Tenrou: Sirius the Jaeger Episode 2: Deprived Talent

Episode 2 of Sirius the Jaeger, picks up after Yuliy’s shot. He awaken’s to find himself recovering in the large home of a Doctor Kisuke. Deprived Talent largely focuses on the Doctor and his daughter, Saki. I didn’t even require much foreshadowing to predict that he would die. Saki’s mother had already died years prior. They come to Tokyo looking for the vampires.

Suspicious killings begin to occur at the hands of a terrorist group, Hyakko party. Researchers, politicians and wealthy individuals are being murdered, all this of course points to the Doctor as probably next. I’ll admit when Yuliy is helping Saki plant tomatoes my eye’s glazed over. It was a sweet moment but dull.

However, my interest picked up when they released that the killings are related to the creation of artificial heart organs. I was interested in this new plot point. It also turns out that the maid of Doctor Kisuke sells him out to the female vampire from the previous episode. What struck me was the fact that she didn’t heal her leg like other vampire in culture. Vampire mythology is varied from series to series, but they usually only die from stakes in the heart or fire.

If vampires don’t have the ability of healing everything completely the stakes when they battle will be higher. Speaking of which, the battle between the royal vampire and Yuliy was enjoyable. Her father becoming a vampire made me feel for her, now orphaned I wonder what her place is in the series now. The ending revelation that Yuliy’s brother was the one that shot him and is working with the vampire’s was truly surprising. It’s been done before, but I still wasn’t expecting it.
