Luck & Logic – 07

luck n logic (7)

Yay everyone gets an episode! Wooooooooooo!!

winter15-foshLast week things focused on Yukari and Quetzalcoatl getting together forming their unique team, but this time it looks like were not getting an episode dedicated to one character or would you consider this a Athena themed episode?

———————————-

Evil or not evil?

Yeah totally (not) evil maybe…

Happy Birthday Yoshichika! Just kidding it was not his birthday at all, but it was just a way for Shiori to spend some time with her brother along with everyone else?! While there wasn’t a whole bunch of actual plot thrown in this week or anything sneaky involving Quetzalcotal betraying anyone. We did get more reveals about Lucifer provided by Athena who met him and we learned that he started a war and then now he went into hiding afterwards; however after chatting with her we learned that he just wants the gods and humans to co-exists together? After hearing all of that I guess maybe he isn’t really evil? And he doesn’t really have a plan for world domination or is he simply tricking Athena? Either way I guess we shall see later on huh? So was Yoshichika really in the wrong by not trusting a word Athena said about lucifer? I suppose he was wrong for not trusting in his partner 100%, but at the same time she was keeping his identity secret from everyone when it would have helped them a few episodes ago? So maybe both of them are technically in the wrong here? It’s really is hard to feel sorry for either character at this point and once again Yurine is there to be mad at Yoshichika and to my shock Olga as well? REALLY? What makes him the sudden expert on trust? I swear Olga is so damn annoying, but I guess he got Yoshichikha to think that maybe Lucifer is just looking for a new place to call home and doesn’t plan on destroying the world with his powers; however if Lucifer is in fact really evil and wants to rule over the humans I will laugh my ass off because everyone except Yoshichika is believing him.

End Thoughts

Well this was certainly an interesting episode! I felt the drama between Yoshichika and Athena came off a bit forced with them fighting over the fact that Lucifer may or may not be plotting something evil later on? I don’t really know what to believe, but I could see it going either way! Then again if he isn’t evil or plotting world domination or world destruction then what are the Logicalists really fighting for? Who is the real threat? I guess we still have plenty of time for them to appear? While we had that bit of story reveals we did get that really odd animation moment like Mana eating that piece of chicken? What the hell was that? It looked so freaking weird! Was it meant to be that sexual looking or did the team behind Luck and Logic just finish watching Shougeki no Souma and decided they totally needed a scene like that? Also hooray for random bath time fanservice complete with Yoshichika walking in and seeing Yurine and Athena.

    Mmm.. Delicious LOLipops.

    I’m actually coming to really like Luck and Logic. I think they’ve made a good amount of progress from the early feeling that everything in the show was black / white or good / evil. These last few episodes have really made it clear that that’s just Yoshichika’s outlook on the world, and that it’s not really what other people think.

    It also feels like they’ve done a good job filling out other characters, especially with continuing to update the personalities of other characters, like Mana deciding to remove her letter to her parents, or Venus going out to drink with Veronica, or Valkyrie being terrible at drawing. I like that they’re not just doing the one episode and then ignoring them. It really doesn’t take much to keep the characters current, and they’re doing enough to do that.

    Like I said, I’m not even sure that it’s a big turnaround from earlier in the show. I think it’s just more clear that the dichotomous worldview is limited more to Yoshichika, and is not even shared by Athena or Veronica, the two people who seemed to support him most. I would like to see Tamaki get a little more of her own personality, but the story they had her tell of her previous trance partner helped a bit.

      Yeah it has been improving a lot over these past few episodes and agreed Yoshichika is just stuck in the mindset of some gods being pure evil while characters like Quetzalcotal have shown they can change.

      True they have been showing us little details about all of the characters.

      Agreed on Tamaki.

    Athena’s ass was the best part of this episode, but it wasn’t the only good thing.

    Olga actually saying something that showed some thought proves he’s not just an egotistical jerk, which is nice. Few people are jerks 100% of the time. Now I want him to actually get a partner before the end of the show.

    And raising the possibility that Lucifer might not be a bad guy brings in a gray area that can add some depth to this show. Is he or isn’t he a bad guy? And what about Quetzie and their bet? This uncertainty can only make the show more interesting.

    • Foshizzel says:

      Buhahahaha yesssss!

      Ehh I guess I still can’t stand Olga and I probably never will.

      Yeah I don’t know if Lucifer is actually evil or not which is confusing, but I guess we just gotta wait and see? And agreed I’m still waiting to see what the hell this bet is between Quetzie and Lucifer…

    that really odd animation moment like Mana eating that piece of chicken?

    I think it’s meant to riff off of sexy eating, while combining the character’s still awkward social skills. Doga Koba is usually better at pulling this sort of thing off, but here they just gimped the biscuit….

    • HannoX says:

      Yeah, that bit was a total failure. Watching it I knew what it was supposed to be, but I was just WTF?! If it was supposed to be sexy eating why not just go with the standard sushi roll?

      • skylion says:

        Well I wouldn’t call it total failure; given the character I find it endearing enough, just so oddly placed…needed some build up.

    • Foshizzel says:

      Yeah mana is awkward but that short piece of animation made her more freakish! WHO EATS LIKE THAT? I don’t care how awkward you are irl that was just out there…and true if it had more animation frames or was slower it wouldn’t look so odd…

      • Highway says:

        I dunno, I’ve eaten some things and just known that it didn’t look pretty, even trying to be neat and clean. Sometimes you just end up eating something the wrong way.

    Out of the norm with the absence of the monster of the week shtick but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing since it’s an aspect that can be tiring if overused. In exchange, we get to see how everyone functions outside of their duties and it’s rather nice. Yoshichika’s father tends to put me off whenever he shows up. I think it’s a bad sign if a guy is more immature than his teenage kid who has every right to be at that age.

    Unexpected but I’m impressed Olga scolded Yoshichika for mistrusting and Athena. If you can’t trust your partner, it’s time to get a new one. He also gets points for scolding about distrusting outsiders. However, such is a debatable matter so Yoshichika isn’t entirely in the wrong. If Lucifer’s indeed evil, then Yoshichika is free to condemn him after he’s done something to deserve it. First impressions are everything.

    • Foshizzel says:

      Yep even the gods need a break from monster of the week battles and it was nice to see them kick back and relax even though we all could have predicted the harem-ish toloveru bathroom antics a mile away! As for Yoshichika’s dad hes the typical fun anime dad like Ichigo’s dad in bleach, Coconuts dad from Dagashi Kashi and countless others! Their idea of being “cool” I guess?

      Yeah I’m glad Olga did that but at the same time I HAAAATEEEE him so much! WTF does he even know about partners or how to treat others? Seriously? Hokay…

      • BlackBriar says:

        Coconuts dad from Dagashi Kashi and countless others! Their idea of being “cool” I guess?

        Ugh, what an unpleasant reminder. He’s in the character section of my reasoning of dropping that series. I don’t know about Bleach, though, since I never really watched it.
