Takt Op Destiny Episode 6 Review- Plot and Characters

If you’ve seen your fair share of TV series, you are probably already familiar with the concept of “Bottle Episodes”. If not, here’s a short explanation- Bottle episodes are generally defined as episodes made in very little time and very little money. Suppose a series ever envisions itself running out of money before completing its targeted number of episodes. In that case, Bottle episodes are used to fill up slots while giving some plot development to the viewers.

They have been a staple of television for a long time, with some notable shows having utilised them to great effect. Some of them include the slightly divisive “Fly” of Breaking Bad, the restaurant episode in Seinfeld, and one bottle episode in each season of Friends. They are not necessarily all set in one location but can still be seen as noticeably different from the rest of the series. They don’t have much of a presence in anime, but I’ll still call Takt Op Destiny Episode 6 a bottle episode of the series.

For one, there was no action, so far the focal point of the series. This episode sees our travellers getting stuck in a deserted town where only old people live. The episode is the slowest of the season so far, which I wouldn’t say was a bad thing. It gave the viewer time to explore and take in the scenic town that the showrunners created for this one episode. The characters being old was also a nice touch, giving the entire thing an aesthetic that made the entire place seem like a graveyard.

Takt Op Destiny Episode 6 was also character-heavy, seeing Anna and Cossette running a few errands in the ghost town while Takt discovered something belonging to his father. The interaction between Takt and Cossette has been improving every week since Cossette is becoming more and more like her former self the more knowledge she gains. Takt is still a jerk, but he is still a nice change from the regular fare provided to us by most anime each season.

The emotional core of Takt Op Destiny Episode 6 was also quite strong, as both sub-plots resulted in some sad revelations. While they were not entirely emotionally devastating, they were still enough to increase interest in the show and the characters. Overall, I believe it fair to call this one a Bottle episode. I still hope the show goes back to action soon, as that is one of its strongest aspects, but this was a solid outing nonetheless.

Takt Op Destiny Episode 6 Review- Art and Music

In most episodes, Takt Op Destiny‘s high point has been its high contrast, colourful, and beautifully animated action scenes that were a treat to witness. By the definition of a bottle episode, the showrunners could not have done those action scenes here. The show still managed to churn out a perfectly lovely episode nonetheless, one with a lot of warmth and walking around a single town. The images being not very exciting today isn’t on me.

There was also a lot of variety in music this time around, which can only be a good thing. As the title suggests, an old-time blues song plays in the background for a short while and fit the show’s episode more than the classical music it usually plays. There was also some jazz here and there. It was nice to see Takt Op Destiny Episode 6 take some risks to mix and match the episode with the surroundings some more.

Verdict

Takt Op Destiny Episode 6 was a slow burner that, while not being as fast-paced and action-heavy as the previous episodes, was still able to build a lot more characters and provide some much-needed context to the story.
