elDLIVE Episode 10

Review:

For a show that supposedly has only 12 episodes they really aren’t making any effort to bring this season to any kind of climax. We get another kind of throw-away investigation of the week episode with some bare minimum character development propped against it in episode 10. And also a random introduction to yet another new character in the final minutes (there’s two episodes left). While I’m glad Misuzu isn’t going to be nose plugged any more and that Chuta can finally get over his rampant insecurity about his smell and start being illogically insecure about pretty much anything else, there really wasn’t any other point to anything this episode. The side characters more or less read a few lines and vanished and the actual ‘case’ was pretty pathetic.

elDLIVE is available on Crunchyroll.

  1. As much as I love this show even I can admit this episode just wasn’t that great.

    The case itself was fairly mediocre and smelled of filler. What’s sad though is despite that, it’s actually a mini arc from the Manga!

    But the real kicker for me was the introduction of this new character who is Anime exclusive. He was created by the Mangaka herself, but I have no idea how involved she actually is with the writing surrounding him and his significance to the overall plot.

    It seems with the introduction of this new character, and from the next episodes title, the series is going into Anime original material and if we only have 2 episodes left (which we still don’t know!) it’s looking unlikely that we’re going to be getting to some of the good stuff that’s been long overdue.

    The “New Darkness” arc is only 2 chapters, so maybe they’ll manage to squeeze it in, but I won’t get my hopes up. I have no idea why Pierrot decided to go in this direction. I’m pretty disappointed to be honest.

    But hey, the Chuta and Misuzu interactions were pretty great this episode as was Chuta’s casual interactions with the aliens in the cantina. That was fun!

    1. Yeah, this show continues to have glimmering moments of enjoyment but overall it just hasn’t done that much. Which is a shame because it had such a promising premise and it just seems like it won’t do anything with it this season.
