That first half of the episode was just amazing. The dialogue between Yasako and Isako was just right, and I actually cried when Isako started to break down. Yasako really tried to comfort Isako in the way she would speak to Kyoko, whenever she’s scared. When Kyoko arrived, and asked Isako to save Densuke, she only made things even better.

The rest of the episode built up for the final few episodes of this series. We get a few confirmations of things that the observant ones among us probably already figured out: Nekome and Takeru are brothers, Takeru is the owner of the pink cat with ears, and he basically betrayed Isako out of jealousy towards his brother. I’ve also been reading a few posts from animesuki, and it seems that the reason why Nekome has access to the stronger versions of the Sacchis is because he works for the government, and can basically use them as he pleases.

Also, Densuke indeed is no ordinary dog. I couldn’t catch the details due to my lack of Japanese, but there actually is a chance for both Yasako’s grandfather as 4423’s brother to be alive. Yasako’s grandfather also seemed to know about 4423 before both of them disappeared. The final parts of the episode basically consist out of a chase for Densuke, after Nekome found out that he’s important somehow I must say that it was awesome to see Daiichi in action again. From what I understood is that Densuke is the key to access Coil’s domain, which is what I suspect to be the place where the humanoid illegals live. Hence why both Yasako and Kyoko encountered them.

What’s also interesting is how Nekome refers to Yasako as “sensei”, and how a password to some of the guy’s secret stuff is located inside Nekome’s database. Does this mean that Yasako’s grandfather used to work for the same company that Nekome is working for?

    “but there actually is a chance for both Yasako’s grandfather as 4423’s brother to be alive.”

    -gasp!

    Of course I meant 4423 himself… not his brother. :P

    Still, this is speculation, basically since the one who told Isako that 4423 is dead wasn’t the most trustworthy source (being Takeru and all).

    Nekome didn’t seem to be having much luck in trying to control the black automatons. He may have access to the system, but he’s not in control. He’s got his own agenda, though he may be trying to leverage a connection to the legal bureau to pursue it.

    Yasako’s grandfather was a doctor in the MegaMass hospital, and was treating the first round of Coil victims. We knew that already, at least by implication. We didn’t know that 4423 was a medical case code, however. I wonder who the other case codes belong to.

    Sheer speculation: Takome may himself have been one of the earlier coil victims saved by Yasako’s grandfather. He’s suspicious that MegaMass may have had a direct role in his doctor’s death, and has been trying to use Isako’s imago ability to try to track down his old doctor in the Coil Domain. Note that he didn’t even know about Yasako before this episode; if he had, he probably would have tried to work through her also, or instead. I’m guessing he’ll join the rest of the gang now, and the common enemy will be MegaMass.

    Given that Yasuko’s father, grandfather, uncles, and various other older family members have MegaMass connections, she could probably pick up a lot of information by just asking. But it’s perfectly believable that it doesn’t occur to her.

    - really need to tell me where you download this series (or do you directly get it from the corp?)

  5. r3dking says:

    wao points out that the very first episode shows the 4423 medical code on the folder in the background, in the scene where Yasako first opens the package from her grandfather containing the Dennou glasses. So it’s like a good mystery story! They introduce the necessary clues early on, before you know to look for them. Now I have to go back and re-watch all the earlier episodes to see what else they may have left a clue for.

    The biggest mystery for me is Isako’s background. Where did she learn to code? Where did she get her non-standard pets? Is she related to Yasako through some family connection, such that she might have got a gift from Yasako’s grandfather also?

  6. Sandor Arbitrary Intelligence says:

    The very first series indeed shows many things, Nekome and Tamako appear as well =)

    As far as I got it, Densuke and Isako’s Mojos are mentioned as “Coils life” and are probably a kind of real artificial life (unlike normal, simulated pets – automatons and petmatons) based on the same coil effect.

    There was another name mentioned in the argument between Takeru and Nekome (even more siblings? Don’t tell me Isako will be related to someone too, she’s supposed ot be the lonely char here!) of someone who seems to be in control of those low-level format black automatons >_> Man, theyre scary. And their ability to transfer physical pain sensation back to a target’s via their imago doesn’t look like a space maintenance function, more like asassianation utility. Anyway, Megamass seems to be quite a shady illuminati-type organisation.

  7. hssc says:

    So… Isako has brother-complex, huh?

    My respect for her is now transforming into sappy sympathy… she needs to shape up again

    I also ditto Farrell’s bold yet humanizing performance. The whole show has become a vehicle for actors/actresses to reinven themselves and take on a more prestigious pedigree of works.

    @Emma: it is as much as a procedural as it is noir psychothriller like Hannibal, the latter while gorgeous has descended into symbolic surreàl scenes, which just too prohibited and drownin in it’s own atmosphere and style.

    @Bam: I wish Farrell could always get roles like this that he deserves, he actually can act if allowed. Theres a lot going on too which is good and I’m interested enough in the central mystery, the third episode got me think in particular.

    @Bam: However I’ve been enjoying the characterization of Farrell’s character and Vaughn’s this season, the most recent episode in parts had this Lynchian feel to it. Not as big on the young cop and female cop as much, great to see Vaughn trying a more serious role and he convinces in it.

Knights of Sidonia S2: Battle for Planet Nine review – 73/100

The second season of Sidonia makes a number of mistakes that a lot of second seasons do. That namely being that the anime slows down and introduces characters and conflicts that are often resolved in a undetermined to exist, third season. A new antagonist is introduced, whom does very little in the season and only […]

Knights of Sidonia S2 – 12

Tanikaze’s rendezvous with Benizumie looks to have been cut short as Izana interrupted with some hacker magic. The entire sequence being as uncomfortable and disturbing as you could imagine. I still wonder just what was her goal in doing all this to Tanikaze. Was it some method of killing him or just some really kinky […]

Knights of Sidonia S2 – 11

It’s quite the coincidence that both shows I am covering have decided to use their last episodes to make up for the season’s shortcomings. This will be a short post as while action packed episodes are great to watch, they make it hard to bring up topics to talk about. Guana look to be imitating […]

Knights of Sidonia S2 – 10

Unfortunately this wasn’t the time for Izana to become an ace pilot though she did at least show some ingenuity in her escape from gauna. Instead the spotlight falls once again to Tsugumi and Tanikaze. A lot of the fight scenes before the challenger appeared was to shown that Tsugumi and Tanikaze have great teamwork […]

Knights of Sidonia S2 – 9

Though the majority of the episode was of the same antics I have been complaining about in previous episodes, it’s nice to see Sidonia get back to what it does best. Dire situations and sci-fi mecha action. Izana being pushed into the role of scouting with a new weapon has to be the best path […]

Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Bladeworks – 22

A fairly uneventful episode this week.In some ways for me that’s good as it allows me to go into detail about the nature of the ever so popular CGI dolpins. But first let’s speak about what happened. Our three heroes had a strategy meeting discussing how to deal with Gilgamesh and the grail while all […]

Knights of Sidonia S2 – 8

I think something is wrong when I consider a protagonist from a movie these characters are watching a more compelling lead than our current one. I was surprised when starting the episode to see a sudden rise in visual quality only for it to turn out to be a movie within an anime. Actually I […]

Shirobako Review – 80/100

Nerawareta Gakuen Review – 84/100

Let me talk a bit about Ryousuke Nakamura. For a long time, this guy was my hero.

No TV-series […]

Okay, so I didn’t want to exit 2013 without having seen Masaaki Yuasa’s Kick Heart. It’s only twelve minutes anyway, and I consider him to be one of the best anime directors out there. The story here is pretty silly and mostly serves as a backdrop, so I mostly want to talk about the nature […]

I’m not going to dedicate a post for my impression for the final three episodes of this series. It was just too boring to write much about.
