Devil Survivor 2 The Animation Episode 11: Saturday of Variances

‘What the hell? Why can’t I help me friends at a time like this?!’

Shin Megami Tensei - Devil Survivor 2 Episode 11 Image 0016

Synopsis: The seventh Day of Judgment has arrived, and the final Septentrion appears, leaving a path of destruction in its wake. With Hibiki still in a coma following the previous day’s encounter, Daichi and the others — armed with a newly redesigned summoning app — will band together in an effort to stop it. But their confidence is shaken when all of them receive dead face clips, and the enemy reveals it has a disruption wave that can prevent their demons from being summoned. Will a last-minute arrival be enough to turn the tide of battle?

 Hmmm… interesting. It wasn’t a bad episode… what?! It wasn’t! I know I like to bitch about this show and I know that I give this show a lot of shit… but that’s because it IS shit! but that’s because I care!… about how shit this show is. I joke, of course, I mean, sure, this show does have it’s flaw, but in the end Devil Survivor 2 delivers an expected experience and that’s why it’s crap shit gay homoerotic and okay show… Sure, episode 10 had the ONE plot twist but other than that we’ve simply been receiving the same old stale plot every episode. The Septentrione was barely even this episodes focus! Where’s the antagonist that we can all hate? Yamato? As much as I hate him, if I’ve been watching this show all this time and YAMATO is the ‘final boss’… i’mma kill some bitches…

 Who wrote this episode? Freaking Gen Urobuchi?! Everyone died! Well… not everyone… but everyone died! And I didn’t feel a thing… What were you expecting? Me to break down into tears as the characters we’ve known for all of five seconds get killed off in the most anticlimactic way? Well, I guess if they’d tried over, fallen down and hill and broken their necks it would a have a bit less dramatic but I digress… What? Just because the group had one ‘cute’ moment together doesn’t make them the freaking cast of Angel Beats! Jungo? Oh? He cooks? I guess I should feel sorry for him. And Hinako? She dances? Mate, I’m losing out on some fine ass, let the tears come down! This show needed to develop it’s character further and that’s what I was holding out for… unfortunately I was given nothing and in the end I was left with a bitter taste in my mouth (probably my coffee because, y’know, a man doesn’t need sugar… yes, I forgot to put it in) and a yearning for some Daichi awesomeness…

 Speaking of which… Nice on Daichi! It’s not very often I get to commend Daichi for saving everyone’s ass’s… apart from Juno, Airi, Hinako, random old man number 1, random old man number 2 etc. You get the picture. Whilst I’d like to keep on commending Daichi’s awesomeness… I can’t. We knew it was coming and that’s why it had no impact. The power of your heart decides how strong a demon you can summon? Give me a break. Talk about an unlimited deus ex machina. About to get raped? Feed your fear and summon a police officer demon! Stressed about your exams? Get even more stressed, scream and summon a demon to kill everyone around you! Forgot to put sugar in your coffee? Cry like and little bitch and summon a demon to cradle and rock you into a sweet, sweet slumber…

 And Yamato?!?!?! I have nothing to say to you you dirty scum bag. It’s all Yamato’s fault that they’re dead and I can’t wait for some revenge to be enacted… Yamato better not win Hibiki! I’m just saying…

 And on a final note… it was an average episode full of average. If you’ve been watching this show from episode 1 you know exactly what you’re getting and when. Two more episodes until the end. Two more episode until I’m free from Yamato’s evil, random useless character death and an anticlimactic plot… sounds nice, doesn’t it? Almost like paradise…
