Big Order Episode 3: ...What? Huh?

Oh hey...I remember this from the first episode.

I wonder who will get the focus in this week's episode. she pregnant? That would certainly explain why Eiji's power aimed low last week...maybe the power was aiming for the baby. Still, the great destruction event happen ten years prior to the series starting, so either that would have to mean the baby's born or the power was given after the incident.

Surely there's a time limit for this, right? It's not like Fran can keep her frozen forever. Also, does he have to stay near her? If so, he's pointless to the plot. If not, his power is a bit ridiculous...

...why exactly is that the case? Because the Order in charge is a powerful asset? Because the area holds a lot of influence in the world? Because it's the most difficult to dominate?

Remember that thing Daisy said about lowering the range of your ability? That would be why.

I'm gonna go with "if the king doesn't lead, how can he expect his subordinates to follow?" or whatever the quote is.

I noticed this!

Hopefully this is a strategy. If it were me, I would think that pretending like you're being forced to help Eiji against your will would make it harder for people to attack you.

Kill the hostages to make them prove they're not actually being controlled by Eiji? That actually works...

I mean...I get what he's trying to do here by convincing the prime minister that he's the one in control, but doesn't this fall apart when someone sees one of these people alive? Also, I feel a bit insulted that the series tries so hard to explain it to us.

I get that Rin is here because she's the only one Eiji can actually kill, but I have a more important question. Eiji ordered her never to leave his domain and she was just locked up in a cell in a different part of the building. Wasn't she out of his domain at that point? Why would she use a close-range weapon and willingly walk back into his domain where his order to never harm him or his sister takes hold? Or is it more like Eiji's domain follows Rin wherever she is?

I hate these flashes of chess pieces. They're basically shoving it in our faces of "oh ho ho! look at this amazing strategy!". Seriously, why can't people be more subtle?

Well, this is helpful. Still, it does beg a question. Iyo activates her power when she shows up in front of Eiji, meaning she didn't know she would get them out safely before she reached them. That sounds like a stupid thing to do especially since she could have carried the piece of paper she uses to read the warnings at any time.

Maybe if you were more successful, he might actually care.

Uhh...what? So much for my earlier theory...

Also, this conversation makes no sense. At the end of it, it sounded like Eiji promises not to touch the ribbon, but the way Iyo explains herself makes it sound like she'll lose her powers if Eiji touches any part of her.

Bobble Rin!

Well, this doesn't make sense. Eiji's allowed to dominate bullets and guns without dominating the wielder, so why would this be any different? Does the Order actually create the Rock God out of nothing or is it just a bunch of rocks held together by the Order? If it's the former, then that wish is very specific...

The chosen one! Seriously, what is going on?

facepalm Really? That was pretty anticlimactic.

...what? I'm so confused right now. Also, she's useless now, right? She just has no powers?

Huh? Wha? I- wha?

...I'm so confused.

Some of you are going to tell me "but Marth, don't be silly! Obviously, her ribbon symbolizes bunny ears and rabbits are the symbol of fertility, so clearly that would explain everything you just watched in the second half of the episode." I'm very aware of all of this and I still have no idea what I just watched.
