This is an episode filled with tension, drama and intrigue…is what I’d like to say. Truth is, for a high profile show, everything in this story seems underwhelming. Why doesn’t it grab me like it should? I’ve gotten over the misfired mockery in episode one and I’ve been enjoying Mina as a character – she’s charming, strong, crafty, and quite likable in many aspects. She’d be just fine if she weren’t so loli-fied. Then again, that’s the draw point of the show – having a loli-vampire with hundreds of years of wisdom and brain power but acts like a little kid from time to time. Throw in some girly temper tandrum and fan service shots and you have a perfect moe-formula.
