Kannagi, “But It’s Vague”
Posted by Doug on December 16, 2008
And, slowly, the plot begins to thicken.
Jin, frustrated by the injuries and indignities he has had to suffer on Nagi’s behalf, demands that the goddess answer some questions about the impurities they have been struggling to purify all this time all but ignored since the third episode, but Nagi cannot give a clear answer. It seems that Nagi doesn’t even really know the reason why she is doing what she is doing—when Jin looks in the school library for information about the enshrined deity that Nagi claims to be, he finds not only that there is no information on said deity, but also that Nagi had been searching for that same information, too.
For some odd reason, during Nagi’s bout of introspection, I found myself thinking of the last few episodes of Neon Genesis Evangelion (I suddenly had a vision of Nagi hugging Jin, whereupon he turned into Tang…at least none of the young ladies were comotose…) Still, not a lot has been learned, and more questions have been raised. I was a little worried after last week’s nothing-to-see-here-move-along episode, but I’m once again interested in seeing how Kannagi turns out.
