We got a nice throwback to the opening song of the first season in this week’s episode (it’s the song playing when Aihara stands up to “attack” Mika in case you didn’t notice). Another nice episode, this time focused on Mika. Despite how much he’s trying to embrace his vampirism to save Yuu, he’s still able to gain a human’s trust. This week’s episode also proposes a curious divide between the vampires and humans…for whatever reason, vampires don’t consider the act of suicide to protect comrades. I’m really interested to know why…lack of fear of death? No respect for torture? Or just no care for camaraderie?
That aside, next week’s episode starts to battle against Crowley. Given the introduction of the vampires with Crowley at the start of this week’s episode, I’m actually starting to question whether they will be killed in this assault (online opinion of these vampires seems to be good). Also, given that the title of the episode is Shinya and Guren, it’s very unlikely that Mika will show up next week. That’s probably reserved for the week after…perhaps he shows up at the end of the episode. Anyway, I’ll be curious to see how Shinya and Guren fight together…are they supposed to be close or something?
