Remember, Haru…there is no spoon. You’ve had the ability to fly this whole time…you just need to believe. Sound about right? Well, I suppose it would have been depressing if it had taken too long for Haru to figure out this incarnation business…still, the training itself isn’t anything surprising. Why else would they have such a ridiculously tall tower? As for Sky Raker herself, I’m not sure if I see her returning as a permanent member of the cast…maybe she just shows up in the final battle to lend a hand…you know.
I will say this, though. This episode does point out something interesting about games. As we move closer and closer to creating games that can emulate reality, it’s very possible to lose sight of the fact that it’s all a program. Haru instinctively thought of the Accelerated World as having the same limitations as reality, but actually, the “reality” it shows is only an interface created for the user. So when the robot overmind takes over in the future, try to break the wall…okay?
Well, hopefully we see the results of this week’s training next week. The preview shows Haru, Taku, and Chiyu in a battle against Noumi for some reason. It also shows Kuroyukihime sending Haru something from her trip, but let’s not go into that.
