Taro receives a funeral notice for Sonoi from the Noto Council. Taro, who decides to go alone, is invited to a different dimension, where he is surrounded by celestial maidens and receives hospitality such as baths, massages, and meals. Meanwhile, Don Murasame appears to help the Anoni, who is attacked by the Juto. Jiro tries to fight back, but the other Jiro and Murasame feel similar to each other…
-Muramase helping Jirou fight off the Hitsosuki doesn’t make sense because Mother told him to protect the Anoni from the Beastial. I also recall that once Murasame fought Tora Jirou when he was trying to fight a Hitsosuki. I don’t think Tora Jirou would waster his time on Anoni.
-The sandwich thing was bizarre
-Tsubasa should have been summoned to battle, but wasn’t. Why not? That’s inconsistent!
-The sandwich sauce wrecking that Cerebran tech was funny
-I love those BlackWarGreymon vibes from Murasame
-The Murasame Jirou fight was good
-I enjoyed seeing the Ninjark Sword VS the WORLD
-The effect for the headless Blue Cerebran Knight was ROCK SOLID! The stab through the chest was really good, too.
-Are the Anoni really are a distinct entity from the Hitsosuki? Why wold they be, they function as mooks to the Hitsosuki? Are we being asked to accept that constant contrivance and confluence of events? That feels off.
Episode 29: 8/10
The story is reaching a turning point. I can feel things moving where I wanted them to go. I was entertained but there was a lot going on. It was probably too much, but it worked somehow. Mazel Tov and may you be strengthened #TeamDonBros! I’m excited for the next one.
