Episode 1 of season two of Shadows House reveals a painful truth about Barbie and Barbara.
The following has extras to Volume 1 of Shadows House part 2.
After almost a year since the first part of Shadows House ended, Living Dolls and Shadows is back. Because Season 1 had to create a non-manga ending, Season 2 gave a pretty quick and perfunctory summary of what happened to some of the Living Dolls at the end of the first season before quickly moving on.
Season 1 revealed that the Living Doll had been drinking coffee, leading to extreme loyalty to the Dark House. Most of the Dolls have recovered like Emilico and Shaun but for some reason Lou and Ricky are still under the control of the force. The season two premiere focuses on a rather unexpected character: Barbie and her owner Barbara.
One of the Live Dolls introduced in the first season of Shadows House was the Mean Doll named Barbie. She always has a shark-toothed smile on her face and as the Bearer of the Star, she is tough on everyone, and makes sure to abide by the manor’s rules. Barbie isn’t very popular, with Shadow masters like Kate, who see her abusing her powers as a Star Bearer. While it seems like she’s been completely brainwashed to the point where she’s blindly loyal to the Shadows family, that doesn’t seem to be the whole reason why.
The episode opens with Barbie and Barbara walking down a hallway where Emilico, Rum, and Shaun once explored – the same hallway where a rain of arrows would shoot out if anyone tried to leave the mansion. Barbie skillfully uses arrows to destroy a large number of burn marks that roam the hallways, but there’s just too much for her to deal with. Suddenly, a cloaked figure glides past Barbie and disappears shortly after.
As recent successful Debut candidates and the only ones who have proven their abilities, Kate, Louise and John are led to a training room to further develop their powers. However, none of them have much control over them. The better they are at their soot powers, the more valuable they are in Grandpa’s eyes. And in Shadows House, being appreciated more by the Lord Grandfather is the only way to rise and survive.
Furthermore, even without power, the value of Shadows is determined by how much soot they produce. Their soot is turned into soot and will be sent to the village near the manor. This would then make the villagers increasingly trust the Shadows House – a form of manipulation to make them much more agreeable in giving up their children to become Living Dolls.
Of all the children of the Shadows, Barbara is the one who produces the highest amount of soot – approximately 60%. There’s so much soot and trying to control it is causing Barbara so much pain that she can’t speak. As a result, Barbara’s value is increased, but in return, she suffers great pain and sadly, Barbara is seen as a standard that the other Shadows must aspire to.
Barbie and Barbara don’t get as much attention as the other Living Dolls and their owners, so seeing them at the beginning of Season 2 and reappearing in the after credits means they’ll likely have a big role to play. than. In the post-credits scene, Barbara is seen sitting sadly under a tree when Barbie runs up to her. The old Barbie is completely different from the way she behaves today. Instead of a scowl, she looked fresh and cheerful, exuding the same enthusiasm as Emilico. While the relationship between Emilico and Kate was more like friends and equality, something definitely happened after the debut of Barbie and Barbara that changed Barbie and made her more of a protector of her owner. multiply his Darkness.
