This was the most depressing episode I’ve seen of this show so far! Emiru was just starting to get great buildup to becoming a strong character only to have her killed?! This series continues on strengthening its twists and turns! This was a fairly straightforward episode as we were finally able to see how each pilot was struggling to accept what was happening to Emiru. Grieving in their own ways. If only the animation was better in this show. The background designs weren’t the greatest in this episode and it didn’t mix well with the great character designs. Did Satelite studios run out of budget for this show? There were some moments in this episode that animation was pretty bad. I can tell now how emo this series is. At least there was some strong character changing events to enhance the episode as a whole here. Especially Heito. I thought this guy was crazy enough, but now he is overly worried which I hope he doesn’t turn into a side character in this show. Left behind on the sidelines so to speak. His struggle in losing his terror, Emiru was tough to watch because of how compelling Emiru had been in the previous episodes. Not as good as the last episode, but we were finally given some insight as to how the characters will continue to act for now.
OVERALL IMPRESSION: 6/10
