Well, this week’s episode features a lot of Yuu showing off against the vampires and saving his (female) teammates. Other than that, this week’s episode focuses on letting the team members with Yuu and build a relationship (except Yoichi). It also showcases the forces of the vampires, split into the second-class vampires that can be easily defeated by the Cursed Gears and the nobles who are still out of reach. This is distinguished from the typical vampire setup in other shows where the vampires summon mindless ghouls to fight for them.
This episode is somewhat worrisome, though…because of how much Yuu has to bail his teammates out of bad situations, it suggests that the show will pretty much make Yuu the juggernaut of the group destroying every tough vampire that moves while his team just sits on the sidelines and watches. Anyway, next week will be more battling in Shinjuku…possibly more nobles? Can I reiterate the point I made in earlier posts about the pace of this show being sluggish?
