Yuji and Wilhelmina face off against Sabrac after Shana is blasted away from the fight.
This episode was great. It pretty much consisted of one long extremely interesting and exciting fight which by itself is pretty cool. It really made things serious as it wasnâ€™t a fight that the good guys were easily winning, they seem pretty screwed. I have to say for a bit that Sabrac is just freaking awesome. He kicks ass. Heâ€™s one of the coolest bad guys, no, THE coolest bad guy Iâ€™ve seen in Shana so far. He just looks cool first of all but heâ€™s also pretty good at kicking ass. So far they havenâ€™t really landed a hit on him. Plus his unique ability seems like it really would be one of the best abilities to have in a fight. To have any wound inflected not heal for the duration of a fight and actually get worse. Hell you could kill someone by scratching them and waiting an hour.
I am curious as to what this weird feeling Yuji is getting. At first I thought it was just him detecting Sabrac which it might partially be. If so thatâ€™s pretty big by itself as Wilhelm said no one can detect him. If Yuji can thatâ€™s a pretty big thing. However, even when he knew where Sabrac was he seemed to feel something weird coming from the hole of the explosion. Perhaps that will be a key to defeating him. Hell, maybe he is detecting Sabrac and the ones fighting are some kind of clones, which would explain him not taking any damage. Either way they didnâ€™t really explain that, they just shrouded it in mystery with Yuji for some reason finding something odd. Hopefully theyâ€™ll expand on that, which is likely because as it stands now they arenâ€™t doing crap to Sabrac.
Iâ€™ve said this before but Iâ€™m going to have to say it again as it became even more apparent after this episode. They do not have enough episodes to finish this in this season. They are either going to have to make a third season or just leave things unconcluded, the latter which would really suck. They have a bout six episodes left and the next one at least seems like it will deal entirely with Sabrac. Thatâ€™s ok too because as Iâ€™ve expressed above I think he is immensely cool but that also means that after the Sabrac arc there will be five maybe four episodes left and that is not enough to conclude all of Bal Masque including Margeryâ€™s vendetta on Metamorphous, the triclopes and Wilhelm, Yoshida and the Pheles thing, any romance between Shana and Yuji, Hecate, and the Silver. There is just way too much to try and pack into those episodes that it pretty much guarantees this season wonâ€™t conclude anything. I can only hope for them to make another.
