Well, there’s the romantic element. I guess that had to show up eventually. Besides that, it looks like the enemy aliens might have a hive mind. Excuse me while I pretend to look surprised. Very often, seemingly mindless invading species tend to have that characteristic. It makes fighting them easier, though, since they just have to beat the queen. Also, convenient Nobunaga flashbacks are convenient.
Is Asao supposed to play a bigger role in this show? I was guessing that they would eventually return to the school setting. I mean, they’re wearing uniforms in the preview, but I don’t think those are the same. Training should theoretically be over now, right? So I guess now everything else is missions? Looks like more E-Gene Holders might be introduced next week. I guess the more intellectual figures tend to have more utilitarian abilities. Seems a little obvious, but kinda makes them feel more useless in my mind.
