Love Of Kill Episode 6 Review- Things Are Getting Better, Or Are They?
This was a fantastic episode and by far the best the show has ever done. We noticed during the last episode that the show’s quality has been steadily rising as it went along, and no episode demonstrates that better than the latest. It was able to accomplish everything that the show had been aiming for since its beginning, and it did it by being the least action-oriented or plot motivated of the entire show. This episode was practically slice of life for a while, and it was great.
It involved Song, Chateau, and her colleagues meeting on the cruise ship, which is almost always a fantastic set piece for action thrillers. One thing leads to another, and we get Song and Chateau spending all of their time on the ship together while trying to figure out what’s going on in the others’ minds. Both of our main characters have phenomenal chemistry, and it comes across well in this episode. There is a lot of the usual bickering and fast-talking, but we can feel them getting closer and opening up to each other more.
A surprising and unusual highlight of this episode was Jim, the mouthless boy. While he had been mostly insufferable and useless in the entire series so far, he was quite great in this outing. The show just let him be in his comedic element for the entirety, and he turned out to be highly entertaining. If he didn’t speak with that particular accent, he could have been a very endearing character in the show, but his manner of speech would have made him unbearable even if he was as well written as Eren Jaeger.
This is a rather plain show, with nothing special going on in its inside or outside. While everything is acceptable and perfectly watchable, it doesn’t catch its viewers’ eyes with anything flashy or unique. However, I do appreciate that it does mix some new shots in between to change things up and turn the tone slightly more humorous and light. It isn’t a particularly funny show by any means, but the attempts at comedy to lighten up the drab or boring parts is very much appreciated.
There is also a drastic tone change towards the end of Love of Kill Episode 6, and it is a genuine surprise and hits like a speeding truck. The show has developed a knack for delivering some great twists and reveals, and this was certainly the best of all that we have seen so far. It involved a direct consequence of the actions we had seen happen in the episode, and it involved a character who was very important to the show’s plot structure. It remains to be seen what the show does with that breathtaking discovery, but it has certainly hooked me.
Love Of Kill Episode 6 was a fantastic episode that had most of everything- comedy, drama, and plenty of thrills to boot. It also ended with an honest to god phenomenal cliffhanger and has thus made its future even more enticing.
