Despite the lack of action, the showcase of perspectives and character development still proves how good this series is. And while all of them realize how hopeless the situation is, Hajime’s optimism always saves their asses.
Hajime’s unpredictability makes her a perfect foil to Katze’s manipulations. While Katze goes around planting the seeds of deception, Hajime’s transparency may just be the act that they need to at least make the masses aware and think for themselves when the time comes.
And it’s quite amazing. I don’t know if she thought through that idea of hers to go public but at the very least, it divided the opinions of masses about heroes and Galax. The very concept that Rui tries to separate and isolate completely.
Summoner-type characters tend to have it rough when their summoned minions fall and Rui is no different. To be honest, I was expecting something more from him other than his use of strength in numbers. But I guess that will be answered by the upcoming episodes. Before Galax, before Crowds, who was Ninomiya Rui? From where did his ideals stem from? What was it that drove him to develop Galax?
