Farewell is Embarrassing
サヨナラは 恥ずかしい

Come on, Kenta! Al’s more of a man than you’ll ever be if you keep this up!

  • Episode Review

The first part of the episode was basically the obligatory depressing portion in between the couple’s fight and couple’s make-up. The usual horrendous fight/fall-out –> random scenes of the couple missing each other –> “Let’s make 500 babies!” progression. The stupidity of the situation and Karin pretending to completely accept becoming a real vampire may have just been a necessary evil, but…All those sad scenes reminded me of sappy Hollywood movies.

I was relieved when some action interrupted the sappiness. But what a jerk Victor is to step on that cute little bat!!! And doesn’t he have a job or something to get to? Or does he at least sleep? You’d think with all that vampire-hunting during the night, he’d be damned tired after this long. I don’t even know why he bothers, since it seems the vampires are invincible and immune to any form of weapon, even those that penetrate through them.

What I appreciated most from this episode had nothing to do with Usui and Karin. It was the revelation that El had eventually reverted to his original self and mourned his loss over Elda. The idea was really sweet. I only wish he could have lived long enough to be with her always.

What I don’t understand, though, is Maki’s reaction to hearing Karin’s secret. Does she not think anything of her best friend turning out to be a vampire?! Come on, that oughtta spark some reaction, right? I know the point is that she accepts Karin for who she is no matter what, but finding out your best friend likes human blood is a pretty big deal. At least she got to confess, though. And Winner’s panicked response was pretty cute. :D But, hell yeah, girl! That’s the way to do it! I’m proud of Maki, even if she picked a loser like Winner. (Pun intended!) And he remembered her name! *squee!*
