This episode features a mech suit that’s more-or-less designed to spin giant pizza pies. I will no longer question if the creators of this show are in on the joke. If I brought it up before, I apologize for the repetition, but this show is nevertheless reminding me of the original SCARFACE - - a thriller that ridicules itself in the same breath that it relishes what it does without apology. If the pizza flipping doesn’t make you agree, than those shenanigans in that one storage shed surely must have. So many complex angles of secrets and understanding, all solved by some party gas and a few toppled slates. Or how about Kallen going straight from high stakes matters of rebellion to scrub work as a spook house monster? Somehow, I don’t think they were going for pathos and irony by having her sweat underneath all that foam while watching a hi-tech radar monitor of the house's floor plan.
Euphemia seems to be getting established pretty soundly as the holy fool in this show. Her declaring Tokyo to be independent is tantamount to your 13-year-old cousin grabbing the mic at your sister’s wedding to “roast” everybody at the bridal table, isn’t it? I also love how that whole dramatic profession of love from last episode has so few repercussions in this episode that it may as well have never happened. Generally, when you have two teenagers with functioning hormonal glands professing their mutual love and adoration that eloquently, it at least leads to them going steady. I suppose the “rules of attraction” are as topsy-turvy in Sector 11 as the rules of physics are.
To get a little more logical, why is it so shocking to people that Zero’s agenda was for independence. Isn’t that the aim of every rebellion? Or was everybody just thinking his plan was to keep pulling pranks for the foreseeable future?
