Episode Summary

EDIT
Final Promise
AIRED:
A rogue demon, Ranpa, the only one in his town not to be affected by the negative energy, is paid a visit by Dr. Ni, who gives him some medicine to help keep his sanity while he works on completing a painting to keep his final promise to a friend of his. Sanzo catches cold, and the gang end up meeting the local pediatrician, the friend of the demon. Ranpa struggles against the forces acting to take him over again as the Sanzo party figure out the story from the doctor. However, just after finishing the painting, Ranpa's mind is taken over by the negative energy, and he becomes savage like all the other demons. Sanzo shoots the demon before he attacks the doctor, who is stunned that just to keep his promise to her, he was able to keep his sense of self for so long.moreless

    This episode evokes real pathos. So far most of the episode have given a adrenal rush and shown us the dark side of the demon, and only mentioned the previous peace. But this one, it proves that the demon, full ones can still be good and resist the darkness. Ranpa's story is beautifully written, and is one of the few that does not focus on the team. This one also shows the doctor for the lying, deceitful, manipulative freak he really is, the end where he tosses away the dairy proves this. Even there is little to laugh at in this one, there are still some funny bit, the ones with Goku in them. As an added bonus, we see some of Goku's affection for Sanzo and Gojyo.moreless
