Occult Academy 7 – UFO sighting
August 19, 2010
In episode 7 of Occult Academy (Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin), we tag along with Maya, as she attempts to get information on the alien invasion. Prepare to be amazed!
Despite her disdain for the occult, Maya Kumashiro attempts to investigate a mysterious crop circle. She and Fumiaki are followed by several people, including her friends from school.
This episode was dead on with the ambiance it brought to several scenes, especially the night-time UFO-chasing scenes. Such scenes should be filled with fog-shrouded country roads at night.
And now they really kicked off the final arc, right? Mmm, no. We got trolled again.
The great thing about this episode is that, when Maya found out that we all got trolled, she unloaded on the person yanking our chain. This was very unexpected and came across (to me) with some very convincing, complicated emotions. This was one of the best scenes in any series all season.
In the end, chasing UFOs, brings you close encounters with absolute hoaxes. What was interesting, though, was the credibility and complexity of emotions that welled up in the aftermath.
