While an inconsistent villain presence does sometimes plague “Gleipnir,” in terms of character investment and story? It goes beyond expectations.
In what hopefully is just the season finale, not series finale, Shuichi gets a glimpse of his past and encounters the only one who can provide answers: Elena.
Shuichi’s past, as well as Elena’s and their friends, is revealed – thus answering a handful of questions.
After the massacre of Madoka’s group, all eyes are on Clair and Shuichi. Which leads to the question of what started all this, and must it end in bloodshed?
With everyone outnumbered and their lives threatened, it is determined something drastic must be done – leading to the death of a group member.
Shuichi and Clair’s group encounter gatherers who are perverted, dangerous, and ready to fight – thus leading to Yota revealing his skill.
For those who missed getting a ton of ecchi from “Gleipnir,” they compensate this episode. But, alongside that, a magnifying glass is put on Shuichi that leads to a notable reveal.
As we encounter a member of Elena’s crew, Shuichi not only creates a new monstrous transformation but reveals what may have been a suppressed memory.
Thanks to a little blackmail, Clair finds a group of gatherers that might have some information. However, the initiation process is a bit uncomfortable – even for her.
For the first time in what feels like forever, Shuichi and Claire find themselves in a battle. One they maybe outclassed in.
