Kimi zu Boku no Saigo no Senjou - Chapter 8: The transcendent demon
An explosion shakes the tower of Ollelugan Prison, where Mismis, Jhin and Nene are. Without knowing exactly what is happening, until they are contacted by Risya, who informs them that Iska is not in this place, they have to flee without being caught. However, the explosion drew a large number of guards, which is why Mismis is used as a decoy to get their attention and allow Nene and Jhin to look after them.
The riot in Ollelugan causes Alice to approach the prison as an extremely dangerous astral user is imprisoned in the location. Say goodbye to Iska and leave him a new handkerchief in exchange for what he once lent him. Iska, still handcuffed and alone in the room, discovers that his phone has been left there and realizes it after receiving a call from Captain Mismis. Shortly afterwards he also notices that the key to his handcuffs was in the fabric, which frees itself and also goes to Ollelugan.
When he arrives at Ollelugan prison, he meets Mismis, Jhin and Nene and gets their astral swords. However, instead of running away with them, he asks them time to attend to something.
Poke a hole and two more will appear
Honestly, the plot of Kimi to Boku no Saigo no Senjou has had many holes for action in its chapters. And every time they manage to create a situation to understand this hole, they create an even bigger one. I can't assure you that this is the work of the adaptation, or really the plot of the light novel. However, I realize that in either case, all I can see is how they go downhill in this regard, crossing the line between the acceptable and the absurd.
in the previous episodes Pretty important story holes could be seen at the time. Although some didn't appear until a few chapters later. In Kimi to Boku no Saigo no Senjou - Chapter 8 showed one that is generated in seconds, the "security" of the highest level prison. Something that includes not just Ollelugan Prison but the entire province of 13, Alcatraz.
This sector of sovereignty is believed to have thrived thanks to serving as a prison for criminals from many parts, including other nations, and of course some which, in Salinger's case, were even quite dangerous. Even so, the Empire managed to infiltrate Alcatraz, and Ollelugan in particular, very easily.
Although there are some things that I can personally save based on my curiosity, such as why Risya has the citizenship of sovereignty. The truth is that mostly the act of Kimi to Boku no Saigo no Senjou It wasn't at all what I expected. One in ten events in the story seems interesting and coherent to me, the other nine seem like a poorly planned and / or poorly executed mess.
Of course, it didn't get to the point of not wanting to watch the series anymore. She still has the "I don't know what" which makes me see her through to the end just to see if she can explain everything right.
in the Kimi to Boku no Saigo no Senjou - Chapter 8 I realized that this is the first time that an antagonist has appeared as such. While Alice / Iska were technically each other's antagonists, the fact was that their relationship was so vague and had too much evidence to make them seem more like a romantic couple than deadly enemies. An antagonist as such has never emerged. One who really was a villain that both protagonists are involved in in some way. Nameless and Kissing were very short if these characters wanted to represent an antagonist for Alice and Iska, respectively.
A similar case to that of the founder, in which both protagonists were involved, but their little time on stage and their little epicity in battle don't see me as anything other than a filler figure. Without having the meaning it could have been. His appearance did not highlight the hostility Alice and Iska should have, nor did he induce them to form an alliance with one another.
But Salinger has at least enough influence to make the 'Witch of the ice disaster'Show' fear 'to him. Besides the opportunity to see Iska much more seriously in battle, even more so than when he first met Alice.
Of course, her personality felt a little confused. He has that hideous touch of looking for more power, something typical and expected for a villain. However, he also seems to have a deeper mindset to better understand his "villainy", something like how he did these acts for the sake of sovereignty. An incomplete (failed) attempt by a villain with a hero complex. At the moment he seemed like a poorly trained antihero to me.
Ultimately, the fact that he first sensed the presence of an antagonist Kimi to Boku no Saigo no Senjou - Chapter 8 is unfortunate. After all, two thirds of the series have already aired and it barely shows a character who can be viewed as an antagonist. I hope so in the rest of the episodes of Kimi to Boku no Saigo no Senjou balance the scale a little. And it doesn't end up as a complete disaster in the plot and character development.
