Taito and Himea take refuged in the school from the blood rain, and go to find Gekkou who conveniently is on his way to find them…before walking into some random wormhole. All I can say is, good choice. So, yeah, Taito can’t get a hold of him. Bigger problems start arriving for them though, as a squelchy, sticky…rapey sound starts closing in on them.
Himea gets all strung up in
delicious tentacles. They manage to turn her yandere and she starts killing Taito with the tentacles that are now on her side. Ba’alskra seems to be the “other” (more male-sounding) Himea, and he/she/it is bitter about Himea leaving her for Taito. They have a bit of a cat and mouse fight before Taito launches himself out a window.
at least it didn’t turn out like Tower of Etruria
Haruka tries calling Taito, feeling neglected, and he smartly answers. It’s not like he’s being hunted or there are more important things going on…And surprise, surprise the tentacles find him! Oh, and Haruka’s eyes change colour. Ba’alskra keeps killing Taito but he remains steadfast in trying to pull Himea back into the drivers seat of her own body.
It starts working, and Himea’s image appears multiple times on the glass windows. Taito makes a frantic dash at Ba’alskra, but is skewed by a tentacle, using up his last life. Himea comes to her senses, destroying Ba’alskra.
Or so we thought, when Himea comes to herself she asks Taito to make love to her and just has that look in her eye of something not being right with her. The ED has never been so appropriate, with all the versions of Himea clawing at the original.
It’s true, being exposed to tentacles turns you into a horny slut
This is me paying for that Aki fanservice in Kamisama Dolls last week, isn’t it?
Sigh~ Oh well, boys…enjoy -_-
I have mixed feelings about Ba’alskra. Himea’s yandere form was pretty entertaining, and her crazy bloodshot eyes were a neat design element. It seems such a waste, then, to have him killed off so soon. Though the reveal of Himea’s ensuing wonkiness at the episode’s end is encouraging. With Hinata warning Gekkou about her, and her inability to be “tamed”, I’ve been waiting for a more caniving, salacious personality to come out in her. I wasn’t buying the whole moe attitude, so if she’s finally discarded it for the fowl temptress gig I’ll be cheering. We’ve already got a moe girl anyway; Haruka is still causing wide spread diabetes with her cwute little face.
Btw, Haruka’s also got a split personality. She’s a spy. I can’t help but feel she got the better trade up, somehow.
The reveal was slipshod, but I can see it going in an interesting direction. Multiple personalities seem to be the theme of Kuro Usagi, my guess is the makers have watched Sybil one too many times. My main complaint this episode was it felt very simillar to the others. Same formula, and dialogue. Taito loves Himea, Taito will do anything to protect Himea, yadda yadda. This episode only stood out for it’s tame yet practical use of tentacles.
Gekkou and Mirai’s random dissappearance into the tunnel of death seemed badly placed. I mean, why introduce it if you’re not going to do anything with it this episode. All the crazy shit with Ba’alskra was going on I’m sitting there thinking “What happened to Gekkou?”. It was unessissarily distracting, and didn’t need to be introduced this episode. I think I’ve made that point about Kuro Usagi before, I don’t like the way things are revealed. The story doesn’t flow well at all.
