Episode 6.5 was a complete recap so it is time to move forward onto episode 7!  I really liked the episode because it showed off the teaming up of Favaro and Kaisar astonishingly well against the demon Azazel in his attempts at capturing Amira!

The invasion of the city by the demons played off wonderfully against the comedy side of this–  all hell is breaking loose and Amira is hidden away in the castle stuffing herself and drinking.  Rita’s reactions while staying calm and practical are hilarious and probably one of Miyuki Sawashiro’s best seiyu roles this year!

Favaro wants to protect Amira because he just wants to get rid of his tail and out of his lying about Helhiem.  Kaisar chooses to protect her out of duty:  a simple reason but definitely a reason that makes the fight alongside bandit Favaro all the more entertaining!  Love the part where Favaro mentions its a battle between demons.

From the beginning we’ve had two really opposite male characters that are gradually being pushed into being more alike in ideals and personalities than ever before and it was the final fight on the top of the castle that illustrated this to such great lengths!

Have to hand it to Hiroshi Kobayashi for putting together a really strong storyboard on an awesome episode here:  we’ve got the swashbuckling adventure that we had in the beginning and it really shines now that the two leads work together!  This guy does really good stuff in terms of developing a story for anime as one of the best episodes [5] of Kill la Kill was done by him:  the introduction of Tsumugu Kingase!

OVERALL IMPRESSION: 8/10
