Nobody ever expects the Greek phalanx.
Yet another tremendously unexciting episode. This show needs to either pick up the pace badly or flex some animation muscles again, because the constant infodumping is sure as hell not cutting it. The vampire gets her spew of infodumping, an abortive lance-punch, and then is immediately relegated to damsel in distress for a Greek-based faction lead by a wannabe frat boy/date rapist who is 0 for 2 against the protagonists thus far. To be concluded next week. What’s really impressive about this episode are all the places they could have done something entertaining but instead decided to have it instead happen offscreen or just cut it off before anything actually happened. Would it really have hurt them to actually show a little bit of any of Izayoi’s little fights besides giant disco light effects, or let Bunny kick some Spartans around before reining her in? I can only imagine that they couldn’t find any way to cut away from Izayoi punching a lance head on so they tried to make that as uninteresting as possible too. Huzzah.
