Sidonia no Kishi 2 episode 04
My, my… Quite the eventful episode this turned out to be. Well, that’s what happens when you are at war with an alien race that’s trying to exterminate whatever’s left of the human race. You get a lot of death and destruction.
So Sidonia mounted a full-scale attack on the Gauna in order to push them back for once. No more defending or running. No more other either, seeing as their beloved council was killed last week, which is something I don’t really mind, seeing as those people were selfish monsters themselves, but I don’t like that captain being in charge. She’s power hungry and she doesn’t strike me as the sort of person that has her people’s best interest at heart. Only her own. It is only a matter of time before that becomes even remotely clear to us. I have no idea what she’s planning to do.
Anyway, our new hybrid friend got captured by the Gauna and ended up killing them in the process. Sure, she ended up getting hurt and refused her orders to retreat so that she could try and save her “friends”, but what about now? She got hurt even more when she was forced to deflect that other Gauna’s super beam.
Now, don’t get me wrong here; I’ve seen plenty of anime by now to know that she’s going to survive. That character has become pretty important to the story, so I’m quite sure that at least some part of her will survive if not the whole thing, after which she will be seen as a hero and people will no longer look at her as monster and approve the creation of other hybrids. Isn’t that the usual pattern?
