kristensk: smirk (ane rin smirk)
[personal profile] kristensk
The animated Kyoto/Impure King Arc has started, and it's amazing! Okay, so it's a slow start, but it's nice to see that, with only twelve episodes, they're not rushing. Episode 2 was nothing but character establishment and development, and it gave me all the feels. Special love for the hilarity of Rin's drunken conversation with a panicked Shima.

Also, I can't help wondering if even the official subtitlers are making jokes about how Takara is always just there without contributing anything. (At least, not until much later anyway.) Because when Shura divides the kids up in episode 2, she clearly says his name... but it's not in the subtitles. I laughed at that probably more than I should have.

Simultaneously, the manga has been dropping bombshell after bombshell about the Order's past activities and the origins of the demon kings... while dropping only hints toward the answers we're all waiting for regarding the Okumura twins' birth. Evil, clever Kato.


As to the revelations... I don't know how I feel! I'm simultaneously excited by the revelations and possibilities and then a bit disappointed that so many of my headcanons and fanfic ideas have been scuppered. Of course, that's always a risk with ongoing series, and now I have new possibilities...

Mostly, I can't wait to see the reveal of all the hints Kato's dropped. Was Shiro the clone of a demon king? Is Angel a Lucifer clone? (Drawn characters are tricky, but if you compare his profile to Lucifer's in Volume 16's character list, there are distinct similarities.) And, the Okumuras! Was their birth even more unnatural than the obvious? Or is that the twist? That with all the experimentation, Rin and Yukio are the exceptions who were born the usual way? And, what on earth is the secret Shiemi's mother had to tell her? Is she a clone too?! ...Maybe I should be asking who isn't a demon king clone...

And, all the AnE joy lately has inspired icons:

...If you want me, I'll just be over here in the back of the room, with the first anime and my own little post-series world. Again. ;Þ

(*is thinking she should probably try to find a nice poster or something with Yukio, for Johnny Young Bosch to sign at Triad*)
