  • Unexpectedly awesome.

    Okay, while this episode was littered with cliches from every corner of the book, it handled them slightly differently and extremely well. The result is that what otherwise should have been a textbook example of a generic shounen episode prior to the ending becomes a surprisingly satisfying watch. The first eye popper was when Death the Kid gets mortally stabbed after hyping up his own attack. And then he gets revived charging up his power-up while Black Star himself gets a huge boost in his battle performance. How in the world did these two get such powerful upgrades? Who knows but you know what? It was pretty damn awesome nonetheless. And Maka's rescue of Soul deep within his personality had a great balance of emotion and melodrama. Not too much of either one; enough of both to create an even greater mix.
