Futayo vs Gin is one of the best choreographed fights I’ve seen in a very long time. Horizon itself sets a pretty high bar but I’d actually go as far as saying that since the 3 battles episode (to decide whether to save Hoirzon), this has been the most adrenaline pumping of the two seasons. It’s quite rare for me to want to rewatch a scene and yet there I was, replaying it for the visceral rush.
While my word-smithing is quite insufficient to lavish appropriate praise on this visually titillating experience, it wouldn’t do the show justice for me to simply say “go watch it for yourselves” when the events in this episode are built up using the previous 23 as a foundation. Nevertheless, there you go!
Oh, and sound directing was especially great this episode too.
Since she stole the episode with her “exceptional” choice of words and feline grace, let’s end with more Futayo. With her hair down.
