Zettai Karen Children: The Unlimited episode 07

What the hell? Suddenly a lot of the shows are running flashback episodes. I think one is fine, but it’s just not fun anymore when they’re all doing it at the same time. This one may not have been as bad, but it could’ve been a whole lot better if you ask me.

It was a rather strange episode with Kyousuke as a child. I admit that I always wanted to know a bit more about him, but this is just bad timing. It was about to get really good, so why stop that awesome flow? Were we not allowed to watch as Kyousuke kicks Andy’s ass? That is the only reason why I’m so disappointed. The episode in itself was pretty good, but it the timing was completely off here.

I suppose it’s hard to live in a world where ‘special’ people are seen as monsters, especially when you yourself are very ‘special’. So yeah, I can imagine that being an issue. It’s kind of like being black in the thirties of forties (seriously no offense).

I have seen a lot of anime so far, and there’s one thing that I’ve learnt from watching all of that; never trust a faceless organisation or the government. They will screw you over on more than one occasion, use you till you are useless and throw you away as though you were trash. Those guys are users, nothing more. Or as hippies always say; “never trust suits, man.”

    I was talking with some others, and I think the reason why they position the flashback episodes at this point is because not only are many things from the past showing up, the ghost Utsumi from the notebook, and the I-go brain powering the ship, but I also think that Hyoubu is telling his story to Andy, as Andy has wanted to know the whole truth about why Hyoubu has done what he has done. He even starts off the episode with his present-day voice narrating.
    I could be wrong but it would make sense.
