Not sure what to say about this episode. On one side, the Jin and Haitani part is fairly straightforward with Haitani revealing the Players and causing havoc while Jin rushes to save people. However, that old dude and Kouga is just…I dunno. I’m not sure I understand the logic behind his tests.
Saving Konoha instead of the three girls was the wrong choice. Going with the girl and trying to save everyone was the wrong choice. Fighting the mech instead of running ahead is the wrong choice. Is he simply trying to show that self-preservation is the correct form of justice? If so, what’s up with that first test? Oh well…the test continues next week, so maybe we’ll get an answer.
