Another fun episode. Not quite as strong as the first episode, but still up their. Loved the ladies' costumes and the monster design.

I feel like Alice's actress needs some vocal training. It comes off as a bit strained in this episode. It's not terrible, just comes off as a bit uneven.

So I guess the plot of this series is that Zero is going to fall in love?

If last week's video game was based off Bioshock, then this one has to be Bloodborne. But then again, I think that any time I see a tricorne hat nowadays. Hello Haga Yuria, what have you been up to lately?

Edit:
Again, I'm confused by the morality system in Garo. I thought Horrors possessed you if you had evil in your heart. Does being mad at a bitchy co-worker count as evil? I mean, she doesn't kill her till the Horror possesses her, she even resists it and the Horror. And then she takes the moral stance by calling her bully the ugly one, right before killing her. Wha?

Rei, she was right there. Have some peripheral vision. Alice, don't worry about your fricking camera during a fight.

Huh weird. I didn't notice this before, but those sounds that the Horror makes sound really familiar. Like noises of monsters from video games.

Is the production crew playing Mortal Kombat X? The killshot of the episode's from the very last step of one of Scorpion's fatalities.

It's nice to see Yuria again.
I've hunted down Gunpla, antiquated/non-consumer PC components, energy drinks with illegal ingredients, autographs from voice actors all while lounging around and about like a blind Jin... I need help.

Another good episode. I think I like with Rei and Alice is the situation is similar to Kouga and Kaoru in that they keep bumping into each other, but the personalities are reversed. I mean I do like Kouga as a character, but Rei being the main character and also a shit talker really adds to enjoyment factor for me.

Good to see the bar owner from Black Blood back as well.

Rei definitely has more personality here than he did in Black Blood. They really messed him up back there.

Yeah, and it's definitely more in line with his characterisation from the first 2 seasons.

I found the opening of this episode really confusing, with all the quick cutting between the two girls talking, and also cutting between the present and past at the same time, I couldn't tell who was who. In the end, the second girl didn't really matter, but I just get frazzled when I'm that disoriented up front.

Liked the brief nod to the two priests from Black Blood, I didn't really think they'd be mentioned at all.

Is Rei going to find love again in this series? On one hand, it seems like a really big leap for the character (and I would feel weird about him abandoning his family to look the missing Kouga). On the other hand, I get a sense of them wanting to give closure to all the original cast, and this would bring Rei's story full circle.

Of course that Rei is different in this series. Probably this is before or after he training Raiga? Anyway this series theme is "how Rei got his waifu" simple as that... we see Rei doing his daily Makai Kishi tasks and bodying horrors then someone is going to wake up the Dragon Knight and Rei will have to stop it. The only question here is why this girl is looking for such strange egg. She is also very similar to Kaoru and the relationship is going the same way. She is too cute to not fall for her so get in there Rei! XD.
