Well, that added backstory and Mirei’s shock at seeing Momoka’s arm gives us a little more hint into whats going on. That incident we saw with Mirei & Momoka was an attempt at destroying the artificial arm project. As well as the origin of the ‘Soldier’ rumours.
Fear from the public grew stronger following this incident which led to the use of artificial islands as containment of the armed virus. Which is why Mamori was only sent now, despite her condition being diagnosed since childhood.
Most of the population appears to be like Mamori, sent with little knowledge of what their condition means, but some seem like they were planted there. Of them, Akira seems to know the most, it’s likely her family’s business has links with the Military since they were able to procure an artificial arm. She figures since this island was created by the Military, the ‘Soldier’ might be their key to getting home.
What we know now is the foundation of Warter’s belief, demonstration of peaceful integration into society, is completely unfounded since the Military is interested in using the islands for testing.
Mikugear Purple Robot was solely targeting Mamori this episode, which suggests the desired specimens are, in particular, powerful Ecsta. Mirei’s transformation is somewhat similar to when she used Momoka’s drive, so i’m guessing they tried, with limited success, to fuse Ecsta powers into her at some point.
What I hope to see.
- Aggressive Momoka
- Mirei Dual-wielding
- Momoka/Mirei vs Mamori/Akira
- They showed Mamori/Akira for a reason, right?
- More Meifon
- Maybe Meifon can have another Ecsta Form?
- I mean, Charlotte has a harem drive, it shouldn’t be that much of a stretch to have two forms.
- The Mastermind (Hexen?)
I have nothing against Mamori and she’s surely going to be true end, but I kind of want to see some Momoka/Mirei.
