Well, I’ll be frank…I was really ready to hate Alisa in the first half of the episode until I realized she was refusing to leave the crew and save herself. It looks like she’ll just be playing the role of helping Lenka evolve further. From this episode, Lenka seemed pretty adaptable on the battle, picking up the role of his New-Type weapon pretty quickly. If that’s really case, he should make an interesting protagonist.
Side note, though…doesn’t the eat and reload mechanic of the New-Type God Arc seem a bit too overpowered? I get that it makes Lenka and Alisa basically solo machines, but it seems like far too much of a gap from the old types. The enormous Aragami from the end of this week’s episode also brings an interesting question. Where is this show headed? Are we planning on having Lenka defeat the giant Aragami? Or are all of the flashbacks about the Oracle cell meant to suggest a specific ending?
