「キサラギ幹部、配信します！」 (Kisaragi Kanbu, Haishin Shimasu!)
“Kisaragi Leaders Will Be Livestreamed!”
Normally I’d be a little miffed at getting a filler episode with barely two weeks left to go, but I think I can throw Sentouin some slack. Sure, it was pure fan service, yes it didn’t really add much to the overall premise, but in the end are you really complaining? That’s right, didn’t think so. Whoever said mad scientists didn’t have a heart?
Given how the proceedings went this week nothing much to really say: Lilith took the potential of Dr. Octopus almost to its logical conclusion, Belial got to showcase some of that fiery yet fun personality, and Astaroth, well, remains far too wholesome for this crew of misfits. Lilith without a doubt though steals the show here, as between showing just where Six gets his inspiration for Evil Point generation and going all out to keep up Kisaragi’s evil persona, she’s quickly rocketing up my scoreboard. I am a little surprised by Lilith not being legitimately near the top of Kisaragi’s internal rankings, however; given it seems like every other field agent is a lolicon in this organization (seriously), you’d think they would overwhelmingly go for the washboard over the considerable tracts of land. Guess it must just come down to personality in the end – hell, even I’m a terrible sucker for cute and bashful.
Otherwise the real fun naturally lies in what comes next. After this little diversion it’s full-on tomb raiding time, and that means showdowns, discoveries, and more demon girl suffering than you can shake a camera-equipped tentacle with. I have no idea what Six and friends will find on their latest foray, but I do know the results are going to be glorious.
After all, when your high spec android has the art of manipulation down pat, rest assured your gang is in for the adventure of a lifetime.
