This just wasn’t a good episode. It’s mediocre at best. You’d probably get more action reading Top 10 Shark Attack stories than watching this. The humor remains consistent though, I chuckled at couple of scenes but that’s pretty much it.
This felt very juvenile. While the last two episodes had certain cliches, the overall feel was refined. This episode lost that refinement. It’s good to see a sillier side to Yukio though, he’s always appears to be superior to Rin in all areas but this shows that Rin can still be the older brother. I like the fact that he’s a good cook, a trait you don’t see in most shounen leads. After all, shounen leads are the characters young boys are supposed to look up and it’s nice to see Ao no Exorcist going: HEY, YOU CAN BE GAR IN AN APRON TOO, MAN.
You guys have no idea how much I’ve wanted to do this to Yukio.
It’s great they showed more of the True Cross Academy, but I’m not a big fan of school settings to begin with so I kind of don’t care if the food is expensive guys. Overall, not a very good episode for Ao no Exorcist. It would’ve been much better off as an Iron Chef parody. Instead, it tried making me feel bad for annoying, obsessive fangirls. No. That’s not how it works.
I still enjoy this series though, it takes more than one lousy episode to deter my faith.
