Episode 2. In which everyone acts reasonable and the main characters hit it off.
There's something refreshing about how friendly they are with each other. Makes the inevitable romance much more believable.
"You wanna go shopping, but you got to observe me... so want me to go with you?" Akatsuki is such a thoughtful observation subject. The shopping scene was very funny.
Also the nosebleeds. Heh a vampire with nosebleeds.
I liked the look into Akatsuki head. This guy has it figured out, not letting power get to is head, and knowing that he might well screw up if he tried to use it to change the world. Though of course he won't be allowed to remain neutral for long.
And here we have the obligatory adult loli. Lets hope she can distinguish herself from other ten million of her kind.
Yes, Vague council of Vagueness, send a teenage girl after the most powerful vampire in the world, I'm sure it'll work out just fine. Also how you expect her to remain unbiased if it took you all of two seconds to notice that he's totally her kind and she's likely to develop a crush on him?
We get the situation explained somewhat. So Akatsuki can break the political balance between the Progenitors.
Ah, Catholic Church, we can always count on you to provide antagonists in any urban fantasy story.
Wee, we get action! Animation was good, and the fight looked just plain cool. BTW, did anyone honestly though Akatsuki won't follow her?
Next episode, we'll probably see Fourth Progenitor power. Awesome.
After two episodes, Strike the Blood is my favourite anime of the season.
