Oh no, they finally decided to ask how Anzai could be half-devil when humans and devils can’t have sex. This anime really knows how to ask and not answer the difficult questions.
Well, they didn’t throw any illogical plot developments at us this week but rather spent some time on the fallout of last week’s public slasher attack. This brought Tsukasa and Lee back to Anzai and the other police and set up a nice clear antagonist for them to munch on later in the series. However, does this reasonably logical plot development actually improve the overall anime?
At five episodes in, I still don’t get why Tsukasa and Anzai are a thing. She’s clearly head over heels in love and he’s at least obsessed with her, though I still haven’t figured out when either one had the time to develop anything close to a feeling for the other one. As for the support cast in this tragic tale, they are barely names and faces that blip in and out of existence. So while this episode marks a turning point in that everything that happened in it seemed sensible in light of previous episodes, that doesn’t make this series somehow good. In point of fact, it just reminds us that somewhere underneath all the overly dark sequences there might have been a half-decent story to be explored.
