Raven's real identity revealed!
Though it's honestly pretty obvious if it weren't for that time gap on dimensions thing. Haha!
It's an episode that clarifies, confirms, and explains some of the things that have happened so far. It also provides us more background on what Oz and Gil's relationship had been like. However, it was a little pathetic that the villain revealed what had happened before like she was assigned to report about it. It could have been presented in another way, not just all-talk. But putting that aside, this episode had been so good in drama (also crack! Haha!). It also makes Oz and Gil likable, because it showed that Oz is not just an abusive master and neither was Gil just a crybaby servant. They had strong points as well. Also, I really like how the anime had arranged and compressed these events (two chapters of the manga in one episode). I'm most impressed on the cliffhanger in the end. It was good.
Oz, even with that cheerful attitude of his, also had some emo moments. Haha!
I didn't actually expect it to be something Gil would do. He acted so meek, he's most likely the type to call his master's name nonstop if Oz was deep in thought. Oh well.
Seems that the girl doesn't remember gaining friends. Poor Alice.
Oh, I've noticed that she had saved a chicken piece even if she's such a glutton. I believe she saved it for Oz. Hehe. It was cute.
I'm really happy that Oz isn't the type of rich kid that is only spoiled and has his servants protect him. He's like a prince. Princes are usually also trained for combat. So when the time comes, he could protect himself. Well, yes, Raven defeated him, but Raven got more advantages (height, gun, experience, training, etc.) so it was natural. And I'm actually happy that Oz got beaten, because the "main-character-always-wins-in-fights" rule suck.
Young master . . .
May I stay by your side, no matter what happens?
I know the darkness you carry,
and you know the weakness I carry.
Even if there is no light, we will still be connected by our shadows.
And that's why,no matter how much time passes,
no matter how our situations change . . .
I always want to be your servant.
I will never betray you.
And I won't let you get hurt.
Because . . .
You are my master.
One of the most touching servant speech I've ever heard/read, and he had been true to his word. This is very touching. *teary*
But still, there had been a gunshot. Well, to those who've read this far from the manga is already aware of what happened after that, but it had been a good way to end the episode to make non-manga readers more curious on what the heck happened next. Hehe.
And before I end this post . . .
