Bucchigire! Episode 11 Review
A major emphasis in this episode is placed on setting up the biggest conflict in the season. Shine On Bakumatsu Bad Boys Episode 11 illustrates the depth and breadth of the impending disaster by well depicting the impact of personal and political issues. Shine On Bakumatsu Bad Boys Episode 11’s personal plot developments isn’t as dramatic as the battle itself. In particular, Rashumaru’s story took an unexpected turn in this episode.
Rashumaru’s moment of transition in this case is a cheap way to ensure he and Ichibanboshi continue to fight until the end while making the spectator more sympathetic toward him. A more natural and ultimately meaningful way to resolve their disagreements would be to just allow them to do so. Shine On Bakumatsu Bad Boys Episode 11 puts a lot of effort into building tension for the forthcoming conflict but keeps things lighthearted through Akira’s playful interactions with Katsura. While never completely diffusing the urgency of the situation, these moments help the narrative avoid becoming too serious.
In this episode, I was confused about a significant reveal near the end. This revelation did little to surprise or enhance the narrative. Instead, I was puzzled about what was going on. Suddenly, we are introduced to a new organization and concept, one that we had never heard of previously. This scene is a classic example of an unpredictable narrative surprise that doesn’t always make for a good plot twist.
Likewise, the visuals are well suited to convey the many elements of the episode. The tension and comedy are both handled well, and a surprise magical element is executed visually interestingly. The only issue I have with the visuals is an inconsequential misrepresentation of how fire spreads that is insignificant. Seeing it made my head hurt, even though it was not a big deal. I hope that Shine On Bakumatsu Bad Boys Episode 11 will bring the series to a satisfying conclusion. Although there have been ups and downs, I hope it can deliver a strong conclusion.
