Dantalian no Shoka & KamiMemo Episode 6,7 – And The Lolis Keep Rolling In
Kami Sama no Memochou
Well, I urge all my readers to drop any expectations of me ever understanding this current arc. From what I can pick up, it’s about a conflict in the past between the Fourth, Souichiro, and this Yu Gi Oh wannabe (About an illegal immigrant, no less). Not that the idea is horrible in any way. The only thing that stands between me and this show is how droll everything is. I find no excitement at all in any of Alice’s “deductions” or in Narumi. He’s one of the worst protagonists I’ve ever encountered. Then again, he’s the first self-sacrificial male lead to pop up ever since I’ve started this blog. I guess the timing is really what killed Narumi. Had he appeared back when I was nothing but a viewer, he possibly could have been well-liked by moi.

That has got to be the ugliest clash of colors that I’ve ever seen in a post, but let’s just stick with it. I don’t want to go digging in my pictures folder for a more “aesthetically pleasing” collage of colors. I mean, hey, you’re not here just for the pictures, are you? You could have fooled me.
Anyways, for those among you that have been paying attention to the opening segment in this show, you should have noticed that the two characters that this episode focuses on are in it. They are Hal Komhout and Flamberge, a Key Keeper and his Forbidden Library (I really don’t know what to call Flamberge and Dalian). They’re an interesting foil for Dalian and Huey as they show a different balance of power. While Huey concedes to whatever Dalian does, Hal is firm and unforgiving when it comes to matters of gravity. Hal and Flamberge work less as a team and more like a craftsman and his tools, Flamberge being the tool. You can bet a penny or two that Huey and Hal won’t see eye to eye on certain things.
Oh, and before I sign out, Dalian was shown with a blonde haired man in the flashback. She had noticeably shorter hair as well as an anti-human sentiment. Dalian made a remark about how humans were stupid about war and such. And I don’t blame her. She’s been a shut-in her whole life (How old is she?) and has only books to refer to. Huey’s grandfather looks surprisingly young, or maybe it’s someone else entirely.
Maybe Dalian’s behind a few of the overarching plot points in this story. I wouldn’t put it past her since she’s surprisingly calloused and selfish. I also wouldn’t deny the possibility that she’s more than a few decades old. There’s always that un-aging character in a show (Usually the girl) with a mysterious past. She may appear all docile now, but just wait until things start to heat up. You’ve been warned! That is, if it turns out to be right.
And what’s up with the funky eyepatch?
