The SSS travel to the Guild, but must fight through anti-angel traps.
Damn this series has some hilarious moments. I just loved Noda getting owned by another trap. It’s terrible since he must be in horrible pain, but it’s too damn funny to stop laughing at. Like how they started to play a slow tune to make it dramatic then speeding to him flying into a wall.
Love the traps they had set up in that place. Was just listing off the movie based traps they were working with. The rolling ball was close enough to Indiana Jones. The laser trap was obviously based on Resident Evil. I guess with the explanation from where the weapons come from it makes sense. They just coped what they knew from the movies and put them into action. Though seriously who the heck put together the puppy floating down a river trap? Seriously how many idiots would fall for that?
I didn’t think we’d get Yuri’s past this quickly. Still it was nice for them to enlighten us at least partially about what happened. They didn’t say how she died, but suicide was certainly probable. She denied it a bit too strongly. If not then it was weird to say that no one is there that committed suicide. With so many ways to die in this world wouldn’t it be probable that someone who did it was there? Plus we don’t know about Otonashi’s death so he’s still a question mark. Perhaps that denial is just a rule that was decided and all of them actually killed themselves.
Yuriâ€™s past really was a terrible one to think about. Plus what kind of moronic robbers were they? You smash the TV? If their family is well off that should be a damn nice TV. Steal the TV who psychopaths! Being in that situation would be worse than words can describe. It’s understandable why she is so angry. Plus she asks a question many have asked for a long time. If God exists why would he let something like that happen? Obviously the clearest ones to hate and blame are the robbers. But they are clearly out of her reach right now. So she’s fighting against what is closest.
It still leaves the question as to Angel’s motivation. This time her actions were more offence than defense. You could say that arms manufacturing is pretty criminal and necessary to put down. Still it seems odd that she just decided to go and attack now. Plus I don’t get the reasoning behind her being there and her actions. If she has that much power why stop? It’s not like she can’t identify who she is fighting. Plus if God is behind her why not send out a few more and settle things? There has to be a reason why this is being done. It’s tough to figure out since Angel gives no reactions. She fights, responds to the threats that are thrown at her, and just keeps coming. Kind of like a cute terminator. Plus I can’t see how the SSS can win. If she can survive that kind of fall then what the heck is supposed to stop her? Isn’t this just going to turn into an eternal struggle?
This was a pretty dramatic yet comical episode. Yet they managed to fit in some developments between Otonashi and Yuri. Hearing her story and the interesting close-up when he was climbing back up was pretty good. The series has given us some information, but a lot remains in the dark. We learned where the weapons come from and why Yuri is so determined. I’m curious about what we’ll end up finding out next.
Now that was a really nice OP. As is common with this series the production value was right up there. Visually it was a great looking OP that managed to get the characters introduced so we can try to remember who everyone is. Besides having Angel playing the piano portion of the song was a nice thing in terms of visuals and sound. Itâ€™s nice to fit in the characters into what is being played. It makes me think about Angel’s role in all of this. To me it seems weird for the ‘antagonist’ to be playing a piece like that. Still it was nice right at the end since you could see visible ‘angel’ wings on her.
