Zettai Bouei Leviathan – 07


Some more tasty camping snacks with Bahamut!

spring13-highwThe table tennis squooshed an episode of Zettai Bouei Leviathan as well as Nyarlko, but we still have a new episode to talk about! As Levi-tan, Mu-chan, Syrorin, and Jormungand (who still doesn’t have a nickname) were headed into the desert to find Leviathan’s spear, will they find more than they expect?

 Follow your dreams


Before and After

So again we’ve had Leviathan getting hints about where to go from her dream. First was the ocean, and now she sees the ruins that her spear is in in another dream. What she doesn’t see in her dream is that the ruins are a former spring that has been dried up, a place that all three of them visited when they were younger. And each recounts a meeting with a mysterious boy that played with them at the spring (who just happens to look like the kid we’ve seen at the beach). But when they find the ruins, they realize it’s the same place, and wonder what’s happened to it. It’s unclear whether this is something that the Toripu and Lucasites have caused, or whether their appearance is a reaction to other changes that wrought such havoc on places like this spring. The mysterious voiceovers at the beginning of the show aren’t really helping at this point, since they are just not quite connected to each other. I’m hoping that at some point they’ll all snap into place and give us a complete view of what’s going on.

Jorm can't pull it out

Actually finding the spear in the place from her dreams, we get a bit of a “Sword in the Stone” schtick, with Jorm and Bahamut unable to pull the spear out, but Leviathan finding no resistance. But she also finds a bad monster to fight in the next episode!

Mixing in the jokes


Oh, a snake.

This episode once again did a good job mixing in the chuckles, mostly at Bahamut’s expense. The timing of the jokes just works well, like when she drops on the ground, vowing to not move anymore… until Jorm points out a snake right next to her. Or once again, the other three are going to head off into a cave, but Bahamut doesn’t want to go into a scary place… until she realizes she’s again alone and it’s cool in the cave. Or when Jorm tries to pull out the spear, fails, and then says it’s Bahamut’s turn… as if Bahamut is going to be able to pull something out that Jorm couldn’t. But it’s not just Bahamut at the butt end of the jokes, as she gets a dig in on Leviathan about not being able to do anythign without her spear… or with it. It’s these little things that I find really make the show amusing to watch.

Sure looks like a neko to me.

She sure looks like a neko.


The adventure’s definitely continuing, but we’re not really much closer to finding out the big secret of the Toripu, nor to actually fighting them. But really, that’s not too concerning at this point, with 5 episodes left and just past halfway. I’m hoping we’ll get more connections with the exposition voiceovers and the plot of the show, and that it will all tie together eventually, because it’ll be pretty disappointing if it doesn’t. But until then, I’m still enjoying the repartee of the characters.


Looks like some action next week!

    The plot thickens. No way the three girls meeting that boy in a secluded area is a coincidence. I wonder what he’s hoping to gain with them. Leviathan’s dreams are starting to be seen as a form clairvoyance. It’s just that goes into one and cuts off afterwards. If she can master it, it will prove to be very useful.

      I am starting to wonder if Leviathan actually has ever had a real big brother, or if the person she knew as her big brother is really that kid who is some spirit or other sort of entity.

      I was actually kind of glad to see that Jorm and Bahamut had also seen the same kid on their trips to the spring. I know the series is “Zettai Bouei Leviathan“, but it helped keep the two of them from being relegated even farther back from Leviathan.
