  • ZOMG AWESOME

    The reason I'm such a huge shounen fan is for episodes like these. The battles, the physics, and the battle systems to create these carefully planned out bouts. Although a little too much time was spent on Stein explaining the plan, in front of the enemy no less, the fight he had with Medusa, albeit a little short, was an eye popper at every single move they made. Medusa's ability to use vectors is one of the more interesting shounen abilities I've ever seen, and Stein's sharp battle instincts really gives Medusa a run for her money, offering a very sweet three minute non stop battle. Not to mention Death the Kid, Black Star, and Maka maneuvering through Medusa's vectors was aesthetically pleasing itself. The only thing that brought this episode down was a little too much talking.moreless
  • Shinigami-sama introduces the tale of the Kishin Asura, and the group underground faces their first threat in the way to the Kishin, Medusa. A solid episode.

    So, this episode had everything and even more I had hoped it would have. Animation was pretty solid, especially in the end. Why didn't Shinigami-sama kept his old mask... We saw Blair! And she's ready to own the Mizune. And we finally see most of Stein and Medusa's abilities, though I still think they have a lot more to offer. Still, I can't really feel right about how easy Kid and Black Star went through Medusa's Vector Arrow. Yes, they are 2 incredible kids, but I expected more from Medusa. Well, this episode was a nice setup for the battles to come, but next episode we'll focus on the Maka/Chrona fight, and perhaps knowing more about the black blood. Hurray for Crazy Maka!moreless
