… I don’t think I like the noisy, happy, genki Train.. I miss my melancholy mysterious brooding hero. It’s sooo weird to see him laughing and smiling. It’s going to take me some time to adjust to this..
Anyhoo… this time around we are introducted to two Tao wielders - Charden (who has a ridiculously tall hat, by the way) and his female partner Kyouko. They want to destroy Chronos, and part of their plan is to make people drink this special liquid that will give them taoist powers. Well, that’s one way to recruit! Only problem is their recruits usually end up going psychotic and literally self-destructing.
Our target today is a guy who likes plants a little too much and goes a wee bit nutso when Eve steps on his flowers. Charden and Kyouko had given him a little flask of that liquid earlier, and he takes his opportunity to drink it. Eve tries to fight him on her own, with little success. But in the end Team Black Cat! prevails.
Again, it’s weird to see Train so… animated. I still enjoyed this episode because the interactions between the characters are just so amusing and the action scenes are always lovely to behold. My absolute favourite thing this time around though has got to be the music. I so need this soundtrack.
