Hello there my lovely readers! I have not fallen off the planet or into a cart full of clothes, drowning in zippers and buttons. Although sometimes it feels like that. XD Never fear, anime posts are here!

I'll never let go Kevin...unless a better offer comes around. Then peace out.
Episode Summary: Camio and his apparent underling are watching a play of some sort. The underling wants to know what Camio's plan is now that his identity has been uncovered. Is it time to step up your game? Since we are watching the characters watch a play..it is time for the school to put on some themselves. Or maybe Camio was watching another classes play and it is William's house turn to make a play? Either way the play is Hamlet and both William and Isaac are like boring, who cares about Hamlet? Apparently Dantalion and Sytry do. Evil Uncle and Crazy Girlfriend in the house. They decide they are the super best at these roles and argue with each other about who is more awesome. William thinks the two should be doing more demon stuff, not focused on a play. William has decided that he will be the director as you can still get some of the glory and not be on stage. For some reason that I can't remember William goes to see Kevin despite the fact he is obviously a liar. Kevin tries to cover up his special ways by saying he is betting on whose play is better which throws William off. When William goes to leave Kevin deliberately touches William's back, putting a seal on it. There are some other antics that take place, where I am sure William is like demons suck and aren't real blah blah. Gilles appears in between Dantalion's legs and reminds the demons that the great Sabbat is going to happen soon in hell and as candidates they all better show up. Dantalion really doesn't want to leave William but he and Sytry send in requests to Swallow to leave campus...in the middle of the night. William finds out and while Isaac is going on and on about the holy demon day William is more pissed rehearsal for the play will be messed up.

You are so boring...yet I can't quit you. But if you need someone to kill you I love you enough to do the task.
The party in hell looks beyond boring. Everyone is wearing fancy costumes as all four Kings and their candidates are announced. Sytry looks really uncomfortable while Dantalion barely sticks around and walks outside on the patio. There he thinks of the past, how he spent time with a worried Solomon. Solomon assumed someone was going to kill him one day and Dantalion promised to be that person instead. Camio is announced as the son of Lucifer and the 4th King doesn't announce a candidate at all. The three Kings that matter gather together and talk about this William and Solomon problem. Baalberith has decided to step up and announce to all the demons that Solomon is back. He is like we don't need him alive for a new King to be picked right? William and Isaac end up going outside. I remember....no I don't remember actually why. I am sure someone heard or saw something and William went to find out. An entire horde of demons appear to kill demon , like this is an episode of Inu-Yasha or something. William is like nope this is just a bunch of atoms and isn't happening LALALLA! Isaac thinks it is cool until they start to attack. Sytry, Dantalion, and Dantalion's main goat arrive to save the day, each asking William to pick them to be King. William gets all stupid again which causes him to almost be attacked. The spell on William's back activates and causes all the nearby demons to be injured. This is including Dantalion. Dantalion fights the spell which causes him to lose his mind and he attacks William. William is shocked and the scene with Solomon repeats in Dantalion's mind again. Dantalion tries to fight the spell but it is Camio who calms Dantalion down eventually and tells all the demons to leave William alone. Dantalion is so hurt that he would try to kill William. William has instantly forgiven Dantalion and is like lets get back to the play people!!!!! In hell the three important kings think about how all their candidates are....attached to Solomon, just like they were at one point. The day of the play Hamlet gets sick so William is forced to fill in. Sytry and Dantalion deviated from the play tremendously, trying to make William pick them for King. THE END!!!

Thanks for forgiving me William. That's why I love your dead self.
This episode...was probably one of the more enjoyable episodes of the series thus far. Almost like the first episode. Back when I had hopes and dreams for this show. So much dramatics!!! But yeah...I only rolled my eyes half the time during this episode.

Does Camio sense there is no room for him in this pile...of something?
Camio...what the hell is his deal? Or really what is the director's deal with Camio? He showed up and revealed he was a demon...and then that was it. Glances in the hallways but that is about it. He is attending classes and being the perfect student all the while this drama is going on. And really, how can Camio be a contender for the throne if he has been roaming the Earth for 60 lonely years? Shouldn't he be out of the running? Of course....the main ones in the running so far also seem to be cast offs from hell. Former human, former angel (because for some reason most demons are not former angels), and now a half human/half demon.

Um..I am guessing nothing.
So yeah....Camio/Nathan was sitting around watching a play for 5 seconds of the episode, was at the party during the middle of the episode looking bored, and showed up at the end of the episode because now he is in a semi alliance with Dantalion and Sytry to protect their beloved William. I think all of these appearances took 30 seconds. He needs to do MORE. Be apart of the group more. Show me that he wants to be Ruler of Hell. Instead he is still playing the school boy act, no mention or sad looks of his lady love. It just seems odd. At least I was right about him being Lucifer’s son. GO ME! So why hasn't Lucifer been shunned for sleeping with humans? And shouldn't the throne be automatically be Camio's?

The play of fabulousness!
I can't really blame Camio without blaming the others either though. Dantalion and Sytry could watch over William without being at the school. Or participating in so many activities. Even William is like shouldn't you guys be doing something else with your time? You know torturing me more? No? It is time for Shakespeare? Dantalion does know he is the baddie and Sytry does know he is the insane woman in Hamlet right? Why not fight for the “good” role?

A super duper party and our blood is the party favor!
All the scenes with Kevin and William bother me. Mainly because it makes William look so stupid. It is like William doesn't want to see or believe the truth. No no, it is better to believe that Kevin is betting on...plays or some stupid things like that. Of course William is not good at...seeing what is front of him. There are actual demons and other...things out there and he is like lalala. So maybe he is just too special to live. William should still be upset over the way Kevin treated him and Kevin should be trying harder to get back in William's good graces and cover up what he is doing.

Nothing suspicious at all...
How can people ask permission to go home...so late at night? Like really Swallow. Really? I am guessing that he doesn't remember the demons yes? So many suspicious things going on and no one but the crazy Isaac sees it! XD Can I have the night off so I can take care of a family emergency? Wait another new student already used that excuse?! And now everyone is throwing a fit because we will miss rehearsal for this messed up play? Oh woe is the world.

I think Dantalion has reason to worry...
I found this party...odd. Mainly because NOTHING came from it. Not one thing. Okay maybe a few things. But the purpose behind the party seems lost on me. I understand it was a demon “holiday” but....aren't all the candidates we know already...well known to the demons? And their backers? I feel as if this party should have announced ALL the candidates. If there are more. Are there more? I don't know. I just thought it was really set up for the viewers to see all the players in this game. There wasn't much substance behind it. No purpose other than that so it felt weak.

Um.....that is a different approach...
Baalberith is an asshole yes? I thought that Beelzebub was the one to watch out for. He is trying to cause a war in the human world yes with his crazy in love with him demon friend yes? But apparently that can be forgiven or overlooked. Because Baalberith has another plan. His super awesome plan on getting the throne for Sytry is....to kill William. Um can anyone explain this to me? I guess the soul can still make decisions or maybe that means it will be a free for all for king since there will be no Elector? Is that what the plan is? Because if dead William can still make a choice I don't think he would pick Baalberith's person. Because you know....he killed William? Just saying.
 photo realistepisode712_zps8f3791ea.jpg
I am sure he wants to kill William too. Or make out with him.
I think William should just...stay inside. Or maybe when the demons go out of town they can leave someone behind to protect William, more than the bats? Because every time William walks near the forest something bad happens to him. Not that he believes it but you know...party on demons. I mean really folks....Baalberith tells you all to kill William and you rush to do it? Even though any demon that goes near William has died in the past. You would think that maybe...maybe these demons could be a little sneakier. Wait until William is asleep and attack. Maybe their power is stronger this day since it is their holy day. I don' know. Just felt a little special. I understand following orders but lets use our brains a little bit. Unless they have no brains.....go on red shirt demons.

Stop asking questions and look at the sparkles!
So why was it last week when Swallow was being hurt the demons said they couldn't interfere with demon business but this week they were like SAVE WILLIAM! I understand that William is more important to them than Swallow but William was the one asking them to save Swallow. And this attack was a direct order from Baalberith. So...why is it okay now? HMMMMM! I think this not interfering in demon stuff is a bunch of bs lies. LIES! Save the William.

It is good to know Kevin is so useful.
When William had this little talk with Kevin earlier he was given a protection seal on his back. Which helped him out when Dantalion and Sytry...and maybe Camio were unable to protect him from every blow. However this spell also started to attack Dantalion. Which looked more like it was powering him up than hurting him. Like overpowering him so he lose control and accidentally kill himself. Unleash the rage Dantalion! UNLEASH IT!!!! Or...or...you could almost kill William against your will and go all angsty on us. Not my precious Solomon, I almost hurt you! I need to throw myself off a cliff now!
 photo realistepisode717_zps2472f3fc.jpg
Remember our past love!
Of course that didn't happen. Because even though William doesn't believe in any of this nonsense but wants everyone to be okay. Also there were no punishments given out to those who went against the demon horde. No no, it was clearly time to get ready for the play and for everyone to basically sit on William as he became Hamlet. Was there ever a doubt that William would play that role? Of course it was better than the messed up version of Snow White I saw last week......Pick me fair Prince!!

Solomon is hooooooooooooooe.
Did I cover everything? There was a scene showing Solomon and Dantalion talking, about how Solomon knows his days are number because of a relative and he is okay with Dantalion killing him. Thus making the angsty scene later more angsty. Not your fault Dantalion. There is another King in the demon world but he hasn't appeared to pick a candidate. So the party was even more useless. And Baalberith is extra confusing now because he and all the other kings are also pillars for Solomon? So why are you trying to kill him? Mixed signals guys!!!! Until next time!

1st sentence of summary:

Problem: Yes; that is NOT Camio's underling, that is Beelzebub. And this scene happen right after William found out Camio's a demon.

The play they are watching is Shakespear's Macbeth, where the says, "fair is foul, and foul is fair".
------ Act I Scene I

Anonymous- OHHHHHHHH that makes more sense. So it was more HMMMM what you going to do now moment than one of help. Fair and foul indeed then!

Then again I don't think William really cares that anyone is a demon. So all this planning really doesn't seem to matter. XD Like William won't use this to hurt Camio or pick him so it's really not a big deal. Or maybe it is because no one else can sense demons even if they are a demon and Camio has revealed himself.
