Apparently this episode aired last week, but somehow I completely missed it. I’m not entirely sure what episode number this should be either, but two weeks ago was seventeen so… I’m so confused.
Anyway, I didn’t miss much, with this as the high point of the episode.
Good grief. All the world’s problems can be solved by crying and saying that everyone should get along. And now Fam is a hero.
Thank goodness this didn’t actually work out. Although I wish Fam had died to save the world instead. Then Dian could despair, gather the Exile and destroy the world.
The Old Guy
I have to say, I’ve come to genuinely like this guy. Old people in anime tend to either be impotent or master sages disconnected from the trivialities of the world. But he’s still actually in the army along with everyone else, and still going strong. He’s just a bit wiser and calmer than his peers.
The way he was about to tell Fam about her parents before she stepped on his foot was a bit questionable, but whatever. At the moment, out of all the characters, he’s one of only two characters who I really care and want to end up happy. I never thought I’d say that a couple episodes ago.
The other character I care about, unsurprisingly, is Millia. And I have to say, these revolutionaries are bloody idiots. Why are they asking her to kill her sister? Kill her yourselves you bastards. She’s a little girl. You’re in the army. Besides, do you really think a queen with blood on her hands is going to go over well with her people? You need to set up someone else to be the fall guy. Which, I suppose, is how things ended up turning out.
Of course, I’m not particularly sad to see Millia’s sister go. She apparently has some reason she did everything, connected with her knowledge from the Exile, but she sure didn’t treat her sister well.
Poor Millia. She needs Teddy to cheer her up. WHERE ARE YOU TEDDY?!!
I mean, seeing Fam sure won’t cheer anyone up. I guess Giselle can cancel her out.
One final thought: the scenery porn continues to be spectacular.
