I still think this series shows a lot of promise, but I don’t think I can find anything specific to point out in this episode that was impactful. I’m still really interested to see where the series is going, but this episode felt almost like “necessary setup”. If the entire series focuses on how much we can really trust the unknown Yaha-kui, it could be entertaining to see how different people react and justify their doubts and such. So I guess what I’m saying is…I’m on board?
Well, this is better than the “appearing in front of the eardrums” thing the other guy said. It’s likely not even a sound at all, but rather directly making the brain “hear” the words. So sure…soaking in the brain.
Japan in particular? Is it because he landed here and Shindo told him the place or was this country his target?
You have three hours to find a megaphone…good luck. I’d think a negotiator would want more details than this, but meh…what do I know?
They’re making it sound like Shindo’s gone native and joined the other side. In which case, I feel like I would be asking what the alien might have done to convince someone as respected and proficient as Shindo. Do they think he’s being controlled?
Shindo’s phone wasn’t in airplane mode? What a terrible flyer.
The fact that Yaha-kui is being fabricated like this is kinda interesting. Is he adapting to the human form he detects or is this his true form?
Side note: I really like the song playing here. Reminds me of the music from Interstellar.
Weird…how does Shindo know here that Yaha-kui wants to see the cell phone? Because he wants to learn how to communicate? That’s the only connection I can make.
Looks like he read your emails, buddy. Good thing that phone didn’t have any wireless service…imagine if the sentient alien got hold of the internet.
Wait, these passengers have to survive for 30 days on airplane food? The horror…
The math checks out here, but it does raise an important question. Why do the passengers need to be released all at once? You could let some of them out, right? Perhaps Shindo is trying to avoid causing a panic or something since everyone would want to go first. I guess this makes Shindo’s future negotiations easier since he can offer to release the processed passengers as payment.
The king coming out to talk with the dog? I’m assuming that’s meant to symbolize Yaha-kui’s conversation with humanity, but yeesh…that’s harsh, man.
Uhh…what? I’m assuming this means that it’s up to each person to decide whether Yaha-kui is an ally or an enemy. Seems a little…odd.
