What time is it? TIME FOR SOME C3!
Oh, look. Another catching up post. Have I mentioned how much I hate these things? Anyways, I have another minor paper this week, a final the week after that, AND THEN I’M DONE THE SEMESTER!!!!! Which means no more of these stupid joint posts!!!
Continuing from Sovereignty stabbing Kirika and then running off, Shiraho talks about how there was supposed to be a way for slowing down the Killing Organ inside Sovereignty. By feeding Sovereignty the love of others, it confuses Soverignty’s ability to measure love and know when to kill its owner. However, Shiraho says that neither of them want to remove the curse since it’s proof of their love and Haruaki is bro about this since love is illogical.
Fear comes up with a plan, but doesn’t tell Haruaki or Shiraho about it. So the group waits outside. Shiraho doesn’t think that Sovereignty will come, but Konoha turns into sword form and Fear explains that she told Sovereignty that she would kill Shiraho if he/she didn’t show up. However, Sovereignty does show up and he/she/it(…?) looks more than a little insane and desperate. Fear switches to yandere mode and says that the whole thing is a pain, so she’s going to destroy Sovereignty. After battling, Fear starts destroying Sovereignty, causing Shiraho to start crying and saying that she loves him/her. This, in turn, makes all of the blades come out of Sovereignty. By then, Haruaki has figured things out, so he uses Konoha’s ability to destroy all of the blades inside Sovereignty.
Afterwards, they’re called to the superintendent’s office, where they see Sovereignty in a maid uniform (thanks to Zenon who loves cute things). Also, Sovereignty conveniently had an Indulgence Disk inside of it, so she/he gives it to Fear. Shiraho makes a megane friend who I swear is my anime look-alike in class and Fear talks to Sovereignty about ‘girl things;. Fear asks Sovereignty if she has enough of something (I assume its love) for Sovereignty to steal, but Sovereignty’s answer is pretty vague.
The next episode, a wild harem member has appeared! She attacks Fear with her hair and apparently, the girl (Kuroe) also lives in the house with Haruaki and Konoha. However, this is all made insignificant by the amazing new opening, which features a winter theme and Kirika. Afterwards, Kuroe apologises to Fear for attacking her and Fear learns that Kuroe is actually almost free of her curse. However, her powers still remain, so the curse lifts the way the Cursed Object wants it to. Oh and Kuroe’s hair can heal wounds.
The reason Kuroe came back is because people have been following her, and she points to some woman dressed as a nun standing in the yard. The woman introduces herself as Alice and explains that she comes from a group called the Families of Biblio that apparently just wants to hang out with Kuroe. However, when she sees Fear, Alice wants her instead. Fear refuses though, so Alice retreats, leaving everyone confused as to what that was all about.
At school, Kirika talks to a bishie teacher who turns out to be a part of her organization. He proceeds to molest her, but Kirika threatens to kill him and he backs off, saying that a relationship with the person she likes would never work out. Meanwhile, Fear and the group are handing out flyers for Kuroe’s new hair salon (yeah, apparently she’s a talented beautician). Haruaki asks for Kirika’s help and promises to help her in return. The two talk as he helps her and Kirika is cheered up by the fact that he had forgotten about the fact that she wears bondage 24/7…er, I mean wears a Cursed Object. Later, Fear and Kuroe take a bath together and Haruaki walks in on a questionable situation. …And not a second later, Konoha shows up.
Fear meets The Grudge
The next day, Kuroe opens her shop and everyone showers her with gifts. Even Sovereignty and Shiraho come (with a cute moment of Sovereignty and Kuroe recognising each other as fellow dolls). Then for some reason, Zenon has Fear and Konoha dress up in costume. … And then Alice shows up to have her hair cut (which looks no different afterwards) and then pays using a ton of money and tells them to keep the change (WHY DON’T PEOPLE LIKE THIS EXIST IN REAL LIFE?!). Before she leaves, Alice leaves the group with the cryptic message that the culprit is her (You know, I’ve been meaning to watch Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro. Maybe this is a sign…). Oh and there’s also a new ED.
In other news:
I didn’t think this was possible, but it looks like we’ve actually found someone with cooler hair than Hime’ｓ
…And Kirika is awesome.
At least covering multiple episodes actually gives me something to talk about here. As far as I’m concerned, episode 8 was a satisfying conclusion to that arc. Sure, having Konoha use her very convenient power of destroying weapons to solve things was kind of a cheap way to end things (though Fear was pretty smart for realising this), it was a happy ending. Another thing that I liked was the fact that Haruaki helped out females and the DIDN’T end up in his harem (…as far as I know). This is partially because Sovereignty and Shiraho already have each other, but I’m glad that the two get to be happy together. Plus there was the insane Sovereignty and yangire (am I using the right term this time?) Fear again.
Lololol Kitamura is playing a tsundereish character again.…As for episode 9, if I had to sum up my thoughts in a face, it would probably go something like: (´・ω・`)? There were so many random and vague plot events going on, that I really had no idea what I was supposed to be paying attention to. Kuroe seems like such a straightforward character (though I’m still mentally prepared for that image to be shattered since this show has a track record for trolling), while Alice is extremely hard to read. …Is Alice supposed to be Peavey’s replacement? Though thanks to Kuroe, we now know that Haruaki isn’t just an optimistic fool and that curse removing really DOES work. … Though we still have yet to find out why Fear needs Indulgence Disks. On a different note, I found the entire bath scene hilarious (though that’s mostly due to Konoha’s amazing timing), where in pretty much any other harem anime, I would have rolled my eyes and questioned why I was watching this. I don’t even know why I like this harem as opposed to other harems. I just do.
Second season where? I like the fact that they changed the OP and ED despite the fact that it’s pretty pointless since this ends in 3 or so episodes. This also clears up the confusion I had about reading that Kitamura Eri performed one of the openings. But yeah, the previous OP was pretty to look at, but this one was amazing (I simply love those snowflakes~). One another note, did C3 always have so many SHAFTish animation scenes to it? Not so much episode 9, but the ending to episode 8 was extremely SHAFT-like, which is weird because as far as I can find, none of the art directors have really worked with SHAFT all that much (though one of them helped with one episode of Madoka).
Preview: The next episode is titled “The Sadistic Person is Nowhere to be Seen”…. Noooooo! Sadistic people make this show better!!! …But honestly, I have no idea what this means.
