  • Mind games.

    Animes are known for shows on supernatural powers, high school life, giant robots, samurais and ninjas, epic fights, etc. What it's not known for are mind games. Death Note set the anime world ablaze with its wit and there have surprisingly been an absence of any imitators, or at least imitators that are good. Blue Dragon is more of a shounen, but there have been a couple of mind game episodes, like the Homeron arc, and this episode. You sometimes have to wonder, why aren't there anymore? The battle of the wits between Logi and Zola is played out and executed perfectly. Feigning information, slickly saying the right words, all that good stuff. With only like a handful of episodes left in this season, there probably isn't going to be much mind game episodes anymore, which is a shame cause there should be.
