Jin puts everything on the line for the Gift Game. Will they discover the truth of the Pied Piper of Hamelin?

Two main things I took away from episode 9. One, Izayoi positioning Jin early in the series to be the leader of the No-Names was a good call. Putting everything on the line in this Gift Game? Awesome. Along with that, Izayoi and Jin taking all that time to research all about Hamelin and the story surrounding that tale really paid dividends. They still had a challenge to face, but they weren’t completely caught off-guard.

Secondly, Asuka finally given a chance to test her gift and improve upon it. The children who lost their lives at Hamelin tell her the truth about how they died and issue her a Gift Game to control and master Deen, their final Gift. We see the results of it in the end with Asuka arriving on the scene right when things were looking dire. Good timing, Asuka! And the fairy mimicking her pose was just way too funny.

With the start of episode 10, Izayoi explains how Weser is the real Pied Piper of Hamelin. Asuka and Deen taking on Ratten and Strom was excellent. The fact that Black Percher/Pest was able to take on Izayoi, Kurousagi, and Sandora at the same time was impressive. Never mind that, as Kurousagi takes all of them on a trip to the freaking moon! It was a nice touch that they arrived at Chandra Mahal or “Moon Palace.” Being that far away from the Hamelin’s grimoire, her powers have limited effect. Sandora uses her fire powers to restrain Pest and Asuka commands Deen to throw Kurousagi’s Spear of Indra. Pest finally defeated. Asuka returns to where she met the spirits of the children of Hamelin, and they give her Deen and their 131st friend, the fairy. The fairy contains the truth about Hamelin and Asuka names her Merun.

Final thoughts: Man, I’m really sad this ended. I enjoyed the entire cast of characters with the overpowered Izayoi, hilarious Kurousagi, and perverted Shiroyasha. Kinda disappointed You didn’t get a chance to properly shine with her talents, but Asuka managed to pick up Deen and finally getting a good understanding of her gift. I’m disappointed that a lot of the major fighting throughout most of the series was kind of kept off screen. Izayoi and Kurousagi’s back and forth routine consistently had me smiling and entertained. While the series wasn’t particularly thought-provoking, I did appreciate how it made use of myths and legends. I think the fairy tale of the Pied Piper of Hamelin was handled well. For me, it was a fun ride worth watching every week. Could this use a second season? Yes!

    Yep I am also sad to see this series come to an end because it was really fun! I also wish Shiroyasha got to participate more in the fighting, but I have high hopes for that to happen in season two if it gets made. I wonder if we will see the other bunny girls that Kurousagi mentioned? I would love to find out if she has any sisters in little garden somewhere? Besides that I hope we learn the truth about Izayoi’s power eventually…anyway I can’t wait to see what happens next because I heard we might get two OVAs later on, but I think they will be fanservice themed xD
