Episode 8:Hagormo Gitsune’s Kyoto Invasion
Sup Minna~ How is your week? Well things are really busy at my side with film school. Lots of practical work and stuff. So you seen how crazy life is now but I am still alive y’all.
As seen in this ‘Duh’ title-there is some trouble between the Keikans and The Kyoto baddies, with Hidemoto’s seals being broken by her commandoes and of course some killings too. So there is a storm coming up *insert evil laugh* Meanwhile on the other side Rikuo has done ‘be a man’ training and yes he leaves Toono for Kyoto *woot*
To be frank-I am not too crazy about that part of that manga ..so I would not into tht much detail of it. Basically it’s just Hagoromo’s bringing up seals like a boss and i find her voice very creepy-is it a good thing or not? Well Norikio-san just creep me out and oh I hate that 3D skeleton dude,does it look out of place don’t cha think?
I think they overdid Rihan’s death flashback a little too much (agonizing much for me) but I really like the ending a lot especially the ink-stroke thing that remind me fondly of that particular manga page :3
Overall in all,a quick summary of it
Good-Great pacing and Hagoromo is pretty creepy.Period.Love the animations
Bad-Sorry if I spoil your joy…I really hate the overdose of Rihan’s death flashbacks and specially the trippy scene of little girl!Hagoromo just pull me off. Can you please stop agonizing me man?? and I hate how sometimes it looks out of place in animation-wise especially the skeleton guy. Perhaps make it 2D please.
Rating-3 stars,A so-so episode for me cuz of my not-so-eager-of-this-arc mode,perhaps too much Rihan’s death flashback in 50% of the episode kinda pull me off and yes Hagoromo is pretty creepy.Period. Oh well-I would see moar action from the Nura clan. Can’t wait anyway for Epi 9
So sorry for a quick review..things have been busy..so please bear with me ok?
BTW the omake sounds a little wrong to me cuz boobs as weapons is a little bit creepy
