A-1 says, add a pinch of creepy guys with creepy fetishes to a bland episode~.
~I realized the other day that I always pick things (anime, music groups, men) that people I know don’t necessarily like; Togainu no Chi is one of them. Yet, I will defend my choose and that certain thing, in this case Togainu no Chi, forever! YES, this show is extremely weird, creepy, pretty ridiculous and pretty bad at times; I’ll even admit that! But I rather enjoy it and I’ll be sticking by it through the best and worst times (as in this week’s episode), just like I do with certain other anime. In the end, ya’ll just haters! x’D (Hahaha sorry. I live two hours from Los Angeles, what can I say?)
At the beginning of this week’s episode, it’s a pretty quick change of scenes from the man with the eyepatch to Rin slashing some punks as he is trailing Shiki with the dead bodies he left from last week.
Then we are suddenly thrusted to Keisuke, who was hilariously left all alone on the hotel roof (Poor guy, seriously x’D). He has a flashback…dream to when he and Akira were younger, and how Akira even protected back then too.
Then it’s to Akira who suddenly gets into a battle with a random man. He is actually tricked after he thought he knocked out the guy, and has his hands chained together by two other guys. The man starts stabbing him in the arm with his knife when he suddenly starts convulsing and turning freakishly purple.
Akira takes the chance to punch the guy down and take the tag on his neck as he escapes.
As Akira is walking away, he ends up hearing the Executioners walk past (When don’t these guys show up? Seriously, gets some new ‘suspenseful’ stuff in there). He accidently makes a noise which makes them get closer, but luckily Motomi is randomly there himself just in time to hide him as they come around.
Back to Keisuke, he ends up meeting up with Rin, who then both see Akira and Motomi walking towards them. Keisuke of course notices Akira’s wound and rushes back to the hotel to try and buy something first-aid-y for him. Rin steps in however and buys a whole Emergency Kit (because he’s so nice like that apparently).
Keisuke starts to act like usual weakling uke self, which actually makes Akira annoyed, and start raising his voice at him, telling him he hasn’t changed and that he doesn’t understand the situation he’s in. Keisuke then, not really knowing what to do, tells him a final ‘I’m sorry’ and leaves~.
End thoughts: THANK YOU AKIRA. THANK. YOU. *CLAPS (LITERALLY)* I was going to totally bash on Keisuke for like 2 paragraphs but you gave him a good enough smack down for me (seriously, I started nodding my head along and clapping when Akira just went off on him)! Arigatou, gamsahabnida, gracias! I’m such a hater for the poor guy. I just…HATE him with such a fiery passion I physically want to punch something in the face |’D Literally. The whole time I’m watching any Togainu no Chi episode, I’m screaming horrible things at Keisuke….I’m sorry, he just annoys me sooo muccchhh, and I will probably keep ranting about him till the show ends, or he dies (PLEASE can he? I think it’ll be rather interesting).
Anyways, enough Keisuke bashing, it’s time for some episode bashing! Yes, I never thought I’d have to be so harsh to my beloved Togainu no Chi, but, I am a critic (in a way) and I must do my job! This episode was pretty choppy! I won’t lie; my summary for this episode really sucks because of that. In the beginning, it starts off with that eye-patch guy and some random guy giving him the green liquid drug, and then we have tiny clip of Rin, and some totally random battle between Akira and some licking guy! And to top it off, Akira sort of loses. I was like, “What is this?! What happened to your bad-ass aspect?!”. Are they trying to show us that he too is weak at times? I don’t know, but I was a bit annoyed.
Overall, this episode wasn’t anything special, aside from Keisuke getting yelled at by Akira, heh. No awesome battles, no awesome violence, no amazing plot developments, nothing. I’m guessing this is sort of a filler episode, maybe a bridge into next week’s episode? I really hope so. We can’t lost to the haters, Togainu no Chi! (Though I believe with Anime haters, they will hate it for life no matter what |’D)
Wait…WHAT? A GIRL? IN TOGAINU NO CHI?! WHAT IS THIS BLASPHEMY? Hahaha, don’t get too excited you…man out there; it looks like we might get a look at the eye patch guy’s younger sister who he talked about two episodes ago (Yes, I remember that), and it looks like Keisuke might actually do some killing on his own? Until next week then~.
