Wasn’t This Show About Detectives? Or Segways?

June 2nd, 2011

Yes, this was indeed the most interesting little bit of action from the ‘action-packed’ episode about detectives fighting magical French knights. Almost the entire rest of it was speedlines. And this was speedlines too. Along with apparently the slowest moving magical ice that I’ve ever seen. Or her sword grew a few dozen yards in the couple of seconds it was off-screen. I almost miss the magical hair. I do like how Aria dropped her swords to catch a gun that she then refused to use, although I’m not sure that I follow Jeanne’s logic of how Aria wouldn’t kill her, correct as it may have been. It’s not like one tried to slash the other in half a moment before or anything.

    Butei are not allowed to kill, no matter what. A Butei receives 3x the normal punishment for breaking any laws, including killing.

    Aroduc says:

    I’m fairly sure the multiple death traps, repeated frostbite attempts, and attempted vivisections push it into the realm of justifiable.

    Twi says:

    Nope, still can’t kill. Butei undergo that on a constant basis, but the system is made so that they can’t kill. The only ones who can get away with it are those that receive a job like a cleaner(assassin) and even then, that doesn’t reach the light of day or they would pay for it.

    Think Minkei from Zero In, but with even stricter rules. Being a Butei kind of sucks.

    Aroduc says:

    A little fuzzy on the concept of self-defense and justifiability, are we?

    Twi says:

    Eh, probably.

  • tylon says:

    This looks like a RPG… 2 Fighters (swords and guns) and 1 Magic User.

    Ya, Butei are not allowed to kill. They apprehend the criminals and let others to sentence them death penalty… –> They let someone else to do it. Thus, they don’t have to dirty their hands. :p

    Benigmatica says:

    So all of their equipped weapons are just for self-defense?

    Twi says:

    Pretty much, being a Butei is like getting a bull’s eye on your head. That, and catching criminals.

  • ShiroRyuu says:

    How come i see that girl alot like saber from type moon company so much XD XD

    tylon says:

    Cause she is voiced by the same Seiyuu…
    Behold my sacred sword. Exca… NO, it’s Durandal… :)

    Wouldn’t she feels cold by wearing this little?

    Twi says:

    I’m guessing immunity to ice is part of the having ice powers package.
