「悪の幹部の泣かせ方」 (Aku no Kanbu no Nakasekata)
“How to Make an Evil Leader Cry!”
Now that was everything I hoped it would be. Demonic fights; more
future ancient technology teasing; Snow being a dumb dumb – yes I can say my Sunday humour needs have thoroughly been met. The best part though? Still one episode of insanity to go.
In light of prior episodes having Heine turn into a good girl wholly unfit for use and abuse (mostly) was both unsurprising and an absolute treat to see. Demon girl doing good, wanting to save the world, and dangerously approaching ara ara territory? Oh god please, my heart can only take so much. Hell she even suggests an interest in grounding the very misanthropic Russell who you know full well is related to Rose and her daddy in some capacity for added adorableness. The only thing which makes it better is watching Six and Alice go full-bore evil since I never expected Alice to actually encourage Six into legitimately evil activities, but hey, there’s always a first. Remember, Alice even had the cojones to say the quiet part out loud.
Such mashups, however, only account for half the fun of this week. Six after all really found his groove with that kick into the afterlife, while Grimm just keeps on adding reasons for why you never let her leave the house. Snow though definitely wins outright for me as she’s pretty much jumped from simple greed right into the confines of obsessed gambler through the repeated doubling down on purchases which blow apart in her hands. And the reaction faces, do not forget the reaction faces. It’s almost enough to have me forget about the ominous juxtaposition of future tech in fantasyland, but considering Russell has landed himself a big giant robot to serve as the final boss, I think such curiosity will be sated in one way or another.
There may not wind up being much in the way of storybook ending for Sentouin’s grand finale next week, but rest assured the entertainment value will be through the roof.
