Duty of Adults

Bruno may have been an expendable character but he certainly did a good job in contributing to Ao’s growth, as evidenced by the report he made where he wrote down “Never let children die”. For me, it reflects his frustration knowing that Team Pied Piper let an untrained newbie engage in combat. It’s not that he’s against the idea of children doing the fighting but his resolve emphasizes the survival of the youth through proper procedure and training.

In effect, his character reminded me that as annoying as they may be, laws exist to protect people and in this case, Bruno’s complaints against Pied Piper’s actions are within the bounds of reason.

It feels awkward for me to see Ao leveling up his capabilities considering he just joined the gang. Well, as with most protagonists, we could always blame it to ‘talent’.

So we finally see the antagonist making his appearance backed up with force powers and whatshit. He also seem familiar with Nirvash and may have knowledge to the events prior to this series.

    Definitely getting better with each episode. Starting to feel the E7 vibe I think (based on the impression of the very few episodes of E7 I watched a while ago). Not sure if I like it much, but at least it doesn’t get on my nerves like most anime in the Gundam franchise.

    Well, this introduced a lot of interesting angles and not just on the antagonist but on Generation Bleu. I got a feeling it’s not milk and cookies they offer. Despite their good-natured shell, I still sense that these guys are up to no good even if they ally themselves with Ao.

    Well, I don’t see any “good guys” in this show. Right from the first episode, that has been pretty clear. I also get the impression that Generation Bleu could easily fracture if they lose certain key persons in the group. Bruno may turn out to be one of them. In the end, I think what it will come down to is not so much who is “good”, but more of who will support Ao.
