Izetta: The Last Witch Episode 2

Review:

Okay, the flashback this episode (one of them at least) really confirmed that there’s a strong chance that ‘last’ is more hyperbole than actual fact so it will be interesting to see if another witch does turn up in the course of this series. Otherwise, Izetta is doing some great chase sequences. Last week on the train and this week on the flying rifle. At last however the Princess has been returned and now our characters finally have an opportunity to make some choices rather than just react to things. I was very caught up in the show this week, so much so that the ending kind of took me by surprise. Really looking forward to the next episode.

Izetta: The Last Witch is available on Crunchyroll.

  1. I found myself enjoying this episode a lot more than the first – though the pseudo-historical setting still rubs me up the wrong way. I’m convinced that the Princess will turn out to be the White Witch – wouldn’t that be a surprise.

    The chase sequence was especially strong and exciting besides. I’m actually looking forward to the next episode (and you’re review, of course).

  2. The chase was just wonderful, and Fine’s plan with the anti-tank rifle had me cheering. That said, I felt like the flashback dump was a little tedious. Still eager to see more of this, though.

    1. Yeah, I kind of felt most of the information from the flashbacks could have come across better. Still, it’s made a pretty good start compared to some of the shows this season.

  3. This will probably be the next Anime series I am going to watch. It looks very interesting indeed. Currently watching another “witch series” Brynhildr in the Darkness, also pretty cool so far.

    1. Brynhildr didn’t do much for me (the ending just didn’t appeal). Izetta’s got a much more hopeful tone even while it is set in that whole grim background of the war.

I'd love to know what you think.
