  • Even the darkest of shounens need slap stick comedy.

    8.5
    An anime that plays around with life and death, employs some catholicism and stories from the bible, still requires the deadpan humour of a shounen anime. Other than that one bit, which we'll be seeing anyways throughout this entire anime, is the only thing that bothers me about this episode. Being only the second episode, as expected we go through several story explanations, most in particular the goals of the Millenium Earl, how these Anti Akuma weapons are made, and meet some more characters. The execution of the whole Innocence explanation was done nicely well; nothing forced and doesn't boringly teach us them like a lecture at school. What is more impressive though is the character development. Although the dark overtones mixed with the slap stick comedy is an odd mix, it does create for a great combination in conjunction with these new characters we were just introduced to. Like Kumoi not wanting to take responsibility over assaulting Allan at the gates, or Kenda's "too cool" attitude. Overall a really good episode.moreless
