Genei wo Kakeru Taiyou Episode 8: And so it begins...


Oh so they're linked, huh? Kind of odd that this happens now and no annihilation occurred before. I'm guessing that's because not all cards are assigned and not many Daemonia have been killed...but still kind of odd. Oh well, interesting that Ginka so easily chose to allow herself to disappear. Is it because her conversation caused her to realize that her death was necessary somehow?

So a main character has died and Luna's story was still never visited. The next episode is supposed to be about the Moon, but how will it go with everything that has happened? It may be enough for her to turn...

    If only the Daemonia Tarot prime (parent) cards can annihilate a magical girl, and not the infected copies, it makes sense that this hasn't occurred before. The bad guys had no reason to send out their prime cards into battle, ever.

    With her sacrifice, Ginka permanently destroyed 1/22 of the daemonia in existence, whereas all the work magical girls did before had amounted to nothing. Theoretically, the world may attain complete peace from the daemonia at the cost of just 22 lives - a good deal considering that both innocents and magical girls are dying all the time from daemonia infections and fights.

    But the good guys had better realize that there is intelligence on the opponent's side, and not just mindless beasts, and quickly. They're completely screwed otherwise, as the bad guys have complete control of the initiative right now, and the good guys are just playing into their hands.

    Overall, I feel like this is the first time the series introduced a strong moral dilemma. But the resolution still feels clunky and I wasn't much moved by the character despite liking Ginka as a character.

    Personally, I would consider that sacrifice a good deal too. But alas...Ginka's probably one of the few to see reason like that.

    Well, the idea that they were killing actual human beings when they destroyed the Daemonia was also a moral dilemma...I'd argue that it was a bit clunky how they "resolved" that too.

    I'm more leaning to the idea that there is an underlying plan and a reason for starting now to annihilate cards...
