Big Order Episode 2: Minions, assemble!


Okay, so the main character has the ability to control others and wants to create a world of peace for his disabled sister (who we saw in a wheelchair near the end of the first episode)...I know what you guys are trying to do and I'm not falling for it!

Well, this could be a lot worse. He only ordered Rin to never leave his domain and never injure him or his sister. He could have forced her to follow all of his orders and made her even more like Yuno.

Never mind, I spoke too soon...

Also, I'm not going to poke at the fact that Rin still wants to kill Eiji. Given that Eiji only ordered Rin to "never harm him", she can still cause his death indirectly. For example, if she were to push Eiji in front of a moving train, that wouldn't be harming him, but it would cause his death. You know...not to put words in this author's book >.>

Ugh...this song hurts...

wink wink

I like time manipulation as an ability as much as the next guy, but who gets this specific about how he wants to protect someone?

Sure, this seems like a perfect time to inject some comedy.

Do we really need to be reminded that the ability is called "Rebirth Fire" every time? Also, it's lucky Eiji's domain expands infinitely upwards and downwards...if it were a sphere, Rin probably would have dropped out of his range by now. It does beg the question, though. What happens if something blows Rin backward? Would she hit a wall at the edge of Eiji's range?

Why isn't she forcing him to walk out in front? Also, these scenes make it hard for me to tell. Is she just really clumsy or is Eiji's power really saving him in all of these situations?

Well, they're not blood relatives. Uhh...no comment...

Well, that explains all of the grim imagery surrounding Sena in the opening animation. I think there was even a scene that shows her clutching her heart, which glows bright red.

Based on the wording of the line, it sounds like the first "Binding Dominator" is said in Japanese and the second "Bind Dominator" is said in English (the denote the actual name of the power). That being said, this line still looks ridiculous.

Quick! Take cover behind these metal railings! They'll surely block all of the bullets!

Given that Eiji's explaining his plan so confidently, it's definitely going to fail. Heck, if I were Fran, I would just sidestep the grenades knowing that Eiji wouldn't let his sister explode.

Another thing...isn't Sena clearly time-stopped in the background? That means that Fran can only stop two of the grenades. Meaning if the plan works, one of the grenades still goes off and kills Sena.

Uhh...no. Fran should just stop running here. If he gets too close to the grenades, then Eiji can just move close enough to dominate both Fran and the grenades. So it's better to wait until Eiji walks into range of the grenades and see whether he dominates the grenades. And if Eiji dominates Fran, can't he just force Fran to stop the grenades himself? I have no idea why this is being called a game of chicken.

Does Eiji's domination count as an "aggressive action"? His range was enough to get Rin from across the tower at the end of the first episode, so why can't he just expand his domain to get everyone in this room?

"We pretended to try to kill you, but we were just testing you" cliche.

Another thing I've been wondering up to now. If Rin is immortal and can apparently heal other things than herself, why can't she restore Sena? You're going to say "maybe she can only bring back things that are dead", but then I'm going to say "you could just kill Sena and bring her back healthy". Then you're going to say "well, Sena's condition was there from birth, so she'll be brought back with the same disease", but I'm going to say "so what? She can be revived perpetually."

Join us, and together we can rule the world! (but he's totally not evil)

Is there a special meaning to where these people get stabbed? Most people get stabbed in the chest, but one guy gets stabbed in the head and Iyo randomly gets stabbed...somewhere else. Iyo is female, right? Is this supposed to suggest something?

Ugh...this ending song isn't great either.

Anyway, time to take over the world, right?
