Shingeki no Bahamut: Genesis Ep. 11: Kaisar falls… a lot

Shingeki no Bahamut - Genesis - 1101

Well, this is a pretty action-packed episode. There isn’t much to chew on. though. As such, I’ll just make this quick.

Shingeki no Bahamut - Genesis - 1107

No silly outfit for Demon Favaro, I see. The double standards!

Shingeki no Bahamut - Genesis - 1108

I never realized how big Beelzebub really was until now. Well, good for him.

Shingeki no Bahamut - Genesis - 1109

Jeanne shows up to stab a few angels. I guess angels can die. Michael says later that his physical form may disappear, but that his spirit will always be with Jeanne. Even so, a death is a death. If someone like Michael can bite the dust, however, I wonder why Azazel is so goddamn resilient.

These poor fools appear in the story just to get blown up. No clue who or what they are.

That’s an insanely strong rope. A knight in shining armor has to weigh over 200 pounds, right?

Shingeki no Bahamut - Genesis - 1112

That’s an insanely strong everything.

Shingeki no Bahamut - Genesis - 1113

I’m still not quite clear what Beelzebub intends to do. How is he going to rule the world with Bahamut? Isn’t Bahamut just going to wreck his ass along with the rest of the world?

Luckily for Kaisar, he runs into some allies. Unfortunately, his salvation is short-lived as the carriage gets jostled, and he finds himself falling once again. The dude is constantly falling in this episode. He does manage to get an all-important item from the zombie girl before he departed her company, though. Rita has concocted two antidotes for Martinet’s victims. She hands one to Kaisar, then intends to use the remaining one on Jeanne.

These scenes are pretty fun, though. I mean, just look at that screenshot. Bacchus is riding Hamsa like a skateboard!

Shingeki no Bahamut - Genesis - 1102

I don’t know why Michael felt the need to put the antidote in his own mouth, then kiss Jeanne in order to administer the medicine. Couldn’t he have just put the pill directly into her mouth to begin with? Oh well, how else would we get one hot anime babe to kiss an androgynous looking angel onscreen, eh? So does that mean Kaisar’s going to give Favaro the medicine in the same way? I mean, it’s only fair.

So after saving Kaisar, Azazel faces off against Beelzebub. Y’know, I can’t help but wonder what Lucifer is up to. Hell, throw in Gabriel, too. These are the respective leaders on both sides, right? And yet, they’re nowhere to be found at such a pivotal moment in the story. Oh well, there’s still one episode left, but you’d figure that these leaders would’ve at least made their move by now…

Favaro and Kaisar find themselves facing off yet again…

Shingeki no Bahamut - Genesis - 1104

…but Kaisar just shoots his childhood friend in the chest. Yo, what happened to the antidote?! And Amira finally shows up, but she doesn’t have much to contribute in this week’s episode. I guess she’s saving everything for the last episode.

Shingeki no Bahamut - Genesis - 1117

Golden tendrils reach out from Bahamut to absorb Amira and thus the Transcendent Key…

Shingeki no Bahamut - Genesis - 1118

…but this part looks pretty bad, though. Amira’s cel is literally just dragged off frame.

Shingeki no Bahamut - Genesis - 1106

Lavalley then shows up out of nowhere, but just as we expected, he’s a traitor.

Shingeki no Bahamut - Genesis - 1119

So poor Kaisar finds himself falling for the billionth time. If he was scared of heights before this episode, today’s exposure therapy should hopefully have that cured.

Shingeki no Bahamut - Genesis - 1105

Cerberus has been relegated to the background… just in case you’re wondering what’s she’s been up to.

Shingeki no Bahamut - Genesis - 1120

Just as Amira disappears into Bahamut, she utters Favaro’s name one last time. Welp, we’ve seen our heroes get kicked around long enough. Time for Favaro to somehow save the day in next week’s finale.

All in all, this was a pretty enjoyable episode to watch, but it had nothing memorable to it either. I’m pretty sure I had fun with this series, but  I’m also ready to close the book on it for good. The story’s pretty much run its course, and it’s better that I don’t get tired with these characters. As for the animation, it wasn’t stellar, but it wasn’t laughably bad either. There was just that one moment with Amira that made me laugh out loud.

  1. In a single day, Kaisar has broken the record for Consecutive Freefall. Congratulations.

    “That’s an insanely strong rope. A knight in shining armor has to weigh over 200 pounds, right?”

    Not necessarily, people often overestimate the weight of Plate Armor…but how heavy is Kaisar? I say, its should be “That’s an insanely strong palms” Imagine the ropeburn.

    “That’s an insanely strong everything.”

    Oh yes.

  2. “No silly outfit for Demon Favaro, I see. The double standards!”
    B-but his afro horns were very hilarious XD

    Finally I managed to watch this episode… very busy week indeed.
    This was a fun episode, but I wonder why Kaisar didn’t use the antidote on Favaro, maybe he sensed that Favaro was acting and he somehow chose to be a demon, who knows.
    Haha was pretty weird to see Cerberus reduced to just a background character… what happened? her seiyuu died or something?
