That was a little fast. How Evil are the 10th and 11th episodes of Nil Admirari no Tenbin? (Yes, I remembered to correct the name this time.)
A lot of things happened in these two episodes, lots of things were revealed maybe a little too much for two episodes. I’m just going to come out and say it this feels so rushed right now. We have two brothers fighting because one is the son of a raped women and the other one is of noble birth. Which somehow makes the one born because of rape less of a man even though he’s the one in the right.
And to make matters worse the noble one wants to rape the main character just like his dad raped his half-brother’s mom because he is destined to be like his dad. How does that make any sense at all? Well anyway, the good guys did manage to save Tsugumi from the madman so I guess that makes it a little better.
And then we have the professor, this guy has creeped me out since we first saw him and he still has that effect. Hisui cornered him and got a little more than he bargained for. The professor psyched him out by telling him everything he didn’t want to know about how his mother died which caused Hisui to activate his flame powers and almost incinerate the professor. Hisui managed to stop himself just in time to spare the professor but the professor shoots him and gets away.
Soon after escaping Hisui, however, he has a run-in with the fire god group’s leader who holds him at gunpoint for a while. The professor starts talking about his past and practically brags about raping the Raven guys wife. He then makes a startling statement to his captor.
His words do sting a little bit enough for it to become a standoff until the girl he rapped ends up pointing a gun at him too. Just to be clear his own son and the mother of his son are out to kill him. Do you see why I sad this was rushed yet? We just know to get all of this out of the blue but wait, there’s more.
The professor still manages to escape on a burning hot air balloon. There is some good news though The entire Raven organization has been destroyed. And the Professor is no exception to that. He survived his flight but someone dropped a handwritten book in front of him which caused him to kill himself.
Turns out there was more than one person in Fukurou with a secret. Remember the caretaker of the tomes? He’s apparently the final boss and it looks like he plans on taking out Tsugumi and her brother. Overall I’d say these episodes are about as Evil as a Villain (9). Even though it feels rushed to me I will hold my concerns until the last episode. If you want something with a bit more action check out CVoyages reviews for Black Clover. Well, that’s all I have for you today. Thanks for letting me waste your time, people.
