Ranka is asked to participate in a movie and Altoh and Sheryl both are on the scene.
Wow, this episode blew me away. I continue to be amazed at this show on so many levels. It develops both the action plot involving the Vajra and this weird android guy while at the same time developing the romantic and character parts of it. They do both of them at almost the same time while not leaving one of them feel boring. Iâ€™m drawn into both of them and care deeply for both. Itâ€™s simply amazing. This episode did exactly that, it developed both of them and while it may not have made any huge steps forward they did it in such a way that it wasnâ€™t boring at all and kept my interest.
Iâ€™m still the most concerned about the romantic part of this show. Not rally concerned I guess, as I know the series will have a great romance focus to it, but Iâ€™m more interested in that then the plot involving the Vajra. I keep feeling so sorry for Ranka. She tries so hard yet Altoh is always with Sheryl, she seems them kiss, she seems to be on the loosing end always, almost enough to make me loose hope for her ending up with him, which is what I really want. One of my main concerns now is that Ranka will fall for that android guy or something will happen between the two of them. If she keeps being on the loosing end of the battle for Altoh, it may happen. He seems interested in her; he saved her from the Hydra even when it seemed he wasnâ€™t supposed to. Plus since he was taking orders itâ€™s likely heâ€™s not pure evil or anything.
What caught my attention the most in this episode though was this gigantic metaphor that the movie was. Ranka and Sheryl and Altoh all being the characters. Ranka falling in love with Altoh despite knowing Sherylâ€™s feelings. Even though Sheryl said the kiss meant nothing it seemed enough to spark Ranka understanding the characters. Hell, Rankaâ€™s brother even seemed to wonder if it was fate that she was playing this character, seeming to understand its real life significance. My question is how exactly the movie ends and what it means for everything else.
