Nabari no Ou 04: Ordered Mission


Hahaha fangirls! This one is for ME!

I continue to be impressed. This time it’s not by crazy fighting shenanigans, but by the subtleties in the story telling.

It’s hawt shiz! Hah! Did you think I was gonna go all serious and stuff? For those worried about the future of Nabari posts, never fear…I’ll continue to put out nice concise posts full of pictures for the fangirls. I’m too intrigued by this show and too fond of my bite-sized posts to do anything else.


Damn right, that’s sexy for ya right there…and no, I’m not talking about Miharu or Kouichi.

[OneLiner Summary]
In the aftermath of the attack on Fuma village, Miharu and the others brainstorm with Kotarou to find a way to remove the Shinrabanshou…or at least stop the Iga ninjas from getting it.

[Thoughts]
I was expecting this episode to be pretty boring, but I got a decent “recovery” episode instead. It looks like Miharu is coming out of his shell a little bit, even if he doesn’t notice it (would he have even said anything in front of all of those people before?). Finally I get multiple options for which female to root for, and currently Anti-Gravity Shirt chick is beating Tiny Moe Loli who is beating Raimei. Nothing like a nice WOMAN to stare at instead of some little girl drawn like she’s 20 even though the facts say she’s 13.


Obligatory Yoite Shot: I want YOU for the psychopathic ninja brigade. We knit on Thursdays.

The end of this episode is what really grabbed my attention and provoked a “finally, hell yes” from me. At the end of the episode, everyone is sitting around talking about plans when someone points out that their plan would make them no different than the Iga ninjas. Instead of going baby mode and offering some lame ass logic or trying to find another way, Kotarou basically says “Damn right…I never said what we’re doing would be just.” Thank you oh fellow lover of ladies…you finally take the pretty layers off of all the heroics and point out the bullshit that’s underneath it all. It’s time to man up, grow some balls, and kick some ass like a badass instead of a hero. Here’s hoping Nabari no Ou pulls it off well.


My sentiments exactly. Like how I did that ladies…more shots for me this week! Muahaha.

Highlight: The appearance of a chick with a rack, and Kotarou’s line at the end. Hands down.
Next Week: Looks like we end up back at school again…at least for a while. Raimei’s still swinging her sword around though.
Trivia: The name “Kotarou” makes me think of the little kid from Black Blood Brothers every time I hear it.

    love that shot of yoite. it feels as though he is miharu’s dark shadow or something… from the other side of the mirror(?)

    i wonder if there would indeed be someone later on to resist the power that’s been embedded in miharu’s body… or if he would be able to resist the proddings from the shinrabanshou itself

    thought you were gonna walk out on nabari no ou after reading that WTF bit… so, as i said… yay for me!

    This episode was waaayyyy too much ninja-ese talky and exposition and not enough trap factor or fighting. The woman with the loose clothing was alright though.

    (In other news, the episode was rather boring.)

    Hmm maybe I should take up knitting again…

    And since we girls have plenty of eye candy its only fair you boys get the same.

    After all now I have my Jin/Ishida type to drool over too. ^-^

    yah thanks for this ^^
    Those screen caps are great :P
    It came to me as a suprise when they were fighting as if it was ‘an eye for an eye’
    Yoite and Miharu and the sensei continue to be my favorite characters – hope the death count for major characters isn’t to great in this show XD

    @bamboowitch: Don’t think you have much to worry yet IF the anime follows the manga closely (which it does, relatively, if you compare to the other anime series).

    The main story is just about to start :)
