Double Decker! Doug and Kirill Episode 5: The final boss appears?


Huh...I guess the show finally decided to introduce its overarching story. We finally get a recurring antagonist in Esperanza, and the personal connection to Doug to drive it forward. That being said, this episode was still pretty funny. The introduction of a powerful enemy who doesn't use Anthem also makes things interesting. The show clearly isn't taking itself too seriously, and I think that's great. The big reveal about Zabel was really obvious, but it wasn't that bad to watch.

I thought this scene was great, completely skipping the meeting of Kirill and Derick. Normally, I'd have a problem with skipping stuff, but this scene really plays well into the tone of the show.

I've been meaning to ask for a while, but where is this show supposed to be set? Visually, pretty much everything points to London. The cars drive on the left and the red double decker buses are pretty iconic. But Kirill uses American one-dollar bills in the first episode, so I don't know what to feel.

When I first saw this, I was honestly wondering if Zabel cut off his own foot to mislead everyone. I figured his limp should be relevant to the case, but I guess it was something else.

Kirill was hilarious in this episode. I liked watching him call everyone out for jinxing the situation with common anime lines. It's an interesting reversal when Kirill happens to be the voice of reason.

I'm soooooo shocked...

And with this, the series finally has a goal line. I'm happy to see that.

I honestly don't understand the significance of this final scene. It felt like it was heavily rushed, and probably should have explained more. I personally think it would have been cool if the show revealed that Esperanza actually reverses the alphabet when determining their command structure, but the assassination of A still feels like it's supposed to be important. I'm not so sure.
