Have I ever said that Alice is the best character of Spring 09? In case you never noticed. Yes. Yes I have. This whole post looks at why I’m completely jumping on driving the bandwagon that is Alice.
Exhibit #1: Don’t Wake Alice
Thus, Break, the jack-ass, arrives at Gil’s house (the way he leaves is even stranger). So how does Alice act while he’s there?
Exhibit #2: Dynamic Personality Traits
And her personality can change even more:
Alice is pretty much every type of character rolled into one. You could compare her to Mio from K-ON in that sense, but unlike Mio, where they kind of just forced a bunch of moe, aggressiveness, and scaredness together with no real plan or thought process (creating a shitty character), they succeed tremendously with Alice, as everything seems to fit perfectly together. Basically:
Alice > Mio
(in this case, “>” stands for, completely kicks the ass of and rapes)
Errr…I don’t know how I got so off-subject as to come up with the need to announce that Alice > Mio, especially since this was supposed to be about personality traits or something, but whatever. It happened.
Anyway, as far as the actual episode was concerned, it was, of course, awesome, not only because Alice was in it, but also because we learned what the Will of the Abyss is (for real this time) and what Oz’s role is. Apparently Oz has the power to control the Abyss. I can already tell that this is going to affect his seal. In my opinion (which is always correct….unless it’s wrong), Oz is going to run out of time and be sent to the Abyss, but no big deal, because he can control it. Basically:
The Abyss = The Matrix
Oz = Neo
In other words, Oz can control the abyss like Neo can control the Matrix. But Oz just doesn’t know how yet. Maybe I’m completely wrong about this episode, but that’s what I got out of it…….Alice rules.
