Angolmois - Genkou Kassenki Episode 10: Looking pretty rough


I feel like I'm having a lot of trouble following the character motivations in this series, but the episode was enjoyable overall. Some characters are quite clear, like the lovestruck Amushi, but I can't figure out the Magistrate at all. Also, the episode ends on a bit of a weird clffhanger, but I guess things are about to go way south.

I'm not sure what to make of Shiraishi. He just kind of...ended. His final words about doing things for the sake of clan also feel like a hollow way to explain himself.

Introducing this kid again is a little weird, but I have to admit that it's a funny way to advance Teruhi's love side story.

The hidden yandere has appeared!

This is a fairly small scene, but I still think the idea of using animal behavior to read the enemy is pretty interesting.

I'm not sure what to make of the Magistrate in these scenes. It seems like he's simply lying to his troops about the omens to keep their morale high, but I'm having the hardest time figuring out whether he truly believes what he's saying or not.

Onitakemaru's motivations feel a lot clearer now, and they seem reasonable. I also don't really mind that the incoming Mongol forces make him turn back around. I just don't like the way the cliffhanger in this episode is handled.

Before the credits roll, everything is great. Everyone's hopes go up as they spot the incoming ships, but Onitakemaru's grim expression makes it clear that the ships aren't their salvation. Beating the revelation in after the credits just feels excessive.
