to actually get the words out, you have to give him credit for keeping a straight face and not letting an ounce of blush leak out.
Also, Saya managed to come back to live as well! Nice to see the childhood friend make her return after such a long absence.
Camilla Pareto and Ernesta Kuhne
With two brilliant minds from Allekant showing up all of a sudden, it looks like the story isn’t afraid to introduce us to some of the bosses that are coming later down the road. With Camilla brewing up a storm with Saya and Ernesta pushing all the right buttons to fluster Ayato (and piss off every other girl in his harem), it feels like the two are going to be formidable opponents. Also, and this is a side note, but I loved Ernesta’s personality. Embodying the truly evil scientist who has a super cutesy exterior, there was something extremely appealing about all of her actions.
Looking Ahead (and Kirin)
With things moving along quickly, it looks like it’ll be time for some true battling within the next few weeks. While I would have liked more information about what Allekant has planned for the Festa, I’m sure we’ll find out whatever it is they’re up to when the time comes. Also, even though it felt like Kirin got a lot of screen time, nothing really happened! Besides showing Ayato capturing another girl into his posse, we didn’t really learn all that much about the Rank One of the academy. Hopefully she’ll get a lot more screen time next time we see her!
Anyways, I’ll catch you guys next week and I hope you had a great Halloween!
- Head hurts from too much fun. Will write notes next week.
