Black Cat 22

Filed under: Black Cat — Ren @ 8:21 pm

You know, I don’t like the watercoloury effect they use in the Eden scenes. It’s not as pretty as, say, Honey & Clover. It just looks too washed out and kinda blurry. And I wasn’t crazy about some of the music this time around. Plus, I’m a little confused as to what is actually going on. (Maybe I’m not paying close enough attention). But I’m entertainaed nonetheless.

As far as Eden is concerned, biblical references continue to abound. Let’s see… We have Adam and Eve, and the animals who are trying to tear Eve from paradise are serpents. There were more, but I can’t think of them at the moment.

Even though it’s supposed to be the most intense part of the series, I find that it’s mostly just hilarious. Such as Eve using her “previously acquired knowledge” to destroy the armed helicopters. Sven swears he didn’t teach her how to do that. Who’s the real culprit, you ask? Well she learned it by watching TV. SEE! Turns out all of those overprotective parents were right: television IS corrupting our youth.

I was also chuckling through the scene where they all try to figure out what Eve likes. If it was me, it’d definitely be takoyaki. Rin was the only one who hit the nail on the head when she said “Sven”, but Sven insists that it’s fireworks that she likes best.

Random exclamations while viewing:

Eden became a giant woman? What?! The writers of this series must be male.

How cute is SDblushingRin!

Anyhoo… This show just amuses me to no end. It’s so weird and funny and cool all at the same time. I’m looking forward to the final battle next episode. Too bad it’s the last one! *Crosses fingers for a second season*

    this is so cool. So many characters are involved in a conflict at the same time.

    Agreed! I’m anxiously awaiting Bakakozou’s release of ep 23 so I can see how it ends. I’ve also held off reading Ten’s writeup until then! Ohhh but it’s getting harder by the day.

    [...] for the blurry effects in Eden, the penultimate episode pleases this viewer. I agree with Ren, the bleached effect needs work. Pffft, it gives me a headache. Lest I forget, I must we [...]

    If you didn’t read the manga yet I suggest you read it because it has some things in it that weren’t even in the series. The place where I read it was so check it out and you’ll see what I’m talkin about.
