Madou Soshi (episode 4)

SPOILER WARNING! If you haven’t listened to episodes 1-3, this review will spoil things for you, even in the thought section where I try to avoid them. I suggest reading the previous Madou Soshi review first.


“Are you talking about the stone wall with more than three thousand rules? There are way too many! I can’t read them all!”
“What era are you talking about? Nowadays it’s four thousand and ninteen of them.”
“Noooo! Let me leave!”

Gi Musen (CV: Tatsuhisa Suzuki) woke up in a new body he had received to avenge the original owner. After doing so by chance, he hurries away to avoid Ran Bouki (CV: Satoshi Hino). However, he meets the man again regardless and things don’t quite go the way he expected them to.

Madou Soshi (episodes 1-3)

Important note! All names, including the title, are in Japanese! For those who have read the novel or comic, or watched the animated or live action series, I’ve put a list of names after the summaries to minimise confusion. Madou Soshi is the Japanese reading title of Mo Dao Zu Shi, and not me bullshitting some random title because I can’t read Chinese much anymore.
Also! Usually I write Given name Family name on characters. This is reversed this time because it just sound better. I drop family names unless I need to use them after writing it once though.

During the second year as well, peace remained…
And during the thirteenth year as well, peace still remained…

Magical Lulululu/Through the Looking Glass [My❤︎Milky❤︎Way]

This is another first – we’re getting a lot of them this year – as I wanted to review a CD I got a while ago (read over a year ago) because I liked the A-side in Rejet’s PV. But I haven’t gotten around to it because Mini-kid turned out to love the A-side so much I heard it on repeat for months and couldn’t bother to technically break it down because I’d have to play the tracks on repeat myself. I’ll take the opportunity here to mention that I’m a classically trained flautist, so I have a background in music and hence might break down the music more than seems normal. If so, just let me know I went to technical. Lol.

This is part of the Marginal #4 series, but I haven’t actually played Marginal #4. Or seen the anime. So I’ll review this from someone who just happens to like KENN a lot. Or something. Lol. I mention lyrics, but I didn’t want to make this post super long and I don’t think it’s something you absolutely need to know. But I translated them and the translations can be found here. There’s also a drama, and you’ll find a summery of that below
