Behold, the statue of endless knowledge and superpowers to destroy the entire world!!!(And nice clothes you’re wearing)
This episode is pretty serious and there are hardly any funny moments in the show (Save for the cute Toppi moments throughout, he doesn’t play an important role in this episode here. Poor guy). We showcase a less violent and quiet Morte around here and Kirie gets a little smarter this time.
Warning: Multiple references of previous episodes of World Destruction and spoilers ahead. I suggest that you come back after you have finished watching this week’s episode. Those who are first-timers watching World Destruction and have not started watching the entire series so far yet, stay away.
I always start watching the RAWs episode in any video sharing websites and luckily I can across a World Destruction commercial that stares Naja’s (Game) voice actor, Hiro Mizushima. (Daisuke Ono only plays Naja in the anime ONLY, and not the game itself.) It was pretty funny though, if you have been reading all the posts you won’t see water in the show nor the game. Sand plays a part in both water and fire itself.
No water…only sand…sand…more sand…where’s water?
As you can see, Mizu means water in Japanese, and his name apparently had the kanji on it all along. Poor guy, no water in the World Destruction universe…then what does humans and beastmen drink? Sand? (And yes they do drink sand. But so far there are no pictures deciphering humans or beastmen drinking sand like water.) Probably I’ll go back in episode 3, where there’s a jailer drinking something like water…Probably I’ll show it on my next post.
Kirie: Homesick, maybe. Or she has…the cooties…
Toppi: Ohh. Let’s enjoy my sweet potatoes in the succession of the rise of bear.. I mean, manhood.
So our destroyers visit Garuwa, or Autumnland perhaps where any people, whether they are humans or beastmen are welcome to the city to pursue knowledge and get anything they want from it here, in terms of academics and stuff like that. People are mostly friendly here, I supposed so. Poor Morte doesn’t feel comfortable that humans and beastmen can co-exist together? What’s her problem anyway, I don’t give a damn that she’s being a little racist here, you know. I mean, she’s with Toppi and Kirie the entire time since the 1st episode, so why think about it now? And she too can communicate with Toppi well. You don’t want to hurt my Toppi, do you? But Morte doesn’t seem to be in a tsundere mood at this point of time…
Obviously she didn’t sleep well last night…look at all her wrinkles and eyebags! It looks terribly awful!
She went touchy at the thought of humans and beastmen co-exist together…reminds me of Nina from Code Geass that everyone hates (And there’s going to be a bit of a look-a-like in this episode too, a girl, mostly her hairstyle and glasses looks a lot like here. Can start throwing tomatoes and sweet potatoes at her when I get the picture ready after reading this entire post.) But Morte’s hate for beastmen is less contagious than our hateful-Nina with her hate of the Numbers in Code Geass.
Toppi: Mmm…sweet potatoes. Can I have one please?
Kirie: (turns to Toppi) Sure. I don’t mind you having the entire pack by yourself.
Toppi: I’m enjoying my sweet potato here. I’m in heaven, kuma~
The music’s pretty light for this episode, which is perfect for this time as you know that the series is going to end soon (Or not.) and makes you feel less stressed after a hellish day at work or in school. So our dear Morte here decides to take a long stroll at the city and came across a beastmen that his hairstyle looks very alike from her younger brother. Hmm…
It’s auspicious to look at as corpse. But sadly the Ghost month is over, so he won’t be haunting you until the next year comes.
Out of curiosity, she went into the library/store and made a huge discovery that the man was not her brother. Poor Morte.
She’s not your little brother. So sorry. I know that you miss him very much. Just treat our little guy here as your little brother then. Has the same haircut as his.
She was a big liar telling that beastmen that she was just looking at the shop out of interest. I’m afraid Kirie Holmes will see your tricks out later. Speaking of Kirie, where on Earth is he? Meanwhile Toppi’s enjoying his bag of sweet potatoes (And then falls asleep after eating them.) You’ll get fat someday where you’re stuck in a life-and-death situation where you are caught by the World Salvation Committee members and die as an unhappy and ugly bear. No kids or fans that adore you will visit your grave. But don’t worry, because when you die I’ll still tend your grave and let no one touch you ever again, until my time comes.
He’s all bones and full of cowardice who doesn’t know how to protect himself. Wait till you see his true colors. (Kirie screams like a girl)
Yum…sweet potatoes…my favorite. (Looking at it makes my mouth water. I really hate dinner, less dishes and a day that suck.)
He’s munching on them…
Still munching on them…
And our little guy falls asleep. Talk about cute. Aww…he’s so FAT!
Morte made another digging discovery that the library is shutting down because no one ever comes here anymore, his father died of the war and his foster human sister who looks somehow like our love-to-hate Nina left the house. She couldn’t stand the reality of this city where humans and beastmen can co-exist peacefully without wars and suspicion of one another. Speaking of similarities between our Morte and that Nina-lookalike. Both have younger brothers and both ladies in their seperate cases doesn’t feel comfortable with humans and beastmen living peacefully together.
Does this girl in the picture look a lot like Nina? There’s another one which is more precise, I swear. Later.
Claiming she has lots of free time to spend (While stopping in her aim of world destruction, like a ceasefire.), she helps out that guy at the library. Kirie, on the other hand, has his own problems to face and decides he should visit the historic archive library that is just ahead. Since the place is (almost) deserted, he can spend the entire time reading all the books he want and came across one that talks about the Destruct Code. It was the type of book he wants to find and borrows it in the end.
Hell yeah, it’s so true. But wait…a place where I can hang out?
Don’t you dare shit on my Toppi’s head. SHOO!
The scholar that knows everything in the whole wide world. Right.
Kirie starts flipping into his book and got very different views of each book that describes the Destruct Code. He was this time smart enough that no one or anybody sees what the Destruct Code looks like and how it works, but he was determined to find out how Morte get the Destruct Code from. That’s the reason why he borrowed the book as long as he likes. After borrowing it, he finds Morte carrying books and find her location. Finding her wasn’t easier said than done, people. And he was invited to the library by the Morte’s younger brother lookalike. Way to go, Morte. You didn’t even tell us his what’s his or your brother’s name. Perhaps Sega didn’t know or are lazy to name him, so he was just addressed as Morte’s younger brother. How rude.
We revisited the memories in Episode 2 right after Toppi’s sand ship was attack by pirates and Kirie was holding onto the Destruct Code as he fell unconscious at Agan’s useless cargo ship and dream of Morte crying to her younger brother at his grave. Morte looks less badass in that particular scene and we come back to the interrogating of Morte Asherah by Kirie Irunisu Holmes. I’m trying to sound serious here, no jokes between this interrogation period, period:
Truth No. 1. You cannot deny the fact that there are no records of people witnessing the Destruct Code.
Truth No. 2. You cannot deny the fact that there are no records of authors writing the Destruct Code that you’re possessing in your pocket.
Truth No. 3. You cannot deny the fact that there are no clues on operating on the Destruct Code. (Probably Kirie is the only person who can do it, if he knows that he possess the power to destroy the world and finds a way to activate it.)
It seems that there are some people who are getting tired of all those interrogations that Kirie Holems are conducting. On the contrary, if anyone have been wondering where in the Garuwa Toppi is, he’s still sleeping, but it seems that he’s conscious again. Now he wonders where everybody goes and it’s already night time. Slow bear.
I don’t want to get out of here. It’s so comfortable in here. Let me sleep some more, please?
Kirie again revisits all the good (And bad) memories they have gone through together from the first episode to this week’s. Too bad Morte denies it that she didn’t do that to make friends but to DESTROY THE WORLD. She’s too stubborn, anyone giving her an aspirin? She looks like she could blow up any minute now. And if there’s any thing she enjoys during the trip to destroy the world, that would be kicking Toppi and Kirie’s butt like a slave driver and end up throwing her away in the end of the series. Just kidding here. I wonder if there’s any drastic differences when the game comes out on 25th September in Japan…and Morte would be less violent towards the bear and her cowardly husband who is afraid of roaches whenever he sees them crawling around on the floor.
This has caught my attention. Remember what the fake Kirie mentioned to the policeman in episode 7?
Mentioning that he visited many cities before meeting Morte at the restaurant with a massacre coming up later, that too has caught my attention who or what Kirie’s background was like. He must be a lonely person in the past, and I’m only 90% sure about it. And that fake cat ears, he’s still holding on to it all this time? Geez, you can sell it away for people who needed it more than you. And you won’t have to worry about being cashless to your journey to world destruction.
If I were you Kirie I would see this for money and no need to worry so much about being hungry and to beg in the streets.
That are rather hurtful words, Kirie. Reference at episode 6 of World Destruction.
That’s pretty mean of you, Kirie. Put yourself in her shoes, then. Again, reference at episode 6.
Just shut your **** mouth and eat your sweet potatoes! I can’t take this interrogation thing seriously anymore!
So Kirie overheard the conversation between Morte and that Desert Slayer back at Summerland and knows that her brother was a member of the Golden Lions and was killed in the conflict. Morte, who can’t take the pain of the death of her brother anymore screams at Kirie but everything was interrupted by the Morte’s younger brother lookalike as he lead the couple into his foster sister’s art room. And it was horrifying, all the paintings she took pains to get it done are either destroyed or abandoned. Looks like she’s a true Nina after all. And the episode ends. The preview’s going to be an awkward one, for those who haven’t seen it.
Get the picture? Holy cow, IT’S NINA! IT’S HER AFTER ALL!!!
Everyone in the preview speaks in a very robotic tone and it.makes.me.wanna.do.the.same. I-am-a-ro-bot—-Systems overload—shutting down—in a few—seconds—
Kirie: WHEN IN ROME, DO WHAT THE ROMANS DO! Robots has 108 principles to follow!
Toppi: Finally we get to see that Alligator teacher you’ve been talking about.
Morte: Conversation ending. Battery’s running low. (All destroyer systems shut down.)
