  • The third part of the prologue, this episode introduces us the other meister Death The Kid, son of the Shinigami and his weapons, the sisters Liz and Patty.

    9.0
    Death The Kid has an obsessive-compulsive disorder which makes him be paranoid about symmetry. This is really funny actually. However, it's quite unreasonable sometimes... There's a time and place for everything and abandoning your partners in a place full of mummies just because you "think" the frame in your house is a little bit off is a little exaggerated. I wonder if anyone would do that in real life...

    Anyway, Death The Kid is the son of the Shinigami and as so, he's a Grim Reaper himself. He also seems to be more powerful than both Maka and BlackStar so I think his OCD is an attempt to balance things out.

    It was also quite funny to watch him not attack the pharaoh just because the sarcophagus was symmetrical (despite once again the fact that he almost got killed just so that he wouldn't attack something symmetrical is completely riddicolous).

    So, we have a nice bunch of characters so far, at least in my opinion. But don't worry, you're gonna see them grow.moreless
  • what in the hell...

    6.0
    As if Soul and Black Star's personalities weren't unrealistic and artificial enough, Death the Kid is the worse. His obsession for perfect symmetry is just absolutely retarded. Him letting Lupin the Thief go because his and Patty and Liz's poses were off by just a bit was just flat out stupid, and him going all the way back to his house because he thought his painting hanging on the wall was a little bit unsymmetrical was even more stupid. Not an impressive cast of characters so far that are so fabricated for the sake of being different, but instead it becomes a detriment to the entertainment. Not to mention there wasn't any cool battles to make the watch worthwhile.moreless

    • Death the Kid: (Giving a monologue) Symmetry, that is what I enjoy aesthetically.
      Liz: Here we go...
      Death the Kid: That is why I prefer using you two pistols. There is symmetry to wielding you two, right? Getting aggravated) But when you two are in human form, your hairstyles and your heights are completely different... (Grabs their breast) Even your cup sizes are completely different!
      (Gets clobbered)

    • (The Pharaoh mummy comes out of its coffin)
      Death the Kid: (Comparing sides) Right. Left. Right. Left. Right. It's totally messed up!
      Liz: It's over now.
      Death the Kid: (Pissed off) What the hell is wrong with you? Your sides are totally different! I've never seen anything so screwed up in my life! Where the hell are you from? Are you someone from Screwed up Island?! You're so disgusting... expect for your forehead! (Shoots) It's a nuisance! You don't need those decorations! You're worthless! It's a nuisance!!
