So we’re still seeing what happened in Dazai’s past and I’m still much more interested in this than anything I saw in season 1. That said, the end of the episode is one of those inevitable outcomes that you can see coming but still make you pay attention to exactly how it unfolds. I’m still wondering why they are now wanting us to take the Port Mafia seriously when they spent most of season 1 making them look pretty pathetic, but that’s a minor quibble really. The question then becomes, what will next week brings us? Will we get some more of this darker series with only the occasional interjections of action and humour or will we go back to over-the-top hit-and-miss comedy with occaisonal action and more serious moments?
