“You have to make a friend to rejoin the army.” Just looking at it, it’s a pretty cheesy idea…that being said, I thought it was a pretty funny request given the setting of the show. Anyway, this week’s episode introduces both my favorite character in this show, Hiiragi Shinoa, and my least favorite character, Saotome Yoichi. Shinoa is pretty much always trolling the group, so I’m looking forward to how she will be adapted in the anime.
Next week is the introduction of the cursed weapons, the ones that will need to be used to fight the vampires. If I remember correctly, a third main character in the show should also be introduced next week if Yuuichirou and Yoichi are getting their weapons. That would leave only one character left in the main group, so the real fighting can commence. And as a side note, how great is the music in this show? For me, it’s an absolute delight.
