ARRRRRRGH!

Well, I definitely don't want to watch ep. 13 until I watch 11 & (catch later)12 first. I'll probably watch 11 over the weekend along with some other stuff. But not until I watch 10 again. It's too damn funny. Until I see 12 I will try to refrain from being tempted by the dark side to read any spoilers. I want to be surprised.

Damn I hate waiting!!! ARRRGH!! Well, I gotta a lot to catch up on concerning the show anyway. Plus, some new shows I'm looking into. And my brain has been churning again. So I need more info. to disclose some elements concerning 'Doji' and 'NSWF'. I find it interesting that there are some elements that relate a little to the comic and some things not. But you can sit and really think about some things.

Oh want to here something funny. I checked the site on 'hicbc's side. Did you know that 'NSWF' is pronounced "na-so-efu". It's odd.

Thank you JShaggy for that warning.

I can't much wait for the soundtrack to come out longer. The music was a refreshment for episode 12 and some tunes heightened the mood.

Spoiler:


Maria
Spoiler:


The episodes also focuses more on Furimizu's involving with the WitchBlade project, and the role he plays regarding the creation of the Neo-Gene.
Spoiler:


Escape from NSWF.
Spoiler:


Since I was doubting Masane's maternity in respect towards Riko, therefore, it was not surprising what the DNA tests revealed.
Spoiler:


This episode ranges from standard to good. Looking forward what happens next.

Yup, we're all watching raws because this show is licensed. And it's a good idea not to ask any more because it'll just get deleted by the mods. ^_~

I like how Nora was able to deal with Maria. Don't wanna spoil the child too much.
Spoiler for what they were doing to Masane:

Is it just me, or does Furumizu's dad look like KFC's Colonel Sanders? ^_^

My summary of episode 12. I'm looking forward to the next episode too... I just hate NSWF for their constant attempts to split up Masane and Riko.

Episode 14 is soap opera galore. 8)

Can't get cornier than that, in my opinion.

The new op sucks. The video is just a cut up of previous scenes and the lyrics feature a barrage of "Hey, mama!" or something like that...

No action this week, but there was plenty of drama in Episode 14 like you said.

Spoiler for Episode 14:


For those curious, the name of the song in the new OP is "Dear Bob" by AKIO. I'm sorry, but I like XTC better than this. Still haven't figured out the name of the new ED theme, though.

Episode 13 Review

Spoiler for end of episode 12/beginning of episode 13 (MAJOR SPOILER AHEAD!!):

The episode itself is a real tearjerker as well:
Spoiler for episode 13:

A very sad episode indeed at that, but it also serves as a turning point in the story as the plot starts to darken.
It was indeed a beautiful and tearjerker episode. GONZO pushed up the budget to give the best animation and soundtrack quality for this episode.

The character's facial gestureS highly detailed and neat allow to display wide ranges of emotions about their personalities and the mood that quickly turned gloomy.

The second surprise was again the soundtrack. A new BGM song debuted at the scene when Takayama and Segawa talked about finding out Lady's maternity to Riko.
That song made me thought of the 'Noir' movies with its exotic tune and mysterious aura; something that may foretell a bad omen to come.

The next tune was Father's theme, and they played it all the way. That is one of my favorites which tells a whole deal about Father's identity.

The final one played when Reina confronted Nora. For a moment, I compared that song to those composed by Yuki Kajiura, particularly if you listened to the female solo voice that hums it.

Well JShaggy almost grasped what became of Masane and Riko in this episode, which places the stone for things to start getting depressing and likely apocalyptic-quese.
Spoiler:


Yes, it was a powerful scene that delivered me quite few tears, watching Masane disowning Riko for the little child's sake. Having to literally slapped on her the words that she's not her mother and should be tended by her real mom, speaking indifferent and callous to the little girl.

BTW, I think to have a liking for the ending. It shows the current characters, those who are already deceased (they even included the late Ex-cons), and future characters on upcoming episodes.

Isn't Witchblade going to end at 24 episodes? I saw a poster of Witchblade Masane sticking her tounge out with her finger in a seductive pose. Then I saw in a corner it says "22 minutes and 24 episodes". I guess it means 22 minutes on each episode and only 24 episodes in the series. I can only think of Fate: Stay Night which has only 24 episodes.

wrex_japan has it. The title for the ED theme is Kutsu Himo (Shoe Strings) by Yamamoto Asami.

You can ask him at his blog to check for veracity.

Animation returned to its good-to-average quality. Riko at some close-up shots has her cheeks swollen and features no nose.

Agreed. Soap opera totally owned for this episode and is fitting, since Masane suffered an emotional blow in the previous one. Had this episode feature tense angst or exploded violent action, it would seem out of place and scrambled in plot holes.

JShaggy, you explained clear as crystal what went on, therefore, I won't comment on the events but rather describing Riko's current relationship with Reina and Masane's hardship to coping on her own depression for Riko's loss; those issues explored were the highlights to me.
Spoiler:


Kinishida reinforces more on Riko. On her request Father sent Nora to retrieve her in order to make test on the child, and more mysteries surrounds, especially when Masane asks about the identity of Riko's dad which is unknown.

BTW, is it a joke that the writers are playing upon us?
Spoiler:


And I agree with you, JShaggy, the new OP sucks in both song and video. The video only displays a montage with clips from random footage of the first 13 episodes.

Fifteen would be a must see episode. It looks to me that WitchBlade is imitating Gantz in which major characters are getting killed in both.

Spoiler:


Seriously, the designer either was drunk or suffered some trauma. The design of Maria's DualBlade form looks unsavory to me. It is neither cool nor sexy without leaving anything to imagination.

Resembles more of a devil form to Joker claded in WitchBlade armor.

Her Cloneblade hair is even sillier than her real life hair. And that's a feat. 8)

They don't seem to be pushing Tozawa X Masane at all, while Takayama X Masane gets a lot of attention for now.
