Black Bullet ep 5: ladies ladies more ladies
This episode is like the guilt after really good sex.
Last episode was so good I was just expecting this one to be half as good. This might be the first episode someone didn’t die or explode or angst didn’t really occur. For once I was genuinely disinterested wheeeee!
We did get a new character anyway – Miori? Something. She’s the foil to Kisara and the one who provides the Varanium bullets for free to him. She wants to do him but rather than have Enju freak out Kisara did. I guess Enju is only intimidated by other small girls as a threat for Kentaro’s love?
Also she showed him her panties earlier so she’s pretty comfy I guess.
Anyway so the episode basically starts with Rentaro being told he has a new job- to be the Tokyo Representatives bodyguard. At first he doesn’t want to do it but he goes in for the briefing and meets this guy:
Yes, he is a douche. A giant fucking douche.
He’s such a douche Rentaro accepts the job to spite him.
Ok it doesn’t help he tried to break his knee caps a second later.
Like wow. . . never been more right about a douche in such a short time. Seriously, this guy comes up to Rentaro who obviously doesn’t want to be there and goes DON’T COME but if he had left him alone then. . .it’d have been fine. . . . so really he’s just an idiot who fought a civil officer.
So he is going to go with the president. . but first he comes out to see a young girl in a dilemma. She seems sleepy for some reason and he tries to help her sort her situation out. She is adorable. And you know what that means – evil!!!
And I mean it the bitch then turns around and says she is an assassin on da phone DAMN YOU KAWAII ASSASSIN DAMN YOU
I mean a lot happened but it was all pretty dull so I mean I guess it was okay? Just turned out that one of the big wigs in Japan wants to USE A GIANT RAY GUN TO ENSLAVE THE EARTH IN THIS DISASTER it’s whatever. Nothing too interesting.
So. . .this episode . . . let’s just be for real here. We learned an assassin wants to kill the leader of the tokyo area and that she’s being pressured by a dictator dude to give in to his crazy threaten the world BS I DUNNO GUYS WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME THESE POLITICS AREN’T EXACTLY THRILLING GIVEN THAT THE BEST PART OF THE SHOW ARE THE LITTLE GIRLS WITHOUT A SAY??
Let me tell you how much at the end it surprised me the assassin was the sleepy girl. It didn’t. You spoiled it. Stop trying to make her look cool.
Ok it’s kinda cool.
Next episode. . .more pointless politics about ruling the sullen leftovers of the world? Rentaro’s harem?
At least his love interests are skilled warrior chicks. Le sigh.
