So as expected, it’s still too early for Isla to disappear (though I’m not sure I understand how an encounter like last week was enough to put her into maintenance mode for two days). That being said, I think the most important part about this week’s episode was that thing that was said about the black market syndicate being taken out while Isla was out. An entire crime syndicate was eradicated so quickly after a single incident? I understand that the place where Marcia was found was probably their base of operations, but isn’t that a bit too easy?
I assuming now that this whole business with the black market is dead, we’re right back to Isla’s lifespan. The lack of previews in this show is somewhat worrying…are we back to episodic business as usual next week? Or will there be another mini-arc to carry us to the end? Given the trouble that Isla and Tsukasa have had with their retrievals up to now, it’s hard to imagine how Tsukasa will be able to retrieve Isla when the time comes, especially with the relationship they’re building.
