Can we just take a minute to acknowledge this? Everyone agrees that Inaho is INSANELY intelligent, but no one has an explanation as to why. Top of his class and cool as a cucumber, he thinks up plans to destroy kataphracts in minutes, while professional military couldn’t defeat a single one in nearly two decades of battle.
And yet we’re supposed to believe that he is a normal human? I don’t think so! Bring on the DNA mods or the secret android project or the adopted martian baby explanations. I refuse to believe he is simply a savant.
He’s an AI construction planted by the ancient martians who haven’t died out, or have transferred their consciousness to the their robotic constucts and actually are manipulating humanity for nefarious means.
. That’s my theory. ..ummm until next episode where my theory will be dashed…inevitably.
You know, I was bracing myself for Slaine torture, or brainwashing or something…
And when Saazbaum was like, yup I was trying to kill the princess and here is why, I was. ?.okay…that’s not so bad.
But, now I’m wondering if Saazbaum is still even more fucking dangerous to Slaine even if he never raises his a finger against him. What is Saazbaum’s end game?
Like, maybe the truth will be Slaine ’ undoing…and that’s all kind of fucked up, but in some way, much more complex than I expected in an anime.
I just wish the princess wasn’t so damn naive and idealistic, that idealism is lovely in principle but it’s no use in her situation.
Just a few thoughts
- saazbaum telling Slaine the truth (well I assume he’s telling the truth) surprised me.
- I don’t think the princess is dead. And weirdly that last scene surprised me, not in the obvious way, but because it wasn’t fanservicy to me at all. That entire scene was so clinical and non-gratuitous, and I didn’t think that was possible with a shower type scene with naked female characters, but there you go. -well other than the writer’s choice to make it a shower scene…yeah okay.
- I found Rayet’s story interesting, I’m glad they are focusing on the female characters and giving them interesting motivations and plots.
-I ship the captain with her second.
-for some reason I don’t trust the doctor. I think he’s a spy
Finally, YAY SLAINE WASN’T TORTURED OR BRAINWASHED….yet.
Some WIP that I’m only uploading here bc I’m really proud for once.
This took me hours. ; v;
(( aella-a & lunarsensitive - look at our baby u wu))
It’s lovely. ^_^ He has a very contemplative look about him, and I love the way the cat is looking at him. Cats love him; everyone loves him. How can anyone not love him?
He’s probably thinking about Alex..
