How would you price episode 22 by
Undead Accident? Group rating: 4.2


Can it’s? Did we simply get two unimaginable episodes of? Undead Accident in a row? With no sequence of flashbacks in sight to connect to it? You understand what which means, my fellow Undead-Heads: get out your greatest forks and knives, together with the nicest china you’ve got. This week we’re partying like kings and queens.

Now, if I needed to be a nitpicky outdated idiot and search for flaws with this bountiful blessing earlier than digging in, I would need to admit that “Profile” is flawed somewhat simply as troublesome as final week’s masterful “Memento Mori” as a result of it does not supply the identical satisfying storyline. As an alternative of seeing Fuko dwell out a life-time in Andy’s recollections, this episode takes a extra summary route by specializing in a duel between paranormal incarnations of Andy and Victor. On the one hand, it is a disgrace to lose the great ambiance Undead Accident‘S quick detour to turn into an actual western. This new method additionally means there are many attention-grabbing exposition dumps and exploding geysers of blood from physique components to interrupt up all of the chatter.

In different phrases: that is it Undead Accident working within the lifeless middle of his consolation zone, and I am completely into it. The affirmation of Victor’s motives, specifically his love for Juiz, makes him an attention-grabbing character as a substitute of only a cool, pallet-switched antagonist to combat. The combat between Andy and Victor additionally will get the present operating wild with the gory goodness, and out of doors of a tacky CGI sequence with clashing blasts of blood, what actually mattered to me was how the motion was dealt with this week.

The supply of exposition and character growth is even higher. I am unable to keep in mind the final time I had that a lot pleasure stepping into the weeds with power-ups and explanations of expertise. First comes the revelation that Andy’s dialog with Fuko final week gave him an entire new perspective on life after loss of life. As an alternative of being a literal and ‘goal’ one who can’t think about life with out mind perform, Andy has turn into somebody who believes within the existence of a soul. Fuko’s affect adjustments Andy as an individual, and that has a helpful profit: like Victor, Andy can now regenerate from any a part of his physique, not simply his head, as a result of his earlier beliefs now not restrict him.

The present then instantly builds on that concept of ​​rising the Negator powers with the growth of their customers’ moods by displaying how Fuko’s Unluck can adapt itself to what every of its targets would personally contemplate “unfortunate.” For Victor, ache means nothing greater than absolute confinement do. So as a substitute of crushing him with a meteor, Fuko’s unhealthy luck traps him in a Pokéball. I imply, simply… how freaking cool is that, man? It is such a inventive and attention-grabbing method to develop our heroes’ talents, and so far as the strategies of killing God go, I’ve to say it feels fairly doable. What a cool present, I swear. Do not even remind me that the season is ending quickly. My coronary heart simply cannot deal with it.


Undead Accident is at the moment streaming on Hulu.
