So, I dropped this. Really, I did. And then I was looking for a distraction to avoid doing work and thought I’d just check out one more episode and ended up watching all three of the episodes that I hadn’t seen. I don’t know if it got better or if taking a break was what I needed, or maybe it is just that this show works better in chunks than in single episodes, but I had a lot more fun with it than I remembered.
That said, there are still a lot things I don’t like about this show. So 3 episodes means 300 words, I’m sure that’s how it works.
Episode 13 finishes the fight that Benio started with that really strong guy (apparently a Basara, whatever). Rokuro and Benio combine their powers and summon a really big sword that doesn’t actually kill the thing but amuses him enough that he decided to walk away and pick up the fight once they’re stronger.
Episode 14 you could probably pass on entirely as it is a flash back filled episode with limited new content. However, given I’d taken a few weeks away from this show I actually appreciated some of the reminders here.
The episode 15 starts out fairly frivolously before deciding to remind us once again that exorcism is dangerous (oh, and that everyone in the higher chain of command is a complete and utter jerk). I did however like the break from Benio and Rokuro’s love life as we instead got to watch Ryougo maybe get a life.
The show also got a new opeing sequence and the images are definitely playing up the trauma for the characters and Benio’s companion thing is just as irritating as ever.
All things considered, not as bad as I remember it being when I decided to drop it, but still not rushing to pick this back up again. I may wait until there’s another group of episodes for me to binge watch as that definitely seems to work better for me.
