And we’re back with another new story. I don’t watch live news too often, but is it normal for them to do this “zoom in on the chest and dramatically pan up to the face” motion? Because I would have expected them to just leave the camera pointed at the door of the plane.
What did I just watch? Does this girl really have a trigger word?
“Foreign character is obsessed with Japan” cliche (maybe so much a “cliche” as it is an “overused character archetype”). I didn’t see this character in the opening animation, so I guess he’s not here to join the team.
AHH! It’s back!
Kyouma is randomly visiting the grave of (presumably) his fallen beloved. Is this relevant to the current arc or is it a weekly reminder that we still don’t know his back story?
Hasn’t Mira been on 2-3 missions with Kyouma already? Why are they just now asking these questions and doing these tests? Exposition is great…
I like this line…I’ve always hated the “meaning of life” question.
Kyouma being Kyouma. Now he’s just showing off.
So, a ripped sleeve and that deep footprint from earlier? Does this guy just have superhuman strength or something?
Sigh…there’s always a festival going on. How convenient that the Japanese-obsessed guy manages to run into the only person in the country who hasn’t embraced future tech.
Is it wrong that I feel like this kid’s strength is some sort of “Africans are more athletic” stereotype?
Oh…I wasn’t going to guess she was his sister, but that works. I thought she might be a childhood friend from his warrior days.
It’s a trap!
Kyouma throws the fan with the white end facing Loo, but it magically does a 180 in midair. Also, I’m pretty sure that’s not how physics works. I need to try this with a paper fan some time…
How did this thing lift off before the blades come out? Are there thrusters on the bottom?
Wait…I thought Mira has a coil implanted in her chest now (remember? the one between her breasts?). Why is she still wearing this coil pendant around her neck. Did we go back in time with this episode?
Murder face! This scene was pretty funny.
She’s not wearing the pendant anymore…I guess it’s just part of her ensemble. Seems a bit weird, don’t you think? It’s like wearing a battery around your neck…
NSFW robot gore. They’re really trying to make these robots life-like by giving them red “blood”, huh?
Loser is back!
I know he might sound crazy, but this is actually America’s foreign policy strategy!
Based on everyone’s reactions to this name, it should be pretty obvious that Easter Island is the place from all of Kyouma’s flashbacks.
Episode ends by teasing a scene from Kyouma’s past. Will we be getting the full story next week?
