Strike the Blood – 08-09

StriketheBlood800001

Another day, another 10th of the city destroyed.

I’m finally free from schoolwork~ …Er, until finals, but I’m not worried about those. It’s the essay writing that reduces my will to do anything. So in other words, sorry for the delay of all of my posts this week. As for Strike the Blood, I think I’ve figured out why they have no security. Their budget must all go to city repairs.

Episode 8:

StriketheBlood800010

Well, it happened. Are you surprised? No? Thought so. Kojou now has control over 2/12 of his familiars now, which is good news, and he’s now added Sayaka to the list of girls who want him. …I guess whether that last one is good news or not depends on your preferences. It doesn’t look like Sayaka and Yukina are going to be in a cat fight anytime soon over this since Yukina managed to take the news maturely, but Sayaka sure fell for Kojou quickly. She was afraid of men, but seems to be okay with Kojou. I’d roll my eyes, but that would be too much effort. Sayaka knows exactly what she’s doing though, and knows that Yukina seems to have a thing for Kojou, so maybe she won’t be as forward as Asagi is about Yukina being a rival. Maybe this might even add some interesting character dynamics (…or it could degrade to an awkward friendship-rival relationship between the two girls, but let’s hope not).

The action in Strike the Blood is kind of hard to talk about. I wouldn’t call it good or bad, but it just kind of happens. There’s nothing really special to it either, despite the characters doing amazing things like destroying several layers of concrete with a single punch, or cutting off people’s hands. The things the characters are capable of are obviously supposed to be amazing, but I can’t really say that I actually feel amazed by any of it. Though this might be the anime’s fault. It’s so much easier to make things sound badass with the right description as opposed to shown through an anime on a budget.

StriketheBlood800008StriketheBlood800015

…Some things about this are are pretty amazing though (for the wrong reasons). All of this happens, and Asagi is STILL completely oblivious to the main plot of this anime. I guess it was conveniently set up so she could think that this last arc mostly involved her, but it’s rather sad that she’s pretty much the only one in the cast who has no clue about Kojou. Does she seriously believe the story that Kojou ran after her and fell into the ocean? Though given how he acts sometimes, maybe she really could believe it. At least she got a kiss in, which is more than Yukina’s gotten this entire arc. Aside from the pitiful ending for Asagi this arc (I mean the fact that she has next to no idea what’s going on, not the fact that she made a move on Kojou), you have to admit that she did well with stopping the Nalakuvara. Maybe she didn’t completely take control, but writing an entirely new command for an ancient (and otherwise unstoppable) war machine is pretty cool too. …If only the Black Death Emperor Faction had thought of supervising her or taking away her phone (you know, pretty much the two basic rules to kidnapping people) and they could have probably avoided this outcome. Hindsight is 20/20, I guess.

As for the other characters, I guess Yaze has some kind of restrictions as to what he can and cannot interfere in (…but who does he work for?). Meanwhile, the Lion King Organization just seems to interact with everyone, regardless to if they almost caused a huge war for fun or not. Though the fact that they seem to be absolutely everywhere makes their excellent information gathering skills make more sense. Since Paper Noise appears to be at Kojou’s middle school, those pictures of him from the beginning of episode 2 probably weren’t that hard to take. …Or maybe that girl with the braids was some form of possession or something (and Paper Noise was sitting wherever the Lion King Organization’s base is the whole time), but I guess specifics don’t matter. She was there. She could have easily taken stalker pictures.

Episode 9:

The next arc definitely started with some action, and with the introduction of (maybe) a new species. If vampires exist, it’s probably not that far of a stretch for angels to exist too. Now we just have to wait and see who these people work for and what their motives are.

StriketheBlood800018StriketheBlood800020

Could it be?! Is Asagi actually going to learn that Kojou is a vampire this arc?! …Though not yet, since the meeting that the characters are supposed to be having isn’t quite happening yet. There still seems like there will be a chance that Asagi will finally find out though, and I guess she has noticed that things are being hidden from her. Kojou just… really needs to let her know, and then maybe the relationships between Kojou, Asagi and Yukina can finally progress from there. Asagi is really bold and I highly doubt that she would ever reject Kojou after finding out that he’s a vampire, but Yukina and Sayaka still seem like they have more of a relationship with Kojou since they know everything.

StriketheBlood800025StriketheBlood800027

Gosh, I wonder if these two mysterious characters are related somehow.

Okay, the roof scene was actually pretty funny. It’s refreshing to see character interaction that wasn’t between Kojou and his harem, and it was heartwarming in a way to see that Kojou was concerned about his sister hanging out with some unknown guy. the whole point of that scenario though seems to have been for the introduction of Kanon. …And if you couldn’t tell that she was going to be important due to her uniform being unique, you obviously have not watched enough anime. Her character design looks nice, but her personality seems pretty typical. Obviously there’s a lot more to her character to be revealed though, so she might become more interesting. …Or at least, more interesting than she already is, considering that she may or may not be stealing people’s internal organs chakra cores.

Most of the character seem to have decided to overlook Vatler almost starting a war out of boredom, and I guess he’s going to be a regular edition to the main cast. Natsuki still doesn’t seem too fond of him, but she probably has to tolerate his presence due to his influence and whatnot. Whoever the antagonist of this arc is seems pretty strong, since Vatler is worried about Kojou being involved. I mean, we saw the guy recover from getting his head cut off, and everyone keeps making a huge deal over how he’s the strongest vampire (or one of the four strongest or whatever). BB was definitely a vampire if those red eyes were any indication, and if Vatler’s concern means anything, she must either be another Progenitor or someone even closer to a Progenitor than Vatler is to the first. …Unless he was referring to Kanon, in which case I assume it’s because she’s an angel or whatever. As always, it’s difficult for me to tell who belongs to what faction and what faction wants what until about the time that Kojou figures out which one he needs to punch.

On an unrelated not, it was also nice to see that the characters do indeed have more than one set of clothing (other than Kojou, who apparently owns an infinite amount of the exact same hoodie). Natsuki’s new outfit looks good.

StriketheBlood800028

Yay for goth lolis in white.


The ending to the Nalakuvara arc (or whatever the official name for it is) fell flat with me. Maybe because the action was nothing amazing and maybe because it had almost every cliche about tsundere characters in the book (minus the twintails thing). …I want to like Sayaka and Kojou’s relationship, I really do. The tsundere is one of my favourite character archetypes, but you can only shove so much of the stereotype in there before it becomes silly. She didn’t improve much in episode 9 either (though Kojou’s line this episode of “I don’t understand women” was funny in a sad way). However, I definitely enjoyed episode 9 more than episode 8 as a whole due to the rest of the character interaction. Aside from what I mentioned about Nagisa and Kojou, Yukina was rather open minded about Kojou telling Asagi about his condition. …Though really, I guess it’s Kojou’s call in the first place. It looks like this arc will be more interesting than the last one, so let see where this goes (…I have a feeling that I said this at the start of the last arc too, so let’s hope it actually is more interesting this time).

The next episode apparently gives insight to Emiya Kiritsugu’s short-lived career as a pilot.

    other than Kojou, who apparently owns an infinite amount of the exact same hoodie

    How do you know that it’s not the same hoodie and he just washes it every night?

    And it goes without saying, Sayaka did get the F. I’m gonna be developing a neck fetish sooner or later(yes I didn’t have one before). And apparently she wants more with how she keeps calling him. This is probably the fastest development of all as I think the whole arc happened in just 2 days, with 3 episodes covering the 2nd day. Chalk it up to the vampire charms I guess. Dem Sayakas are definitely big.

    Asagi is certainly getting aggressive. First that kiss and then stripping. She wants the 4th letter of the alphabet, not the 6th ;)
    But she’s probably not gonna get the F as the new character is definitely the next in line to get it. At this point we don’t need to call it out as it’s sure to happen anyways.

    Not that interested yet in the plot of the arc as we know so little. And we’re given more concepts like angels, holy swords, internal organsspiritual centers and something like Aldegyr. The world setting is pretty vast but there’s not much exposition regarding these. We’re just given these terms and that’s it. The bane of LN adaptations I guess. Really want to read the LN but there’s no English translations and I can’t into moonrunes. Oh well. The anime is still interesting to watch. And the girls are all top class. So yeah.

    • belatkuro says:

      Gah, I forgot to close the tags.

      • Kyokai says:

        Fixed.

      • zztop says:

        True, the budget is rather cheap and the show looks very generic, but there’s also a lot of appealing worldbuilding elements introduced per arc/ep, and then there’s that looming 4th Progenitor backstory that nearly everyone seems to be connected to.

        If you want to find out spoilers, try look at Animesuki’s discussions of the Strike the Blood LN. Theres some explanations/spoilers on there.
        You could also look at Randomc’s coverage of Strike and its comments. One of its commenters has read the 1st 8 LNs and will explain any details uncovered in the anime.

    • Highway says:

      Or based on what Asagi said, he *doesn’t* wash it, and it’s grubby and old.

    • skylion says:

      She’s aggressive because she knows she has competition. I wonder if she will keep to that when the truth of his vampiric nature comes out?

    • d-LaN says:

      I can’t into moonrunes

      Weord, I always have the impression tht you read LN in japanese. What language LN do you go after again?

    • BlackBriar says:

      And it goes without saying, Sayaka did get the F. I’m gonna be developing a neck fetish sooner or later.

      Nibbling on the necks of two beautiful girls who gave their consent and sucking their blood. Kojou is one lucky vampire. Not that you’d could call it luck since it’s in their nature as a species to enchant humans and getting them to do what they want. It’s much easier for a vampire to get a lover and/or servant than it is for a human.

      As for who he sinks his fangs into next, it might be Asagi or maybe Natsuki. Yes, the teacher should be an option. It’s only fair.

      • skylion says:

        Yes…the teacher

      • Karakuri says:

        …I’d actually love to see Natsuki join the harem. She and Kojou have an already existing relationship too, which would make things interesting. …I wish they would get on with explaining Asagi’s past already, unless that flashback was supposed to be it. (…If that even was Asagi).

    • Karakuri says:

      Well the hoodie keeps getting torn since Kojou gets stabbed or something every other episode. I can’t remember if he was wearing it or not when Sayaka attacked him, but it definitely was damaged in the first arc when the axe to the back somehow decapitated him. xD

      You called it. …I didn’t even realize that it had been such a short time frame. Sayaka sure got over her manphobia fast (or at least with Kojou). …I wonder what she thinks of Asagi, since we all know that she’s okay with Yukina. Or maybe any progress with Asagi is automatically blamed to Kojou.

      Yeah, you really have to wonder what kind of information that they’ve left out. The fact that they’ve left it out in the first place means that it’s (probably) not important, but they’ve cut a lot of world building in the process. …And unfortunately for me, that’s usually one of my favourite parts of an anime (depending on genre).

  2. Highway says:

    I thought it would be tough for a harem lead to rival Ichika Orimura for sheer denseness, but I’ll be damned if Kojou doesn’t rise to the challenge. Sheesh, what a maroon. “I dunno why Sayaka keeps calling me.” “Oh, you’re going to change too?” I’m just waiting for Yukina to beat him severely with her spear to knock some sense into him.

    • zztop says:

      I dont mind the romcom harem antics here, and this comes from a person who dislikes most romcom harems. Especially Infinite Stratos.

      • Highway says:

        I don’t mind them, I like harems, a lot more than vampires (really, whether someone gets bitten by someone else I don’t care at all about). But Kojou’s really a dim bulb. :)

    • BlackBriar says:

      Oh, I disagree with that one immensely. No matter what kind of lead shows up in an anime, they can’t beat Ichika in the dense department.

      • skylion says:

        Ichika takes male harem lead to the command of resources that Gilded Age robber barons of old enjoyed.

        Koujo is but a simple Mom and Pop shingle selling hot potatoes.

        • Highway says:

          I dunno, as far as I recall, Ichika’s NEVER had a girl kiss him and then he wonders what it was about. Nor has he had a girl take off her clothes that obviously. Usually, Ichika just misses normal clues about who likes him. Plus, Ichika’s harem is full of a bunch more tsundere girls who never come right out and say they like him.

          Ichika’s still in the lead… by a little. But Kojou is really coming up fast.

          • skylion says:

            Once upon a time Magic the Gathering was a “cottage industry”.

          • Karakuri says:

            Oh, that’s a good point. Yeah, I guess Ichika’s harem is pretty tsundere. I guess it’s the tsundere level that makes the difference. Maybe Kojou wouldn’t get Sayaka, but the fact that he missed Asagi’s signs is a little sad.

            • Akuma Hano says:

              I think it’s more like he’s inexperienced with love. If someone kissed me like that, and I didn’t like them, I would be angry with them, but Koujo’s a cool, kind guy. Koujo is’t really dense in my opinion, he did do a bit of mystery solving in the first arc with guess where the Combat Deacon and Astrate were first hiding.

    • Karakuri says:

      It’s a disease, I swear. And they never seem to get any less dense.

      • BlackBriar says:

        *sigh* What can we say? It mostly comes with the territory being a lead male character.

  3. zztop says:

    And now Kojou must sleep with one eye open, lest Vatler extends him a surprise diplomatic visit in the dead of night…(O_O;)

    • BlackBriar says:

      Is Itogami Island so invested in paying mind to the damages they can’t have a budget to make a proper security system for those kinds of situations? :D Yeah, the damage this time around was bad but it doesn’t compare to the kind from Man of Steel, especially with that last fight scene.

    • Karakuri says:

      …At least Kojou seems to know what Vatler thinks of him, unlike the rest of his harem. Maybe it was meant to be.

  4. zztop says:

    @karakuri:
    Elaborations from the LN:
    1)Sayaka’s man-hating originates from being abused by her father, who feared her spiritual powers(no doubt the same powers enabling her War Dancer abilities)

    2)Sayaka isn’t lesbian, just super-protective and attached to Yukina. (・‿・)

    3)Yaze’s father is very rich and very influential on Itogami Island. And when wealth and politics meet, weird things happen(in this universe).

    I obtained this info from a commenter on another blog who has read LN vol 1-8, and apologise on only having 2ndhand info to share. m(_ _)m

    • d-LaN says:

      To compliment zztop comment:

      -The reason why Nagisa is in Itogami is for the medical treatment. Kujou parents are divorced likely due to the incident.

      -To sum it up, Yaze ability is manipulation of soundwaves and those drugs are basically Body Clear.

      -The acupuncture Sayaka did is to make Astarte body go into hibernation to prevent extra damage.

      -I forgot if the anime mention it, but the AI with Asagi is also responsible for maintaining Itogami.

      -Sayaka can use those magic arrow to perform spells complicated spells like the one she cast in EP8. The spell can cause fatal damage to humans but thk Himeragi spear tht can negate the effect of the spell they are alive.

      -Gardos is “disguised” as Vatler butler in the LN. Immortal vampire sure is fearless.

      -Vatler is interested in trying out Manga Cafe and Family Restaurant lolololololol

      -Some portion of the LN3 prologue is removed but it seems like next week episode will cover it.

      Other than some small detail here and there, the anime is doing an OK job at adapting the LN. (I only read the 2nd one in depth though)

      • Karakuri says:

        YES. THANK YOU FOR THE EXPLANATION ABOUT NAGISA. …I had no idea that Kojou’s parents were divorced, but that might explain why they’re never mentioned.

        …The explanation about the acupuncture is helpful too. I just figured that it was the show using medical techniques just because it could.

    • Karakuri says:

      1) Ah, yes. The abusive father. Classic.

      2) Ahaha I think I almost would have preferred her to have a thing for Yukina. OTL

      3) Aaaaaaand the mystery deepens. Tokyo Ravens had Touji. Strike the Blood hsa this guy.

      Thanks again for the info~

  5. HannoX says:

    Doesn’t anybody in their world notice that Kanon doesn’t have any pupils? Don’t you think they’d find that kind of odd? Nope, nobody says anything about it and don’t find it amazing that she can see. Sure, it’s supposed to be a clue to the viewers that she isn’t human, but wouldn’t the other characters see that?

    • d-LaN says:

      Same logic as to why no one point out the Sisters pupil are different frm Misaka one, I guess. (Though Railgun S fixed that)

      That and the drugged eye of UtaPri MC.

    • Karakuri says:

      Maybe they’re just used to seeing so many weird looking people on the island since it’s covered in demons and all?

  6. BlackBriar says:

    Episode 08: Another end to an arc that finishes on a high note (in my opinion) though this was a bit better. The show deserves credit for its finales. The official name for the arc is “From The Warlord’s Empire”.

    As I thought, Sayaka gets her first bite and it was consensual, she even used the same question “Am I not good enough?” Yukina did on Kojou to seal the deal. Diabolik Lovers should be taking a lot of notes. The look on her face after the sound of his fangs sinking in is basically telling you the feeling is euphoric. She must have some rather tough skin because the bite sounded loud whereas Yukina’s first sounded much softer. And I wonder how Sayaka’s first time went in the manga since there’s surely a difference with the anime. During Yukina’s first time, she opened up her shirt, showing more of her bra than Sayaka.

    It seems the big number of people disliking Sayaka took a huge nose dive and it should be that way since, after all, not much was known about her. Her being androphobic makes her previous behavior easier to overlook. Her change with Kojou was sudden but I was alright with it because it felt natural, there was no feeling of her attitude being forced.

    So Vatler has permission from the Lion King Organization to stick around as “Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary”. Everyone had better hope he finds a hobby to stave his boredom or all hell is going to break loose on Itogami Island on a regular basis.

    I’ll give Asagi points for persistence and aggression. That kiss was the boldest move I’ve seen a female character make to get the guy she wants when there are other girls around.

    Whoever Yaze is working for, it’s a safe bet he’s assigned as Asagi’s observer and maybe has to put her as Kojou’s mate in Yukina’s place. So far, that’s the best theory I have for him always attempting to pair them up.

    • BlackBriar says:

      The look on her face after the sound of his fangs sinking in is basically telling you the feeling is euphoric. She must have some rather tough skin because the bite sounded loud whereas Yukina’s first sounded much softer.

      You be the judge based on what I said of the two scenes:
      Yukina
      Sayaka

    • Karakuri says:

      Eh, I wasn’t that taken with this arc’s ending. I liked the Right Arm of The Saint ending better. Though that’s probably because there was more behind Astarte and Rudolf’s characters.

      I’m wondering at this point if there’s ever going to be a “second time” at the rate Kojou is going. I mean, Yukina offered in this arc and he turned her down.

      Ahahaha Vatler definitely needs a hobby.

  7. BlackBriar says:

    Episode 09: “The Amphisbaena” arc may prove to be more interesting than the previous two. For BB, who is most likely a vampire, to have the power of an angel working for her? I bet there’s a fallen angel involved as well.

    Sayaka is taking serious liking to Kojou. It’s rare to like all the girls who are present trying to win the lead male’s favor.

    If vampires exist, it’s probably not that far of a stretch for angels to exist too. Now we just have to wait and see who these people work for and what their motives are.

    Itogami Island as a whole is a safe haven for demons of all kinds so there shouldn’t a surprise if angels turn up. Maybe there will be a possibility of a vampire and angel pairing up. It’s a 90% bet the angel causing a ruckus is Kanon. That and I don’t believe she was for the previous school year. I’m sure some memory manipulating magic is being used.

    BB was definitely a vampire if those red eyes were any indication

    It’s going to be weird for me having people calling her that in the future. Especially when I’m mentioning her in anything.

    Natsuki’s new outfit looks good.

    Actually, that’s the second time she’s worn that dress. The first time was in episode 3 before Kojou and Yukina confronted Rudolf in the lab where Astarte was recovering.

    Side note: Now that I think about it, Since Strike the Blood is being animated, there no longer should be an excuse for Bloody Cross not getting the same treatment. The manga for Cross was released in 2009 and StB two years later in 2011.

    If Bloody Cross does get an anime, I can imagine Haruka Tomatsu playing Tsukimiya, Ryota Ohsaka as Hinata, Eri Kitamura as Kanade and Takahiro Sakurai as Izumi, the head of Arcana.

    • skylion says:

      Bloody Cross looks interesting. Thanks for the link. I’ll give you Tsugumomo, if you haven’t already found it.

    • d-LaN says:

      So the Amphisbaena is an actual thing. But its written as “Angel Flame” here so I have no idea what it means in StB context.

      …….I’ve been defaulting BB as Big Boobs since Fate/Extra CCC XD Or do you prefer BeBeh? :P

      • BlackBriar says:

        That’s what I don’t understand. The previews are misleading. After “The Right Arm Of The Saint”, the second arc was supposed to be named “Messenger Of The War King” but became “From The Warlord’s Empire” and the third as “Angel in Flames” but was renamed as “The Amphisbaena”.

        It turns out that “BB” are the initials for her name. And apparently, her name is Beatrice Bussler.

        • d-LaN says:

          Those are the translation/romanization used in the LN so don’t ask me lol. The subbers probably directly translated the titles in the preview be4 correcting them after the official title is out.

          • BlackBriar says:

            No wonder it felt forced when seeing the real titles of the arcs.

      • Karakuri says:

        I’ve been defaulting BB as Big Boobs since Fate/Extra CCC

        …How about “big bitch” since Melty killed my bro Shinji.

        • d-LaN says:

          I would gladly maim F/SN Shinji but F/E Shinji being you-know-what complicates thing.

          Lol. At least Melty still have “sex voice” as a +1.

          • Karakuri says:

            Yeah… I feel the same way. Though I’m still vexed at BB, Show ▼

    • Karakuri says:

      Ahaha yep. BB. It was meant to be.

      …Really? She’s worn that before? I can’t believe that I didn’t notice. I’m quite fond of her current outfit.

      If Bloody Cross does get an anime, I can imagine Haruka Tomatsu playing Tsukimiya, Ryota Ohsaka as Hinata, Eri Kitamura as Kanade and Takahiro Sakurai as Izumi, the head of Arcana.

      I can actually see all of those castings working out rather nicely~ Though I think Kitamura would make a nice Momose. Or maybe HanaKana can play Momose. Sakurai would also be excellent as Satsuki~. …Also, Ono D would be awesome for Hanamura. Maybe FukuJun for Tsuduki. He’s been really good at those flamboyant roles recently.

      ….I really want this anime now.

    More Index/Railgun seiyuus keep coming in for this show. So far, we have:

    Yuka Iguchi (Astarte) as Index
    Risa Taneda (Yukina) as Jane Elves
    Asami Seto (Asagi) as Marie Spearhead.
    Rina Hidaka (Nagisa) as Last Order.
    Kana Ueda (Paper Noise) as Mii Konori.
    Kanae Itou (Kanon) as Ruiko Saten.
    Ikumi Hayama (Sayaka) as Shinobu Nunotaba.

    I wonder who else is going to show up.

    • BlackBriar says:

      Heads up!!! Thanks to ANN, I found out BB is voiced by Arai Satomi aka Index/Railgun’s Kuroko!!!

      • skylion says:

        I must not be pay in attention….who now?

        • BlackBriar says:

          That crazy foul mouthed blonde at the start of episode 9 is being voiced by Arai Satomi.

          • skylion says:

            Ah, thanks. I had to watch that again. Yep, it has her distinct intonation, without any of the Kuroko voice. Guess BB doesn’t have an onee-sama.

    OK back on topic.

    The anime sure tone down the ugliness of the angel figure. The text mentioned tht her mask is covered with many eyes and her wings are "ugly to the point of nausea". But the holiness part holds.

    Kanon is giving off a Meigo Arisa vibes there…. Won't be surprised tht she is off somewht similar nature not to mention the description of the color illustration spoils some details abt her. There just something abt her style of outfit/pupil design/hair color tht makes me like her.

    Welp, Sayaka went frm yuri yandere to tsundere. Saw it coming though and after Index I kinda got used to it. Not to mention her being comfortable with Kujou seems a bit fast. At least Valter is stil here to provide the gay option ^_^

    PS
    There this amusing line frm the afterwords in LN2:

    But the War Deacon (?) ossan did not appear, so if there any fans of the ossan I’m sorry, but I don’t think there one though

    I think the author is onto m- I mean something. What I like the designs of the ossans don’t look at me like that.

    • BlackBriar says:

      Welp, Sayaka went from yuri yandere to tsundere. Saw it coming though and after Index I kinda got used to it. Not to mention her being comfortable with Kujou seems a bit fast.

      I first thought it was yuri the way she was acting toward Kojou after getting a certain amount of screen time. But after a while, Sayaka, to me, acted more like an overprotective older sister thinking Yukina was unable to do things for herself. Before being bitten, she even told Kojou because of her height, she was always the one who had to carry the other girls and she was happy when Kojou carried her.

      Perhaps one day in the distant future, slapping people through the net will be possible. One can dream.

      …Yeah, I didn’t get any kind of ugliness from the angel. It’s not exactly a flattering mask, but it’s not hideous either.

      Ahaha maybe they’ll show the ossan before the series ends. I want to see what he looks like at least.

        That’s nothing but a double edged sword waiting to happen.
