The person in-charge of episode-blogging Jormungand isn’t responding to my calls due to his busy life, so I’ll be completing the first-half of the episode blogs for him. Well, that was a nice ride for the first-half of this badass arms dealer series. If Sakamichi no Apollon brings out my masochistic side, this show strokes my sadistic side. No review would be up for the entire series until Fall 2012′s end. These two episodes already solidifies my earlier thoughts about this series as one of the very good, if not excellent, series of this year.
