In order to make Blade surrender and to admit defeat, Leonard has formed a suppression team, which included Earnest, Maria, Yessica, and others. Leonard, that time, totally admits that he could never surpass nor win against Blade, and Earnest is always losing trust on him.
Iona suggested that using hostage as a term could be the only way, and everybody else approved it. But then, would this hostaging strategy of theirs work this time on Blade, to allow him to surrender to them?
Some weirdness and comic mischief can be found in this Episode, where Leonard shall be the focus. Of course, I knew Leonard, right? Speaking of him, he is just acting cool and chill, but he is always screwing up in the middle, and I had noticed him always in some previous Episodes. Yep, and characters like him are indeed like punching bags of some ladies out there.
Basically, more comic mischief moments can be found here, wherein things can be serious, but some slapstick comedy would even break in to burst out some laughs. Yep, totally laughable and enjoyable, at the same time.
And as usual, Blade is really acting empty-headed here, yet he knows already from the start on what’s happening. But then, sometimes, I do really like him thinking in advance on what could be his stupid friends doing from the start, and I don’t really know that he has that kind of character. Could it be, he is a hero who could predict on what’s gonna happen next, or something? Yeah, and Blade is just acting funny outside, but he is indeed observant from the inside — He already knows what his power-hungered friends are doing.
For the story, it’s just about Leonard who has formed a suppression team in order to defeat Blade, but thwarting miserably. But then, the plot doesn’t seem to amuse me a lot, despite the several techniques to make someone laugh here are being used. And also, Earnest’s barbaric speeches are repeatedly used here, while using Leonard as accompaniment.
Nothing to learn something significant here. But then, it tells the viewers like me that: If you are a loser, then you are always a loser. And fighting back without cooling off your head can always make you lose. That’s it.
Overall, I did not enjoy this Episode a lot because of the boring storyline. But I did only enjoy this Episode because of the comic mischiefs, and some laughable scenes where Leonard and his suppression team (with Earnest) are always being thwarted off with their plans to defeat Blade.
My Rating: WORST (1.3/5)
Review Rating Summary and Breakdown
Story: (1/5) – Just a plot full of comic mischief and other slapsticks. It’s about a plan to defeat the main hero, but thwarting miserably.
Animation: (2/5) – They become a “Nesoberi” tower formed and stacked when they were defeated by Blade at the beginning and at the end of this Episode, and they are so darn cute. Leonard, on the other hand, did not show anything of an improvement of his character. And the rest of them are just remaining the same.
Insights: (1/5) – If you are a loser, then you are always a loser. And fighting back without cooling off your head can always make you a loser even more. One of the insights that I found out uninteresting when it is used for comedy.
