Darling in the FranXX Episode 12: Off the deep end

Well, I can't really complain about the character focus in this episode. I do like that the show seems to be pulling back the curtain on some of the points that I wanted to see explained.

It's interesting that the kids focus on the pleasant memories from their time in Garden. With the exception of Mitsuru, we've only really seen the playful memories, so I like the idea of showing the surprise in the kids as they see the reality of their childhood. It seems a bit counterintuitive since you'd commonly focus on the pain, so I'm also suspecting foul play.

I found it surprising that Hiro already knew about parasites never reaching adulthood. I guess it explains his suicidal behavior when he was trying to become Zero Two's partner. But seriously, is this just a casual way to confirm that Naomi was discarded? I'm not sure what to make of it because Naomi was such an insignificant character in the story.

I'm curious whether or not Zero Two came up with the idea herself that she could become human by killing enough klaxosaurs. I feel like it's the kind of thing that the adults would tell her. I think it would be kinda ironic because she generally acts mysterious and knowledgeable around the other main characters. However, the conversation at the end of the episode suggests that she may have convinced herself of this fact with little basis, which I think would be more interesting.

Okay, I wasn't expecting this.

Hmm, maybe we'll get an explanation for what happened to Hiro during his third battle in Strelizia after all.
