Best summary of the show so far. And, as I mentioned last week, why I find it impossible to sympathize with our villain.
Akane almost lost it here… but the cutie hasn’t broken yet. It’s too early for that now.
Actually, I didn’t feel much tension at all from this scene. I mean, she’s threatening him with a helmet? I can see this now: Makishima was killed on the top floor of the Ministry of Welfare tower by Akane, using a helmet. Right. If she were actually going to do it she would have grabbed the knife that was lying on the ground.
Moving backwards in time, why did they go for Makishima if they knew he was the decoy? I don’t get it. Come to think of it, why did they enter at all when they are outnumbered by a factor of almost three and can’t use their guns? These cops are not the sharpest tools in the shed.
What’s going on here, I don’t even know. I guess the police chief is the Sibyl system, literally. Or something. And she overrode herself and killed what’s-his-face! Never forgive! Never forget!
So… what’s inside the Sibyl system? I would guess something organic, as commenters have been suggesting. But I have no idea aside from that. Maybe it’s an army of gerbils or something. By the way, did you know that if the sun were made of gerbils, the Earth would be incinerated?
