The Road Not Taken

I don’t know how close this series is with the original manga plot but if this is how Fujiko puts it then I’ll be damned. It makes perfect sense now why Hyobu and Fujiko parted ways. And oddly enough, both of their methods are correct. Hyobu feels the necessity to kill those related to the Esper Unit thanks to their betrayal while Fujiko plans on using the research gathered by that unit and its affiliates to protect the future of Espers.

And I think, the one who’s hurting the most here is Fujiko. I mean, it takes an incredible amount of resolve to walk the path that she has chosen. Objectively speaking, this is the correct choice. But you know, knowing that you forsake others, your closest friends, your family, your humanity, in order to pave a better future, doesn’t leave a good after-taste. For Fujiko and Hyobu, they have deemed themselves unworthy of salvation.

And I guess this has been their burden. Regardless of the consistency of the plot with the manga, this has been in-character. All of them are. And I guess this is why this series is just good.

With 2 episodes left, let’s see how this series wraps things up.

    That last scene in this episode made me wonder if they intend to have sequels :p. Seems unlikely I guess. Hope the last two episodes are good.
