  • Ooo, A Basement

    Into Tarukane's stronghold, past the demon triad and into the basement to face the Toguro brothers.

    The bromance holds strong, propelling the boys through their challenges and costing Tarukane a bunch of money. Miyuki gave Kuwabara something to think about regarding his code. The others weren't really worth the time at all. The contact with Yukina at the end was interesting, just a glimpse more of her character before the end of the episode.

    This was mostly to move the plot along. And put our heroes in a basement.
  • The deadly Triad isnt very deadly at all..........

    This episode is about Yusuke and Kuwabara's fight against the deadly triad..........

    The episode starts with the Black Black club placing their bets. Ovcourse, they all pick the deadly triad........ Except Sakyo, who refuses not to bet on Yusuke. Meanwhie, Hiei, thinking he is being decieved heads towards Tarukane's compound to find his sister. The triad is defeated fairly easily, along with a few awkward momments and funny momments...... Their next challenge is the Toguro Brothers. Can they win?

    This episode annoyed me a little, since the deadly triad was a real disapointment. Although, an exciting battle is about to take place!
  • Sixty six trillion, does that even exist all in one place?

    More fighting for Yusuke and Kuwabara! This time however, the quantity has been cut down to three fighters, and the quality of their power has increased. Their first fight is against demon number one of the Deadly Triads, who seems to be a girl. Yusuke wanted to confirm this by touching the features that separate a female and male. Confirming it's really a guy, he beats the crap out of him. The demon still persists to say she's a girl. Maybe she's transexual? Well, Yusuke, Kuwabara and Botan hurry to fight the next two. They were nearly ambushed by the second demon of the trio, who can't be seen with eyes alone. The dynamic duo formulated a plan involving Kuwabara's impressive spirit awareness, and Yusuke's shotgun technique. Number two was quickly defeated. Number three tried using Botan as a hostage, but that failed and he gets his ass beat too.

    Back in the Black Black Club meeting, everyone's critisizing Tarukane's defenses. But he reminds them he still has the Toguro brothers protecting him, who are undoubtly the strongest he has. Despite this, Sakyo, the odd ball better who's constantly been winning, placed sixty six trillion and two hundred million on the intruders! Does that much money even exist? Well, we do know it makes up Tarukane's entire bank account. This is a make or breat situation for Tarukane and Sakyo. In another bet, Koenma and his blue ogre was gambling on the rice cake that was suppose to be Koenma's. Even though Koenma lost, he ate it anyways.

    I wasn't really expecting much from the Deadly Triads. Even though they are suppose to be the strongest of the demon gang apparitions, they were battling against the same people who have defeated two of the four Saint Beasts, and Rando; demons that have a much higher status than the "Deadly Triad". Though can't say the same for the Toguro brothers, since it seems like everyone knows who they are. In fact, Heia, who's arguably their strongest fighter thus far, is even shaky when he finds out they were part of this scandal. But this episode adds to the mystery behind Sakyo, and while the fights were one sided, they're much more polished than when the series first started.
