I’m not sure how I’m supposed to react to this. On the one hand, sitting through a season of Akari desperately trying to save Daemonia probably would have been boring. On the other hand…she just decides to hear what they have to save before killing them and that’s alright? Sounds suspect to me. I guess your mind really does get twisted after you kill someone.

Oh well, that just means I have to turn my attention to the other vulnerable ones on the team…the most obvious one being Luna so far based on the brief glimpse at her troubles. That cliche of the Moon reflecting off the Sun is getting kinda old, though, isn’t it? Maybe Seira will entertain me more…

Genei wo Kakeru Taiyou Episode 2: She remembered what she did pretty quick

I’m disappointed…they have a convenient way to keep the girls from facing social ramifications for killing people. I guess they want to focus on the emotional consequences instead. Don’t get me wrong, though…it’s interesting that they’re actually having these girls fully aware that they are killing people despite the fact that they are saving others. Murder is still murder…even if it’s done for the good of others.

So far, it doesn’t look good for Akari. She’s well on the way to falling victim to these Daemonia that she must fight. She seems the most obviously vulnerable for now. Possible outcomes: she lets a Daemonia in and they find out that there actually is a way for Daemonia to revert when they save her. Other possibility is that she’s just a diversion for someone else who will turn…Seira perhaps?

Genei wo Kakeru Taiyou First Impressions: That was pretty dark

Hmm…not quite what I was hoping, but the show is definitely darker than I was expecting. Looks like we’ve got some sort of creatures attacking mankind and our main character Akari Taiyou is someone who can fight against them. It looks like the creatures manifest in some sort of alternate dimension after possessing a human. But there’s only so much we have to go on…leaving a lot of questions.

What is the origin of these creatures? Why did Akari repeat a day and what was the meaning of the battle that she saw the first time that day occurred? What really killed Akari’s mother? This show seems different from the standard in that destroying these evil creatures actually results in real-world ramifications. Actual people are dying…are these girls held responsible for these deaths? Well, the opening song sounds pretty good, so I’m interested.
