Jormungand 12

Jormungand

Well, that guy got offed really quick. Off-screen too, wtf?

Gotta just love Valmet’s reaction when Koko says she’s mad.

Jormungand

Heh, she’s lucky she’s working for Koko.

I did expect quite a bit more from Jormungand compared to the manga, but for better or for worse, the production team decided to stick almost 100% to the manga. Even down to the character designs, albeit actually a bit uglier than the manga. While I won’t say it was a bad show, it didn’t really win me over either. It definitely had the potential at first but in the end, it boils down to execution.

Of course, the second season of Jormungand is coming soon as well (Fall), where we should see the rest of the manga covered. It really isn’t a long one, after all. Based on what I’ve read, just be prepared for the same stuff as this season, only with slightly longer arcs (maybe three episodes this time!).

    Death flags galore and all avoided (well, the retired badass Chen didnt make it…): Ugo, Lehm, the restaurant killers and BOTH Valmet and Karen.
    Speaking of that last pair I’m wondering why Karen after such fierce attempt at ending Valmet’s life departed without any violence. Is she over it or wants to confront Valmet again as an equal in combat in the future? Who knows…
    In the action departament, we do get a whole can of badass unleashed by Valmet on poor PRC guards… Lehm and Ugo being brutally effective in hand-to-hand combat.
    But the best damn thing in the whole episode was Koko using the door to smash girl assassin (complete with cartoonish “flat person against the flat surface shot” and doing Bruce Lee pose afterwards).
    Last but not least we are treated to a “day in a life of CIA top brass”, and reveal the mole in the Koko’s group, leaving us salivating for a next season of “exquisite force of evil”…
