Zettai Karen Children: The Unlimited episode 06

Excelsior! No, I’m just kidding. I may be a nerd of sorts, but I’m definitely not that bad. I’m just happy that they finally focussed on Andy’s background, because it’s been killing me for the past two or three weeks. I just needed to know what kind of guy he is.

[HorribleSubs] Zettai Karen Children THE UNLIMITED - Hyoubu Kyousuke - 06 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.45_[2013.02.12_22.15.20]We all know that Andy was a spy for an American agency. I didn’t know why. I don’t see how it would benefit him, seeing as he doesn’t strike me as the kind of person that would do things for money. In fact, I’m not entirely sure he’s getting paid for this. Maybe they just pay for his food and rent? I don’t know. He’s definitely not the type of character that would do things for money, that’s for sure.

Anyway, Andy became a lot bolder when his time was running out. He knew that Kyousuke was about to start on his grand plan to create a world for espers, people with supernatural abilities. Little did we know that he was planning to sacrifice billions of people without those supernatural abilities to achieve that.

[HorribleSubs] Zettai Karen Children THE UNLIMITED - Hyoubu Kyousuke - 06 [720p].mkv_snapshot_22.00_[2013.02.12_22.16.19]I must say that I’m a little bit disappointed. I was actually rooting for Kyousuke and his mission to create a better world for espers, people that get discriminated all over the world for having supernatural abilities. It’s definitely a jealousy thing. Still, I didn’t know he was willing to go to those lengths. It makes me think about the whole story.

I’ll end this post by saying something I thought I would never say; Andy, I’m rooting for you! I hate government goons, but I hate monstrous characters like Kyousuke a whole lot more. I don’t like the idea of mass slaughter in order to create a world for espers. It’s not like espers are the good guys to begin with. They’re still human, and the funny thing about humans is that they always need something to vent their anger on. Take normal people out of the picture and they will just find something new to fight against.

    Here’s the thing: actions ALWAYS speak louder than words. If you know a little more about Hyoubu’s history and past acts, you will see that though he has voiced his hatred and disdain for humans many times, not once has he put a genocidal plan into action. As powerful as he is, he can single-handedly kill thousands of humans at any given time. He has been able to do that for at least 60 or more years. Yet, not once has he done so. In this series, you’ve seen that even when has the chance and even the right to kill normals, he doesn’t do so, such as the anti-esper assassin and his cronies in episode 3.
    Also, if you look at the scene when he said his “kill all normals” statement. He had just before been giving the reigns of leadership of PANDRA over to the ghost Utsumi in the probable case of his death. He knew about the prediction that the ship was going to be destroyed and also knew that his body wasn’t going to last much longer. He is determined to protect his people. He’s not looking to implement some grand plan. I think that statement is simply a sign of frustration at both his own mortality and the fact that he can’t do what he wanted to do in terms of giving his people a peaceful future. Also, faced with his friend from his past, its probably brought back all those sour memories.
    I’m just saying that we’ve all said angry words we don’t necessarily mean, and until Hyobu acts on his words I’ll reserve judgement.
