We pick things up the next day with Tuesday living with Carole. In the morning Carole wakes up for another of her part time jobs, and what is noticeable is that Carole has a great fashion sense. On her way out she notices just how much of a mess they had made the night before, so asks Tuesday to clean things up in the meantime. Right away, if you have seen any story where a privileged individual attempts to clean, then you can guess what happens next. Tuesday attempts to clean only to end up making the mess even worse than it already was. The best part about this episode is Carole at her part time job. The description is simply to mourn the death of an individual, an odd job to say the least. The events that transpire is hilarious to say the least.
By the time episode ten passed I had thought the surprises would be over, and how wrong I was. This episode is comprised of people standing and talking, coupled with Charce’s flashbacks to his childhood. We find that the story that he made up in a previous episode is not quite true. I say not quite, because the events loosely resemble those that actually occurred in his life. By manipulating the memory he made it so that it would be easier for him to lie at the time. As most good lies go, there is a hint of truth to them that makes them believable, this allows for the delivery at the time to be far more natural to the character. The confession here is a perfect example of that principle in practice.
The villains find out about about the previous battle that involved Philly, and report it to the main villain. They are all interesting enough for me to know that they are villains that look cool, with a total lack of any desire to remember their names, and with us passing the midway point of the show, this is incredibly concerning. If the villains are not interesting enough, then the level of engagement is only going to be dropped further and further. Regardless, the main villain does main villain things when the information is presented to him, threatening his own people and what not. The usual really. Thus far, while I have made comparisons between this show and others, the further into this show I get, the more I am starting to realize that I should be watching the shows that I am referencing instead of this. The main villain is incredibly one dimensional despite a strong opening.
The first thing that is noticeable about the show is that it is beautiful to look at. The backgrounds are incredibly detailed, the cityscape at night shown at the end of the episode is breathtaking to look at, and the characters all have really interesting designs that stand out from each other. In fact, even if you are not able to remember who the character is, there is no doubt that you would be able to pick them out, and recognize who it is from a glance. Interestingly enough there are references to real world musicians, and impressively, many of the instruments have recognisable brand names. This goes to show how much money was spent to get the rights for the names to be used in the show.
After the epic fight that took place in the woods against the spider clan and the surprisingly heartfelt end to that story arc, we find Tanjiro and his sister in a precarious situation. Both Tanjiro and Nezuko are taken to the headquarters of the Demon Slayer Corps, and the two of them are supposed to be executed as a result of Tanjiro breaking the rules of the corps and travelling with a demon, while Nezuko is a demon herself. Tomioka of the Hashira is also to be reprimanded for protecting Tanjiro and Nezuko.
The lack of food is once again affecting Philly, so much so that he tries his best to get roadkill by driving the car into a field to chase after a wild animal. As far as comedy goes, it was perfectly fine, granted it did not get me to laugh, however the effort to even try it was present. It was fine. He does crash, forcing Philly to stop the rampage, and it is here where we are told that Philly is conspiring to trade Sam and Casey so that he would be able to get rid of debt.
