"Tsubasa Chronicle" 24

Subject: Noir
Okay, I managed to somewhat break free of my usual round of "marathon hangover" yesterday, though I still wound up with too much "'Noir' on the brain" to feel like blogging about it when I did. So y'all have been stuck with those previous gems of *ahem* insightful brilliance at the top of the page too long, and I'm sorry for that. So very sorry. *cough cough*

Anyway, another reason I wasn't immediately rushing to blog about the latest "Tsubasa" episode was that there really isn't a whole lot to say about it. I mean, in the previous episode, it was pretty obvious that no-one was actually dead; when Mashimo really kills a character off -- oh, you'll know it. I expected it was some sort of transportation somewhere, though. I really didn't expect that we were actually stealing more from ".hack//SIGN" than just the music.

Of course, that said, it doesn't entirely make sense, because even though they're trying to neatly explain away the bleed-over from one world to another, there's a couple of inconsistencies that really make me question it. Sayoran's sword being one obvious one that they're trying to be oh-so-convienient about, but they're calling too much attention to it for me to be entirely sure that there isn't a big bait 'n switch going on.

Another one is more subtle, and I'll have to credit stumbling upon it in a forum more than due to my own observation -- Mokona received some sort of chocolate pastry from the Dimensional Witch back near the beginning of the beginning of the arc; there was still interdimensional communication going on, even while "on the inside".

And then all that calls into question how Sayoran was able to learn how to perceive objects and people (and monsters) around him as part of his training.

I guess I'm overthinking it. Seems to be happening a lot lately.

At any rate, two more episodes until the big cliffhanger where we'll be stuck for months on end afterwards not knowing what's going on!
