Welcome back guys! It’s anime review time once again with our Anime REvisited pick; Chivalry of a Failed Knight. Last post we’ve talked about the Sword Eater known as Korato (I’m guessing a ‘nickname’ given to him by his friends), but now we’re learning something about Ayase that seemed confusing at first…but now we’re starting to see where she’s coming from. So let’s go ahead with the review! (See what I did there? XP)
Ikki was on the rooftop with Ayase as she asked him a bit of a weird question about their friendship, but suddenly she used her device which happened to be a crimson-colored katana (with no guard on the edge of the hilt), and slashed the gate behind her as she fell through. With no choice but to use it Ikki channeled his power to rush to Ayase’s aid to save her, only to discover that this was her intention this whole time. With just ten hours before the start of his next battle; which happens to be against Ayase, Ikki finds himself in a hospital bed while recovering from his weary state. Although there’s not a whole lot of information about Ayase, her ranking, or even her skill and technique, Ikki and the others knew that her reasoning behind what she did, was to get back her father’s dojo from Korato.
At 3pm the battle between Ikki and Ayase started as the two of them prepared to fight one another. Before the start of the match Ikki caught on to the fact that Ayase booby-trapped the arena, as slashes were appearing from out of thin air due to her device’s ability. The sword fight was actually pretty good, but it wasn’t until near the end of the episode that Ikki knew what he had to do – defeat Ayase with all of his strength and get back what she lost. Ayase tried to fight against her truth but Ikki exposed it, and it was at that moment she realized that in order to get her father’s dojo back, she would have to regain the pride that he took in protecting it back. Yeah, Ayase lost the match putting Ikki at 7-0, but now she realizes what she must do, but she’ll need Ikki’s help to do it.
This one’s a little short but that’s all we’ve got for this episode review. As always continue to uplift one another, and stay united my friends! 🙂
