I'm out of the hospital, back home and it's back to 'work' with Talking Anime, we're up to episode 14 of Blue Seed, "A Chase Down Yamato Highway! Love Under Fire!!"
- Original Air-date: January 4, 1995, English Air-date,
December 18, 1999
This episode concludes the second disc on the 2005 ADV Box
set, disc labeled 'Decent Into Terror'
Momiji is not all there mentally following revealing her
feelings to Kusanagi who is distracted with the return of Kaede,
which leads him to not really be a factor with the Aragami monster
of the week.
The town featured in this episode, called Nara, is 'Nara
City' and is known for a lot of its historical monuments, including
shrines and temples.
We see that Koume is a bit of an expert when it comes to
Japanese Shrines and Temples, in particular with the 'favor' system, if you make a deal saying you'll do something in return what you want will be done for you. Momiji uses this as a way to try and get Kusanagi's feelings for her by vowing to defeat an Aragami by herself
Perhaps the most surreal thing about this episode is
Yaegashi, who is jealous of Kusanagi and wants to defeat the Aragami
in order to get Momiji, he's very gun-ho and over the top, making
Koume seem reasonable and
level headed i
The Argami, being made out of a tree, and spreads a killer
pollen all over the place was just a big monster to be defeated,
Nothing to special about it though it can be argued it is one taken
down by Koume and Momiji
This episode also sees Sakura Yamazaki become 'officially'
linked to the TAC as Mr.Kunikida had to pick her up, though in a
limited role, Sakura plays a big part in using her magic to stop the
Aragami from smashing up a temple.
