Stellar performance there.
Yet another transitioning episode that’s hard to say anything intelligent about because absolutely nothing happens. The whole thing could have been skipped by just having Tsukiumi and Musubi show up in the first couple minutes and nothing of particular value would have been lost except for Horie Yui as the Sekirei of Domestic Abuse. That could have certainly been more subtle. It doesn’t help that she has almost the exact same design as her Kampfer character too. I also have to wonder how exactly they’re keeping this Sekirei plan a secret when one of them is carrying a giant hammer through a hopital and the city streets.
It was a little more watchable than the last couple since they were focusing on showing some different Sekirei/Ashikabi relationships instead of giant dumps of exposition, but Seven Arcs still isn’t living up to what it could be doing here. At least after all the waffling around, we’re finally getting back to some action next week. I’m still not sure how exactly that’s going to lead into whatever ending they have planned for it. Seven Arcs should really just take this series and run. The best part of this season so far has been the completely original mini-arc at the start. Let’s have more of that and less mopeyness already. Hell, Minato was even kind of manly back then. Now he’s just… Yukimura. Good lord, I’m in bizarro world here.
Uzume vs the team.
