We’re entering non-episodic plotsville (I think!) and it’s awesome!! Yuri was the first to sense that something is really strange with the new transfer student, which makes me wonder how much of a role she’ll have to play as the series progresses. Up until now she’s been a fairly unimportant side character.
I love how Kekkaishi blends humour and seriousness. I love how Tokine is really starting to take notice of Sumimura’s growth. I love how I was completely fooled by the new transfer student. I thought he was going to be the typically obvious new baddy. Turns out he was sent by Yoshimori’s brother to watch over him. Ah, Asa, you’re not always so bright…
Anyway, we are also introduced to the fruity English teacher, Minou. He seems almost too happy-go-lucky and nice to be true. Maybe he has some connection to the bad guys. Shishio (Mr. Transfer Student) certainly seemed to be disturbed by him. But maybe I’m just being fooled again. >_>
Aggh, there’s just something about Kekkaishi though. I love it! I need more. :3
