So, eight episodes in and Sio finally gets a chance to gain some confidence. I’m guessing this is supposed to emphasize the fact that her e-genes come from an actual prominent military commander, whereas most of the other historical figures are just great minds. That aside, does someone want to explain to me why the old lady decided to go to the battle in person? Does she have e-genes too? Or was she just painting a target on herself for no reason? That’s all it looked like to me.
Next week, it looks like Asao finally becomes relevant (you know…more than just appearing in dreams). Based on what I’m seeing in the preview, it looks like a sacrifice may have to be made to give Sio more power. It seems a bit early to kill off a character, but I guess she hasn’t been doing much else up to now. We’ll see if she lives.
