Katanagatari – 02

“However, by that point you’ll have been torn into pieces.”

An awesome 'fight'

Katanagatari continues it’s humorous and entertaining form with a second episode playing upon catchphrases and the unique ‘edges’ that flesh out side-characters in a shounen series.

Never eat something that's past it's expiry date!

The structure of the second episode was very much the same as the first: talk first, then action later. Though I enjoyed both halves, I can see a lot of viewers getting frustrated at a series that, on first impressions, looks like the generic action-filled, sword-clashing anime we’re used to. This is clearly NOT the case.

Must... Eat... Brains...

The first half fleshed out the story to come, introducing Uneri Ginkaku, a ronin (rogue samurai) who holds Zantou Zerosen, the katana that could allegedly slice through anything. He lives in his castle Gekoku, which lies in the desertified Inaba.

Everyone loves chibi~ ❤

Some very humourous dialogue on those corny catchphrases often seen in shounen was a highlight. Also, the perks that make side-characters unique were also played upon. It should be noted that the humour in Katanagatari isn’t the type which makes you bawl out with laughter, but rather the stuff that brings a nice smile to your face.

Zerg rushing... it never wins.

Katanagatari has started out very well, and it will a difficult wait for the next episode (March 8), seeing that each is released monthly.

Flower power!
