Regarding production values, I can't really complain, what with Celty's awesome scenes toward the end. It's refreshing to see her go into full-on badass mode, regardless of the circumstances.

there was definitely a very clear progression in terms of the narrative's cohesiveness -- like rolling up a ball of yarn after a cat's taken it apart.

it's not so much a disconnect from the narrative, thematically, as it is a reaction to a shift in the storytelling.

to sum it up, episode 9:

Though I don't like to speculate, my understanding of the last bit of exposition from episode 8:

i imagine that vanilla's purpose isn't to serve as a third point in a love triangle -- rather, he's a foil for kaiba. i haven't watched episode 5 yet, but from what we know: kaiba is shoved into the...

unsurprisingly, kaiba has an immense energy in it which exhibits the cross-cultural power of the fable/fairy tale. for me, it recalls a hint of french animation added to the already-vibrant ideas...
