Sadly, today is not Illya’s lucky day, especially when Kuro is on the loose.
Ever since Kuro showed up, I felt sympathetic towards Illya. Sure, watching her have unlucky things happen like having a power pot almost fall on her head is somewhat funny, but the scene that takes the cake is what Kuro does to Miyu. She basically stole Illya’s girl and made out with her. To me, it was enjoyable, unexpected and probably made Illya jealous. Still, I wonder why she decided to kiss her all the sudden? We’ll probably find out soon enough since it’s probably tied to her existence or powers.
As one would expect, Kuro is really strong and vicious. She basically countered every move and trap. Not only that, she even made Miyu completely useless after knocking Sapphire from her hands until she fell into the bog. This is expected since her character is based on Archer. Still, I’m surprised that Rin and Luviagelita successfully used the bog as a trap considering that Kuro seen through the other traps. I guess Kuro’s sightseeing skills is no match for it.
With Kuro defeated, I wonder what part she will play since we still don’t know how she came to existence or why Illya’s powers became weaker. There is one thing to be certain: Irisviel will most likely return to Japan after appearing at the end of the episode since she will probably know why Kuro exists. Either way, I’m glad that she will play some part in the sequel. ¶
