Like those two above I’m doing absolutely nothing. Disappointed. Enraged. Tear-able.
Time to unleash my hidden RRRAAAAGGGEEE!!!!
E3 sucked big time this year: Other than showing off their new consoles (Wii U, Playstation Vita) everything else is disappointing. All the games that I’m expecting are not shown there. There’s too many people, the food sucks, there’s too many games that I’m not expecting and I am just so terrible that I decide to troll everyone out of their arse. Why is this episode so disappointing, I tell you? You mad, you mad, YOU MAAADD??? She’s gone, I tell you. Probably one of the most wonderful person I’ve heard. *cue sad violin music as I go get a handkerchief to wipe my tears and break it apart*
At least the only thing I’m happy with is receiving two free tickets to this year’s National Day Parade. And no, it’s not for you. I’m gonna keep it for myself and only for me. Screw this, I’m not going to give any of you my tickets. I earn it; I make the final decision. >:P
More darn stupid reasons to hate the training camp and stupid surprises after the jump.
As a matter of fact, CONGRATULATIONS! You have passed the exams!
You like the surprise? Well, Mephisto enjoyed it, since the training camp is all a ruse in disguise of the actual Exwire examination. I apologize for the fake rage (well, except for the games that I’m expecting were absent in E3 and the link posted above). I was probably exaggerating my disappointments a little but when you have the Tokyo Game Show coming this September, I got better again.
Summary: Mephisto reveals to the students that the combat last episode was all a test. Everyone passed with flying colours but Yukio feels that something’s not right at how the eyepatch professor behaved in front of Rin during the test and would like to know more of his mysterious intentions. Meanwhile, Yukio wants Shiemi to consider studying in normal school like everyone else. Realizing that the professor is up to something fishy, Yukio and Rin get into a fight with the professor again as he reveals his dangerous intentions to Rin…
Now its just you and me. I’m at a loss of words.
Everyone was expecting answers for Professor Neuhaus’ appearance in the dorm but thanks to Mephisto’s timely entrance, he tells the students that they have passed the exam, and the training camp was a ruse. Then they get another huge surprise as exorcists pop out of the floors, ceilings and other secret parts of the room all of a sudden, making sure that none of them get killed during the examination. As everyone recovers from the attacks, Rin lands himself into a dead end when Bon and the others asked him how he got rid of a mid-level demon, being (previously) a page and a sword wielder. Rin tells them that he just slashed at the demon with all his might, removing much of the details in the actual fight. And yeah, the mysterious two weirdos who didn’t do anything in the exam finally talked for the first time. Shiemi woke up from all the chattering and is feeling good after hearing praises from everyone, especially Bon, who hasn’t been nice to her in their first meeting, genuinely thanked her for saving them from their untimely demise. While everyone laughs at Rin’s horrible English, Izumo suspects that there is something abnormal about Rin, who defeat a mid-level demon all by himself without any help.
It’s time for revenge to what your daddy did to me and my family. Adios.
Yukio meets Professor Neuhaus again and questions his intentions of separating Rin and put him into a solo fight, knowing that he could kill him if Rin’s not powerful to handle the demon. He avoids giving Yukio straight answers, only telling Yukio that his only reason he did that was to see Rin’s powers and denies saying that he’s really going to kill Rin on the spot. Leaving more answers for later, Yukio takes a visit at Shiemi’s place and finds that her mother’s not around to give him more supplies (which makes a very happy Shiemi. After all, it’s only her and Yukio alone in the store.) Aside from that, he gives Shiemi an application form, wanting her to consider studying in True Cross Academy (the normal version) and also (probably) to increase her self-confidence and make more friends. She tells Yukio that she had doubts initially to seriously take on the challenge of being an exorcist but after the messy fiasco back at the twins’ dorm, she sounds ready to look forward for a brighter future. We get a flashback on Yukio and Shiemi’s first meeting (and for Father Fujimoto’s fans, he’s back~) and it was certainly sweet as Shiemi gives Yukio a four-leaf clover to wish him good luck of his career as a full-fledged exorcist. Remembering what the professor said about killing Rin, Yukio leaves the store.
That night, while Rin was sleeping, Professor Neuhaus was ready to murder him in his sleep but just in time due to some trick or something, it turned out he was only poking a pillow. From the back, Yukio asked him of his presence in his dorm and a fierce fight ensues at the rooftop. At Rin’s side, he was being woken up by Shiemi, who just in time saved Rin from being killed by Neuhaus and told him that she was instructed by Yukio to do this. Hearing Yukio’s name was all it takes to send Rin into fighting mode, who once again singlehandedly defeat another powerful demon that was strangling Yukio. His attacks worked temporarily and Rin was bait this time. Before anything happens, Yukio messed the summoning circle and the professor is now cornered by the twins.
Because it’s time for me to use words to beat you into submission.
The professor reveals that he was the only survivor of the Blue Night; his eye that was covered was a result in Satan’s possession of him, unwillingly killing everyone in sight that night. That resulted in his plans to kill Rin for revenge and starts making his first move, but Rin resists as he lets him beat him all he wants and gives him a heck of a lowdown, telling him that he 1) wasn’t at fault, and 2) dragging the people who aren’t involved (Rin’s classmates) to take part in his quest for revenge is hellbent wrong and selfish. Hence, the professor grudgingly gives up in his quest for revenge temporarily, not before telling him that others like him, who suffered losses during the Blue Night will be chasing after Rin. After seeing the nonchalant professor, Shiemi sees Rin injured and gives him the same treatment Paku receive from the attack. Rin, who doesn’t want to reveal Shiemi of his demon nature (with his wounds healing faster than normal humans) just go with the treatment.
And that calls for a celebration as Mephisto decides to treat everyone for…hold you breathe…that’s it… almost there… cheap Japanese-style pancakes (a.k.a. monja).
There goes our cheapskate Principal of True Cross Academy. While everyone’s enjoying their do-it-yourself-put-whatever-topping-you-like pancakes, Mephisto apologized to Yukio of the unresolved conflict between him and Neuhaus and promises Yukio that such things will not happen again. As Yukio joins his brother and his students (classmates, if applying this to normal school situations), Mephisto calls Amaimon to inform him that he will be allowed to enter the academy (with the help of Neuhaus) and create havoc and unleash hell once again. We don’t know whose side Mephisto is really on, but before we ponder about this, he overheard Rin and Bon on how delicious the pancakes are and joins them. Like everyone else, what Mephisto wants, sometimes luck decides to troll Mephisto instead of the other way round.
Shiemi probably want to hit Rin or three-way with the twins just to please herself of her forbidden fantasies.
If this series consists only of 13 episodes, Mephisto would like to end this off with a Gainax. And that means he succeeds in trolling himself and everyone.
Sounds like Mephisto can’ t always have anything he wants.
Ahh, love at first sight. And Father Fujimoto it’s good to see you healthy and living again.
After this episode, there’s no way for us to categorize the characters of their morality. Mephisto claims that he wants to help Rin and defeat Satan, yet he has Rin, Yukio, Neuhaus and Amaimon in his hands. No one knows what he really wants, and the biggest question to ask of Mephisto: Does he really want to defeat Satan or not? Amaimon; he’s a crazy man child who beats the crap out of people he dislikes, for now. And speaking of Neuhaus, he finally reveals the reasons why he’s going after Rin to him and Yukio (and probably some of you too) and going by the conversation between Mephisto and Amaimon, it sounds like he’s only a pawn in Mephisto’s game. No one is really good or evil by their first impressions at this point (except for the twins and his classmates, but for the hooded guy and puppet kid we may never know) and I doubt Father Fujimoto is a horrible judge of character when he entrusts the twins to Mephisto upon his death. From what I’ve read in the manga (no spoilers, don’t worry) it will be a long, long time before we get the chance to see Father Fujimoto and Mephisto’s first meeting together and the reason that drove Father Fujimoto to let Mephisto take care of Yukio and Rin, should anything happens to him.
Ex-or-cists…more than meets the eye~
I have a sudden urge to theorize: this guy’s probably God or someone almighty…
Rin uses Great Pancakes of Cheese, Pork and Mochi: It is a critical hit.
Like I said before, I’m the youngest son of the strongest demon feared and hated of all humankind. What I want, I get, because I make people explode at my awesomeness. You, go cook your own. Ukobach? Hell, no, he’s on vacation.
Next episode, Rin gets a pet cat. Now that’s something you don’t see everyday in a shounen series.
