Opinions: (A+)

It’s only the third episode, but man, this series isn’t pulling any punches! This was definitely the best episode yet (there’s only been three of them so far anyway XD) and I have to say that a number of interesting things happened that have only continued to develop my interest in this series and the story.

If there’s one thing that I want to say, its that Takashi and Busujima are friggin awesome. I love these two characters, they’re insanely cool, insanely strong and definitely the calm, cool and collected types that are made to lead others in times of crisis. I’d actually be interested in seeing THEM as a pair, even though I know its never going to happen. Personally, Rei and her emotional mishaps and episodes are starting to really annoy me. First she went nutts with the whole Hisashi thing, and then she decides to jump off a bus instead of confronting Shido and the issue at hand? Jeez, I’d rather she just die so Takashi and Busujima can form an actual cool couple pair.

Shipping aside, Shido being introduced into the show has only enriched an already interesting cast of characters. The sneaky, sleezy selfish type, that’s always trying to manipulate others and control everything character type fits so well in this story. Add to that, the fact that he seems to be a bit of a nutter (the part where he mercilessly kicked the poor kid in the face had me cringe!). Definitely an interesting character to add to the mix!

It also seems that Rei has some manner of history with him? Could he have  tried to make a move on her? I don’t know, he doesn’t seem like the womanizer type. What else could have her so worked up though? Maybe he screwed her or Hisashi over in some way? I’m sure we’ll find out more about what exactly has Rei so pissed of that she decides to jump off the bus.

Speaking of Buses, I found the intense scene of the bus crashing and almost crushing Takashi and Rei rather thrilling. It does remind me of a similar scene in Resident Evil 2, where Leon and Claire are seperated by a vehicle crashing and blowing up. They also eventually meet at a Police Station, fancy that, Maybe Takashi played RE 2 and is using his experience from that? *snicker*

Also, Hirano and Takagi seem to developing some manner of a relationship too, which is kind of funny, especially how Hirano keeps smiling and charming the tsundere XD.

Preview:

Next episode will probably revolve around more Takashi and Rei Angst. There’s mentions of Hisashi, so we know that can’t be good. It also seems like the crisis is finally bringing out the worst in people.  Can’t wait for next week!
