Blast Of Tempest Episode #14 Anime Review

After a major cliffhanger and a two-week break, the last episode of Blast of Tempest ended up being mostly a recap episode. It was a lot better than a lot of full-on recap episodes, but I’m ready for some fully new material. This episode gives us that and, like the previous episode implied, things are looking better than they have been for a while. While there wasn’t much new last time, there was a new cliffhanger to leave us wondering about things for a week, and this episode picks up right from that point. Samon wants Mahiro to kill Yoshino, and now we get plenty of time to find out why. The episode consists largely of cutting back and forth between Mahiro and Samon’s group, now including Evangeline, and the pair of Yoshino and Hakaze, then joined by a character we got a brief glimpse of last time, Hanemura. While Samon explains the situation and his group’s thoughts on what may be going on, Yoshino and Hakaze run into this new character, a boy who thinks he may be the "mage of Exodus" but isn’t sure of anything that’s going on. Samon’s theories involve the possibility of Yoshino serving the same role, which makes for some major uncertainty when he learns that this new person has emerged to fill that hole. This should force Samon to reevaluate the situation and come up with some new objectives, which would then change the course of this second half of the series from the direction that it seemed like it may have been heading toward.
