Ok, no power of love in this episode. Just the force of will. Who didn’t see this coming?
We are full steam ahead for some deus ex machina finish…
Everybody’s talking at me / I don’t hear a word they’re saying / Only the echoes of my mind.
For an episode that confirmed nothing and went nowhere, I sort of enjoyed it.
There’s four episodes left, and we actually still haven’t seen Elcreth. I’m starting to wonder if they’re going to hold him for a potential second season.
Am I going senile? When did Yumeji injure his ankle?
Ok, let’s go ahead and get the question that no one’s been asking out of the way. Isana has by far the best body of anyone on the show and she also had the cutest bikini. So Isana > everyone else. Any fanservice war veterans can now proceed to the unemployment line to receive your checks. Thank you for participating.
Little bit of an odd episode here, as I’m not sure John Doe’s sudden Oracle-ness turn makes sense considering his history of attacking Yumeji, but let’s run with it.
To some degree, I feel like JC Staff is still holding back Yumekui Merry in some ways (maybe the shittastic animation quality of this episode), but I give director Shigeyasu Yamauchi a lot of credit for successfully transitioning the show from typical JC Staff fantasy/monster-of-the-week fare to a much more darker show that explores the morally gray.
Keeps the donuts away.
