I must say that this series is getting more interesting with every episode. The first episode was a huge disappointment for me because it didn’t really show the thought-pattern behind Nijuu Mensou’s plans, though thankfully the past two episodes have put a much bigger emphasis on planning and back-ups, in case something goes wrong. With this episode, I finally see that Nijuu Mensou isn’t inhumanly strong or smart. He’s just paranoid and a perfectionist.
I can indeed see why Chico will end up as Nijuu Mensou’s successor. Due to the way she’s raised, she’s ended up rather paranoid as well and doesn’t take anything for granted, and yet she’s willing to work hard for the person who saved her. This episode mainly meant to bring her a bit closer to Nijuu Mensou’s crew, and flesh out the different characters a bit.
What I’m waiting for right now is to see the always-composed Nijuu Mensou screw up. Obviously, this has to happen sometime, and I’m rather eager to see Chico, as she takes over his position. It’ll be interesting to see Chico evolve, and meet the other two girls we see in the ED. Like I said before, I like series that don’t play all of their trumps in the first episode.
