Inuyashiki – Episode 9 Recap (Is It Evil?)
Chris, you were on the money with this one. How Evil is Inuyashiki, episode 9?
Well, Hiro didn’t free the criminals. He decided to declare war on the entire nation of Japan instead. At first, it seemed like it might be a nice tame episode for, what, three minutes? Then Hiro hacked a bunch of TVs and Jumbotrons and declared war on every living person in Japan. What lead to this? Well, the police chasing him started it. It seems that the last straw was when that girl who liked him rejected him. We don’t even know if he killed her. So, he’s basically throwing a temper tantrum.
Anyway, after the declaration, Hiro started a killing spree. He got 35 kills before Inuyashiki could step in and interrupt it. And he did that with Ando’s help. The duo warned others that Hiro was killing using cell phones… which they never explain. So… yeah. Inuyashiki hacked the phones so Ando could warn people. Turns out that wasn’t a great idea either. Hiro heard the warning and now thinks Ando is his primary target. Also, it wasn’t long before Hiro used the TVs instead. Here’s the result of that.
He vowed to kill 1,000 people a day after bragging about this. So, I guess he never really wanted to stop before. Hiro is just evil. I tried to figure out why he’s doing this but, apparently, this doesn’t even make him feel alive anymore. I can understand if he feels trapped, but he did this to himself.
Inuyahshiki needs to hurry up and git gud with his powers already before this show gets renamed “Hiro’s Victims.” I have a feeling they’re using the whole “it takes older people longer to adapt to technology” thing a bit too literally. Hiro adjusted to his body by the second episode. This is episode nine. Come on, the old man should be able to at least combat Hiro a little better by now.
I don’t have many gripes with this show. I think I only have two so far. Hiro never being left alone to try and become peaceful and Inuyashiki always seeming weaker than Hiro. Neither of my gripes are that problematic, they just rub me slightly the wrong way. They didn’t need to do the same thing twice. Hiro was already unstable. If this show is a little too much for you, believe me, it has been on a few episodes for me, as well. There are some that are much tamer. If you still want action, but not all the bloodshed this series offers, check out my Infini- T Force recaps.
This episode is still not as bad as the one were Hiro killed that one family. At least his victims were one-shot in this one. Overall I would say this episode was about as evil as a Killer Robot Army.
Well, that’s all I have for you today. Thanks for letting me waste your time, people.
Keep It Classy,
