One thing I found particularly funny yet somewhat ironic was that Bokutachi no Blog would sometimes get more daily views on the days we don’t update rather than on the days we do update. You can shoot me if I’m wrong, but that’s just… funny. Anyways, ever seen one of those movies where all the actions takes place in a small setting? Well, this episode of Dance in the Vampire Bund certainly made use of that and it did not disappoint. Although in the estate, it was tight, mysterious, and kept me on the edge of my seat… or that’s what I would say had I not gotten hungry for a midnight snack.
So what happened..?
So the summary itself is very short. We start right away at Vampire Bund with Mina announcing to the world that she is ready to hold the press conference to announce her land. A man… no, a vampire noble named Juneau Dormail (haha dormail) becomes head of the security on the island while the press continues to flock. And this episode would get boring if they didn’t find out that a vampire had sneaked onto the island with a C4. For those of you who do not know what that is, you either a) are noobs b) are silly or c) never played Counterstrike or COD before – it’s a bomb that can make a biiiiiiiiig boom.
So anyways, Mina still decides to go on with the press conference and announces that she was able to obtain the island because she helped Japan pay off… wow, ONE QUADRILLION YEN amount of debt. That’s… $10 trillion, 5 trillion Euros, or 4.5 trillion Pounds. Wow, if I had that kind of money… but Akira traces some light-gel and it’s funny because all the journalists were human when they entered the island, so that means one of them got bitten recently. Ironically as Mina announces that she’s the vampire lord, a female journalist shouts that she has the C4 trigger but Akira stops her and Vera kills her with some steak. Oops, that made me hungry… stake. The bomb gets discarded into an underground area-ish thingy and Mina announces that as long as each side is cool, there will be no problems.
As an episode conclude, we get introduced to Fangless, kids who are vampires that don’t have to lives the lives of vampires so they are persecuted. And that leaves us asking “What’s underground?”
Yeah, I liked it although it wasn’t anything that special. It wasn’t as bad as the first episode yet certainly wasn’t as good as the third. It feels somehow that the characters have changed since, because Mina went from hopeless vampire girl (ep. 3) to confident vampire lord (ep. 4) with almost no transition.
And how does Akira manage the transition of life-styles so easily? *sigh*The episode was still entertaining to watch although it certainly didn’t present anything out of the ordinary. But for a big-project anime, it should certainly appease more. Ah well, keep watchin’.
