Is there anything that Kurumi can’t do while being hot?
So we come back in on the episode with Shido and Kurumi still dealing with Miku’s psuedo zombies until Kurumi does this.
So after Kurumi knocks out everyone outside we flash inside to Miku realizing that Shido’s coming to seal her. She turns to Yoshino and the Yamai twins and tells them to get ready for battle.
So what she do?
Looks like things are getting serious.
Yoshino and the Yamai twins start fighting back until Kurumi summons Zaphkiel and asks Shido to make sure that Miku won’t interfere with them saving Tohka.
Then Kurumi busts out Aleph and makes a clone to take Shido to Miku.
You know with all those clones saying Me all the time must get confusing.
Anyway clone Kurumi rushes at Miku while another covers her mouth so she can’t use her powers Kurumi sinks them both into the shadows so they can have a private conversation.
So while in the shadow world(not an official name. It’s just the best thing to call it.) Shido explains that he needs to save Tohka and he asks for her help.
Then she launches into a spiel about how humans are selfish and evil beings. Wow someone has a lot of hatred. Ironic seeing as she’s technically like Kotori, a human turned into a Spirit. Shido tries to ask why she hates humans so much only for Kurumi to call out and say they’ve run out of time.
Kurumi pulls them out of the shadow world and we see this.
Okay not bad girls but remember all of Kurumi’s clones don’t have her powers only her guns. That’s one of the only reasons why Kurumi isn’t easily the most powerful Spirit in the series(she’s pretty close to the top if not already there)
After leaving the shadow world Shido tries to talk with Miku again only to a warning shot from Yoshino. Kurumi uses Aleph and they teleport away.
So we flash to an alley somewhere where Shido apologizes for being unable to get Miku’s help or make her stay out of the way while they rescue Tohka.
Kurumi basically says no problem and you know what the basically the most powerful Spirit in the series asks for…a pat on the head.
Yeah that’s a good reward…
Anyway Kurumi explains that she doubts that Miku will do anything to endanger herself and she basically put the fear of the Lord in Miku so she won’t try and cross them.
Then we go to this.
Is everything she does sexy? The answer is yes.
After that little part is over Kurumi says that she knows where Tohka is being held, DEM’s main office in Japan.
We go inside the building with the captured Tohka, Isaac Wescott, and Sneaky Ellen(she really deserves more respect from me since she’s the most powerful wizard but all I remember her falling in that hole and getting owned by Ai, Mai, and Mii.)
Wescott explains that he wants to use Tohka’s Spirit powers to turn the world upside down and he’ll do anything to make her despair.
Ha! That’s nothing for Tohka…
After the commericial we join up with Shido and Kurumi outside DEM’s main office while Kurumi’s going over the plan until…
That’s strange. All the Spirits are already here.
Kurumi manages to save Shido and call up her clones to fight the now in coming Bandersnatch.
They change up the plan using the clones as the distraction while Kurumi and Shido take the entrance.
What the hell happened?
Looks like Mana’s returned. That’s good. Kurumi says that she has some business to take care of in DEM so she’ll leave Shido’s protection to Mana. Kurumi disappears into the shadows and Shido and Mana move forward after a quick talk with Kotori, who’s been freed from Miku’s control.
We flash over to Miku who’s basically pissed off that Shido had the apparent arrogance to talk to her and asks the girls around what Shido thinks of Tohka. Ai, Mai, Mii give nothing of value while Yoshino and the Yamai twins say even though they’re being controlled that Shido wouldn’t care how far he had to go to save Tohka.
We go to the Fraxinus and Shido getting ready to storm the DEM building. We have a quick scene with Origami trying to get moving to the fight before we get to the real fight.
First thing about this next scene is that Kurumi’s second theme, Rage, is playing in the background so it gives this an awesome feel and it really amps up the action.
We’ve got the Kurumi army vs. the DEM wizards and the Bandersnatch.
Next up Mana vs. Jessica Bailey!
He’s got Sandelphon again!
And then he goes in on some dumb DEM wizards and one tries to stab him…umm do you know that he’s got Kotori’s healing?
And we end the episode with Shido calling out to Tohka.
After that you really understand why the studio chose the song they did for the ending theme. It’s all about a hero going the distance to save the princess…and Tohka’s codename is Princess. How did I miss that?
Now that was a good episode. It’s one of those episodes that makes you sad that this is only a 10 episode season. That being said this month I’ll have the Date A Live season 1 full season review as well as three Date A Live Speculations. One’s about Origami, another speculating if Kurumi will ever get sealed, and one if the anime will get a third season. So make sure to watch out for those!
I can’t wait until the next episode it’s going to be really awesome. It’s episode 9 so you know it’s going to be awesome. I hate this wait so until the next episode
