Hoo boy, the production values really suffered in the episode’s first half. Thankfully, the second half isn’t all that bad and the quality dip only covered the end of Superfly so it could have been way worse. With Superfly over with, I’ll give two more episode to wrap up Engima and Cheap Trick, unless they can really get through Cheap Trick that fast. Either way, things are shaping up for the finale. I sincerely pray they have enough resources to make it look great.
Something unexpected that I praise DavidPro for trying to pull off. Last time, I mentioned how we only had a few fights and episodes left and I didn’t expect them to combine not two but THREE fights involving Supefly, Enigma, and Cheap Trick taking place all at the same time. I’m pretty surprised and I completely approve since I’d rather we hurry with these things and get to the finale, even if the implications of it looking lackluster is pretty high. Hope for the best, expect the worst I guess
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.
