Two new Kings in a row
(pictures on this page from Dark Kingdom Playground and Stayka's Dark Kingdom Home).
Next to enter was Nephrite, with the same assignment. But quite in the same time appeared a rival to him, Zoisite, who mostly popped up into the court room whenever he could mock Nephrite's failures...
Actually, before he appeared, I was looking at the show quite distractingly.
I was starving from anime and this was the only new thing aired at the time,
so I endured the watching of quite repetitive "Monster of the Week"
first episodes, hoping it might spice up.
I don't lust after him (especially as he looks as gay as Mr Gay and I'm not
one for lost causes ^_^ ), but I'm really really fond of him. I just fall for
cute killers, go figure.
Zoisite's own assignment was to find the Ginzuishou in order to free Metallia from her prison.
But after a few episodes, Nephrite, who used a black cristal to spot people
whose energy was at its top, decided to try and find the Ginzuishou with it,
hereby taking over Zoisite's mission.
And then enters the last one
And then appeared that scene :
No, it's not what you think it is. Remember that this is a show for kids. Around age 10, I think.
And the close-up was cute also :
So in fact, Zoi had gone straight from the throne room to what turned out to be Kunzite's castle, and to find some comfort in his company. He was sitting at his feet, crying, and Kunzite stroked his hair gently, reassuring him and telling him that they could get rid of Nephrite in time.
That was Kunzite's first appearance ever. Neat, uh? He remained in the dark all the time, but talk about an introduction...
We learned all at once that he was the Shitennou's leader, the most powerful (he literately radiates power), and he was also engaged in a peculiar relationship with his lieutenant, even though all we'd seen about Kings so far was all about treachery.
And he also, for some reason, was the object of Zoisite's love, something that
most people would have doubt existed before he appeared... Zoi being definitely
a quick-tempered homicidal youth who seems to hate everyone and everything but
himself... and Kunzite.
