Cross arrives to finish off the Level 4 with the help of Allen and Lenalee.
I thought this episode was pretty good. The first half of this episode was pretty much all about finishing off the Level 4, while the second was them recovering from all that has happened. The fight was very fun to watch. Cross really just kicked ass. I loved the part where the Level 4 repelled the bullet; acting like he was so powerful this couldnâ€™t possibly stop him and Cross just smiled and asked if he only saw one shot. Heâ€™s definitely one powerful guy if he can almost effortlessly take down the Level 4, when everyone else struggled so much.
Iâ€™m a bit disappointed that it is over with this, with so much more of the story still to come. It seems just as things were getting interesting, just as they added this plot of maybe things not being what they seem, they end it. However, it is understandable since they donâ€™t want to have to do filler episodes, and they are kind of caught up with the manga. Iâ€™m not sure if they are planning another season when the manga goes further, but especially if they donâ€™t Iâ€™m definitely going to read the manga because I desperately want to know what happens. Things like the Earl keeping the order around, the deal with Allen and the 14th, and so much more still has to be answered.
Wowâ€¦.what a long experience this has been. This has been the longest series Iâ€™ve blogged, and the longest series Iâ€™ve ever watched with only seeing one episode per week, and not seeing hundreds throughout a week. It has certainly been a very interesting experience. Itâ€™s hard to think that itâ€™s over now. Looking back I remember the first episode about some kid with a gigantic hand fighting huge balloons lead by a fat clown. It certainly turned out different then I thought, way better then I thought. Everything has come a long way. Allen has changed from having a simple giant hand to having a powerful claw, a giant sword that cuts only certain things, and the ability to move almost anywhere with his cloak and mask, plus the ability to play a piano and move a gigantic enemy weapon for his own use. Not to mention the general shifting to a much darker setting and introduction of actual plot instead of just kill this random Akuma for the week. It was way more then I ever expected.
Thereâ€™s not much else to say about the show. Although I enjoyed it very much, itâ€™s still pretty much just a typical shounen series. There wasnâ€™t much unique about it. For the most part the show kept to a pretty typical shounen pattern. Enemy gets strong, an exorcist gets stronger, then the enemy gets stronger and an exorcist becomes stronger, and so on, a continuous cycle of one side whooping the other sideâ€™s ass, then some change and the balance shifts. Still, as long as you donâ€™t expect it to be much else then a shounen show, it was pretty good.
