Well, this is a pretty action-packed episode. There isn’t much to chew on. though. As such, I’ll just make this quick.
No silly outfit for Demon Favaro, I see. The double standards!
I never realized how big Beelzebub really was until now. Well, good for him.
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?
That’s an insanely strong everything.
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!
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…
…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.
Golden tendrils reach out from Bahamut to absorb Amira and thus the Transcendent Key…
…but this part looks pretty bad, though. Amira’s cel is literally just dragged off frame.
Lavalley then shows up out of nowhere, but just as we expected, he’s a traitor.
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.
Cerberus has been relegated to the background… just in case you’re wondering what’s she’s been up to.
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.
