Well, that was rather underwhelming…they just ran away. So the battle has started against Voban…they really make him sound like he’s the strongest Campione or something (or at least the most mysterious or oldest). I worry about how they’re going to have a stronger foe after him, since he clearly can’t last that long.
Liliana hasn’t really shown any signs of a potential betrayal of Voban…we saw how she met Mariya, I guess. It looks like she was a survivor of the rogue god summoning like Mariya, but she looks a lot less injured in the flashback, which is slightly suspicious. I wonder how Mariya gets away and Liliana becomes a servant of Voban.
Is anyone else bothered by the powers and abilities in this series? All of Godou’s powers seem like very flashy one-shot attacks, giving him problems fighting a simple mob of minions. And Voban strikes me as almost a copy of that one guy from Tsukihime (with the beasts and whatnot). Erica’s flying around with what (in my opinion) are the coolest abilities, but none of them seem distinct because she’s always yelling out the name of her sword.
I wonder if maybe too much effort went into getting the gods right…I mean, even Egyptian gods (cards) are being brought in. Either way, next week will hopefully be the continuation (and conclusion) of the battle against Voban. I’d be pretty upset if they decide to go with “we escaped and now we need to lay low for a few days and train.”
