Kujo sees a movie with Avril and finds a man dying at his school.
As always Kujo’s lack of understanding of girls amazes. Of course Avril would come back earlier than planned. It’s a lot easier to have fun for the whole summer if you have a friend along than if you are by yourself. By leaving at the last minute he threw her entire plans into disarray. That kind of explanation should have been obvious to him at least. Of course an even more pressing reason was her not being able to stand Kujo being alone with Victorique while she was gone for the whole summer. Oh well, at least she got a date to the movies with him. Though he couldn’t stay awake during it….It’s times like this that I think Avril would be better off focusing on another guy. Victorique is the only one that should have to deal with a dense male lead like Kujo. Still have to give her credit for putting in so much effort. Fail points on Kujo though for napping during the movie and wanting to get away as soon as he could. Honestly he should just propose to Victorique already, he can’t leave her alone for 5 minutes.
Anyways the actual case wasn’t too bad. We have a very familiar face having been seen with the victim. This might be the first conflict between him and Victorique or it might just be a coincidence. The death does make me wonder about how he died. One of his fingers was looking purple though the rest of his hand looked ok. There really isn’t much to go with right now since he died suddenly and his only words were the name of the alchemist. You’d assume someone’s last words would be rather important so there must be some connection. Of course this series hasn’t shown supernatural sides to itself so I’m not betting on an alchemist that’s supposed to be dead being the killer. Of course it’s possible a descendent is doing the crime.
I did love Victorique getting upset about something written a long time ago. She really has some insane pride though I suppose with her intelligence that’s not unexpected.
Honestly I think the old ED is worlds better than this new ED. It’s not really bad, but the old was was just much better. It’s a nice song and the images are solid, but it doesn’t have the same appeal to it. Really the most positive part of this ED is seeing Victorique in an array of different outfits.
