So… I haven’t really been writing much other than Vampire Detective. It’s pretty much the only Korean drama I’m caught up on week after week. I’m woefully behind on other shows, and it’s mainly because I’ve been on a bit of an anime binge lately. I have not watched so much anime since probably high school, and I must admit there’s a bit of a nostalgia factor for me here. (Oh the days when I wanted to learn Japanese!)
So what anime have I been watching? Well.. here goes…
Well, with this episode we’re finally getting somewhere when it comes to the overarching plot line. It’s a bit of a tenuous link to the case of the week, but I don’t particularly hate it. Not when we finally meet Lee Chung Ah in this episode!
A little better than last week’s case, but that’s not saying much. This week San and company must figure out the puzzle of a dead gangster boss to see where his inheritance goes. It’s a bit obvious what the solution is, even though the show tries to make the path to the conclusion an interesting one. One thing I have to appreciate after seeing these past couple of episodes is that the writer is working very hard to tie in each case to the over-arching plot. San is just so lucky to get the right cases at the right time here.
In this episode, San learns more about his powers while helping a reporter resolve her past. It’s not your typical case, as the client doesn’t really help the investigators very much with their investigation. In fact, I was a bit puzzled by it and it took me a couple of watches to really understand what was going on. However, it’s a very good episode in introducing us to San’s powers. He’s just as new to them as we are.
