Second Ship and First Ship of Circus are off to save Karoku. They manage to take over the security system and take over the mansion, but they can’t find Karoku! Fights are starting off everywhere and Hirato finally leaves the Ship to face Uro. Azana starts to act weird and he invites Akari to join the Kafka. Nai remembers his days as an animal with Karoku and reaches for the sky, where the forest opens a rainbow gate, assumedly to Karoku.
Now this is the Karneval that I have in my mind. A show packed with epic and flashy fights involving our equally flashy and beautiful men and women. Although this show has been pretty much all over the place in the past episodes, I think all of the details are now coming together. The anime follows the manga right? It just shows on its pacing. A slow build up and then we are going to have an epic end for an arc. At least, that’s how I view Karneval right now.
The only problem that I have now is that, they focused more in the world building that I don’t really know that much regarding these beautiful casts. They only developed, um, Nai and Gareki? It’s quite understandable though because we only have 13 episodes. I just wished that they used them more effectively. But yeah, I think there’s also a problem with the source material. I’ll check it out once the show finishes. I’m now interested!
Anyway, like I said, I’m really looking forward for the action and this episode quite left me hanging. We are able to see Tsukumo’s abilities now and she is able to redeem herself! Well, it’s time for her to kick some ass.
My prediction last week is right! Azuna has something to do with the Kafka, or so what I’ve conclude from this episode. He’s claiming that since they keep on losing to Varuga it just shows that humans are inferior to them and they are on the right side of justice. From what we knew, he was a victim of Varuga and he hates them. But now, I think he resigned struggling against them. I wonder what Akari would do!
Right now, Gareki is trying to prove his worth to Circus. He thinks of himself as useless and burden to them and that makes him feel so bad. His pride prevents him from accepting Hirato’s offer for him to become a member of Circus. I think that deep inside he wants to become a member but he needs to show first that he deserves it. Something like that. His decision to leave the Ship depresses our poor Yogi. I think he really loves him after all LOL.
Anyway, another mystery has been opened up, as we see another Karoku (tell me if I’m wrong, the quality of my video is quite a mess!). I think he created a clone. It’s really hard to read his character. He’s the owner of Nai’s old Circus’ bracelet so I wonder what his involvement in the organization is.
Speaking of Nai, he was able to use the bracelet! But I wonder what power he possesses now?
Overall, it’s a great episode. I’m really looking forward for its conclusion and I hope that they’ll end it nicely with all the issues and mysteries solved (at least for this manga arc). You’ve raised the bar; don’t disappoint me with your ending Karneval!
