The Vajra launch a full scale assault on the Frontier, while the SMS tries to defend against it and save Ranka.
This episode was great. It seems like they were really focusing on the plot aspect of the show still, which is great to see because even though so far the show ahs been great, there hasnâ€™t been a lot of plot development. Mainly just some really interesting character and romance development. One thing I found particularly interesting was the theme of death and destruction they seemed to have going. At least when they showed Ranka, they had some quick flashbacks to all the deaths there have been and this dark theme really set in about how bad the situation of war is. The way that montage of death and destruction was set to a very beautiful and calm song was awesome, very eerie and it just set up a great mood.
Iâ€™m really worried about this cyborg guy taking such an interest in Ranka. Heâ€™s obviously not just some Galaxy survivor, as he seems to be able to see or at least interact in some weird dimension space where heâ€™s floating. Plus heâ€™s just too important to the plot to be just some survivor. Iâ€™m worried because heâ€™s taking such an interest in Ranka. If he ends up protecting and saving her ore, and knows more about her powers or history, he might pose a threat to Altoh as far as romance goes, and I donâ€™tâ€™ want to see that. He doesnâ€™t really seem like heâ€™s an evil guy, just following orders, but he knows whatâ€™s going on way more then most people which makes him kind of dicey.
