Gatchaman Crowds Insight Episode 9: Go with the flow…or else

[Commie] Gatchaman Crowds insight - 09 [B003D108].mkv_snapshot_06.32_[2015.09.17_06.27.40]

This line from the screenshot must be spoken by someone who has never experienced narcotics…or alcohol. But that aside, the Kuus remain a somewhat interesting thought experiment now that they’ve dialed it up. I think it’s very easy to dismiss them as extreme, but I actually don’t actually see them as that unreasonable. In a sense, the Kuus take standard mob mentality and amp it up to 100. Say what you will about the people depicted in this series…I really think we live in a similar world where argument is seen as a waste of time or beneath people.

I realize I’ve gotten behind in this series. I just haven’t been really motivated to watch it. I’ll keep it around, but I think my coverage of this show will remain sporadic depending on when other series air. That being said, there is one final thought I want to say about this episode. They’re bringing Rizumu back into the scene because of how rampant the Kuus have become…it’s assumed that he will help with calling the Kuus’ actions into question. That being said, is he meant to become an ally or reveal himself as the true enemy all along by taking advantage of people influenced by the Kuu? I could honestly see either option.
