Darling in the FranXX Episode 20: Basically aliens


I'm really not sure what to make of this episode. The twist was pretty drastic and didn't feel like it had been set up that much. I'm on board with the reversal of good and bad when the klaxosaurs and APE are finally explained, but the sudden introduction of space invaders felt like a stretch. In the end, this episode felt like a mix of explanations that made half sense to me.

Wow, Kokoro's really pregnant? I would have thought APE would have a problem with that if they were opposed to the wedding. I find it hard to believe that they wouldn't have checked for that. After all, what do you expect horny teens to do at night?

You sound a little jealous, man.

All of this talk about "our child" really made me think that Hiro was the child, not the Star Entity.

I was fine with the reveal about Franxx being repurposed klaxosaurs. The idea isn't super surprising. It just feels a little hollow given the context.

So...Anti-Spirals, anyone?

I don't really mind the idea of aliens manipulating humans towards sabotaging themselves. It was already suggested that humans screwed themselves when they started mining magma energy, so it's not really going too far.
