Fans have been waiting for Season 2 of the seinen Shadows House anime for a year. Here’s an update on what happened in Season 1.
Kodoani.com – Shadows House is a popular seinen anime that started airing back in 2021. The story takes place in a gothic setting, where a giant mansion is inhabited by curious creatures. Childish figures roamed around their room, coating every area with soot while another child-looking child followed and cleared the soot. The chase? The Shadow is an exact replica of the human-looking child.
The main character, Emilico, is a Living Doll happily serving her owner Kate. In contrast, Kate is much more serious and gentle, and tends to keep to herself. The two of them quickly become friends and realize there are dark secrets the mansion is trying to keep from them. With Season 2 of Shadows House now premiering, here’s a quick recap of the main events that happened in Season 1.Soot is both powerful and dangerous in Shadows House.
Soot is both powerful and dangerous in Shadows House
Since the Shadow’s emotions could not be distinguished from their faces, the Living Dolls had to decipher their feelings through soot. Usually, when they feel angry or anxious – any negative emotion – they start emitting soot. Each Shadow has a unique shape in the way that their soot winds through the air.
However, soot is more than just a portal to their emotions – it’s also a source of strength. Shadows have special abilities with their powers such as Kate who can move things, John who can destroy objects and Louise, who can use her soot to force others to take orders. mine. However, soot is also dangerous. When left unattended, it can gather into dangerous swarms known as Scorches, who wreak havoc on living Dolls. But perhaps its most insidious property is when it is mixed with coffee. If a Living Doll drank coffee laced with soot, they would be brainwashed into absolute loyalty to Grandpa.
The noble house is hiding a secret
A mysterious Shadow named God’s Grandfather. A mansion filled with traps forces the Living Doll and Shadow to stay in the Noble House. Coffee has the ability to brainwash. The adults are hiding something and Emilico and Kate are determined to find out exactly what it is. While Shadows House Season 1 doesn’t reveal much about what exactly Lord Grandfather is planning, there are some key hints.
The first is that the Living Dolls are human, and these children are brought in from a neighboring village. Since the village relies heavily on the production of charcoal – which the Noble House provides – the villagers are brainwashed into believing that their children will live better as servants. The children are given special coffee and taken to a room where they are surrounded by shapeless shapeshifters who choose the child they will copy, who will later become Their live dolls. What’s more terrifying is that as time goes on and the Living Doll and the Shadow get closer, the Shadow will eventually consume the Doll.
Rum Shadows House’s Fate
Of all the Living Dolls/Shadows partnerships, Rum and her Shadows Master Shirley don’t have as close a relationship as the others. Traditionally, the masters named their Live Dolls, but since Shirley barely interacted with Rum, the latter gave her own name. Rum is very shy and prefers to communicate through a ribbon tied around his finger. During the premiere, both are very awkward and Rum is clearly extremely nervous and worried that failure in the event will lead to bad fates for both of them.
With Emilico’s help, Rum was finally able to establish a connection with Shirley. Sadly, their relationship wasn’t enough to save them from a failed premiere. Shirley turns into soot and disappears into the wind, while Rum’s fate remains a mystery – until, when it’s finally revealed, she’s survived and even has a little friend turned into a strip. ribbon.
Shadows House part one has its own ending
Most likely because the studio wasn’t sure if a second part would be made, Shadows House chose a rather morbid and ambiguous ending for Season 1. Edward, a Shadow adult residing upstairs. second but manages to move up to the prestigious third floor, trying to prove that Kate is doing something that could put the House of Nobles in danger. After failing to do so, as well as breaking the rules, Edward was reprimanded by his grandfather – but that was his punishment.
At the end of the previous episode, the Living Dolls sang a cleaning song and only the lower half of their faces were shown as they performed their respective duties of serving their Shadow Master. While it was deliberately made ambiguous, it was clear that the Live Dolls had been brainwashed once again. These suspicions were confirmed when Emilico suggested that everything was “for the sake of the Shadows family.”
