Yes, a bit more of action.

But... Exactly how did Tokioka die?

Man, Mika is one of the most annoying characters ever. All she does is cry instead of trying to step up and do something. She's had how many people die on her? At some point you draw the line and say, "I have to do something to stop this, even if I can't".

There's a distinct lack of a sense of struggle when Brandon is fighting Millennion. I think I'll be downgrading my rating of it now.

Haha, I know what you all mean about Mika. She's kinda like Raki from Claymore. All they really do is cry (but at least Raki carried a sword).

Lee had a point when he told Mika that he held no respect for a man who came back from the dead to protect the child of the woman he loved; a child that could and should have been his. Letting a pensioner have your woman and being swayed by his hypocritical sense of justice takes away a good few respect points.

The Bob and Lee boss battle sections of the series are the weakest parts, alongside the Blood War bit that took away from the otherwise The Godfather-esque rise and fall gangster backstory. Bob was always hard to take seriously and underveloped, and Lee's angry reaction to the death of a fatty - after he'd been shown slaughtering innocent people for fun - didn't sit well with me.

I really don't like the Superior's at all. They just look too over the top if you asked. I wish the creators would have stayed with humanoid shapes.

Slowly but surely Brandon is getting closer to Harry. It was a shame to see his old buddies from the gambling den die.

Damn, poor doctor..

Oh well, that fight was okay I guess but I also didn't like that Superior. Too egoistic and that ultimately caused him to fall.

Oh my God, Lee with his screaming and laughing, he was so annoying. Thank you Brandon for shutting him the hell up.

He kind of looked cool there with those yellow eyes, and seriously what's up with that happy soundtrack during the doctor's death. Oh and the girl needs to die, she isn't worth all this shit.

This sure was quite a nice episode packed with action! The end is in sight though so let's see what's next!

Jizzy as you would call yourself because youre a dick The most butthurt award goes to you And clearly you havent watched that many shows thats why you cant determine if a show is unique or not Or maybe you're just a child who likes common stuffs where hero saves the day and guys gets all the girls. Sad taste you have there kid you came up to me in the first place making you look more like a kid who got slapped without me even knowing it and start crying about it to me

That's exactly what I was thinking. It's like one of those soundtracks you hear on the special beach episodes, except it was playing while showing a corpse lol

This episode was pretty ok, maybe its the fact that lee and bobs friendship was never really at the forefront enough to justify lee's extreme almost cartoonish anger towards Brandon, but then again thirteen years did pass so you never know, well lets at least hope this series ends strongly.

Superiors are invincible! Until invincible normal nexhrolyzed Brandon shoots them with anti-superior bullets and they melt. Why didn't the doc send the bullets with Brandon in the first place? Cause it wouldn't of been cool that way. Why does Brandon have super guns that no one else has? Cause he's gotta be cool. If this anime wasn't a video game adaptation it'd be so much better. The 2nd half has lost everything the first did well and has completely turned into a nonsensical rule of cool action fest. Not awful as it is now but it's definitely a big drop in quality.

Now practically everyone who was carefully characterized so we care about them have little role in the story, were desecrated and turned into a 1D evil boy, or is dead. Mika is boring, Grave is a boring invincible action man running on the idea of protection(which is cool in itself but it's not enough), the Doctor was alright and probably the best current character, and the league of evil is either hardly in it, or a 1D evil shell of their former self. I probably won't post again until episode 26.

I liked the music. The clarinet(?) and the steel drum interacting with each other sounded pleasant, but it just didn't match the tone at all.
