「死神の時間 後編」 (Shinigami no Jikan Kouhen)
“Shinigami Time Sequel”
I think this may have been the best episode yet. Actually, I’m just going to say that this was the best episode ever.
I’ve always wondered just how much power and skill Karasuma-sensei was hiding under that fitted suit of his. Seeing how he was tasked with taking out the biggest threat the earth has ever seen, I guess it’d make sense to assume he’d have the chops to handle most precarious situations. That said, facing the self proclaimed “number one assassin” probably wasn’t on that list. Luckily, Karasuma-sensei came online in the most epic way possible. Leaving me dumbstruck with just how intense he became, every moment after he took off his suit jacket was pure bliss. As for the cherry on top, it was so satisfying watching him land the best falcon punch right on The Shinigami’s disfigured face. Man, I can still feel the shivers running down my back!
So after an amazing performance, who would have thought he’d be so smooth when it came to patching things up with Irina? From the beautiful rose to some well spoken words, it makes you wonder just how many ladies would be chasing after him if he wasn’t such a stickler for his work!
While Karasuma-sensei stole the show for me, it was nice to see Irina snap back to reality after a nice jolt from some falling rubble. Using the puzzle analogy to describe what she lacks, it’s good to see
she’s grown as a person and probably has a few less pieces missing. Which is a great thing since it feels like there’s going to be people even more troublesome than the Shinigami coming soon and it’ll take everything Irina has to stay on top of it.
With each passing episode, I can’t help but feel that things are slowly getting darker. While it may just be the themes that each mini-arc plays with, there’s no denying that the end of the world is growing closer with each passing episode. And as that deadline draws closer, who know’s what’ll happen when the people in power start fearing for their existence? Amazingly, it looks like we know what might be coming in the form of this “Last Assassin” operation. A name so vague that it could literally mean anything!
In any case, I’ll catch you guys next week. See ya!
