If this isn’t
twincest bromance I don’t know what is…
Hoshi: AM I RIGHT? I’ve suddenly started liking this RinxYukio twincest pairing, despite my love for RinxShiemi. I don’t know if it’s all the damn cute fanart I keep finding of them or what but, WHYYYY…
Hime: Imma be sneakin in yo zerochans, snatchin up your fanarts after dis. Awh yeah~
Hoshi: Mephisto keeps pressing his idea of letting Rin go and turning him into the Vatican’s weapon as a revenge-driven Amaimon makes his way to the court. Down below, not even a barrage of bullets can stop Amiamon and his large Behemoth, that is, until Shura and Angel arrive and slash the large demon. Amaimon completey loses it, breaking into the court room as a large rock being. One pound has the floor cracked, and the blue crystal that Rin is in falling to the floor, crashing into pieces.
In desperation, the Grigori finally let Mephisto do as he wished just as Bon comes by with the fixed Kurikara! After a game of toss and pass from Shima to Izumo to keep it away from Amaimon, Yukio finally grabs hold of it and rushes to hand it to his dear twin brother, but before he can reach him, a stone lands right in front, the impact sending him flying. Yet Yukio drags himself and places the Kurikara on Rin, invoking his blue flames. With that, Rin stands, the kurikara in his hand and runs up the stone covered Amaimon, stabbing him right in the chest. The blue flames consume him and Amaimon crumbles into ash in front of his brothers. After the short fight, Rin collapses, unconscious as Angel brings a blade to his neck, ready to kill him. However the Grigori decide to take Mephisto’s gamble and let him live…
There are conditions for Rin though, Mephisto explains to Yukio after the chaotic scene at the court; one being that he has to Exorcist authorization exam and that he must have someone keeping an eye on him around the clock, which Mephisto gives to Yukio and Shura. Back at the classroom, the class is cleaning up the classroom when Rin enters, acting casual. Konekomaru however decides to take out the trash, refusing Rin’s help. Izumo tells him that it’s because he scared of him for being the son of Satan, never knowing when he’ll lose his control again. Frustrated, Rin punches a wall that loosens a pipe and unleashes a large group of coal tar on top of Shiemi and Izumo. He unleashes his flames on Shiemi, who luckily doesn’t get burned, but Bon steps in anyway, making him realize his flames can kill and that he’ll kill him if he ever tries to harm his friends. Yukio then comes into the classroom, announcing Rin is going to be taking special classes from now on and drags him out.
They go into a training room with a batting cage as Yukio explains that Rin needs to train his hardest to pass. Shura enters as well, carrying a large sack. From there, she brings out a candle, telling Rin to line three up and light the ones on the sides. He tries, but lights all of them, and keeps trying, but keeps failing. Shura tells him to keep doing this three times a day for an hour until he can do it while…picking his nose. While Rin concentrates on controlling his flames, Yukio and Shura go for a little bet in the batting cages as they go on the special Infinity mode.
Rin stares at the two as they easily deflecting each ball headed their way. In frustration, he accidentally sets his flames on them, which burn off all their clothes except for their underwear. Meanwhile, Konekomaru, frustrated over not being brave enough as he sits on top of the roof, starts to hear an odd voice that starts to strike fear into him. Then he sees a pair of red eyes that get closer to him…
NO WORDS OTHER THAN ‘SUCH A FINE ASS’…
Rin keeps trying his best at lightening the candles, but still manages to torch all of them as he practices in the middle of the hallway at cram school. Izumo sees him, and as he tells her his problem, she reminds him of her familiars turning against her when her heart faltered when trying to save Paku. She suggests that maybe if he’s not afraid of his flames, they’ll obey him. When asked why she isn’t afraid of him, Izumo tells him that demon-human half-breeds aren’t all that unusual amongst exorcists. Suddenly, they sense something is with them just as a arrow of some sort tries to hit Rin. Down the hall, something black with red eyes heads towards them…~
Hoshi: Good lord, I need to stop staring at the gif of Yukio strutting with that fine ass of his. HIME WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO DO TO ME WITH YOUR SEXY GIFS? Anyways, last week I think my end thoughts mainly consisted of a rant on the original material, but this week I’m actually loving the original scenes, heh. I mean, that battle with Amaimon in the beginning was AWESOME (sadly short). BUT THEY KILLED AMAIMON, MAN! ;A; I was like, “Wait…THIS ISN’T SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN!!” I’m still in shock. What was pretty interesting though is the thought that Mephisto is actually watching his brother die in front of his eyes, really showing that Amaimon was just a pawn ready for disposal. How twisted is that? (Then again he is a demon…)
Ugh, I have to admit this was such a good episode. I MISSED THESE; these episodes that have a great mixture of action, comedy, seriousness, and suspense all in one with a good added mix of manga and original scenes that actually work out nicely for the story. I’ve always thought A-1 was decently good with that (though they do tend to fuck up every now and then as I’ve seen). Rin accidentally burning off Yukio and Shura’s clothes was PRICELESS. I’m going to be remembering that scene for the rest of this show. I also finally got to see that distrust against Rin that I was waiting for, even if it pained my fragile fangirl heart. It’s okay Rin!
As long as Shiemi still loves you! Also, did anyone else get freaked out by this new demon going around? I literally jumped at the end when it came toward the screen (Never do screencaps at night, kids) |’D Definitely wondering what’s this go to do with Konekomaru, Rin, and Bon getting majorly pissed. MORE FRIENDSHIP ANGST WHYYYY~
Hime: Pants. Frilly ones. Plain ones. All kinds of pants. The characters from Exorcist should get a job at Calvin Klein.
This was a great episode. In fact I’d go as far to say it was the best in a long time. I think things were handled much better. Though Suguro and the gangs’ revert back to not trusting Rin after only last episode rushing to get his sword fixed was very lame, but at least they sort of covered it, I guess. Out of everyone’s reaction I found Izumo’s the most surprising. She was kind of like “Pfft~ Big deal. Don’t call me “eyebrows bitch”.” It was good, made me like her just a little. The fight between Rin and Amiamon, though brief, was great and the lead up to it with the nice fluid animation on Shura and Angel, then Yukio really got my heart racing. The music almost had it bursting out of my chest! It was really exciting, tense first half.
I actually found the stuff in the batting cages a lot more interesting though. The little glimpse into Yukio’s past relationship with Shura was very cool. (He’s so cute when he’s frustrated) Usually I’m like a hissing cat when females get near characters voiced by Jun (Obsessed, yes, I know) but I think the two would make an awesome couple. They are very Rock and Revy, who I love. Too bad Yukio is in love with Rin. *is shot* Haha, ahem~ The two of them having their match against the machine was really fun, too. Such pros. Then Rin set their clothes alight! That was hilarious, and VERY welcome fan-service. I never pinned Shura as the frilly panties type, I saw her more as a lady-boxers girl. Yukio’s little black briefs were so cute <3
But, FUCK, IM WORRIED. Did you guys see that black stuff on his arms? You might have been too distracted by his FINE ASS walking away, but on fourth viewing I saw it. WHAT DOES IT MEAN!? I actually read this fanfic (I know, I know, shut up) where Shura said something similar to Yukio, then he got possessed and DIED. Fuck. See if that happens…SEE IF THAT HAPPENS. OMG. HOSHI IM SCARED. What will I do if Yukio dies? WHAT WILL I DO!? I’d honestly start wearing black and MOURN. SRSLY. Maybe it was just a burn from when Rin torched them…but it didn’t look like a burn…ohmygod this is going to drive me fucking nuts!
That seems like something that will be referenced later anyway, at the moment shit is happening to poor Konekomaru. THATS WHAT YOU GET FOR SITTING ON THE ROOF OF AN EXORCIST SCHOOL ALONE AND INJURED! Moron! (I’m only shouting cause I care) Things seem to be heating up next time, Konekomaru backstory, and Suguro being hawt~ Oh yes please, bring it on~!
Rin’s relationship with the Bon and Konekomaru may become even more strained than ever, and what’s with this mysterious bird demon? Until next week then~!!
