Shougeki Gouraigan 10 released

Another disappointing episode. The humor is pretty childish still. The story elements are just pulled out of the ass when they're called forth. The characters could be interesting, but their interests and relationships are pretty terrible. Typical Inoue stuff at this point, I guess. I'm pessimistic that there will be any pay off for this series.

And I've felt this for a while, but I really hate Hitomi's character. I know her character is supposed to be gloomy, but she does legitimately bring me down to watch, with all her negativity and all. Maybe we should just go back to the townspeople being weird and quirky. At least that was at least somewhat entertaining to watch.

The new old guy really annoyed me, he just seemed to take it back to the early style eps where random shit was going on for no real reason

This show really doesnt know what it wants to be, and does it really need sooooo much dialog and soooo many people talking at once or in voices that just make you want to punch them in the face

Trying to figure out this show is clearly a losing battle. Everything that I thought they spent last episode setting up ended up crumbling when Rin explained that Granny died before the series even started. Having made it this far, I plan to finish the series, but I doubt that anything they come up with will leave me satisfied.

I agree. I`ll finish the series but I am disappointed. Great suit designs and effects, but TERRIBLE story, annoying voices, and pretty much just annoying characters overall. Oh well, only about 4 more months till the next Garo series. At least we have that to look forward to.

Other than explaining why Granny turned into Rin, I'm more confused now than I was after the previous episode...

I wonder if Hitomi is the ball of light in human form and thats why she can see things others cant.

Techincally that would still make her the heroine also it would explain why the old man is attracted to her as she is made from Rin

Yeah, at first I was frustrated because the episode didn't explain how Hitomi fit into any of this. But now, I wonder if there might be more to Hitomi.

I also think Hitomi is Gou's ball of light, but man...why kill Granny? She was the best character in the show and I lost the reason to watch it now.

I see this show just to see how messed up they can be, and that way I enjoy it a lot. I mean, they can do an episode when they start doing a homage to japanese horror films and ends being an homage to sentai, and the next can be, like someone said in the previous thread, a "softcore porn episode" XD. That's the strong point of this show for me, it can be everything and nothing and the same time.

Technically she's not gone, Rin could re-assume Granny's form at any time. Whether that will happen however is another matter entirely.

The bigger question is why Hitomi couldn't see Rin's real form until now, seeing as how she can see the real forms of the rest of the crew.

That...is not something that I had considered. I don't think it would make up for the show's lack of direction, but it would do a good job of tying characters and plot points together.

Granny's "real" story made me teary eyed.

I liked how serious this show went. They weren't trying to be as random as the past episodes.

However there is one thing that has been bugging the hell out of me.

The credit song...before the preview of the next ep. Is it really 'Dear Light' ... sounds like 'Delight'

It's in the lyric scan as "Dear Light".
