I love Lucoa’s eyes. I never thought that her eyes would have been mismatched. Could I have seen them a long time ago and not have noticed? Probably. However, since we got to see an unusual closeup of her, her mismatched eyes look pretty cool, and I think they suit her character pretty well. Anyway, on the topic of Lucoa, despite being the polar opposite of Fafnir, the two make an extraordinary duo. We have the airhead paired with someone who is very much a completionist, and it works exceptionally well. I would love to see them paired up more often. I think that would be worth watching, that’s for sure.
I love the episode because we’re starting to see these Dragons grow more and more accustomed to living life as a ‘human’ and following the actions that we ‘humans’ do, like sleeping. They’re starting to enjoy their time on earth and appreciate the smaller things. It has to do with the fact that the dragons find the human race interesting, which sparks curiosity. Someone curious will always find whatever they’re observing, in this case, humans, entertaining to them.
Personally, I liked that. Watching Kobayashi and Tooru have those deeper conversations with one another about humans and their habits was something I really enjoyed. You could sense Tooru’s curiosity and feel the joy and happiness Kanna feels being around people she considers friends, which was further cemented when she says the “Love them,” them being humans. Then we have Fafnir, who was curious by the thought of creating his own treasure, something that humans do all the time. Which I’m sure was referring to creating something that you’re proud of and that others will treasure and enjoy; in this case, we’re talking about manga.
I enjoy the fact that we see our character’s personalities evolve. Tooru is more curious than ever, constantly questioning the ‘whys’ and ‘hows.’ I find that to be really entertaining. Fafnir definitely feels a lot more accepting of humans and their habits. He’s definitely the one character that has changed the most because he’s a lot more personable now. Furthermore, we all know that Kanna is living her best life here as a dragon amongst humans. Let’s not forget all the other characters who have also evolved; many of them are not what they used to be. If you were to compare episode one to episode seven, I think the one thing you’ll notice right away is that all the characters feel a lot more personable and just generally feel a lot happier.
Again, as previously mentioned in my last blog. I want to see some pretty epic animation and with the preview of the next episode being shown at the very, very end of episode seven. It looks like I will get my wish, and that’s something I’m very excited about. Overall, I really enjoyed episode seven; it was a great slice of life episode. I certainly think it’s one of my favourite episodes of the series, but I hope that the ones following this one will beat it out. 8/10, A.
