「回復術士は、セツナを手に入れる！」 (Kaifuku Jutsushi wa, Setsuna o Te ni Ireru!)
“The Healer Acquires Setsuna!”
At this point I think we’ve got the gist of weekly Kaiyari: revenge. And not just any revenge. All the revenge. What, already explicitly stated at the beginning of the series? Nawh, that was just the allure of revenge, see now we’re getting into the technical details, and those details are huge. Worried about the concept of revenge losing its luster after knocking off a few peeps? No need to worry, we’re crushing countries now.
After seeing the provocative aspects of Keyaru putting Flare in her place, the results of recruiting Setsuna were downright tame. Yeah, we got the full array of sexual exploration as is wont of our healing hero these days (nothing says fantasy PG13 like invisible blowjobs), but you know it could’ve been more, erm, in depth than the array of techniques on display. Although given it was all made up with Setsuna growing her strength through the literal consumption of sperm tells me Kaiyari has plenty of areas left to trawl for further shock and awe. After all, we haven’t seen how that healing prowess handles the finicky issues of baby making and maternal instinct just yet.
As for the immediate future, well, that has been fully answered now too. While I’m still inclined to doubt just how long Kaiyari can keep the revenge scheme interesting, upping the ante and aiming to destroy the entire kingdom is one way to ensure curiosity outweighs any immediate sense of boredom. It’s pretty obvious for example both the Sword and Cannon heroes are going to be offed sooner rather than later (or at least have a serious attempt made on them), while Keyaru’s current targeting by the royal family hints towards trouble and undesirable situations in the not too distant future. I don’t expect any of this to prove a major problem for Keyaru of course (not with abilities this ludicrous), but as a way of keeping this train brazenly riding as fast and as close to the cliff as possible for the shits and giggles? Oh yes, I expect plenty of increasingly insane carnage to grace our screens going forward.
Keyaru may have now settled on his path forward and gained some followers to boot, but the real fun and games have yet to truly begin.
