I was actually kind of pleased at how normal most of this episode was when compared to the stupefying mess that was episode 0. We follow mostly normal high school guy as he is released from hospital, reunites with childhood girlfriend who drags him off to a sword exhibit.
Then of course while viewing a guillotine he has a vision of a blonde girl singing about blood and death and later he has dreams of himself being beheaded. All pretty standard opening episode stuff really.
We even throw in a senpai who makes deliberately misleading comments on the phone to stir up the childhood friend.
Just when I think that maybe the craziness of episode 0 was just a bad dream we hit the final five minutes and off we go. Lots of names and people and random references in dialogue that makes no sense at this point between characters who can only be villains given they are all clearly unhinged. Still, this one seems watchable enough so I’ll stick it out another couple of episodes.
Thanks for reading.
