Madlax Episode 4


"Temptation - Ask"

It struck me, four episodes into this show, that I don't really know (or maybe it's that I just don't care) what's going on in Madlax. I don't really know any of the characters, either. I haven't really identified with any of them, and I don't really feel like I'm involved in the story at all.

This episode is another abstract, scattered sort of episode, where Madlax only appears for a few moments, and is connected to the events for some weird reason that really isn't explained. Also, just to figure out what's going on in this episode (the story beyond the random things you seem to be seeing on the screen), requires far more critical thinking than I think anyone wants to spend. So, basically, the story's just this obscure, slow-moving thing that doesn't really involve any characters we care about.

I really wish I knew what this show was about, or had even the slightest inkling about where it's going. I figure Margaret and Madlax have to get together and have adventures eventually, but they're nowhere near that. Maybe next episode, Madlax will actually be a main character in...

Im quite suprised that you dont like this serie, damn this story goes DEEP. I watched till episode 12 and still im not really sure where it is all about, however the story really interests me, you get to know more about the characters backgrounds in every episode, i cant wait till the next episodes comes out.
