Hidan no Aria 08 — Jeanne D’Arc

Having the descendants of Holmes and Lupin fight apparently wasn’t dumb enough, so they decided to make the latest villain a descendant of Jeanne D’Arc.

Ok. I don’t know what these people are thinking. At least Holmes and Lupin being enemies kind of makes sense… but Jeanne D’Arc? Seriously? If you’re going to do a revisionist history, at least put some semblance of logic behind it instead of just tossing out random names.

Otherwise, it was a pretty uneventful episode. Two thirds are spent finishing up the battle with Durandal, and the rest on a reset ending. Much of the episode didn’t make much sense— Shirayuki randomly disappears and reappears, Kinji shoots at Shirayuki because she isn’t sufficiently embarrassed, miko costumes deflect bullets, etc., but it’s not like I’m expecting things to make sense at this point.
