Guardian Charm Himari #07 — Gun Vs Sword

February 17th, 2010


Wow. Gun won for once.


Well, the first half of the episode certainly wasn’t the most compelling bit of this show to date, and it’d be nice if Ques had something a little more interesting going for her other than some forgotten promise with Chair-For-Brains and a hatred of the supernatural. I think the rest of the team was also needlessly shocked that Doorknobhead’s family arranged his marriage to another demon killer family, but maybe I’m just over-exhausted with that particular cliche. Otherwise, there weren’t too many big developments this week outside of learning that Ques is responsible for Yuuto’s allergy because she was a bit of a jealous bint even as a child.

The showdown between Ques and Himari in the second half went more or less as predicted, with neither of them really winning and Himari only running off after Ques drove her into bloodlust mode and getting the upper hand for a moment. I was rather amused when Ques started taking potshots while Himari was off monologuing to herself. If every antagonist did that, there would be significantly fewer heroes in the action anime world. I am wondering if this little spat is going to be what carries them to the end of this show’s run though. The OP and ED have made it obvious from the very start that Ques is just another one of Yuuto’s many concubines, so they’ve got to all team up to fight something for the grand finale. Hopefully it’s not Yuuto’s inability to perform, double entendre fully implied.

    Yup, this show will have a sappy ending for sure.

  • Vegetarian4Life says:

    I’m surprised at how good this show is!

  • Hyosuke says:

    Well I’m glad that the anime is still being faithful to the manga. They’ve been following it pretty well and this was a battle in the manga I was looking forward to seeing animated. Though it seemed pretty short, thats probably my only complaint.

  • Anonymous says:

    is this gonna be 12 episodes or 24?

    i don´t think there is enough manga for 24 episodes
