Heito is downright crazy! That fight with Akashi was nuts! He showed off his murderous tendencies. Grieving in his own way was definitely the wrong way to go about it. Making fun of Emiru’s compassion that she held for Akashi just showed how jealous Heito was. Such contrast to how Akashi feels about losing his own brother. This episode was a lot different than the previous one in enhancing its main characters.
The animation was much better here too. I like the imagery when Heito used the chain off the playground set to attack Akashi. Just shows how pinned down Heito needs to be to be a bit more normal to the rest of society. Not only that but here we finally have him awakening and attacking an unarmed Akashi! Such hatred for a guilt ridden murderer losing his other half [Emiru] yet the LIM was saving Akashi. Strange.
It’s nice to see how the LIM systems react to the emotions of their pilots, and I cannot help but wonder if the show has a hidden plot device for that very reason. Somehow the remnant emotions of the dead are encapsulated in the machines and that’s how they awaken. That’s my idea anyway. It would make sense. Rather unusual to see Sable react when it was Akashi that was being attack by Heito.
OVERALL IMPRESSION: 7/10
