Satsuriku no Tenshi Episode 6: Well, that's something to go on


This week's episode was surprisingly okay. It seemed a bit rough in the beginning, but it at least made me feel like Rachel and Zack were making some progress. The series still lacks the intrigue of the first episode, but I'm getting to the point where I'm curious again. Well, I'm also glad that the math problems are done.

I would have liked a bit more from Zack's flashback. Randomly showing a slasher film on the TV to inspire him to stab the adults doesn't seem like much. I guess I can't expect too much from a kid.

Also, the timing of this flashback feels like it makes things awkward for no reason. I don't see why we couldn't have seen Zack kill the adults in the previous episode. And in this episode, it's hard to make the connection between Zack's bloodlust and the drugs from last week.

Oh hey...it's the scene where a character trips while running in a straight line away from the killer. I know that scene!

It's not particularly surprising that Cathy gets tricked, but I'm still having trouble with the fact that Zack has survived everything she's done to him.

What exactly is the point of giving Rachel an unloaded gun? It doesn't do anything from a narrative perspective except force Rachel to reveal her own gun. And from Cathy's perspective, it makes less sense because she would essentially be watching Rachel pull a trigger. Maybe she was hoping Rachel would agonize more, but she should know better after seeing Rachel's general lack of emotions.

Yay? At least the line from Rachel about no longer being tools was pretty good.

The fact that Rachel uses Zack's name tag to unlock the elevator is an interesting touch. I hope there's more to it. At face value, it could just mean that Rachel considers herself to be more of a sinner than Zack. She could also realize that she's lying to herself with her bystander attitude. There are some cool things that can be done with this.

Me too...
