Black Cat 12-15

Filed under: Black Cat — Ren @ 9:40 am

Another batch entry for your reading (dis)pleasure. This time around it’s Black Cat episodes 12 to 15.


Heavy on the drama, light on the comedy complete with bittersweet flashbacks of saya and a fight between Train and Creed. Beautifully animated, fast paced episode. I much prefer these episodes to the silly ones.


That being said, Kyouko is pretty funny in episode 13. I don’t know how I feel about the new ED. I want to like it because I really didn’t enjoy the first silly ED, but this one seems just a little too.. soap opera theme songish? I don’t know how to describe it.


What the heck? Train is a little kid suddenly? Ah, who cares. At least we get some backstory for him!


Not much besides silliness takes place in this episode except at the very end when Train takes off to go hunt down and kill Creed on his own.

Black Cat remains entertaining and engaging. Until next time! (Uh, might be a while)

Basilisk 22-24

She lives! That’s right folks, I’m not dead yet, though I’m not really around much these days.

I finally was able to see the end of Basilisk, but I don’t have the time or energy to do individual entries so I’m batching it up.

I don’t think I’ve ever hated a character in a series as much as I have loathed Tenzen. His cruelty knows no bounds. That being said, it certainly made him interesting. You never knew what he was going to do next.

Wow. What an end. I’m glad I waited to watch these three episodes back to back so that they lost none of their momentum.

All I can really say is…….. Beautiful. Disgusting. Intense. Tragic. Sigh.
