Warsaw, huh? The Joy Division? It just really wouldn’t be an anime that plays with heavy themes without at least one all-too-obvious allusion to World War II. Of course,, the evil empire continues to be as loosely defined as it was at the start of the show, so I don’t know how appropriate comparing it to the Nazis actually is. I suppose I could always just assume that the incriminating behavior has simply just happened during all the signature “off-screen plot.”
Speaking of important stuff that’s been largely left unseen and unsaid, it was honestly pretty funny to find out the terrible secret of Anemone’s special strawberry jam. It was pretty obvious that the stuff had some narcotic qualities but, if I’m reading this right, it’s also actually synthesized from the remains of her failed fellow test subjects?
Otherwise, I’ll pat myself on the back for figuring out pretty early on that the little miss was the bad guys’ attempt to pervert the process that created Eureka. “Pervert” has proven to really be the right word, because the mad doctor at this facility honestly seemed like he was getting a chubby over his experiments.
Regarding healthier behavior, we’re seeing Eureka and Renton’s relationship take on some more qualities you’d expect from a real relationship. That is, they’re having fights a lot more often, now. (Then again, maybe it isn’t actually that realistic considering how they haven’t gotten physical outside of some nigh-platonic hugs.)
Yes, I’ll keep harping on that fact, because it gets ridiculous to have 40+ episodes of “Will they/won’t they” romantic tension like this. Even if these two kids were the most clueless ones in this universe, you'd figure one of the villains would force them into action, by now.
