    First order of business: the cup scene was so crouching tiger, hidden dragon and I loved it. So in this half of the first episode we find out more about the past Heaven reincarnated from, we also learn that her wedding (Thank goodness it was interrupted) was a cover for something darker. After seeing that tattoo on Jake's back how can she trust a thing he says? Guess we'll see how that works out. Can't believe Otto doesn't believe ninjas are real, where does he think shadows come from? They utilized shurikens pretty well in the end and that's always good. I still can't believe Heaven's dad's a Yakuza but these things happen. The soundtrack for this show is beautiful though I've never heard any of those songs before. The officemax presentation and the Kyle XY preview were not wasted on me another great reason to watch this episode.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • When Heaven reads the inscription on the sword, one can see that modern style Hiragana and Kanji are used, while the 500 year old sword should show old fashioned Kanji (or at most mixed with Katagana).
