Drama of the dead!
Last week we had some laughs and a few cute moments between Yuki and Aikawa! After the ending of episode eight, let’s find out what happens next to Yuu! And see if the main villain is anything special compared to someone like Kyoko; sure wish she would return. Oh yeah almost forgot, here is some fan art of Yuu! Hope you enjoy it, now onto the review.
Plot picks right up with Yuu going missing and the others running off to search for her, after a bit of arguing about certain characters missions. The King of Night chats with Yuu about her powers causing people problems and a lot of unprecedented appearances of Megalo; Dai sensei shows up and “helps” the others with Yuki as she goes crazy with a summoning spell.
Yuu says hello to an old friend, by stabbing him in the chest!
Before the search for Yuu begins, Aikawa learns Sera had orders to kill Yuu if her powers began to get out of control, which causes Aikawa to question her mission over her friendship. Sera decides to drop the orders and they start their search for Yuu. Who would be able to kill her? She’s SO cute!
Aikawa- “You can’t kill Moe!” Sera- “I KNOW! IT’S TOO CUTE!”
Haruna hates being touched by giant monster penguin!
Looks like a darker version of Aikawa…
Dai sensei arrives after Haruna gets crushed by the large kappa doll, knocking it off her but it lands on Yuki instead. This is where things get really random for me, with Yuki summoning her Mysticore, which goes crazy shooting fire everywhere, eventually ending up with a countdown to explode. Aikawa transforms and runs to Yuki giving her a hug that stops the countdown. Yes, because hugs save the day always! Dai sensei then leaves after the King of night escapes.
Boom! Take that you overgrown monster thingy!
Love this character, still reminds me of the Vocaloid Miku with grey hair.
Battle time! Go magical Aikawa!
Yuki- “It’s getting hot in hereee! Let’s take off all our clothes!”
Yuki’s tears aren’t strong enough to put out the fire…
The hug that saved the day! Still strange with his magical girl costume on.
Haruna- “I THINK WE KILLED IT…” Sera-“I wish….”
With Yuki back to normal and Yuu with the others, they all return home, except for Yuu who wanted to get something from the local store. Aikawa returns home and finds a note left by Yuu in his pocket; the note says goodbye and explains how Yuu thought she only brings everyone pain and leaving to avoid that. Aikawa is taken over my emotions but Sera and Haruna buck him up and they decided to not give up, until they find her.
Bye for now Yuu! You will return soon!
Poor Aikawa! This was a sad scene; thankfully Haruna was there to kick him back to himself.
Haruna- “This face takes years of practice!”
Yuki- “Wake me up when this arc ends…”
Aikawa- “I will cut the fire with this chainsaw!”
This was a very drama filled episode about Sera’s mission over her true feelings about Yuu, which felt kind of forced to me but I suppose it works. After all she did say her mission as a vampire ninja is taken very seriously. But we all know Aikawa is there to remind everyone about the special friendship they have, thanks to Yuu being around.
Finally the King of Night shows his face a bit more! I still don’t know what he really is; definitely a zombie with those eyes of his but he does use magic during the episode, so I guess he might be a cross between a magician and zombie. He did have control over Kyoko during her attacks on Aikawa and the other characters; still can’t wait to see Yuu fight. Though, after seeing her in this episode I don’t think she will be a great fighter.
The ending kind of didn’t work for me either, but I suppose Yuu does feel responsible for getting her friends in danger with all the demons after her magic. The drama in this series so far works in most episodes; I just didn’t feel the drama this time around. Of course, seeing Aikawa break down near the end was sad and we do see more of the other characters go through their own emotional breakdowns. I can just hope for some much needed fun and fighting next episode.
Hard to really tell what next week will be about from the title alone but we can expect inventions? Possibly something to locate Yuu! Let’s hope for some fun stuff provided by Haruna and Yuki since they are the “inventors” of this series.
