It’s an uneventful start to the second cour of Shingeki no Bahamut VIRGIN SOUL as the episode merely sends Nina and Jeanne to heaven.
After reaching the dragon village, Nina and Jeanne waste no time and go straight to the village elder and ask her about how to go to heaven. Here we learn that during the first Bahamut incident a couple of thousand years ago, this old lady helped out Zeus and Satan. She turns into a giant CGI dragon at the end of the episode to take Nina and Jeanne to heaven on her back. This was the only important thing this week.
Other less important things include Charioce going to Eibos for some reason, Jeanne and Nina talking about romance where Nina mentions how she fell in love with someone only to find out later on that he’s a terrible man, and Jeanne talking to Nina’s mother. This last one is the most important of the less important stuff of this episode.
Jeanne has gone through a lot; she lost the blessings of Michael-sama, turned demon, killed a whole lot of people and angels, lost her saint powers, lost respect from her subordinates, lost her position as Orleans Knights captain, got separated from her child, then got imprisoned in a dungeon, and then witnessed the death of many angels again. And now she learns that she was also probably responsible for the death of Nina’s dragon father during the Bahamut incident ten years ago. It’s an emotional scene as we see the usually composed Jeanne break into tears as Nina’s mother consoles her.
We get a new opening sequence with a song better than SiM’s first opening song. But more than that, the opening sequence shows all the important members of the events that are to unfold. Carlos and Dias will be more important now. Someone who appears to be Lucifer is by Azazel’s side, who’ll be important to the rise of the demons. Since Favaro has returned, he’ll be doing some important work now. There are quite some interesting things to be noted in the opening sequence, especially Charioce’s tear towards the end of the sequence.
It’s a very laid-back episode though it does have some good enough comedy here and there. It doesn’t exactly feel boring, but it’s not too good either. It’s a set up episode which takes the two main girls to the land of gods. We don’t learn many new things here but hopefully we learn something in heaven; since the land of gods episode has more than one part showing that they may do more than just take back El.
Although this episode was laid back, at least we got a cool new OP. Watch below:
