(oops, I almost forgot my goal to write more)

Well, that was disappointing, I can only hope the movie will be better. The shift of writer between each season is hard to miss; it went from a well-rounded likable cast discovering the true meaning of  »dystopy » to a huge cast with one note quirk struggling with ~mystery~ who eventually resetted itself.

Saiga goes back to jail. Shyguy is still shy and almost a prop (no focus on him as a character and no flashback), same for Shion and Yayoi. Sybil goes back to their business. Maybe the  »relationship » between Mika and Togane was supposed to mirror the Akane/Kogami pair, like  »let’s present two character and how they would be if they were darker » and the huge contrast. After all, at first, Akane was also a rookie once, but her character grew and became resilient while Mika couldn’t handle the truth behind Sybil and snapped. Togane and Kogami were both Enforcer (but one is a huge bag of clown and the other was a great character) who changed a but their Inspector. That parallel was just awkwardly handled, since Mika was never a likable character and quickly went stale. It screamed:  »now that we have established that Akane could’ve been a rookie like that, what should we do with Mika? She will be jealous and petty and… jealous and petty and… that’s all? Let’s think about that later ».

At first, I was a tad disappointed with the lack of Kogami in that sequel. Now I’m happy, his character didn’t became a feeble replica of himself like the Ginoza of the sequel and the original one. Maybe in the movie…

And if this is the case, for once, a movie will have a better continuity with the  »canon » than a TV sequel who basically choose the statu quo route. Usually it’s the other way, like FMA and the movie who is a stand-alone forgettable thing and it’s almost funny.

Since it was a slow episode I have not much to add. Su-won plan his coronation and there is hints of shadiness from the Fire Tribe and that guy who was rejected by Yona. Hak and Yona reach the Wind Tribe where she has the chance to breathes a bit and recover-deal with what happened while Hak plans to leave her behind in safety. (suite…)

The pace slowed down this week but after the flashy first episode, it’s time for Akane to think logically about this case and to seach more clues, even if other character question her sanity. (suite…)

With screenshot like that, it’s hard to not make bad penis jokes and call him Shinichi Penishand. Once that said, I can go on more serious stuff. (suite…)

I’m pleasantly surprised with how it’s going. Maybe I’m too used to generic fantasy shoujo with a reverse harem and I have low expectation because of that. Reverse harem are usually like this: first episode for setting the plot and presenting each love interest and episode after are all about bishies gathering and MC spending time with Bishie of the week to eventually unravel a dark secret~ and heal him with her Mary Stuness. When it’s corny and aware of that like Uta prince-same, it’s marvelous, but it’s usually bland and forgettable like Amnesia (heh) and try to hard to do drama. Luckily, for now, Yona isn’t like this.
