Another god bites the dust. You know…I’m finding myself often having trouble keeping up with Campione’s style of “you’re this god, but you’re actually this god too” after Godou uses the sword. It strikes me as a sense of gravitating the different gods of mythology towards each other, almost as if suggesting something about the singularity of gods (monotheism anyone?). Something to the effect of “all gods are essentially the same guy.” Not quite that extreme, but it seems to be suggesting something of that nature.
That final bit with Perseus has me suspicious. Why is “Athena’s” face obscured? Also, Perseus reacts differently than I would expect…almost like he didn’t expect her to be there. Since he’d seen Athena earlier, I doubt he would react that way to seeing her. Is there some sister of Athena we need to know about? Because she could very well be our final boss for the show. The other option is a doppleganger, which is less fun because it means that it could be basically anyone (anyone serpent-related I guess). Anyways, a new character next week? Another shrine maiden, it seems.
