Kamisama Dolls episode 3

I love ice cream. Like….if I could only eat ice cream all day long I would be a happy person. I am confused on how we can send people to the moon and make tiny machines that allow humans to communicate across the world but we can’t make veggies taste like ice cream. Like should that have been scientist first goal in life? Eating veggies would help cure a lot of the world’s problems. Big mistake scientists.

Writing blog posts after drinking Code Red and eating ice cream is an excellent idea. Perhaps I should just consume this items all the time so I can be in a happy mood.

Also why did my car insurance raise my rate by 50 dollars? Losers. LOSERS!


Kyouhei is a people person, I sense this.

Oh yes anime. Anime anime anime. Soon I will be up to my eyeballs in anime. GO ME! But for now it is Kamisama Dolls episode 3. Spoilers for arms flying everything!


The Summer Anime Season is not a good season for arms...

Episode Summary: Two men are transporting Aki back to the village gossiping about how easy it was to capture Aki (though they didn’t capture him at all….). They start talking about some family feud between the Kugas and the Hyugas but they don’t get too far in the conversation as Aki squishes them and the car. Elsewhere Utao is being cute and adorable serving food at the café and failing while doing so. The fun takes a back seat when Shiba arrives home with her friend. Said friend acts like a jerk for no reason and calls the 10 year old a fattie. Awesome times are had by all. After 7 minutes of cake talk the friend harasses Kyouhei (who came home with cake) about sleeping at (with) Shiba. Shiba promises to take Utao out to practice her god doll training. Shiba decides the best place to do so is in front of a group of people. A flying car is involved and Shiba takes Utao away before they are arrested. They wait for Kyouhei but they might be waiting for a while. Aki and his smelly self have found Kyouhei and he demands a sammich. Kyouhei repeats about 230982 times for Aki to go home. But Aki wasn’t very fond of jail, especially when he thinks Kyouhei should share some of the blame.


Best baby sitter ever!

When Aki threatens Shiba Kyouhei gets a little pissed. But before he can actually do anything some random dude comes and tries to capture Aki. Aki escapes and the due is revealed to be Koushiro, a fellow god doll user. He has a few words with Kyouhei and sets off to capture Aki. Utao and Shiba are trying to get away from the drama when another god doll user throws a car at Utao. She manages to stop it but she recognizes the voice and goes XO. Elsewhere in the city Kuuko is doing something…illegal. She leaves the illegal store and witnesses Aki and Koushiro fighting with their god dolls. She manages to get to the fight and save Aki before he is squishes. The dude who threw a car at Utao earlier helps Koushiro from being killed but he is not grateful as Aki got away. And Kyouhei did nothing. THE END!!!

WOOHOO BODY COUNT! Still Kyouhei and his sister are a bit annoying….


Cake is a very important part of my diet too Utao. Eat on.

But at least the scenes with Utao mainly consisted of cake. And I enjoy cake almost as much as I enjoy ice cream. Well normal cake anyway…not crazy wedding cakes that make no sense at all. Because cake needs to make sense. But yes. Utao running around like a clumsy kid was not really shocking. As she is a clumsy child. Perhaps I would not have her helping out in my restaurant with paying customers and expensive plates. But that is just me and my common sense. But yay cake.


I have no idea what this hot mess was all about...

I have no idea what Shiba’s friend was trying to accomplish with her weird behavior. She is so weird she doesn’t even deserve me to look up her name. She gets NO NAME. She just came in the resturante and picked on a little kid who was working for free. And now this 10 year old is going to worry about being fat. Let her be a kid for goodness sake!!!


No explanations needed. Feel free to die right now or something...

Oh yes…the beginning part of the episode with Aki AKA Accelerator escaping. Before the two dudes died in spectacular ways they mentioned something about why Utao is allowed to leave the village. There is apparently a problem between families, the Kugas and Hyugas. And my little trip to Wiki shows me that HAHA Aki’s last name is also Kuga. But since we aren’t supposed to KNOW yet who the Hyugas are….what exactly is their problem with Kyouhei? Unless they hate Kyouhei because he is a spineless dude who left his village. Then maybe I will understand.

What was my point with that last paragraph? Oh so yes. Two feuding families. We don’t get to know any more about that issue because Aki breaks out and tears off limbs. But it sounds like this village has many problems with the few members it does have. We got killer youngsters and angry families. And given the nature of small towns perhaps the entire village is only two families. Weirdos.

Shiba took Utao out to practice with her god doll. That was probably a bad idea. Going to the amusement section of Tokyo on a busy day to practice with your god doll thingy is generally a bad idea. But then Shiba decided that it would be an awesome idea to dig around in the water, around the island that used to be a dump. And that lead to throwing a car up into the air. Yes it is a good idea for Shiba to watch Utao.


What no ketchup?!

Kyouhei would have been watching his special sister but Aki needed a sammich. And Kyouhei’s biggest concern was Aki smelled. Not that he broke out or was killing random people. But that he smelled. And that Aki needed food.


I am sensing a smack down soon...

Despite the fact Aki is a crazy murderer I might feel bad for him. Since we have yet to hear the truth from Kyouhei all we can go on is Aki’s word. And it sounds like both Kyouhei and Aki had something to do with that FIRE that happened in episode one. I think it turned Aki into a murderer and Kyouhei went lala land, protected from any wrong doing. Maybe if Kyouhei had tried a little harder to be a good friend or less of a douchebag who failed to take responsibility for his own actions maybe Aki would not be a smelly murderer eating a sammich after crash a truck.

Or I am wrong and Aki is all at fault and Kyouhei doesn’t deal well with pressure. WHO KNOWS.


Well I guess techinically no one is capturing Aki.

Kyouhei doesn’t have to do anything to stop Aki from his blood bath of fun. Some new dudes are in town. One of which Kyouhei is not happy to see and one who throws a car at Utao. HMMM I wonder about those family blood feuds now.


Look at my bad ass shades! Of course I am cool.

Koushiro is a little bad ass, I think I might enjoy his presence in the show. That and he didn’t try to kill Kyouhei. He just acted a bit like a show off which I am fine with. The car thrower Mahiru looks (sorta) like he could be Utao’s twin. In any event Aki must be strong as it took both those men to squish him a little bit. But since they came out with all their arms and legs both dudes must know what they are doing and don’t suck like Utao. So that is how the village has survived this entire time.


And then everyone was weird.....X__X.

Another weird subplot going on is Kuuko. She seems to be doing something slightly illegal but it helps pays the bills. She sees weird stuff (god dolls) fighting in the sky and is like WOOHOO run to the danger!!!! Then when one of the people causing the danger crashes to the ground (Aki) she decides to take him home as a souvenir. This will end well I can sense it. Accelerator Aki better not be smitten by this girl. She is not a 4 foot nothing clone girl. No sympathy please.


Kyouhei wasn't in jail because...?

And I think that is about it. Everyone is special and full of secrets. And Kyouhei is not looking like a great hero in my eyes. WOOHOO for me and Code Red pushing through this episode!

No. 6 episode 3

XO One and a half days left until Otakon. Clearly my mind was not thinking last year when I planned so many events closed together. Obviously I planted a money tree in my back yard to supply me with a never ending supply of cash. And I guess I planted a back yard while I was at it.

But things are slowly getting accomplished in Casa de Tenchi. I will have clothes to wear next week! I guess that is the most important part. Oh and my cat is doing his part by throwing up as much as possible before I leave. That way I can clean it up now instead of the hours it would take my appointed cat sitter to get here and notice. Thanks cat.


How can one person get so little done in one day? X__X

Up next is the show of the season (?) No. 6. Spoilers for bees and white hair and mice OH MY!


I think Nezumi was just trying to show off his sexy body to Shion...

Episode Summary: Shion takes the grand tour of Nezumi’s house. Which appears to be a library? Shion shows off his learning by not knowing who Shakespeare’s work. When Nezumi teases him Shion explains that they were discouraged from reading classics in school. After Nezumi impresses us with some shirtless Shakespeare Shion takes a hot bath. Because in this wasteland Nezumi has found ways to have hot water. After his bath Shion wants to contact his mom in the city that just tried to kill him. Nezumi manhandles him into throwing away all attachments by ignoring the fact the fact Nezumi clearly has an attachment to Shion. Then Nezumi destroys all my hopes and dreams and says the mice are robots. :( Shion tries asking if Nezumi has seen anything weird in the city. Then Shion starts acting weird. It is time for the bee to come out and kill Shion. Nezumi is quick to push Shion on the bed to carve out the gross thing that is Shion’s neck. The pain becomes too much for Shion and he asks Nezumi to mercy kill him. Nezumi is like um no you dumb boy you need to live! So after some massive pain and suffering Nezumi manages to pull out the baby bee thingy. Shion then passes out for three days. There is a brief scene of Safu thinking back to her departure with her grandmother but that is really not important.


AW Shion needs a hug. And Nezumi didn't punch him in the face. So all is well.

Shion wakes up and he has some weird red ribbon mark going up his body and of course the white hair. He sorta turns into a crybaby about his appearance and about the fact that he got to live and his friend didn’t. Nezumi does not appreciate the fact that he went out and got them Wendy’s and now it is getting cold. So he does some yelling until Shion admits he wants to be alive. They discuss how the city was trying to kill Shion…but the bees are not FROM the city. They are infecting the city and obviously the city will suffer. Nezumi starts laughing and Shion is like let’s save the city! Obviously Nezumi is not down with that plan and tries explaining that to Nezumi without punching his face in. Shion then asks the truth about what happened and why No. 6 is so evil. Nezumi takes him on a trip to a dog infested inn but doesn’t answer on why he personally hates the city. The dogs decide to lick Shion instead of eating his face. The owner of the inn DogWatcher knows Nezumi and does things (for a price) for him. Somehow Shion learns Nezumi sent Shion’s momma a note saying her son was alright. Then Shion gets the great idea to send a note to the city warning about the bees. Nezumi says (without grabbing Shion for once) that if Shion learns the truth about the city and still wants to save them then they are going to become enemies. THE END!

X__X Well that was slightly confusing…..

Shion adjusted well to life on the outside. I suspect that he might be a fluffy bunny who loves everyone. Just a bit. So maybe the reality of the situation hasn’t sunk in yet. Okay what am I saying. XD The reality truly hasn’t hit this boy yet and when it does I am sure Nezumi will be there to pick up the pieces.


I am sure this will make sense later....

I am slightly confused on the whole we weren’t allowed to read classics comment. Of course when we learn more about No. 6 it will make more sense. But for now I would think a civilization that is trying to bring itself back from the brink of extinction would really try to stay connected to the past. I mean maybe I would be more understanding because MacBeth is an English classic and obviously this anime is in Japan. But when Shion confirmed they were discouraged from reading that book so it is back to being odd. Odd folks.


They aren't real?! :( SADNESS!!!

Do you see my sad face? The mice are robots. I thought they were real. Woe is me.

Shion and Nezumi have a very love/hate relationship. Nezumi loves roughing him up and Shion loves pretending like the threat of physical violence doesn’t bother him. Instead he will say things like oh you ARE taller than me. Yeah as he tries to punch your face dude. Or make out with it. Depends on what kind of mood Nezumi is in.

Apparently Shion is amazing. Too amazing for words. Because he apparently knows the entire bee parasite issue despite being freaked out over his dying friend. I didn’t think he was really observing the process that closely. But apparently he was so go him. Not that it really mattered as Nezumi was going to hack at it anyway. Guess the explanation was more for us viewers.


I shall pretend these are sparkles and not a spider web.

Nezumi’s LIVE speech was a bit interesting. I guess it would have been too forceful to imply Shion should live to have sex with him. But maybe Nezumi should have just stuck with the mom route and left out the possible love interest. Although Nezumi did go on and on about how Shion could never contact his mom again……So I guess this LIVE speech was pretty useless on Nezumi’s part yes?


This sounds slightly sexy...

Shion being upset about the slight alteration in his appearance is dumb. Especially when Nezumi has scars on his back as well. I think Shion should have been upset for a second then really focused on it wasn’t fair he was alive while his friend wasn’t.

I like that Shion made a good point. Nezumi is all like forget about everyone else, be a loner like me but hello. You almost exposed yourself by trying to save Shion. So obvious this logic doesn’t apply to potential love interests.


Clearly no one is making sense. Water for everyone!

So here is the part that confuses me. Once Shion explains this whole bee situation to Nezumi they just assume the bees are not connected to No 6. This is after they talked about how Shion was targeted for death. Like….I just ASSUMED that people who were talking smack about the city were implanted with these bees. Of course this is a rather…special way to take out smack talkers and could lead to more smack talkers. But despite the fact that it might not be the easiest way to eliminate people I just assumed it was the city.


Never mind. I guess Nezumi prefers shoving and intimidation verses the water.

But no. After Nezumi was like blah blah they hate you he starts cackling that the city has been invaded by killer bees and they deserve it. So obviously Nezumi doesn’t think this is the city’s doing. The city is capable of doing many things but killer bees is not one of them.


This is how Nezumi communicates his love for Shion.

And then Shion lost his mind. I mean I guess he has a right to be worried about his mom. I would be. But maybe he should be thinking about a plan to save the city later. Not in front of the boy who obviously hates the city. Nezumi has good reason to hate the city so maybe Shion should be grateful to his savior. Oh and the city TRIED TO KILL YOU SHION! Maybe you should have asked Nezumi to protect yo momma and not the entire city.


Yay we aren't dead. This is a good thing!

The trip to the hotel was weird. Nezumi looked like he thought it was weird too. Like he was going to kill those dogs and Shion’s special specialness caused the dogs to turn all lovely on him. Everything is special hurray.

I am beginning to sense that everyone outside the city will have a special name. Dog Watcher indeed. I found it interesting there were that many people on the outside. I thought after the war people grouped together and lived in the city. I suppose it is possible people who rejected this new city were able to escape into the outside world. I suppose anyway.


Being enemies means the make-up sex will be better woohoo!

So after Nezumi does something REALLY NICE and REALLY DANGEROUS for Shion he (Shion) loses his mind again. What is with this constant saving the city crap? Why would you automatically assume the bees will all hatch in the spring? Yours obviously hatched now so this is my confused face. But Shion and his confused little soul. Thinking he can use robotic rats to talk to the people who tried to kill him. Crazy indeed.


I wasn't hungry anyway....

So the episode ends with Nezumi being all pissed off. Which I don’t blame him. Looks like he is going to be emo throughout the next episode too. Sadness. Nezumi thought his daring rescue would end in sexy times but then he got mush for brains.

Yuri Yuri episode 3

Well then. My master plan for yesterday was to get some blogging done, go to work, and basically catch up on my life. What I managed to get done was sleep for about 15 hours and wash my hair. Go me. Surely I am almost ready for Otakon. XD

So now today…I am still behind! Hurray. So it is looking catching up on last week’s anime might not happen. I will have lots to do when I get back from Otakon right? But after last week I think I am going to take a more chilled approached to life. Not be so hell bent on schedules and what not. This of course will apply after Otakon because much fun needs to be scheduled.


BOO indeed.

Up first on the catch up list is Yuri Yuri episode 3. Spoilers for…….nothing really….


I see everything!!!!!

Episode Summary: Akari is busy smiling at her new and fun life at Somewhere Junior High. Kyouko manages to make it to school on time but forgets her homework. She is punished with more homework later. Yui is like…yeah have fun doing that all on your own because she is a true friend. But Yui does teach all the girls how to write things on their hands to better remember things. See she is living on her own now and must do mature things. Once the girls get over the shock that one of their friends is living on their own they can’t wait to visit Yui. On their next Sunday off from school and Kyouko and her eye go to visit Yui. Yui suggests right away that they invite Akari and Chinatsu over for lunch. After the girls arrive and Kyouko establishes that they need a password to enter the apartment the fun continues over to the grocery store. And by fun I mean Kyouko wants to buy a million ice creams. Yui ends up buying her one so life isn’t so horrible. XD They make a meal and slowly Yui realizes that Chinatsu might be in love with her. But since Kyouko continues to act like a crazy person no one really notices.


So much friend abuse.

During a trip down memory lane Kyouko pretends that she and Yui did the deed at age…5. When Yui tries to correct such behavior soda spills all over Chinatsu. Since they are all Japanese Chinatsu must change clothes immediately and take a bath. Very clean these people are. Chinatsu is all happy that she gets to wear Yui’s clothes. Yui tries to take a shower with Chinatsu but that is fail. Kyouko decides to stay the night which upsets Yui at first. But then Kyouko reveals she really came over to spend time with a lonely Yui. Yui is touched until she realizes that Kyouko forgot her homework. This causes all 4 girls to be late to school the next day. But that is okay because they are together…as Chinatsu and Kyouko fight over the fact they both got to wear Yui’s clothes. THE END!!!


Yuri at 5 years old HURRAY!

So I am not sure how much of this episode I can blog. See I am still caught up on the little issue of a 14 year old living on her own! Confusion all over my face.


What? I can live on my own no problem.

I am just assuming Yui is 14 of course. She could be 13 which would make the situation worse or she could be 15 which would make the situation….I guess…a slight fraction of a point better. But the standard age for a 8th grader is 14 so that is what I am going with.


WTF is going on here?!

And there was no reason given for Yui living on her own. Sometimes in animes the family moves and the HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT stays behind to finish out their school career. Or the family lives in a small town and want to send their child to a better school. But I have no idea why a junior high kid with a family living in town close to the school would just randomly move out. It makes no sense at all. I am assuming that is why no one really asked because any explanation would be stupid. It is best to ignore these type things I am assuming.


Ice cream is a very important part of the food pyramid.

The rest of the episode was devoted to showing how awesome and mature Yui is living on her own. I am 27 years old and hate cooking. But I guess if 14 year olds are living on their own they need to start cooking at a young age. My house is not spotless but then again I have stuff. Maybe it is all cool and shiny living on your own 3 days after it happens. But once you are old like me it is BLEH coming home from work and having to still clean and do laundry.


This comment was slightly random...

Besides Yui being a domestic goddess Kyouko had the perv meter going through the roof. Chinatsu better watch out as Yui has her eyes on her. And Akari better start crying because no one cares about her.


The hair will consume you. Obviously she can't be a bridesmaid.

Even though Kyouko is the most perverted person ever she does make good points on a few issues. One being Akari’s hair. And most hair in animes. We can SEE how short Akari’s hair is yet some of it is tied in a bun on the side. Way too much too much given how short the rest of the hair is. So while Kyouko is a crazy person she does make sense from time to time.


Why are there so many sparkles...

Actually without Kyouko’s antics this episode would have been super boring. X__X Yui is on her own pretending to be an adult and Chinatsu’s crush on Yui isn’t really going anywhere since she is fairly normal. And Akari is…..well not there at all. So thanks to Kyouko an episode about cooking food and clean houses was slightly amusing.


A true glimpse of friendship. Love it.

And even though Kyouko forgot…everything for an overnight trip it becomes apparent why she came over in the first place. Because even though Yui is pretending to be a mature awesome 14 year old who can live on her own she is really just a scared 14 year old who is lonely. So Kyouko is a great friend and Yui needs to be more forgiving of her antics.


We can all do detention together!!!

Hopefully the next episode is a little more interesting. Also I want to know how much Kyouko gets in allowance because that ice cream alone (well all the cartons she wanted to buy) probably would have cost 30 bucks. X__X Kids these days.

Blood-C episode 3

So. As you can see not much anime blogging got done on my trip to dirt and cactus land. Actually it would be more like…no anime blogging on done. And now with all this crap on my nails typing is fun yay!!!

But at least that huge spider didn’t eat me. I should be thankful for that.


Look how clueless and cute I am XD

Since I have to download Blood-C to watch it anyway that is what I decided to blog first. So I could have something to do on the plane when I am eating pretzels and pretending to be fine. Spoilers for….um…nothing actually?


Because cutting eggs is the most dangerous thing Saya does. Ever.

Episode Summary: Saya’s father and Fumito watch (nervously) as Saya makes a bento box. Saya barely can cut the eggs with a small knife which I think everyone finds special. Then everyone eats breakfast and it’s all eggs and rainbows. Saya promises to become a better cook and we learn her father can only drink weak coffee. There is also a bit of candy action going on again. Hard to believe the café is named after this sweet and Saya is just now eating it but a great deal of time is devoted to Saya eating and loving this candy. After some brief singing Saya runs into Mr Puppy. She is able to pick him up and save him from the dangers of the heavily traffic road. He eventually runs off and Saya is late to school. As a punishment Ms Homeroom/Chemistry teacher uses Saya as free labor. Saya asks some questions and Ms Tsutsutori reveals she used to be a researcher but being a chemistry teacher in this small town allows her to study the most interesting thing EVER. She also says she likes Saya which makes Saya all blushy. Ms Tsutsutori makes Saya promise to come to her if she (Saya) ever has any problems. After school everyone wants to do something but they realize that they still live in loser town. And the place Itsuki was talking about last week was actually Fumito’s place. But since there is really nothing to do they make their way to the bakery. As they complain about the town again everyone realizes that Saya has never watched or owned a TV. Life is truly sad.


X__X Are these girls monsters too? But I guess it is hard to be a teenager in Nomville.

They finally get over the lack of TV and make it to Fumito’s. There Itsuki watches as Saya goes on and on about Fumito’s cooking and such. There might be a little bromance growing as Itsuki also enjoys making cakes. Saya continues to be lalala until a police officer comes by. The only bakery owner dude in town has gone missing so the whole town must be informed. Saya is all XO I know him and puts on her serious face. They are told to go home and Saya is like it’s morphin time. Her father informs her it is a baddie and gives her the sword of awesome. She runs around town until she finds the bakery dude walking around like a zombie. He walks to an old train station. A random train pulls up and bakery dude walks in it. Then he wakes up just in time to be aware that he is being torn to shreds. Saya watches this all and THEN stabs Mr. Monster Train. It morphs into really gross Monster train blob. They fight for a while until Saya gets all red eyed and takes things seriously. She lands the final blow smiling like a crazy person but the dying creature manages to say something cryptic before it splats. The random voice that says random things does so at the end of the episode, talking about maybe certain parts of humans can’t change? But if they could wouldn’t it be interesting? This time Saya (or a Saya like person) is sitting down listening to this person. THE END!

Like for real folks. What is going on with this show? I don’t even know at this point. I haven’t really been all internety this week so I don’t know how people reacted to episode 2 but I am thinking episode 3 isn’t going over that well either.


Better start praying for the bakery dude too.

But I guess we can be grateful that there was a lot less singing today. We got maybe two verses and we were done. No one talked about the singing. Life moved on rather quickly from the singing. Maybe there will be no singing in the future once the body count takes off?

However I am not very impressed with Saya. She looked around like she thought something was wrong but kept on going. If Saya has been trained for this all her life shouldn’t she be better at sensing the danger? Well I guess the danger was on a moving train so that was a bit hard to sense. Still though.

Oh yeah. Guess we didn’t learn much about Saya and her family’s past this week. We were LIED to. Lies folks. All of them.


Wonder if she will survive to see the end of the series.

We did learn about Ms Homeroom teacher Tsutsutori. We saw her putting a human body model back together and the first organ in her hand was the heart. Symbolic yes? We learned that being a teacher was not her first choice and that her field research work so very different from chemistry class. And she was acting like Saya was the most interesting thing in this town.


Please be a little more obvious next time Ms Teacher.

So obviously Ms. Tsutsutori knows about the Elder Bairn, possibly helped create Saya, and is only in this small town of nothingness to study Saya at work and all the super natural stuff that happens. Because I has my anime learnings folks. That whole almost kissing and saying she “likes” Saya was all an act. What she really was saying is she likes her blood. Maybe Ms Tsutsutori is an Elder Bairn too? Anyway she is in town because of the monsters and Saya and that is all that matters.



The whole scene walking home from school was too dumb for words. It was already established last week that this town doesn’t even have a Wal-Mart. Not sure why we needed to go into great detail again. Also I thought Saya said last week she didn’t have a TV but maybe she said she didn’t watch any….Either way everyone is oh so sad because their town sucks.


The candy is really humans. That is the whole plot of the show WOOHOO!!!

They end up going to Fumito’s place to eat as there is nowhere else to go in town for entertainment. Funny how everyone loves Saya but has never spent time with her before. So Itsuki took her to Fumito’s place to spend time with her yet has to watch as she goes on and on about Fumito’s cooking. Also she brought up Shinichiro again. He has yet to do anything to make him so important to Saya and at this point it is forcing the viewers to care about someone we know nothing about and can’t feel anything for. So basically Itsuki should just kill himself.

The police officer randomly showing up was awesome. Maybe in small towns cops really do that. Felt like a Sci-Fi movie to me. I enjoyed the flashback too. I mean….we just got told that everyone in town knows each other. I kinda figured Saya knew Mr. Bakery Man and his family. But danger folks. Danger is afoot. Considering the nature of these monsters though shouldn’t things like this happen all the time and no one thinks anything of it? Like Sunnydale only with a bigger mall?


Just...bye dude. Apparently you are going to die.

Saya is 19 kinds of suck. I actually thought the bakery man got turned into a monster thingy and she was going to have her first battle with a humanoid baddie. But nope nope. I knew he was going to die the minute he went missing. I just thought that Saya would actually try to save him. But she made NO EFFORT to save him at all. She just watched, as if she was trying to see how the monster was able to fight and what it did. Like hello isn’t your job to protect the town?


Aw no heads flying around. :(

First bloody death though. True CLAMP style we got body parts flying all over the place. I wonder if this was the censored version though. Did anyone see a version of him all falling apart? I saw him getting squished and then his arm hitting the door. So we got our Blood franchise violence. Just thought Ms Cloud for Brains would have attempted a rescue.


Someone is enjoying the killing process.....

Dude. Did you see her smile when she stabbed the monster in the head? That was a true Saya moment. That maybe that is the real Saya and her father has been keeping her at bay all these years. I don’t think someone can smile like that and have fluffy dog thoughts too. Evil smile is evil.


X__X I think I was more surprised that it had eyes, not that it talked.

The battle wasn’t anything special as the monster was just a blob. But this one managed to say a sentence before it was squished. Honor the covenant. What does that mean though? That there is deal between the baddies and Saya’s family? That some people can get nommed but if things get out of control Saya is allowed to destroy them. It doesn’t make much sense now but I am sure it will later. CLAMP is very good at explaining things, like how Mr. Bakery man ended up in a trance to begin with.


Now who could this be.....

And the end of the episode was more talk about humans changing from the mysterious voice. Only this time instead of just having the ominous floating blood vial thingys Saya was there. We couldn’t see her face but she was there listening to this man speech and staring at an empty chair. So in her spare time not watching TV is she being indoctrinated by this man who is clearly talking about her? The change is probably Saya being a happy person verses the cold blooded killer she was meant to be…..


Slowly making progress with this dog....

Oh and there was another dog scene. So amazing what the picking up and the dog running away. Really too amazing for words.

So that is about it. Cake, school, death. Very slowly learning new things about Saya. Next week all we got to see is more…cake and school. Sounds like plan I guess?
