Back to the ole anime blogging. There needs to be more time in a day.
As the previous episode focused on flashy effects and didn’t provide any substance whatsoever, this episode endeavors to do just that.
The Entrepreneur has Assets, monsters of sorts that are bound to the player. They will aid in combat and are, as their name implies, assets. Deals are essentially duals in which two Entrepreneurs fight it out for money. Bankruptcy is determined by the gigantic globs clashing above the Deals. And lastly, Micro would stand of micro-transaction. Or at least I think it does. You spend money to apply cool effects to your Asset. It’s all relatively simple if you think about it. The terminology isn’t too complex.
Msyu or Mashu would be the main attraction this episode. She’s Kimimaro Yoga’s Asset and seems to know Souichirou Mikuni’s Asset. That may explain why they both have humanoid bodies instead of the demonic ones of others. She’s going to be the moe/heroine of the story. A tsundere-type it seems. Unlike the mute Assets of the others, Msyu is incredibly vocal in that she’ll reprimand Yoga and voice her dislikes about his slacking conviction. The regular setup.
Now that Yoga has entered the financial district, he is required to participate in “Deals” once a week. In addition, he sees reality in a different perspective. Midas Money, the bills issued by Midas Bank, are visible to him as black money. All money that passes through the financial district will return to the real world blackened. It’s an interesting concept. I’m curious as to how it will impact the main plot.
My one major gripe with the show is that the animation is a bit janky at times. It reverts from a conventional style to a 3D game style similar to MikuMikuDance. Consistency is very sporadic which isn’t a good thing. It messes with me.
