Drifters Episode 2: Brutal...


This episode was a lot of action, which is cool, but I'm still struggling to figure out what kind of show I'm watching. It feels like there's hope, though...there's some kind of Drifters vs. Ends thing going on, so I'm curious enough to learn more. Plus, this show has my favorite opening song so far in the season, so I'm kinda stuck watching it. Man, that song was too good...

I'm just taking a wild guess here, but based on the last scene in the episode, I'm thinking the Ends might be of a similar nature to the Drifters, but somehow undead. Like...they're zombie forms of dead heroes from history. But I'm really just guessing.

I can't tell if this scene is supposed to be a comedic distraction for the history buffs (I guess one of these two is Hannibal?) or some insight into the motives of the Octoberists. I'm trying to figure out whether they're tasked with watching the Drifters or some organization that's actively rebelling.

When I first saw this, I thought Toyohisa ran out as a reaction to hearing that the elves saved him, indicating that he immediately jumps to save those who helped him or whatever. Instead, he's just headstrong and battle hungry, which I guess is also fine.

Casual racism.

Yeah! Diplomacy, I guess?

Making bows?

Oops.

Yeesh...

Aww man...Yoichi is like the most interesting character. Why are all of his killings done off-screen?

Really pushing the "light vs. dark" motif here, huh?

Gasp! She changed the newspaper!

    It is a corker of an opening theme! I can't find much else to get enthused about with the show, though. The animation and the narrative are both all over the place and I'm pretty tired of Oda Nobunaga turning up almost every season. That said, I'll probably give it another few episodes just to be sure.

    i also get the sense that i was supposed to be a history guy while watching it...either that or a fan of mindless violence (which...now that i say it...). but holy crap that op
