“Nah, sorry, my memory doesn’t go back to 2011…”
This week: underwater visuals in Tsuritama, the intelligence of the Bentenmaru crew in Mouretsu Pirates, a pattern of storytelling that Space Brothers has been relying on, and thoughts on the finale to The Future Diary.
The patchwork military commonly referred to as the Allied Forces has a common goal among its diverse membership: to end Luscinia’s relentless onslaught and bring peace to the world. That aim has been quite clear since the alliance began only a few episodes ago. But what they share in a common objective, they all do not share the same vision on how to accomplish it. The lack of faith and familiarity between factions, most visible between the surviving Glacies soldiers and the insensitive traitors of Ades, prevents the cohesion of a formidable and singular military that can match the Luscinia’s forces and achieve their goal. The reason for the lack of companionship and trust between each side is that there is no unifying leader for this army. Each faction (Ades, Glacies, Turan, and the sky pirates) follows their own and is a reason why this military will never be successful in its current state (or at least current state as of this episode).
Well, this is a bit overdue but better late than never. As like the previous seasons, after hitting the midseason point, the order of the anime in this post have been flipped meaning it starts with Rinne no Lagrange and ends with Another. Though it isn’t much, it does change the perspective by putting the anime in a different order, at least for me if not anyone else.
This week: looking for a better word than ‘pirate’ for Mouretsu Pirates, something else you can do with your diary in Future Diary, and a growing problem with the cast of BRAVE10.
Ah, the pirates have returned to continue their piracy. Now’s about the best chance for me to ask a question that I’ve kept reserved since the first episode: how exactly does piracy work in this world?
