I haven’t dropped it yet! Two weeks ago I was out of town for a few days, and last weekend I was studying for finals (plus the episode was dull) so I skipped them. I’ve also started work on the summer anime preview, so there’s always that to anticipate sometime soon.
I was rather looking forward to this episode, as I remember that the fights with these guys were particularly entertaining the first time around. I was generally pleased with how they treated it this time, albeit with a few too many speedlines for my tastes. Although Slicer the Homicide is an awfully stupid sounding name.
This guy’s story reminded me of Johnny Depp’s character in Sweeny Todd who was a barber who kills people sitting on his trap barber’s chair with his shaving knife. The dead are then dropped down and turned into meat pies in the basement. Not exactly the same, but that’s just went through my disturbed mind (Mr. Todd was certainly scarier, he sung).
Oh man, the awkward gags again…
That looked painful
The “am I a doll” storyline is necessary for character development I know, but I still don’t particularly like it. Less emo, more fightan~!
Now Kimbley, he’s one crazy ass freak too. Plus, Hiroyuki Yoshino (Allelujah, Gundam 00) does a great crazy guy voice. I always found that turning stuff into bombs was a rediculously awesome alchemy power, one of my favorites in the show by far. And, I think this show has a rather high ratio of mentally unstable individuals making up its cast of characters. Keeps it interesting, but often creeps you out.
