Seriously, Freedom is everything a shounen anime should be. Anime often seem to forget that every single fourteen year-old boy is an idiot, no matter what. Sure, they make their main male leads do something stupid once in a while, but that almost never goes further than an underdeveloped quirk. Freedom, however, is different, and it actually manages to portray the main characters as the idiots they are, and that’s where it starts playing with it.
In this episode, Takeru and Biz as expected get to know the people of Ao’s village and their customs. In the meantime, a typhoon passes by and Takeru confesses how he loves Ao and just travelled to earth to meet her. Biz was also really cute when he tried to impress a local radio-host.
I’m wondering how this series is planning to end. Will Takeru, Biz and Ao go back to the moon, or did the creators have something more epic in mind? And what’s this “Freedom” people keep speaking of.
