Shikabane Hime Kuro Episode 1

Allright, sorry to spoil you guys by blogging this episode while Aka isn't finished yet, but here comes!

Kuro starts with the rugged priest and the feisty girl talking with a bald man who wants them to kill Makina.

While we get to see the betrayer priest treated like shit by his non-human comrades. I don't envy him, and AFAIK, he deserves every single bit of it. He tries to ask them about why they want to invade the main temple now.

Then they drop an important fact!

The scene shifts back to the temple, where Keisei's dad and Kamika are talking about Makina's situation. They are talking about this purification thing, and how Makina must undergo it before she turns into a corpse, and how he doesn't want her to die.

Meanwhile, the horribly dressed woman and her midget Hime try to enter Makina's isolation chamber... The priests initially resist until...

Owned, bitches!

They enter the chamber and see Makina slowly being devoured by spirits who feed on the red spots on her body.

Midget decides to attack the ghosts to help Makina but....

However, Kamika crashes the party for a rescue!

They exit safely, but fail to gat Makina. Outside, they discuss this thing called Rune and how it relates to the ghosts that eat her. But there is a strange creature watching them!

Oh no. They are jumping the shark

Meanwhile, somebody is playing boob tease far away...

Back to the temple, Ori is training to become a full-fledged priest.

Here he is, along with other trainees talking about light and bonds to other creatures. In his case, the rabbit which doesn't seem to cooperate with him in any way.

No. Just no.

The nonsense continues for the next 5 minutes or so, until the scene in which the betrayer priest attempts to invade the chamber where Makina lay. However, he gets stuffed by the rugged priest and his rifle-wielding Hime.

But the betrayer priest calls his inhumans as reinforcement

While the guard priests all turn into corpses and mutter something about Makina being impure, and how it taints them.

Despite this,Ouri eventually sees the link, and Makina finally accepts him as her new contractor priest.


- The episode started strong. It already had the basic plot established in the first series.
- The moe fanservice bitch single handedly ruined the episode.
- Kamika is not an antagonist.
- The war is not over. In fact, this is just the beginning.
- Heroes aren't disproportionately weak. They are at least as strong as the enemies.

Series picked up. Tune in next episode!
