Hello Dwellers and Welcome to the Basement...With no new episodes of Agents of SHIELD or The Flash this week, I figure why not take advantage of the freed up time, and do an extra episode of my anime recap, review and commentary series 'Talking Anime', and tonight, I'm going over episode two of Blue Seed, titled 'It's Cruel! It's Mysterious! It's My Destiny!!'
- I get why when the series was broadcasted in English in 1999 why they did it with 'two episodes' per week, it's because the first two episodes basically is one story divided in two
- Kusangi's backstory on why he has to the blue beads in his body is explained in this episode, as well as why he figures it's best if he kills Momiji, but he can't bring himself to do it
- This episode establishes the banter between Momiji and Kusangi for the rest of the series
- I love the fact that the 'miracle of modern science' is basically Orochi's entire plan to deal with Momiji, not to mention the cause of his defeat
- I'm gonna have to use the phrase 'because Japan' to get around talking about certain aspects of this series at numerous points...
