「消えない過去、消えていく未来 -no news was good news-」 (Kienai Kako, Kieteiku Mirai -no news was good news-)
“The Past That Doesn’t Disappear, The Future that Disappears -no news was good news-“
It feels like we’re watching an abridged anime, except we’re not. (I mean that in a good way)
I may be in the minority on this, but I’m actually really enjoying everything that SukaSuka has been throwing at us. Something that I’m sure you’ve picked up if you’ve been following my posts. In any case, let ‘s dive straight into this week’s post since this episode was definitely a lot different than the others.
To kick things off, can we just all take a moment and marvel at how amazing it was to see that old grandpa lose all sense of age while talking with Willem? As someone who’s lived over five hundred years as a necromancer, you’d think he’d be able to keep his composure a little better. But I guess whenever anything involves our boy Willem, it’s a recurring pattern that something out of the ordinary will happen. Random patterns aside, I really appreciated that this week’s episode finally took some time to properly explain just what’s going on in the world of SukaSuka. Filling us in on all the small details as well as fleshing out the ideas that we kind of already knew about, I loved how even with a massive dump of information you could still tell that there is a lot still hiding and waiting to be discovered. Especially when you think about why the beast known as Eboncandle that Willem sacrificed his life to slay would be helping the Great Sage. Or more specifically, why would Eboncandle use so much energy to keep the floating cities in the sky instead of regenerating his body? A question that I’m not sure if Willem asked to himself because of how focused he became on how the creation of fairies works.
Giant state secrets aside, I would personally like to know just what in the world happened to Ctholly. We got a pretty basic explanation, but seeing how she managed to come back from the brink of losing her mind, it’d be nice if the show gave us a little more than just “she probably sacrificed something pretty significant”. But I guess if I’m being truly honest, I’m pretty happy that the characters are smart enough to realize that the power of love may be strong, but there’s probably other outside forces at work.
Anyways, another great episode if you were to ask me. We got to see more of Willem’s past, there was an old grandpa who was so teretere that you’d have to question if he was really a grandpa, and Ctholly seems to be back in shape for whatever the future episodes hold. All-in-all, not too bad for a single episode wouldn’t you say? In any case I’ll catch you guys here next week where it looks some new characters are finally going to make their appearance. See you then!
