These past few weeks, I’ve been letting my personal frustrations with this series’s storytelling get in the way of the things I genuinely do enjoy about it. Episode 10 felt like a breath of fresh air in many ways, going back to basics (for the most part) and focusing on the bits of the show I like rather than the parts that make me act like an idiot.
I felt that this episode of Fire Force was really its best opportunity to give its characters some time to breathe and grow, but it ends up bundling that in favour of adding a few more convoluted plot contrivances. Fire Force really is becoming a prime example of form over function in a series, with it’s character being the main casualty of this approach.
This week sees the conclusion of this mini arc featuring Tamayo and Yushiro; who have shown us that Nezuko isn’t the only demon out there that isn’t a monstrous engine of murder, well not when it comes to humans anyway.
