The death flag last week was a little bit too obvious to ignore. It looks like Mitsuo got his chance to play the hero for Chiharu. Things are starting to ramp up now that they’ve started the dogfights. I dunno how much of a hint we got about Ignacio, but he seems to be trusted enough to be Claire’s bodyguard. I guess he’s been doing that all this time? So he works for the higher-ups?
From the preview, it looks like Kal-el will decide to take off next week. I wonder why, though. Mitsuo is already dead. Is he going to try and get revenge? What will that accomplish? From the looks of things, he’ll pair up with Ariel since Claire and Ignacio were taken into shelter. The preview shows a scene with an injured Ariel followed by a scene of a seemingly okay Ariel, though, which kinda confuses me.
