SYNOPSIS

Taro, who was attacked by Sonoi, has disappeared. According to Jin Momoi, Taro will no longer return, but he will get a replacement. Later, Kousokuki appears and the rest of the Donbrothers fight it, but they are attacked by Sononi. Around the same time, a man named Jiro Momotani, who believes that he is a natural hero, appears and makes his move.

NEGATIVE

-It is starting to feel blatant when Kiji and Inu aren’t in a scene with the others.

POSITIVE

-The Cerebran Knights pressing their advantage to kill the rest of the Donbrothers is a great villainous move. I’m feeling the threat!

DIRECTION

-Saru Brother really got some time to shine during his action scenes. That whole second fight was splendid. The AR fight was a real spectacle. Kudos to the team for expertly blending effects.

WRITING

-The characters are behaving like rational actors in this wild world; they dismiss Jirou because of his looks; they take logical steps to bring back Tarou; Tsuyoshi wants to extract vengeance from whoever hurt Miho, the fact that it happens to be Inuzaka is going to make for great conflict.

GENERAL NOTES

-What did Kaito mean when he said he was worried that Tarou’s own strength would be his downfall?

-Jin’s view on grieving Tarou is odd

-I like Sonoi being rocked by compromising his values

-Why can’t the Bestials be killed?

-I like Haruka feeling some guilt for Tarou’s death

-It’s weird that Jirou has no powers to start

-OH BOY, Miho and Inuzaka MEET AT LAST!!!

-I am glad they asked to use the Kibi Points, but it was a bit too bad it worked

-That was an awkward cut to the other companions, Kiji and Inu. They lampshaded it, but that doesn’t really make it better…

-The Avatar World battle stage is so cool. The blending of effects and techniques is wonderful!

-The Kibi Points DIDN’T work. That’s neat!

-I like that Momtani is excited that Momoi Tarou is gone because it gives him a chance to step up and be the hero he was born to be

-I can’t believe they are going so hard on the Tsuyoshi Hitotsuki idea. That’s AMAZING!

REFLECTIONS

-How do you know you aren’t walking the wrong path? What tells you right from wrong?

SCORE

Episode 14: 7/10

The episode was a little all over the place. I like the subversion, and that the Kibi Points didn’t work and there was an off-beat vibe to it the whole time, but something was not quite right.
