BSS subbed this latest episode terribly, with lots of mistakes. Some of the lines didn’t make sense in their English, a good example being the sector 35 agent’s statement on how they can do stuff above the law, but the BSS people subbed it as "we’re trying to approve new laws" or something.
I felt this episode was overall kinda weak. It was pretty damn obvious Hei was going to lose his powers, but he’s so badass he can win without any powers. It doesn’t make sense why Tanya can kill Nikka outright with lots of insect bites, while she doesn’t kill Hei and instead just has her little bugs buzz around him. I might be slow but I still don’t get what the factions are fighting and what for, especially the ninja girl’s team.
Suou’s power is horrible. First of all, the silly cutscene where she draws her rifle out of her pendant was totally out of place and unnecessary, more suitable for the likes of magical girl shows. Next, her power is fucking useless because it’s the power to miss badly with unlimited ammo, while using a cumbersome, outdated and single shot weapon. There are tonnes of better anti-materiel rifles out there, and she happens to use a WW2 model far outclassed by modern varieties. Remember Speed Grapher? The main character, Saiga, had the power to destroy anything he took a photo of. Now that should’ve been Suou’s power, and she would have to pay it back by eating rolls of film lol.
The opening song by Stereopony is pretty good, it’s the first one of their songs I’ve liked. Normally their songs are shit. I’m so glad to see Mao alive, didn’t know he had such a convenient aspect of his power, his is totally one of the better powers out there to use in the real world.
