Episode 5: Hot tears gently fills his heart… (熱き涙、やさしく彼の心を満たし…)
Teito is still dragging his chains around but Mikage is alive and free. Both are reunited in this episode. Another Kor appears in the church grounds and battles Teito. Ayanami seems to be behind the Kor’s appearance and is using the Kor to bait Teito. Frau saves the guy who is possessed by the Kor. The Bishops once again feel unease by the latest disturbance. First time seeing Frau that worried about the brat in chains too. Labrador sensed something unfortunate will affect Teito and I’m guessing it probably has to do with Mikage. Mikage’s sudden appearance and him knowing where Teito is, feels a tad peculiar. I don’t think Ayanami would simply sets him free that easily.
I do find the scene where Teito has another flashback attack a bit out of sync. It has more to do with the flashback itself, the part when ‘father’ pass on ‘the eye of Michael’ to Teito and he suddenly remembers he’s a Prince and an heir to the Raggs Kingdom. Just which part of the flashback tells him that?! I’m really puzzled! Aya-tan didn’t look so nice in some of his scenes…I thought he looks a bit off and er, ugly. And little Kuroyuri finally speaks, haha…and he has a cute voice. Ah, Castor’s dolls are in action next episode and I’m wondering if the ‘unfortunate’ incident will happen next week or the anime is going to drag the inevitability a bit further with more filler bits like some of the scenes in this episode.
More screenies below:
Why do I get the feeling that the females (nuns/sisters) of the church carry out all the labourious work and the males (bishops/male clergy) do nothing? Razette imitating Frau’s face (lol) is funny and weird at the same time. Teito having another flashback attack where he suddenly remembers he’s the heir to the Raggs Kingdom.
An unexpected reunion between best friends. Will this bubbly reunion last? Labrador feels something is wrong while Frau is being his nutty pervy self again, recommending his *special* medicine to Mikage and trying to skip mass…hehe.
Mikage and Teito catching up on lost time at the lovely greenhouse tower, unaware that Castor’s doll is spying on them. It’s cute that Teito blushed when Mikage thought that Teito and Frau get along charmingly. But their short peaceful time is interrupted by a pale looking guy. Who might this stranger be?
The pale guy is possessed by a Kor and Aya-tan is sniggering happily with his latest intrusion at the Seventh District Church grounds. Lots of sparkly zaiphon casting ensues between Teito and the Kor. It’s rather amazing that Teito can move so nimbly with his chains. I would reckon the shackles weigh quite a bit. Well, once again Frau coolly saves the day and the pale guy since Teito fail to lend a hit at the Kor despite his remarkable agility.
Teito and Mikage exchanging bedtime stories. I thought the part where Mikage got up and walked over to Teito, telling him not to seek revenge or become enemies of the Imperial Army, a little oddly abrupt. The dialogue feels disjointed from where Teito left off. I just don’t feel the tension there.
