There was a fair bit of controversy surrounding the ending of the previous episode. However, I am personally still enjoying the series and it's characters. That being said, as we draw closer to the end of the first season, the story is getting more brutal.
Remember in my review for episode one when I said that the gore would be a selling point for this series...well...I might have been wrong, in part at least, because this show really drives home one other element to the show and its characters that I will explain in this episode review without spoiling anything truly major.
The gang of Devil Hunters find themselves trapped on the 8th floor. Each window and door leads to the rooms on the opposite side of the hallway and the stairs loop infinitely to the same spot. No chance of escape, no way to call for help, and almost all hope is lost.
This episode added more depth to some of the characters and set the tone for the seriousness of situations the group will be going up against in the coming episodes, but it doesn't shy away from it's usual humour, mostly focusing on acts of intimacy being used as motivation, but also there are the jokes surrounding the two devils of the group, Power and Denji, who act like a pair of troublesome kids, who get given gum as a bribe for being good and following orders as well as showing respect to Hayakawa. The fun doesn't really stop in this show and that's why I love it, so if it continues at this quality, it will be an incredible show all-round.

Death Note is one of those anime you hear about and see a lot of when exploring the weeb wide web, and it is often praised as one of the best manga and anime by a large number of people. Despite this, I have yet to watch the anime, and I have never read the books, until now that is, so I am going into this story with no knowledge of what could happen or what should happen, making it an interesting reading journey to say the least.
