Title: Come Hither My Lord Rating: 7.5/10
Synopsis: With Regis slumped over his shoulder, Karias reaches the holding cell where Gejutel should have been. Karias surmises that he has gone to be with the lord (no, he’s not dead) and Regis urges him to go on. Frankenstein’s soul weapon (it’s not a soul weapon?? :O) has become even more unstable and violent and envelops Franky in dark hues of MAD power… Psycho Rael, who is looking all anorexic and gross, finally admits that Franky is waaaay more ossm n powerful (if I included sexy that would insinuate that Rael has some degree of hotness *puke*). Franky charges Rajak again with his weapon at the ready. Cue giant explosion. Rael becomes desperate and wants his brother to beat Frankenstein so badly that he’s willing to let Rajak’s soul weapon absorb the powers of his Grandia (I actually hope that happens 😀 1 cool point for Rael?? Naaah.)
We’re back to the sacred shrine with the current lord, her followers and Gejutel. They (don’t ask me their names) are shocked that Frankenstein is a mere human with insane powers rivaling that of a Clan leader and Gejutel gives us some juicy rumors concerning his past. Franky is naughty. We like! Anyway, Gejutel then goes off on a harangue and criticizes the lord for her lack of wisdom and foresight and also questions the clan leaders’ judgement regarding the traitors of the current lord. The lord then proceeds to carry out Gejutel’s sentence. She releases her soul weapon, Ragnarok (Sephiroth!!) in a way that’s reminiscent of Rai’s blood field. She shows off it’s length, floats down the staircase like a fairy (an epic one), raises her weapon in the air but as she does so the large doors creak open and HE walketh in!! Woooo!!
Likes: I didn’t mind Gejutel’s diatribe. What he said shows us how serious the situation is with the current lord and Lukedonia on a whole. The lord did express her sorrow at having to kill Gejutel (before she released her soul weapon). She might have some good in her. Her silhouette floating down the staircase was pretty cool. We’ve never seen Rai confront a female so this should be vewy intewesting! Frankenstein is still grinning despite his soul weapon going totally berserk on him. He’s wicked cool with just the right amount of craziness that makes you drool. I like Psycho Rael’s idea of merging his weapon with Rajak’s. That way he’d be weaker and we’d get to see more epic-ness between husband number 2 and 3.
Dislikes: Since we’ve had our fill with Gejutel’s ‘preaching’ as the mu§e calls it, I hope we’ll have less prolonged talk next week and a continuation of Franky vs Rajak. Hopefully, the lord won’t want to hear anything from Rai and would engage him in battle as well. However, I have a feeling the clan leaders would fight him first or something. I don’t mind but as long as we don’t have to wait forever for Rai and the lord to fight. If they don’t fight at all I’ll be disappointed but hey, life goes on.

mu§e: 7.5/10 – Pretty good chapter. Um…a bit too much talking of more stuff but I suppose they were necessary enough. But you know how quickly we tire of an old man’s preaching 😛 No matter how epic it may be. It was nice seeing Frankenstein going all psycho (subtlely) because of his prolonged use of the dark spear, waiting to see how that unfolds. I just wish Noblesse’s battle scenes were a bit clearer…I don’t know if it’s the colour or what but at times they just appear…messy. It’s not easy to follow ’em really. It’s just big booms and clashes without ever really knowing what’s happening. But I digress…FINALLY!!! the sexy appears! I was seriously starting to think they were gonna let the old man go into eternal sleep before he showed up. I sit and wait with much anticipation for this clash. Been waiting on it since they landed among the Nobles.
Random Hot Topic: Does Rai even realize how hilarious he is? He’s smart isn’t he? Surely he must be aware… I mean, who would whip out a biscuit in hot pursuit of an enemy and think nothing of it? His deadpanned facial expressions indicate he’s not aware of his natural retarded-ness lol. What’s your favourite “Rai” moment?
