A few notes: Firstly, I watched this episode with in stops and starts over a one hour period (slow internet is really painful). Secondly, as I am currently not at home and in the midst of a ‘weather event’ (love that terminology) I could barely hear audio for most of the episode so I’m thinking there are probably some emotional nuances that I have missed to this episode. That said, I really could not have waited another whole day before watching this. I will rewatch it some time next week in one continuous stretch.
The Village and Kiznaiver will probably still be delayed before I can watch them.
I actually kind of like the girl he rescued last week. She’s brimming with clichés but she actually works really well complimenting Atsushi in the date scene; it’s just really adorable. Dazai also performed well this episode, being flippant but not ridiculous and in honesty it looks like we’re finally going to get some of his much promised back story which will be great. Also, after this episode I now have total respect for the agency boss. My only real complaint is I’m still not seeing the port mafia as being all that much of a threat given how easily they were defeated when they charged into the agency, so it’s kind of hard to take the current situation all that seriously.
Overall though, this has been one of the my favourite episodes.
