I think this show is actually starting to get its teeth into me now. I had this feeling from the beginning that this was going to be one of those series that pushes all of my shonen hype buttons just right. It was always just a matter of if its characters and its story would be able to match up the its impressive animation.
With this 7th episode, I’d certainly say that it’s getting there nicely.
After thinking about it some more, episode five last week actually left me kinda wanting. While it did give us a phenomenal fight scene between Sukune and Fushiguro, I still felt like the show was going a touch too fast and leaving me in the dark a little when it came to the state of the world. Episode 6 is the first one that seems to settle down a bit and start to really let this world and its characters sink in a bit.
We’re at the early stages of this series still; where it has me on the hook, but I’m still trying to feel out whether it’s got the strength to reel me in or not. At this point, I’m certainly on board for the show’s stellar fight animation and the ever loveable charm of a good-hearted doofus protag. But for it to keep my attention it needs to really make me care.
