Pros: The plot thickensÂ…

Cons: Nothing to complain of so far!

The Bottom Line: Ya just gotta keep watching!

Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie's plot.

In this world, man’s destiny is controlled by some transcendental entity of law…like the hand of God. At least man knows he has no control over his own will.

Note: Seeing as this is the third volume of the series, I highly suggest that you check out the first two. Otherwise you’ll have no idea who these people are and what is going on, etc. etc.

Previously, we’ve met Gatts, Griffith, Caska, and several other characters. Midland is crushing Tuda when it comes to the war, and Griffith is slowly but surely gaining more power to his name. He is even becoming quite close to Princess Charlotte, a fact that some aren’t too keen on. After an assassination attempt, Griffith has asked Gatts to take out the man who ordered it. And what’s where we pick up.

Gatts is supposed to be quick and quiet…but considering he’s a big hulking guy with the biggest sword since Cloud in Final Fantasy, he’s not exactly the best assassin. Needless so say, more people than necessary get killed. Near the end of the first episode we see Griffith staring at someone he knows was in on things – and let me tell you, he starting to look pretty creepy.

During the next huge battle, Gatts and Caska get separated from the group. It is during this time that we finally understand Caska’s relationship with Griffith, as well as the reason why she dislikes Gatts so much. However, eventually the enemy finds them and it’s Gatts and Caska versus 100 men. The two are severely outnumbered and have no idea if anyone is even looking for them. So what’s the plan when you’re against 100 men? Fight for all you’re worth and see what happens in the end.

When it comes to blood and gore, well, this set has a fairly decent amount, as well as a few killings that might make you a bit uncomfortable. There is also a slight bit of nudity, so depending upon your stance on that, I suggest you beware also, even though there really isn’t all that much. However, things are getting more and more interesting as we delve deeper into the character’s psyches, especially Caska and Griffith. I’m really interested in seeing where this is going, and with only a total of 25 episodes, I’m already halfway through!

Episodes included in this set:
10. Nobleman
11. Battle Engagement
12. Two People
13. Suicidal Act
