Blood Lad 13
I have a musical history exam in approximately 3 hours (since this post is scheduled, I’ll be finished my exam /exactly/ when this post is published), so here’s a short post for today, seeing as Blood Lad 13 was released some time ago.
Franken Stein gives Yanagi an emergency miasma treatment, which brings her back to consciousness. However, he only has half a day’s supply of this.
Beru and Wolf track down Papladon, who bursts from a
pig boar’s stomach. Staz escapes from Liz’s Toy Box.
The fight begins!
Why does Franken Stein need Papladon killed, again? Is it because Papladon ran away with his treatment, or is it just a ‘You kill Papladon, I give her the real treatment’ deal? I presume it isn’t the latter, as Wolf could easily kill Franken Stein, and he wouldn’t have a half-day time limit, but I don’t think it was explained to be the former…
Staz comments on his own otaku lifestyle, which we haven’t seen for so long. Really, the whole premise of ‘otaku vampire’ was thrown out the window, though I can’t complain.
Wolf’s not acting normal this chapter – I thought he was that ruthless murderer who’s the boss of the West District, not somebody who would get angry at somebody else killing somebody for no reason (wow, that made no sense). Being a protag, I doubt he got angry because Papladon ‘stole his kill’ (though he may claim to do that as an act of tsundere).
Papladon’s ability is spatial – he has these rings which he can go through. If it doesn’t make sense, just imagine his rings are a portal gun :v
I wonder how Franken Stein made such an ability – it’s not a simple act of creating a Frankenstein’s monster anymore.
If this follows Frankenstein canon, the ending may be much more dramatic than we’d expect – Papladon might kill Franken Stein, and subsequently commit suicide.
Anyways, 13 chapters have passed since my first Blood Lad post. It’s been a great ride so far, but I’d like to blog something else for a change. Thus, this is the end of my blogging of Blood Lad – I hope you all (read: just Noc) enjoyed it!
