For the first time in the series, there is a seriously meaningful kiss scene. I just had to nod my head in approval. Are you jelly, Shana?
Little did I think that Keisaku would prove to be a major character in the series. I’ve never really liked him and I’ve reluctantly zoned in his involvement due to some focus on his side of the story. But more than that, he’s involved in Margery’s involvement in this flame hazing affair. And speaking of which, they actually hooked up! I mean, last I checked, Margery is a couple hundred years old, isn’t she? And Keisaku is a high school student. Meaning, she’s one smokin’ cougar… But I do admit that this really makes sense so the joke stops there. Believe me, I could keep going.
Meanwhile, Sophie is not just a kind-looking woman. In fact, it’s best not to mess with her because she kicks so much tail — Decarabia can tell you firsthand. Although I honestly don’t find the global influence of the war to be quite that interesting, it was fun to watch the armies duke it out to control God’s Gate. And despite my lack of enthusiasm, I do have to commend the presentation and pace of recent episodes. Even with lackluster pizzazz, all indications point to Shana’s eventual encounter with Yuuji — on more than one occasion.
I think the big picture is what matters most, even if I show some hesitation in trying to enjoy this third season. I do want to see an outright conclusion and preferably with tragedy along the way. I’m not quite sure how JC Staff will continue to handle Shana III but I’m willing to be patient if I came this far. And it’s not like I want Yuuji and Shana to hook up either. I mean, she might look like she’s ten but she is quite older than he is. These flame cougars…
