With this episode the Byajuya Gang Arc ends. I find it fantastic, that Boruto: Naruto Next Generations turned the drama up to eleven. The fight scenes where epic and enjoyable. However, I still think the main villain is a bit bland. Nevertheless, it was a great episode!

Synopsis


This episode starts right away with the action. Boruto and Shikadai are still following Ryogi after the big robbery of last episode. On The train the main characters are facing off Ryogi and the leader of the Gang. After a short standoff, Boruto starts shooting some ninja stars at the thieves but Ryogi, like the loyal subordinate he is, deflects them with ease. Furthermore, he is able to block the path by using an ice jutsu. However, Ryogi is overcome by a strong head ache. The leader of the bandits has obviously use a genjutsu to control the mind of Ryogi. In the ice cage, where Boruto and Shikadai are trapped, our ninjas are starting to fight each other under the influence of their illusions.



However, Shikadai notices the genjutsu quickly and is able to convince Boruto not to fight him. After solving this problem and breaking free from the ice cage, the main characters are continuing to follow the fugitives. Once Boruto and Shikadai catch up to the bandits, Ryogi turns in to full beat mode. He is obviously seeing illusions. He believes that Shikadai is the one who killed his father and mother.



After an epic fight they are able to defeat Ryogi and convince him to do the right thing and to face the consequences for his actions. After the fight, they realize that the leader got away. However, the Hokage personally intervenes in to the fighting and defeats the Byakuya Gang once and for all. In the end, Ryogi and the leader are both sent to prison.

Themes


- Ryogi is being mind controlled by his leader.
- The power of friendship. Because of the friendship with Shikadai, Ryogi decides to do the right thing and to face the consequences for his actions.

Verdict


Boruto: Naruto Next Generation really turned up the drama with this episode. However, I still have the feeling that the main villain is quite bland. He is just that one selfish guy who does evil things just for his own gain. However, the fight scene between Shikadai and Ryogi was epic and very enjoyable. I am looking forward to seeing next week’s episode.

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.

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.

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.

Nanatsu no Taizai is still going strong with this episode. The power of the ten commandments is continuing to grow and King is fighting against the huge golem, who threatens to destroy the forest. I am very pleased with this episode.

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.

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.

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.

This was the first episode of Violet Evergarden to deliver the same level of spectacle and emotional intensity as the premiere. The final moments came almost out of nowhere, even if they have been foreshadowed for a while.
