Juni Taisen (Zodiac War) is the ultimate showing of a program peaking too soon and then nose-diving off a cliff.
And so Juni Taisen ends and just as most of the season has been anti-climatic, so is Nezumi’s wish.
To some surprise, we won’t have to wait until the finale to learn who wins the 12th Juni Taisen – it’s in this episode.
Juni Taisen tries to go deeper, bring about some emotion and really make a death count. But is it too little too late?
Tora, or Kanae’s, backstory is gone into and while better than the twins, it doesn’t inspire much loyalty or sympathy.
We dive just a little bit more into the backstory of the Tsumita twins and while at first, it seems there maybe more to them than it appears, we are shown we couldn’t be more wrong.
The twins become the focus and honestly, you are left seriously wondering why they deserve to be in the Juni Taisen.
Juni Taisen tries to make up for its recently uneventful episodes by basically going back to its old way of handling characters’ deaths.
While the sheep is introduced properly, unfortunately, the action promised in the last episode turns out to be lackluster.
The cycle is broken! We get to know a character, to a point, and they don’t die!
