Katanagatari – 04

“Dancing like a butterfly, stinging like a bee, consume like a praying mantis and dying like a bug.”

Never underestimate flower power

What an atmospheric episode. Katanagatari continues to intrigue me with the direction it is taking, and the latest episode was, in one word, a blast.

Shichika chibified

It a total flip of the shounen genre, episode 4 totally disregards the preview we received at the end of episode 3, and almost completely focuses on Shichika’s sister Nanami, and her encounter with the Insect Squad of the Maniwa ninja corps. While this turn was unexpected, the resulting episode was still fantastic.

Moral of the story: cut your goddamn nails.

As usual of Katanagatari, the episode was laden with dialogue. In an unusual turn of events (but probably unsurprising to some), Nanami is shown to be quite the psycho, even making the Maniwani look positively bright. I guess this episode essentially centred upon the tragedy of the Insect Squad, and there was definitely quite a lot of dramatic irony in the fact that we, the viewers, knew which life direction they were heading towards, as we had seen the quick disposal of the previous members of the corps.

Seriously. What is with all this nature?!

Katanagatari has proved to be one of my favourite series this year, and it pains me that I’ll have to wait for a month for the next release~

Nanami's happy. Are you happy too?

    I want Hellsing. Gimme Hellsing NOW!
    I think the twist in this ep was pretty awesome. It was all happy and light the first 3 eps but now they’ve added quite a serious hit to all the viewers. So yes….I am happy. Like Nanami.

    I just watched this episode, and the staff were trolling us hard. I THOUGHT WE WERE GOING TO SEE SHICHIKA FIGHT HAKUHEI (judging by ep 3’s preview).

    I mean, the narrator even sort of admitted that the staff were trolling at the end. =.=”
