    The stuff you pick up on, my God. This is what I love this blog so much for, the depth you guys cover in the richer anime’s covers things I don’t even think about. That last part blew my mind Tenderfoot. Good eye. Good eye.

    • I agree :). Excellent blog and I felt like something was off this episode too and now that I read your summary I knew what it was and that it was the “intro” type feeling I got from the montage.

      Well, thank you! I think what’s fun about this show is that there are so many little details that everyone picks up on something different, so when you read or talk about it with other people you can always be surprised by things you didn’t even notice. It still happens to me all the time, and I spend (too much) time thinking about this show as it is.

    I didn’t really feel the music during the montage was appropriate either – considering the context behind it, a suitable OST accompanied with Maria’s letter would have fitted it just fine.

    I’m looking forward to learn what kind of status Saki and Satoru now hold in society as full-fledged adults (past the disposal age of 17) as well as how far Saki’s been groomed by Tomiko towards her future role as the Ethics Committee head. Unfortunately, anything where both Squealer AND Kiroumaru turn up is ominous in itself. God, Squealer makes my skin crawl.

      I was going through the preview really slowly, and I think either Saki or Satoru (probably Satoru) is going to be working for something called the “Department of Exospecies Control” which will probably be the people who deal with the Queerats in some way. If that’s really what’s going on, there’s a lot of potential for interesting thing to happen. Judging from how Squealer and Kiroumaru were dressed, I’d be willing to bet that their society has evolved to almost match that of the humans…*shudder* they’re definitely going to be a threat at some point.
