Why is every damn show this season refusing to do what I expect it to do?
OP2: "Houkyou no Messiah (咆筺のメシア)" by HARUKI
“sleeping” in Doc’s robot clinic. That brings his orbit in alignment with Jun’s, because it’s at this moment that she gets the news that her grandfather is in the hospital.
Yashiro) accidentally falls on the 6-year old Jun and injures her seriously. It explains her fear of robots of course, and Doc’s somewhat fatalistic view on the world. The sad thing is I suspect Jun always believed Doc was yelling “How could you do this?!” at her after the accident, when of course he was actually yelling at Yashiro – who he viewed in anthropomorphized terms, like all his robots. Each of them blamed themselves for what happened and thought the other party blamed them too – though I do wonder why Jun’s parents never stepped in and cleared up the misunderstanding between them. Perhaps they did blame the old man (who really aged well, considering he looked just as ancient 10 years earlier) and were happier if their daughter had nothing to do with him.
bring them together anyway, once he knew the facts. While he acts as a sort of governor on Aki’s impulsiveness, channeling it in positive directions whenever he can, Kaitou tends to instinctively take the lead in crisis situations himself – though usually acting alone (this latter trait has already gotten him into trouble once). He’s only truly confided in Frau Bow so far, and she’s an unstable ally to say the least – though undeniably a useful one. His tendency to want to shield his friends from things that scare him is going to be a potential downfall as things get more and more dangerous in the second half of the series, I suspect.
Lastly, new OP and ED here as well – it’s the latter than I find much more impacting, an excellent ballad performed by Itou Kanako.
