Gosick – Episode 18 – The Jet-Black Train Carries Several Lies

Posted on May 26 2011

In this final part of the YuleBlog three part update, we ride a train. Baccano! happens mostly on a train, and it was great. I have high hopes for this one.


Alright, here we go. Super fun train episode time. And we start by explaining that murder. And now we have our new throwaway side characters. Let’s see if they turn out to be the ones who die, the ones who are important to this part, or are just Albert in disguise again. Hey, if it happened once, it could happen again.

So now we’re not even getting into names? Oh I get it. The trains name is Masquerade. No point in telling names. Reflection pipe. Something very strange is going on here. And it seems that these people aren’t who they say they are.

Oh hey, a dead body. That’s always cool. So now we’re on a train that is mostly controlled by two different groups, and someone is dead. This is a lot like Baccano! I had a feeling it would be. So now that we’re one less person, we can change into a maid outfit. Yay for fanservice!

I like this plan. Let’s all go eat food. This is an interesting game. One that Kujo is too unlucky to play. Poisoned water now? How cliche. This is the most dramatic train ride I’ve ever seen. And why does everyone have a gun?

So we’re derailing the train now? We’ll have to go stop the train before we all die. Looks like some people are dying before we get the chance. Oh goody, a bomb. Not just any bomb, but one on a bridge to take out the train. This isn’t a Masquerade, it’s a cliche train.

I didn’t know Victorique could shoot a gun. She must have learned it in a book. Now that we’re all safe, let’s get off the front of a moving train. I wonder where that box that I’m just now mentioning went. Oh here it is.

So this box shows someone’s life after they die. But this one is still in progress, since it’s owner is still alive. Seem like he’s a pretty important guy too. I think. Something about science or something.

So that’s it for this episode. It’s not that a lot didn’t happen, it was all just a lot of action that was less talking than entertainment. You’d have to watch the episode for yourself. While you’re at it, make sure to catch the next one too: The Rose-Colored Life is Buried Under Fresh Snow. I never know what to think from these previews, but this one had a pipe shot, so I’m sure it’s fine.


QUESTION TIME! Do you guys love trains as much as I do? Probably not, but what did you think of this episode? The sub plot seemed a little pointless to me, but whatever works I guess.

So, make sure to check out Gosick, and tons of other great shows over on Crunchyroll. While you’re at it, check out Funimation’s new beta site, where even Canada can watch all the hot titles they have over there, including [C], Toriko and their newest addition, Aria the Scarlet Ammo.
