back with the second episode for the night in my catch-up routine, C³: CubexCursedxCurious. The plot is in full swing and conflict is hard to avoid, with the Knights of Gathering out to destroy not only Fear, but Konoha as well and even Haruaki if he gets in their way. Kirika is filled in now on cursed tools as well…wish I was.
We get properly introduced to Peavey’s auxiliary sent from the Knights, the “Mummy Maker”, Amanda. Though she didn’t stay for long, as Peavey kills Amanda after learning that she tried to ask Fear to hand herself over before Peavey had a chance to fight them. Using Amanda’s blood, Peavey activates her second Waas, “Dance Time”…
Haruaki and the others are worried about Fear, she seems to lose control whenever her “strange side” comes out, attacking everything instinctually, even nearly drilling Konoha into the ground. For their safety, Haruaki and Konoha ask Fear to stand aside and not fight when Peavey returns to finish what she started. But, seeing her friends pinned down, Fear decides that she’s just selfish, and can’t just stand aside while others are fighting for her.
What really sticks out to me in this episode was when Hauraki mentions that cursed tools were cursed by humans, and that he wants to help them, is this, perhaps, subtley dropping backstory to the history of the cursed tools? I really hope they fully explain them soon, but, to be honest, I’d be fine just watching Fear switch from cute moe-queen to certified B.A. to kick Peavey’s butt.
If you don’t watch next week’s episode, she’ll curse you :3
