First episode that I can say I really enjoyed. I thought this is what this show needs, It doesn’t need fillers about lolis going around town or crappy fights that end with only one shot and much less weak character development. It needs more ass kicking, hopefully Cecily getting hers kicked and definitely more battles like these where at least they manage to fool me into thinking that one of the good guys might die for real. At some point I fooled myself into thinking that this a much weaker version of Claymore. It made me think that the 5, now 6 episodes that I’ve watched of Sacred Blacksmith wasn’t in vain.
Unfortunately, midway it goes back to being what it was before, in other words something less awesome of what I was actually watching. As usual Cecily is saved by Luke and the three brutal assassins are actually some loli princess’s babysitters. Disappointing how some possible ‘bad guys’ are turned into normal characters which I’m sure will be for comedic valuable than anything. Too bad, they were cool for the first half of the episode at least.
Although some mandatory bashing is necessary because CECILE CAMPBELL (someone likes her own name too much) won’t stop being a noob for keep relying on others, having weak fighting skills plus having a retarded armor, I was actually surprised that she managed herself for a couple of good minutes. She might won the fight it wasn’t three against one. In the end, it was too much for her but she did OK all things considered. She ain’t no Claire or Gattsu so there was no way she could’ve won anyway. But hey, at least there weren’t any jokes relating to her breasts for once.
