Well, it seems like things are starting to get political. I’m a bit worried about Tsubasa and Gel’s idealism in trying to end conflict. I tend to agree with Hajime’s apprehension about Gel’s proposal for a unified world. I understand where he is coming from, though. I suppose if you could read other people’s minds, it would be easy to say that conflict and argument are unneeded. I’ve always thought that debating with someone is the best way to understand their perspective.
Surely Gel is destined to lose this election, right? I mean, it’s possible that he wins it initially, but I can’t imagine that it will last. I feel like the show is walking a dangerous route. With all of that aside, I still don’t fully understand what Rui was trying to accomplish. I get that people are now completely distrustful of the CROWDS, but how would things have been any different if he had let himself die? Did he think that they would focus on the human perpetrator and forgive the CROWDS?
