Code:Realize: Sousei no Himegimi Episode 2: A new guy

In a few ways, I felt like this second episode somewhat nullified a lot of the mystery from the first episode. The crazy guy in the shadows was revealed as the leader of Twilight, the guys trying to burn the city down. That wasn't exactly a shocking revelation. Still, the show's been fun to watch. I'm not particularly put off by it yet.

Cardia's poison is also pretty easily explained as a byproduct of the Horologium. Granted, there weren't many other places that development could go. Still, the fact that the Horologium replaces her heart could have some interesting implications about how she's treated as a human.

Particularly, it would be relevant to whether she's considered to be alive. Personally, I say that human death is associated with the brain, so she's fine.

Adding Van Hellsing to the main cast seemed a bit strange, but I guess he was in the opening. My real complaint was the scene at the beginning of the episode. It was basically a clip of something that happens later in the episode. I just couldn't figure out what it was adding to the episode. There's no real foreshadowing and the scene just eventually happens. Is it just a cheap misdirection related to Van Hellsing's allegiance swap at the end?

    Woo, finally had time for the episode. But yeah, it was a little strange that they answered some of the questions so quickly. Probably wanted to get all the interesting stuff out the way so they could just dive into full reverse harem antics. D:

    Nah, I'm liking this one so far. Hope it continues D:
