So Faye and I have something in common? Go figure. They never came out and say that she's from Singapore but, seeing as how I don't know of too any other island nations with merlions, I'll have to conclude as such. Although, I should stress that the merlion isn’t actually positioned as it's depicted in the show. Then again, this is the future, so I suppose anything can change. I haven’t lived in the “lion city” for year and years, but I remember hearing that they were starting some animation studios there. I believe CLONE WARS was one of the first productions, but I'm sure there have to be more. Sheesh... I haven't actually heard of too much animation coming out of other nations aside from Japan, either. There was that one Korean-produced one I saw a trailer for, but I can't think of any others. Can you lunatics educate me?
Edward’s Dad is just as batty as she is - - I love it. He's a different kind of nutty though. This is definitely a case where you can how the apple hasn’t fallen far from the tree, even if it isn’t exactly the same kind of apple. When somebody spoiled to me that she’d eventually part ways with the Bebop crew, I was frustrated at the prospect - - she's my favorite character - - but they send her off in a way that's actually pretty fitting here. She just leaves a chalk goodbye message and capriciously acquiesces to Ein’s request to tag along, with absolutely no hard feelings between her and her pop.
I’d love to see a show entirely about her. She’s almost like a benign Joker, floating along with chaos without any agenda aside from her latest whim. She enters the Bebop's crew's lives just as randomly as she exits. Happy trails.
Seems like this going to be the last fun romp before the final two-parter, which I fear will be all about Vicious instead of any of the fun stuff I’ve been enjoying in the past few episodes. It's too bad - - I really feel like this show’s really hit its stride in this final stretch of infinitely-fun scenarios.
