Darling in the Franxx Episode 6 - Anime Review

In this episode we got again glorious battle scenes, which were expertly animated by Studio Trigger and A1-Pictures. However, with this episode I am quite worried for the future of this series. Hiro’s tumour just vanished, without any consequences for our protagonist. I hope that the characters of this series don’t get a to big of a Plot-Armor, which would ruin the vibe of this 24-episode long anime. Having said that, I am very pleased with this episode and I am looking forward to next week.

Synopsis


So, the battle begins. The two plantations are being attacked by a huge number of Klaxosaurus. Ichigo and Goro have both reservations about Hiro. We see the squad preparing to fight in the FranXX. I have noticed how all the team members have some kind of trouble with the upcoming fight. Ichigo especially, she still thinks that Hiro might die in the battle. As they prepare, Ichigo is able to talk for a short time with Hiro. They are able to put some things straight. I believe it is the first time Ichigo had really the opportunity to work at least a bit trough her feelings. However, Zero Two is always there to get Hiro’s attention. After a brief montage of the teams heading out to the battle field, we see the superior experience of the 26-ers. Our main characters notice that too. They struggle to fight four small Klaxosaurs. I will not go in depth in to the fight scenes because there are pretty much straight forward. The action is very well animated and overall extremely enjoyable. Before getting into battle themselves, Hiro and Zero Two have a short discussion. Hiro asks the pink-haired girl why she fights against the Klaxosaurus. Zero Two responds with a hint to her Klaxosaur blood. She says: “Because I am a monster, maybe?”
Now, Zero Two and Hiro enter the battle as well. However, the “infection” of Hiro gets worse and he struggles to keep up with Strelezia and Zero Two. After finishing off all the small Klaxosaurus, they are beginning to take on the big one. But, even the experienced team struggles, when the big Klaxosaurus transforms into its true form. The team leader of team 26 runs out of fuel and is saved by Zorome. With the defeat of the team 26, its now on our main characters to save the day. Due to battle, the horrible growth on Hiro’s body gets worse and he passes out. Strelezia transforms in to its Stampede form and everybody thinks that Hiro died.



This causes Goro and Ichigo to lose their connection as well. While unconscious, Hiro has a dream. In this dream he gets confronted by Naomi with his character flaws. After regaining consciousness, he is able to calm down Zero Two, who was fighting on her own. Hero’s tumour vanishes, and they are able to reconnect, which allows them to defeat the huge Klaxosaur in an epic way.

Themes


- Hiro gets his groove back.
- We see Zero Two struggling.
- Hiro found another reason to pilot the FranXX: He wants to be the “wings” of Zero Two.

Verdict


In this episode we got again glorious battle scenes, which were expertly animated by Studio Trigger and A1-Pictures. However, with this episode I am quite worried for the future of this series. Hiro’s tumour just vanished, without any consequences for our protagonist. I hope that the characters of this series don’t get a to big of a Plot-Armor, which would ruin the vibe of this 24-episode long anime. Having said that, I am very pleased with this episode and I am looking forward to next week.

OMG! Kokoro is such a bad girl! This week’s episode is mainly focused on Mitsuru and Kokoro. Their character development is amazing. I had a grudge against Mitsuru because of his dick-move in episode 3. However, after seeing this episode I think he is in fact a good guy. Adding to that, the Kokoro x Mitsuru ship is sailing strong!

Wow! Wow! Wow! We finally get to see Meliodas very emotional. To be honest, I almost chocked up seeing the heart wrenching scenes with Liz. In my opinion, this was the best and most emotional episode of Nanatsu no Taizai yet. I am so pumped up to see the Seven Deadly Sins develop even more.

This week’s episode was very enjoyable. This iteration of the Seven Deadly Sins was split into two parts. The first half was rather emotional with the back story of Ban and Zhivago and second was more light-hearted. However, at the end, the story got more and more tense, escalating into the confrontation by King of Meliodas and his past with the Ten Commandments.

In this week, we get a Zorome focused episode. I didn’t quite enjoy this episode as much as the last one, which was really epic. However, there was a lot of world building and clarifications on the purpose of adults in this world. Zorome had a lot of screen time in which he had a lot of development.

Nanatsu no Taizai 2 is still going strong with this episode. This wasn’t my favourite episode so far, but it doesn’t mean it won’t get better in the future. I am definitely hyped to see the upcoming epic fight.

The tale of fanservice continues for our mech pilots. Sexuality and nudity are the main themes in this episode. After a wardrobe failure, the girls are trying to keep their distance from the boys. However, Zero Two, being best-girl, is doing everything she can to sabotage all the effort by the girls, which results in formidable and enjoyable situations. Man, I would do terrible things to be Hiro.

Wow, wow, wow! This episode had so much going on. The romantic tensions in the last episodes got finally their pay off. And damn, it was beautiful to see Goro coping with his feelings for Ichigo. I admit, I am completely addicted to this show!

Here we have it! I believe it’s safe to say that Darling in the FranXX is the anime of the season. There were so many things going on in this episode. The romance is better than in most dedicated romance-anime, the cinematography is as good as “Eureka Seven” and the action is breath-taking.
