After last week’s lackluster episode, this one made up for that. FINALLY, the Arc has been released and Yuliy is reunited in a warming reconciliation with his father. Certainly, this episode hit me hard to the point of feeling teary, which I did not expect. It was fitting in this episode at the point the series is at to cover many answers Yuliy had been seeking for so long about his father. It turned out to be a great episode.
Japanese Original Title: (アビーズの思い出)
Willard and other Jaegers come across something important in regards to the Arc, in Yuliy’s homeland, Dogville. Yevgraf is growing ever so impatient for the Arc to be released, counting on Yuliy being able to do so. Yuliy visits the keeping place of the Sirius Arc and is reunited with his father.
Father and Son Reunion: The main highlight of this episode was, without a doubt, Yuliy’s reunion with his father. Upon breaking the seal of the Arc, he sees his father’s past memories, leading to the point of sacrificing himself. Yuliy up until this point had so many questions about his father and they finally were answered. Yuliy’s reunion with his father was so heartwarming and it moved me so much. I shed a tear or two, which I was not expecting too – but it was a beautiful moment.
Useless Scientist: The beginning of the episode was really dumb and wasted time focusing on Yevgraf’s scientist Klarwein. His assault on Bishop and Yuliy was out of desperation, just so he would be acknowledged by Yevgraf whom had always ignored Klarwein, with good reason. Klarwein was a useless character to the story. Glad he is gone.
New Findings: Willard and the other Jaegers make an important discovery regarding the Arc of Sirius. The holy land is where the Sirius people and Arc were born from. The Sirius people created a book full of information, that only the chosen ones of the Arc could obtain – know how to use also. All so interesting, pity they couldn’t have mentioned this interesting information earlier in the series.
Themes and Trivia
Sarin: The name of the Holy Land where the Sirius history and Ancestors lie
Yuliy’s Mother: It was interesting to learn this episode that Yuliy’s mother was human.
Infection: The Vampires’ have been in search of a cure for a mysterious, unexplainable infection which kills them without warning.
Damn, Yuliy and his father’s reunion was the best highlight of this episode. It was great that Yuliy got to see his father’s past memories, leading up to his father’s decision protecting the family and sealing the Arc away – so others cannot obtain it. Yuliy father sealed himself away with the Arc mainly to stop the pointless killings of outsiders, who learn of the Arc’s Existence. Yuliy father’s friend was to be one of those people, which lead to Yuliy father deciding to sacrifice himself. It was a tearful and warming reunion for Yuliy with his father who had passed away.
It was an important moment for Yuliy to learn about what had happened to his father. Yuliy wanted to continue to protect the pride of the Sirius and no more sacrifice of lives what his father had tried to do. But Yuliy now wants to find an alternative way to seal the Arc, which he has made his mission now. I loved it that now Yuliy has a clearer mindset of what he wishes to achieve; it was a beautiful scene with his father. I cannot get the whole scene out of my head.
This week’s episode started out dumb, wasted time on Klarwein, but eventually turned into one of the most touching episodes yet in Sirius The Jaeger. Ending on a perfect note, the ARC has FINALLY been revealed. The next couple of episodes should be good and I’m excited.
Father’s Love Is Forever
Great episode all around. We got to learn what happened to Yuliy’s father and more vital information on the Arc. It’s been set up now for an interesting conclusion because let me tell you, I have a feeling that Sirius The Jaeger will end in two episodes. It has not been confirmed yet but it’s an obvious observation.
