Katanagatari – 03

Don’t continue this useless resisitance. Admit your defeat. Kyotouryuu cannot match up to Sentouryuu. That’s the simple truth.

Umbrellas - they hurt

Another excellent episode. It was good to see that episode 3 took itself seriously, compared to the more humourous previous 2 episodes.

Are you thinking what I'm thinking?

As usual there was a tonne of dialogue, and small bursts of action. I feel that it’s deliberately done to great effect, playing on the old shounen-“I’m gonna talk for 2 millenia then attack you” curse, but in this case, the dialogue gives depth to the characters presented.

Ah the innuendo...

It’s also good to see that our ‘villain’ this week isn’t as much of a point of comedy compared to our previous two. Even though she’s not the most original character, the producer gave her some depth and interest.

Not how I'd like to end the day...

The music is also surprisingly great and the scores during the fight scenes are especially well-executed. It’s gonna be a big bummer waiting for a month for the next release >_<”

What's the point of 1000 swords when they're TIED TO TREES

    The 1000 swords seems pointless compared to the other 2 previous legendary swords. Ahh, another long wait for the next episode…

    I felt it is good though, they abbreviated some important settings… about Sentou Tsurugi and Sentouryu
    so I thought not a few people queriedabout their battle…

    well, got to expect next month’s intense battle against Strongest Samurai, Sabi Hakuhei (^^) preview is awsome

    yeah im annoyed at this whole delayed releases thing. it often puts of the wider audience, and doesn’t do storytelling any good

    actually im surprised we’re seeing Hakuhei next episode!

    Its kinda like Bakemonogatari at the moment, having to wait i dont know how long for the next episode, well mind you, Katanagatari is 50 mins long thought.

    Hope the action in the preview is just a sample and not the feast.

    yeah they share the same author. i just really feel for the ppl who picked up this series thinking it was the typical shounen action fest.
