We got a pretty interesting episode this week as the plots that have been swirling around since season one start to form. It’s actually starting to look like a large portion of these plans were masterminded by Mahiru and not Kureto, as previously suggested. Guren also makes for a nice potential antagonist for the final episode because he truly seems to be a nice person, but is seemingly corrupted by the demon Mahiru in his weapon. The part that I didn’t fully understand was this: is Guren’s “second personality” just how people perceive his possession by the demon or does he actually have a second personality that surfaces when the demon speaks to him.
In next week’s episode, hopefully we finally find out what Owari no Seraph is (have we actually had an explanation?). I also have make the obligatory movie reference…we really need to find out “what’s in the box?” My guess is that it’s Kimizuki’s sister because it seems somewhat appropriate. It might also be interesting to see Yuu and Mika work together for once, but it seems unlikely because the preview suggests that Yuu will once again lose control. Oh well…I can only hope.
