Ok, I’m still valiantly attempting to grasp what’s going on in this show. Some sort of maid army is attacking someone…Toori’s gang is still having the party from last episode, but they notice the battle. They move to intervene, but are interrupted by the appearance of a ghost. Apparently, the maids are autonomous dolls or something to that effect. Kazumo (who I’m assuming is the head maid) easily takes on a mecha and shoots down a ship by herself. Yeah…no clue what’s really going on in this show. As I would hope from Sunrise, the animations for this episode looked great, especially in the battle with Kazumo against the mecha. The action seems a bit sudden, but I think that’s the point.
Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon
Most of the beginning of this week’s episode involves Toori attempting to go down a Path of Remorse before confessing to Horizon. Some of his friends talk about Horizon as they shop for a party. We’re also introduced to a boy who finds himself rooming with a girl for some reason. After hearing Horizon sing, Toori finally goes down the path to find Masazumi, who is on the way to deliver an eroge to him. Toori runs back out of the Path of Remorse while Masazumi is told about Horizon’s death, and we see a flashback of Toori chasing after Horizon as she is run over by a carriage. I’m still trying to understand this, but it seems like Toori is to blame for Horizon’s death. Still trying pretty hard to understand what’s going on…but this show is still amusing.
First off, I believe that the girl that Tooru was going to “confess” to and identified as Horizon is actually a living doll of some sort, not the real Horizon. In this episode, we have a class where the history of the world of the series is revealed (something about two worlds and fighting and stuff). We are also introduced to the character Masazumi, who talks with Horizon able her past, especially her mother’s murder. She also backs down from the student council president election because of Tooru. Meanwhile, Tooru enlists everyone’s help in his plan to confess to Horizon. So, I’m finding this series hard to follow, but I will admit it’s pretty funny to watch. To be fair, I didn’t understand much of Code Geass from the first few episodes, so I’ll give Sunrise the benefit of the doubt.
Alright, I really didn’t know what to expect from this show, except that it was Sunrise. First off, the opening theme sounded good, and it showed scenes with mechas fighting as well as just people fighting. So, we start off at a school of some sort, but it’s a futuristic kind of school. A teacher is starting a training exercise with a group of students, and they are charged with getting “attack points” on her before she is able to reach her destination. The teacher mentions Toori Aoi, the Section Representative, who is not at the class and describes him as useless despite his position. We sort of get an idea of the individual abilities of the students as they work together to try to beat their teacher (it’s really hard to keep track, though…I’m assuming they’ll each be the focus of future episodes or such). None of the students manage to get a hit on the instructor before she reaches her goal. At the goal, they find a Magician Demon (whatever that is), which attacks the instructor. She easily dispatches it, though. At that point, Toori, the Section Representative shows up with an eroge (…what?). He offers to let her play it, which pisses her off, and then gropes her (>.> what’s going on?). He goes on about confessing and some Horizon…yeah…I didn’t quite follow it. This show looks interesting…for some reason.
