  • This episode is packed with action, but the ending is a little weak.

    8.5
    The episode opens with a bit of a flashback into the end of the previous episode, which is pretty standard. It also quickly enters into the action as Kirika and Chloe rush off to Mireille’s rescue. This episode was very high-paced, and revealed even more about Chloe’s character, which was long overdue. The villain in this episode is very cunning and deadly, and a real challenge to the Noir girls. It’s a shame that they don’t get more of an opportunity to duel with her. However, the ending to this episode seemed to get dropped abruptly, and on first impression, it doesn’t look like a big, glaring plot point that was raised here will be answered anytime soon. Ordinarily, that would be okay, but the fact that this episode seemed to have skipped a large portion of the ending scene was a little disorienting.



    If I came away from this episode with anything, it would be this: What side is Altena and Chloe really on? There still seems to be a lot about the Soldats that has yet to be revealed.

    • Chloe: It is called the Great Return. Both you and I must endure the trials in preparation for it.

    • Chloe: And your point is?
      Shaoli: My point is that I eliminated a traitor for the Soldats. I took care of him for you, can't you see that?
      (later)
      Chloe: The Soldats have no need for one such as you. That should tell you all you need to know.

    • Shaoli: That's right - the incense burner. To me, it is but a sweet, heavenly fragrance, but to normal people, it is the bringer of death.
      Yun: Traitor...
      Shaoli: Oh, not a traitor, just a girl with the ruthlessness needed to survive.
      Yun: Then why kill me too?
      Shaoli: To ally with the strong.

    • Yun: "Ally with the strong" it is said. An ancient wisdom which you have most certainly mastered. You have the ruthlessness to survive in this world.

    • Yun: The clan of the Cold Eyed Killer's claws have tremendous reach, so it is said.

    • Chu: This is not over yet, Ho. I'll make it up even if it costs me my life.
      Ho: Yes, you will.

    • Kirika: If you're really here to help me, I'd like to know why first.
      Chloe: This moment is not a time for talking.

    • Shaoli: But your time has not come quite yet.
      Yan: Just kill her. Why not be done with it now?
      Shaoli: Because there is still one more.
      Chu: Clever. So you're going to use one as bait for the other. No wonder they call you the Cold-Blooded Killer.
