And another open ending for this season.
I have to give credit though, this episode had quite some gruesome scenes. From Alice’s clone getting drilled to death to Iincho’s kidney massage, I admit I cringed quite a bit watching this episode. Then there was the random Jouji Nakata character appearing to save Alice for another day’s fight, plus hints of deeper and more dangerous things lying around for the rest of the cast, this really wasn’t much of an ending than a temporary parting isn’t it?
Still, Justice Maid Kamen was hillarious.
I’m not so sure about the prospects of a second season, but I guess this show defied my initial expectations and turned out to be another decent show, although I have to say the middle arc and the ending arc could have done better. Shiraho and Sovereignty didn’t really play much of a role after their arcs and the Family kinda turned out to be rather sickening types too, but they really lacked flair. Not to mention everyone seems to have forgotten about the anti-Waas knight organization too. Hurr.
Oh well, it was fun while it lasted. Plus it gave us a pretty decent set of opening and ending themes, so that’s a lot better than I can say for a lot of other shows. Plus, Iincho too!
