Saredo Tsumibito wa Ryuu to Odoru First Impressions (2): Kept in the dark

I never expected to see a line like this in an anime. I'm having a hard time watching this series. I feel like I don't know enough about this world, and the story wants to march along despite that fact. And this series seems like the kind of show that benefits from really strong world building, so I'm quite confused.

Is there a point to this romance? I get that Gaius is in some kind of stable relationship, but these scenes feel like such a waste of time. They would make a lot more sense if Jiv is actually going to betray Gaius later or something. There's a really weird scene in the battle at the end of the episode where the focus suddenly shifts to showing Jiv, so I get the sense that I'm supposed to be suspicious of her.

This scene really felt like the show's way of insisting that it's a sci-fi show rather than a fantasy show. You're not fooling anyone.

Okay, I get the "brain vs. brawn" dichotomy of Gaius and Gigina already. What the heck is a chemical manipulation type?

This is not the conversation I expected to see...

I was actually okay with this scene. In an earlier scene Gaius mentions that he happened to train under a "great master", so the combination of that conversation with this one is probably supposed to introduce the main characters a bit. It sounds like the two trained under this Diorg person, and that person's job was passed on to them. I'm guessing it was the result of some kind of tragedy? They don't seem too sad about it.

Given that the only thing we've seen in this series so far is the fight against the black dragon, this girl's accusations seem pretty clear. So, the confusion of the main characters seems like unnecessary mystery that doesn't add anything.
