Posted by psgels on 19 June 2007 with categories: El Cazador de la Bruja


Quite an interesting episode this was. The people who were expecting action-packed episodes from El Cazador will probably rejoice, as it’s basically one huge gunfight, though the plot also features some nice progression (in El Cazador-terms, of course).

Usually, Nadie and Ellis would run into a random bystander and they’d end up helping him or her somehow. This time, it’s the opposite when the guy ends up helping Nadie and Ellis escape. Remember the blue guys from the previous episode? Well, let’s just say that they aren’t as passive as Ricardo and LA, as they waste no time launching an all-out attack on the couple. Nadie then runs into an armoured car, and she gets the driver to help them escape. He’s a bit of a lazy guy this time. He likes weapons and computers, but he’s basically your average armed nerd.

With this episode, I also realized that Ellis is being guided by the rock she carries. It’s also interesting to see how she reacts to the people that are after her life, she doesn’t seem to worry at all. I also liked the use of phones in this episode, when Nadie kept looking for ways to contact Blue-Eyes (did she really forget to bring something as important as a mobile phone with her? ^^;).

Also, remember the mysterious woman that appeared alongside Blue-Eyes during the OP? Well, her identity is revealed: it’s Blue-Eyes herself, with her hair down and a different outfit. LA, meanwhile, “obtained” a new hat and managed to catch up to Nadie and Ellis again, while Ricardo gets left behind, due to Lilio getting sick, which forces him to take care of her. I wonder what Rozenberg will do when he finds out about the blue guys, because I do believe that he doesn’t like to see Ellis dead.

This episode also introduces two new characters. One is an ally of Blue-Eyes, she also seems to work for her. The second is even more mysterious, as we only see one shot of her, no more.

Near the end of the episode, something interesting also happens. The armoured car has stopped, and the blue guys are shooting at the vehicle from all possible sides. Then, suddenly they’re taken out, but we never see who did it. There are three possible explanations:
– Ellis used her powers in such a way that the blue guys were taken out all at once.
– The above-mentioned woman had something to do with it.
– LA went berserk again. It wouldn’t surprise me if he was hiding in the trunk of Nadie and Ellis’s new car, by the way.

    how bout a review on devil may cry?

    I did write a small blurb on Devil May Cry here:
    http://psgels.net/category/other/some-quick-first-impressions/

    And Maria, I’m not sure, maybe I’ll watch it, maybe not. I’m not too big of a fan of sports anime.

  3. nae says:

    I’m constantly surprised by the fact that people didn’t know that was Blue-Eyes. And this is from both the Chinese and English communities. ^^;

  4. Kazu-kun says:

    I’m surprised as well. It was obvious that she was Blue-Eye.

  5. psgels psgels says:

    Obvious for everyone but me, apparently. I really need to pay more attention. -_-

  6. kaei says:

    The blue guys disappeared because it was daybreak. In an earlier phone conversation Blue-eyes had with one of the hooded ladies (voice-acted by Mitsuishi Kotono (!)) the hooded lady says that they are acting on some kind of “tradition of the society” and that they are allowed to do anything during the night. Blue-eyes tells Nadi on the phone that they only need to escape until sunlight appears. So, they got away because they simply managed to survive long enough.

  7. psgels psgels says:

    kaei: ah, thanks for explaining. It does make sense now. It still intruiges me that a show like El Cazador has such a difficult dialogue to understand.

  8. Allexiel says:

    Around min. 20.15 you can see a shadowed character. I had the impression it was Mireille from Noir. Did anyone have the same feeling? *me getting excited*

  9. mizuke says:

    Tacos. Blue eyes liked the costume too but there was no taco song this time. :/ I guess they repeated the songs enough times for us to remember :D or maybe they read these blogs to get how the fans are reacting to the anime and change it accordingly ^-^ or maybe not :P

  10. mizuke says:

    And I thought Nadie might have saved Ortega by not letting Ellie kiss him on the face. I thought LA might have killed him otherwise :D

  11. smiyo says:

    does any1 know where to watch ICE or the OVA eng subbed because i can’t find it anywhere…

    Strange place to ask this, but you can find episode one on Tokyo Toshokan

    @Bam Finally going to start DSIII this monday, I’ll have to see what’s so special about this one since I wasn’t the biggest fan of DSII.

    Pretty pleased with my Vita so far, finished Danganronpa 2 and completed 100% of Ray Gigant this week. June looks like a pretty good month for the Vita, currently deciding whether or not I should purchase Odin Sphere or Grand Kingdom when they release. Of course I really should repair my WiiU gamepad before Mirage Sessions comes out.

    @Maamoo: if you like datk twisted psychological thriller I would recommend my favorite manga: psychometrer Eiji. It’s a shame that they haven’t adapted it to anime yet

    @Maamoo I got one that might be right in your wheelhouse called Partner by Miho Obana. It’s dark, twisted, and crazy. Problem is I just can’t find it licensed and published in english anywhere.

    @Maamoo: I suppose if you’re looking for a shoujo manga I’d recommend Black rose Alice, afterschool nightmare, Count cain(and its sequel Godchild), angel sanctuary.

    @Mamamoo: Keep in mind that although monster will be suspenseful/nailbiting/chilling/a mature thriller with one heck of a villain, it will have filler/drag/too many arcs. Berserk will be an experience of highs and lows and it kind of declines after a particular arc. Good decision choosing cardcaptor sakura’s manga over the anime, the anime I think left some stuff out.

    I’ve decided to get into manga on whim today after exclusively only watch anime for 6 years. I’m thinking of getting Monster, Berserk, Cardcaptor Sakura and 1 more. I think I want another shoujo manga in there to just keep the balance. Any recommendations? I like complicated\\pyschological dark stuff which sounds a bit contradictory to the shoujo genre but I’m just putting it out there for a recc

    @K-Off, I do have the option to update WordPress but to do so I need psgels FTP password. I could try sending him a message to see if I can get that or if he can do it himself.

Bungou Stray Dogs – 08

I have to say more than anything this is Bungou Stray Dogs’ special episode, in a sense that in one hand, the show produces one of its most brilliance ever, but on the other hand, there are still many shortcomings along with the greatness, producing an episode that mostly entertainment but uneven. The introduction of […]

Joker Game – 08

Well Joker Game managed to pull a twist I didn’t see coming and what makes it rather amusing is that it did it unintentionally. For you see it took the entire episode for me to figure out that I wasn’t watching the antics of another spy of the D-agency only to figure out that this […]

Flying witch – 07

One of the thing that Flying witch always does it right is how it establish the chemistry between any characters, while at the same time maintain the consistency in their personalities. It feels like if you give them any random characters in any random situation, pretty much the show can hit it off. Last week […]

Kiznaiver – 07

To some this may be the strongest episode of Kiznaiver to date. However to someone like myself I find myself mixed on what I just witnessed. I have said before that what I like about this series are the aspects which are distinctly Trigger which would be it’s sense of wacky humor and character chemistry. […]

Again this week Mayoiga succeed at bringing a big screw-you to us audience.

It really is a ridiculous anti-climax, but […]

This week the plot revolving the Azure King was resolved and it raises the conflict of sense of justice between Dazai and Kunikida.

Chinese Animation Guide – Part 2: Chinese Anime shows

As much as I hated the term Chinese Anime (Anime stands for Japanese animation, strictly speaking), this is the exact term for those shows. Their influence from the Anime was so heavy that apart from the voice cast and some scene settings, you can’t tell those apart from the original anime. With that said, judge from […]

If anyone have been followed animation closely for the last few years, they will notice a recent rise of Chinese animation (call it a wave if you like), both in feature and in series. While it does not have much of an impact in any English speaking world like anime has been, they are really popular in their mainland and some parts of Asian countries. With the success of Kung Fu Panda (half-produced by China) and its power on movies industry (China IS the main market for feature films now), it is worth it to take a look on this current trend and see how they are different from anime.
While my fellow bloggers are the ones who more specialize in Games and Manga, I will be the one who cover World Animation (by that I mean anything animated other than anime and American big studio animation – they got way too much coverage already). Like majority of you guys I am not from China, my Chinese is as good as my Japanese (which is to say NONE), so this is actually goddamn difficult to look for titles, and the information I could find are sacred here on top of that find a suitable sub for it, most of them does not even have an English name, thus the title and the synopsis that I give you here are just a rough translation. So behold. This is our very first attempt to cover the animation of china.
