‘Mars Red’ Season 1 Episode 2 – Review

As mentioned earlier, the second episode of ‘Mars Red’ has been titled “Till Death Do Us Part.” It feels as though the second episode gets a little slow-paced and draggy at the end as compared to the first episode. Even though the dark aesthetics of this Anime television and web series are invitingly enveloping, the audience hopes that episode 3 picks up the speed of the main plot. Defrott’s monologue still feels a little unsettling from the previous episode. The viewers have a doubt that he just might be a vampire – you can tell by the eyes of a person! It seems as though all the vampires in the Anime series have vertical pupils, and surprisingly, so does Defrott!

Another beautiful observation made about the series is that each episode of ‘Mars Red’ utilizes a different play as its driving force. In the first episode, the driving force was of “Salome” by Oscar Wilde as the viewers witness the female vampire try and chat up to Maeda, but was killed by Maeda himself. On the other hand, the underlying plot of the second episode was ‘Romeo and Juliet.’ The play has five main characters. Similarly, this episode introduces five characters – Maeda, Suwa, Takeuchi, Tokuichi, and Kurusu. Maeda plays the role of Romeo, and Misaki plays the role of Juliet. The twist here was that Juliet (Mikasi) is already dead, and Romeo (Maeda) is living with the pain of his dead lover.

In this episode, the viewers finally get to see the members of the Vampire Unit. They looked pretty normal and decent. Then, a pink-haired scientist vampire is introduced as a white-haired vampire enters wearing a gas mask. The most dangerous vampire looked like an ordinary man. The knowledge of his strength came to the audience’s notice when the female vampire was able to see a strong and powerful aura coming from him. He was extremely fast as well. The fans cannot wait to see his full strength in a proper fight! In all totality, the episode was quite different from the first one. Episode 2 felt more like an investigation taking place amongst all the vampires. The audience wishes to see content similar to that of the first episode. Nonetheless, they cannot wait for the plot of this interesting Anime series to unravel!
