I repeat. There is under no circumstances that a green haired neko mimi Kotono deserved to be slapped by anyone. This is the same case even if you have been taking care of her for the past few years after she is abandoned. Might you be cursed, hexed and hurt gratuitously for conducting such a sinful act.
All right, it seems that I will be actually continuing with this series, considering that I have some free time on my hands and the lure of Kotono makes me keen on watching this too. So, I will move on and blog on this.
We started with a young Kotono who was seen to be abandoned and was eventually picked up by Yoshua. It was a dream and we found Kotono and Natsumi in the classroom, where Kotono had a tear in her eyes. She then wondered what happened to make her dream of it, and Natsumi said it was probably all right for her to rest since she had a very long day yesterday. We then see Kotono and Natsumi talking about finding Yohan’s parents and Natsumi said that Yoshua had brought Yohan to the police with no success. Natsumi also added that there were no parents in the world that did not care about their children and Yohan would find his parents soon.
Koshiro was then watching television to see a really busty blonde doing some advertising. Yoshua then said that the figure of the actress was 85, 58, 91 and that she had fake breasts as he explained in great detail to Yohan about fake breasts and what they were. Koshiro then said that Yoshua was trying to input dirty and corrupted information into the innocent mind of Yohan. When Kotono and Natsumi came back, Yoshua turned 180 degrees and stated that Koshiro said it was all right for adults to lie to children, making the two girls annoyed at him again.
In the headquarters of the antagonists, they reported the failure of the masked magician and the girl under the president’s charge was given one last chance to find the boy. Koshiro then reported that the police had no cases of missing children, while Yohan could remember nothing of his past. Eventually, they brought him back to the house as they enjoyed a good dinner. Kotono also acted like a big sister to Yohan, before Yohan called Yoshua uncle as he reiterated that he was only 27. The stupid chick also repeated that he was old as Yoshua asked Yohan whether he liked fried little chicken. Yohan was tired as he went to sleep after a while. Yoshua warned Kotono not to be so attached to Yohan as the separation will be more painful when they found his parents. However, Kotono said that Yohan was like her, where her parents completely abandoned her and had no one to support her.
In the headquarters, Felena came in 5 minutes late and she explained that she had too many advertisements and commitments. Felena was then instructed to capture Yohan and she was given an incentive to do it by starring in a serial drama if she was to succeed. The supervisor also sarcastically said that there were no fans to swarm her as she threw this hanging bandaged man out of the window (don’t even ask me what the bandaged man is).
Kotono then left for school as she was late as we saw Felena trying to find out information about children. The people she asked started to get suspicious, thinking that she was in cahoots with the previous child kidnapper until she revealed herself. That caused a greater mess as they thought that she was finding her illegitimate child. Felena then sensed a feeling as she found out where Yohan was. Yoshua was making cake as Yohan went back to play, only to meet with Felena, who Yohan recognized as the fake breast person, calling her a “fake breast person!”. Yoshua came out and threw the cake at the girl, with the stupid chick flying off to tell Kotono about it. Felena then transformed using the “Lovers” tarot card, turning to a thorny S&M person. Kotono arrived just in time to stop Felena. However, while Kotono was discussing where Felena was, a thorn appeared as Felena grabbed Yohan and flew away.
Kotono gave chase inspite of Yoshua’s calls that it was too dangerous and finally unleashed her justice card. She then cast Black Melton ribbon to grab the flying Felena and eventually defeated her with a judgment last attack. As the rest of the people got to Kotono, Yoshua gave Kotono a very tight slap and told her that even though Kotono was keen to protect Yohan, she had to remember that Yoshua felt the same way about protecting her and running off that way was extremely dangerous. Kotono was apologetic and Yohan mouthed out that Kotono had the power of Judgment. That was the same thing Felena said when she returned to the evil guys HQ, saying that no one told her that she was facing judgment and she could care less about getting a slot in the drama series anymore. The badly-dressed president also said that the guardian of the boy (Kotono) had the power to cleanse all evilness as they realized that the situation was not as easy as it seemed now.
Ok, after two episodes, Saint October continues with its ridiculous mix of rubbish, junk and crap, yet somehow entertains as well. Kotono is an extremely likable character, which holds the show up for what seems to be a rather average show at the very least. Graphical levels dropped slightly at various frames of the episode, and I do hope that the quality level does not drop further and becomes too prominent because it will be rather disappointing.
The villain of the episode is this S&M mistress that has fake breasts. Yes, you heard me right as the screenshots that I have taken should show you just as much. I was seriously chided when she actually stooped down to the level of Yohan, trying to convince the little kid about her breasts. What? That was honestly ridiculous and in a way, it is so dumb that it becomes rather hilarious how much of a bimbo this person is.
I do not know why but I actually like the transformation of Kotono. Somehow, the dark black ink and the ink flowing down her face and her body is somewhat cool, very different from the usual style of mahou shoujo that we are used to. No sparkling stars, no nudity (ya, you sexual fiends, burn burn!) and no ribbons sparkling too. I do not mind a slight change if anything.
The villains of this show also do not feel like well, villains. There is in fact a fourth wall when the president said that they did not look good enough with villains and wanted to have a black cat that will look more like a villain, which makes me laugh because they are dressed as really gay costumes while saying it. It is perhaps this bit of silliness in the whole show that makes it a good watch.
One more thing is when the new and third character will actually enter. I hope they introduce her soon by next week or the likes because I find her to be a rather different character compared to the rest, with that cynical look in her face. Natsumi lacks character and is way too generic by all means. It is a tad boring too, since Kotono is somewhat similar as well, except for the fact that she’s a green haired neko mimi loli. That adds around +5 on the Impz’s scale of greatness lolis.
So ya, til next week.
