Zettai Karen Children: The Unlimited episode 08

And so the chaotic memories continue. I must say that this episode explained a lot as to why Kyousuke turned out to be a maniac that wants to kill all the “normals” and create a world for espers. It’s still doesn’t change the fact that it’s his own fault, but I’ll get to that.

[HorribleSubs] Zettai Karen Children THE UNLIMITED - Hyoubu Kyousuke - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_13.48_[2013.02.26_21.42.13]The episode started out surprisingly strange when Kyousuke’s stepsister approached him in the baths wearing nothing but a towel. I didn’t see the point. She’s an esper, I’m sure she could’ve done that differently, even if they are brother and sister by law (not by blood, I think). It was definitely an interesting start, I’ll give them that much.

This story focussed on the ‘test’ between espers and normal soldiers. Kyousuke was assigned to fight against a skilled pilot in a very modern airplane during those days. Kyousuke was still weak in those days, even though he was stronger than most espers. He had a difficult time at first, but he soon, as one could already predict, got a power-up and managed to win the match on behalf of the esper unit.

Those were just a shoe-in for the information that people actually wanted to know, I know I did. Why did he get shot? How? Where? That all got answered during this episode. It explains why Kyousuke gave up on “normal” people, and the strangest thing is that I can’t really blame him. I can actually relate to him wanting to mass-murder those judgemental pests.

I’m pretty sure that this will whom is whom thing will go back and forth for a little while. I’m only rooting for Yuugiri right now. She is absolutely adorable. Andy doesn’t deserve it, seeing as he’s a backstabbing lapdog of some government organisation. Kyousuke doesn’t really deserve it either, because he just wants to mass murder everyone without abilities, and not everyone deserves that, although most of them probably do.
