It’s surprising to think how we only have a few more episodes left of Part 4. That announcement for Part 5 can’t come soon enough. I also hear that we might get a new opening around the 30th of this month too so I can’t wait for that. Another stellar episode that went through Atom Heart Father quite fast and RPS Boy for next week will quickly move us to the much awaited Highway Star fight.
Without a shadow of doubt, this episode delivered all of the manga’s great scenes with excellent music choice, voice acting, and impressive animation. A perfect way to kick off the 2nd half of the series with Kira’s escape and identity swap with our apparent loser, Kawajiri Kosaku. From the looks of it, Atom Heart Father is only one episode too so we’ll be back with Kira before you even know it.
Let’s get to this
Sheer Heart Attack Part 1 begins, even if the actual thing appeared last week.
I’m so happy that we’re getting so many consecutive weeks of Kira, and to think there’s even more to come is downright awesome. I personally can’t wait for the next episode where Kira once again shows his obsessive tendencies that adds so much to why he’s an enjoyable villain. Anyway, I’m late so let’s get on with it.
My faith with David Production has gone far and beyond satisfying my expectations. D.P has seem to have prioritized a majority of good scenes for this episode which more than makes up for how Killer Queen looked up in the far-away shot last week. To make it better, I now see why they tackled Yukako and Cinderella earlier because the conclusion of this episode sent us straight into Sheer Heart Attack, which I can’t wait to see.
Although the episode quality has gotten some backlash after the hours the episode came out, I was still very much satisfied with the episode. He’s here folks, our main villain of Part 4, just a highly deranged man with access to a sure-fire way to kill anyone he wants and get away with it. I mean, come on, who wouldn’t end up being a serial killer like this? No doubt someone would be less weird about it but hey, it’s something to consider.
One more week til we shift gears properly to match chase.
In many ways, I can see why they would move this episode ahead of Kira’s formal introduction. There was only one “arc” that separated Kira’s introduction to his actual encounter with the main crew so having this little love-story in between didn’t keep the tension up. It’s honestly a change for the better since it’s another week I won’t have to wait to get to Sheer Heart Attack. It also helps to have Shigechi’s character sink in so there’s that.
Anyway, let’s get to Cinderella.
Completely forgot about Shigechi’s episode due to being sick and there’s no better time to have a dual episode recap when we have two of Shigechi’s episodes to cover. Let’s get straight to it so I can get back to getting the other series recaps in. For me, I never liked Shigechi all that much and basically treated him the same as his popular nickname implies, a Dodoria. This arc was special to me because we get so much Josuke and Okuyasu moments and faces and that’s basically what all my screencaps are for this episode.
