Don’t read if you haven’t watched the episode. Not even trying to avoid stating the ending this time given it has become inevitable.
No surprise, D Agency outwitted the opponent before the episode even started – again. Joker Game has proven in 8 separate stories now that it is really a one trick show. Any chance for development in plot or characters has been utterly wasted by a rigorous adherent to formulaic story telling and in a show about spies and espionage that is kind of a death sentence. Let’s be honest, if we always know how it is going to end and we don’t know the characters and they aren’t going to develop then what is left to look forward to in the episode? I still don’t dislike this anime but I’m a little bored with it at this point. Any single episode in the series is perfectly watchable but as a whole it just doesn’t do enough.
And I know I didn’t really tell you what happened this episode but that’s because, nothing new happened.
Joker Game is available on Crunchyroll.
