I realize it’s taken me way too long to get to this. And by now it’s been too long since I’ve seen the episode to do a very long writeup on it. But I just have to say that I am continually impressed with Basilisk. I’m engrossed in the plot and can’t wait to see how it develops. We have our two factions, who were forced into peace by a couple with good intentions so long ago. Now that is all undone, and the frictions that have laid under the surface are showing themselves. And with a “good guy” leading each side - Oboro on one, her love Gennosuke on the other, (who are just like their grandparents who sought peace between the groups) it’s really hard to predict which side will “win”.
The fact that Oboro and Gennosuke are still in the dark about what’s going on is amazing! I can only imagine that things will get more intense when they find out.
Bring on episode 4!
ps.. I love Basilisk has the most beautiful characters and the ugliest ones I’ve ever seen - all in one show! lol.
