Another dangerous adventure with an interesting outcome this time around.
The walls of denial are crumbling around Sorao. Soon she’ll deny the truth no longer.
We joined Sorao “whining” again about Toriko “dragging” her on another Otherside “adventure” but as soon as she sees her face she’s practically putty in her hands.
I wonder if our heroines will run into a creepy creep every time they ride the elevator? I don’t mind. They’re all scary, which is the point.
This time Toriko figured heading back to the house where she found the guns in search of more equipment.
Sorao and Toriko brought plenty of rocks to uncover potential glitches. As another part of Sorao’s denial wall crumbled Toriko nonchalantly uncovered a glitch, confirming they did the right thing to be careful and not only rely on Sorao’s eye.
As their trek continued we got a few more “Damn you Satsuki” grumbles from Sorao as Toriko kinda sorta bragged about her again. Eventually the reached their destination, an abandoned village. However, Toriko didn’t recall ever being there.
And there goes another piece of the wall. Even in a haunted village with no clue who or what could be there Sorao couldn’t help but freak out when Toriko got close. Yup she’s got it bad.
As they exited a house Sorao suddenly lost sight of Toriko. Extremely worried she searched cautiously for her. Fortunately Toriko found her in time. Sorao tried poorly to play down how worried she was but Toriko got the hint.
That’s when we reached the part at the start of the episode they were at and got a good look at the “Villager”.
Sorao identified the “Villager”s true form as they shot it down. No time for rest as the other “Villagers” came out to say hello.
There were too many to fight with only pistols. Fortunately Sorao spotted a portal back home and had Toriko “open” it. They barely made it back as the portal conveniently vanished afterward.
As far as finding cool stuff went the trek was a bust but the two may have found something far better than equipment. Another good episode.
