In the third episode of The Monster with 21 Faces a heightened sense of urgency hangs over every moment. Both Japanese authorities and the criminal group are becoming more desperate to get what they want. In the second episode both sides were feeling each other out, trying to gain info on how they were going to play the game. In this chapter the stakes have risen considerably. The Monster with 21 Faces is more emboldened and, in turn, more dangerous.
One aspect of the podcast that I have failed to comment on yet are the brief, yet informative, introductions. We get details about Yokai, a class of supernatural monster. They do a good job in being a metaphor to The Monster with 21 Faces while also providing the listener with an intriguing bit of Japanese lore.
A criticism I have with this episode is with the “Next time on The Monster with 21 Faces” segment. Sections of dialogue from the next episode are played, giving the listener something to look forward to. In this case I feel the choice affects the cliffhanger that the episode ended on. Another alternative would have been nice. Despite this, I’m still looking forward to the fourth episode and hearing what The Monster does next.
