The enemy of my enemy is still my enemy apparently. How evil is Ifini-T Force episode 5?
This episode was kind of a roller coaster. We had Raja Khan a monstrous creature, who somehow managed to bond with Emi over daddy issues. His backstory was pretty much the same as Casshern. They both gave up their humanity to save the world, only to be despised by the very people they sought to protect. While Casshern still looks human, Khan wasn’t so lucky. The difference between them is how they choose to respond to the adversity. Casshern used the powers his father gave him to defeat the animosity towards himself. While Khan became disillusioned with his world and ended up hating his own father. They are alike, yet also different.
Kahn also shared similarities with Emi. Kahn, while his world was still around, had no wishes or hope. He only wanted death. Emi is that way in the first episode. We finally got some feeling out of her after her friend’s disappearance. Emi actually says that if she were to die now she would die a terrible person for not feeling anything for the loss of her friend… At least she feels guilty now.
Kahn himself is a strange animal. He wants to build a utopia by, get this, making everyone deformed. That’s not creepy at all. (Chris: Um… kinda the point, yes?) When they go to what’s left of his world, there are disfigured animals everywhere in a destroyed city. It’s pretty much a ruined nightmare. That’s right, not even nature is safe. It reminded me of God Eater’s setting a lot.
The most terrifying thing about Kahn is how fast he took out most of the team. He basically knocked out 3 of the 4 heroes in a single move. The only reason Casshern was okay is that he’s not human, and that fight was cool. It wasn’t as flashy as some of the fights before, but it wasn’t terrible.
Overall this episode was more about the characters. The fight was secondary this time. We did get the return of the so-called “Paragon of Evil.” He literally stopped a hero from transforming. So I guess the next episode starts in a fight with a powerless hero defending Emi. I have a bad feeling about that one. Anyway, this episode was about as evil as a Killer Robot Army. We had some growth from Emi and more from Casshern. It’s a little strange that the human seems less human than a machine, but that’s probably going to change.

Well, that’s all I have for you today. Thanks for letting me waste your time, people.
Keep It Classy,
