Shana and Yoshida decide to confirm Yujiâ€™s feelings once and for all and have him choose definitely between the two of them.
Wowâ€¦..this was a big episode. It didnâ€™t seem like it at first considering the slow pace they had with relatively no action especially compared to the action packed episodes we just recently had but really taking a look at everything that happened it adds up to A LOT. First off they showed Sabrac is still aliveâ€¦.somehowâ€¦.that was a big shocker. We have Satouâ€™s continuing story about joining Outlaw and how heâ€™s pretty much confirmed to try and join even doing something involving his father which seems like a big deal for him. We have Ikeâ€™s confession to Yoshida. There was a hint at some kind of romance back-story for Wilhelmina. We have of course the big love triangle decision between Yuji, Shana, and Yoshida. Then Hecateâ€™s appearance at the end. It was pretty damn big. The scene with Hecate at the end nearly made me loose it. SHE COULDNâ€™T WAIT 10 FUCKING MINUTES FOR HIM TO CHOOSE!?!? DAMNIT! Iâ€™m a big BIG supporter of romance in series and the fact that something this big was about to happen made me giddy but of course it couldnâ€™t have just gone on like normal. It would have been a big enough event by itself for him to make that kind of definite decision but NOOOOO thatâ€™s too damn simple! God damn Hecateâ€¦â€¦â€¦.
I have to mention pretty much separately that this episode had one of the funniest Shana moments in the entire series. When Shana demanded like it was no big deal that she be thought how to make babies I just lost it. I burst into laughter. Iâ€™m not talking about the silent little chuckle or a continual silent laughter where you laugh but make no noise, I was extremely loudly laughing my ass off for several minutes. Asking not only Yoshida but asking it in front of Yuji and his parents was absolute awesomeness and hilarity.
My primary concern now is their time management. With only four episodes left in this season/series itâ€™s obvious they wonâ€™t be able to explain everything. Even considering they would group things together they have Hecateâ€™s appearance and the removable of the Reiji Maigo which could be connected to the Silver appearing they still have to not only defeat the Silver or fight it which would be a huge feat itself they have all the members of B al Masque to fight. I just donâ€™tâ€™ see them fighting and concluding a battle with The Silver, Triclops girl, Metamorphous, and Hecate in four episodes while still just dealing with them explaining the plan going on, getting the Reiji Maigo back, and putting some kind of closure to the romance and the issue of immortality that Yuji and Shana have compared to the human world. My only hope is they have a third season. Hopefully they have no anime original ending and just stop it here. I think the best case scenario is they conclude this individual fight, get the Reiji Maigo back, and then end the season. Iâ€™m not sure if they can conclude the romance. Part of me hopes so but the other doesnâ€™t as it would leave the third season with potentially less. Hell, I donâ€™t even think they will defeat any of Bal Masque, bearing a third season is coming, as it seems odd to defeat one member and if any of them is more separate form the group dynamic itâ€™s the Silver which seems to be their ultimate weapon and seems odd it would be defeated here and still leave Bal Masque for another season by themselves effectively weaker.
