I just can’t help but think of how amazing this series is. Despite the serious mood, it still manages to insert effective snippets of comedy that blends well with the story.
It isn’t often that I encounter a series capable of killing its own sense of drama (or urgency) by inserting uncalled for comedy without it actually spoiling the mood. I guess it shows how well thought this absurd series is.
As it turns out, and as with Maoyuu, religion always have a hand in fucking up everything. No offense to the religious passers-by of this blog, but shit is bound to happen as long as an religion, as an organization, attempts to exert influence and seize authority.
Another thing that I liked with this episode was the amazing visual quality. The animation was obviously upgraded when shit got down and I enjoyed how powerful these characters truly are. It reminds me how they were significant figures back in Ente Isla and how their strength speaks for themselves. Of course, their predicament on Earth is another thing but seeing all the shit Mao has been doing, from working at a fast food to having money problems, it’s quite refreshing to see that he is STILL a DEMON OVERLORD!
For some reason, I wondered what he felt when news reached him that four of his trusted generals were slain? I mean, this level of responsibility is a form of attachment in itself. To the people under you, to your dreams, your goals. For a demon overlord to actually look over his underlings, this ought to mean something. That maybe, despite the atrocities he committed, he wasn’t that bad of a person or perhaps, he has a different reason.
