Just got back from about 24 hours worth of travel, so bear with me if my brain isn’t all there yet. Anyway, Saki finds out about Tomiko’s true age being ridiculous…interesting that she’s grooming Saki to be a successor when she can effectively sustain herself forever. I wonder if she always does this, only to be proven wrong when she ends up outliving them. Anyway, I still don’t see what this is all going towards…I also thought the whole speech with Cantus users being effectively limitless weapons was kinda boring (maybe because it seemed obvious to me?).
Next week is more stuff with the bakenezumi. Interesting line in the preview about replacing humans…I wonder if it’s another one of those cyclic themes you see a lot in these sorts of things. What I’m saying is that the bakenezumi are a regression of humanity in an attempt to start over, but would eventually go down the same path anyway. Probably not what it is, but a fun idea to think about. Do Saki and Satoru have enough time to be getting sidetracked?
