This episode was confusing. But I did like it.
So in this episode, Hatano one of the spies from the D-Agency encounters the French Resistance. This episode showed that the training that Hatano went through at the D- Agency paid off. Hatano’s amnesia in this episode wasn’t a problem for him as he was able to remind himself not to reveal any information to the French Resistance.
Personally I would have liked to have seen Hatano struggle with his amnesia. I have to remind myself as I type this that Amnesia means partial or total memory loss. I was about to say that because Hatano has amnesia he isn’t supposed to remember anything.
I actually had to look up Hatano’s name on google because I wasn’t able to tell who the spy was in this episode. Most of the guys in this anime look the same. When I watch anime, I like the characters to look different that way I can tell them apart. Is it just me who was having trouble with this?. This episode was good because we got to see some action but in terms of the story, I’m a bit confused.
I know that Hatano explained at the end of the episode that everything that happened was planned, but I should be able to understand how things work without having it explained to me by a character. Some of the events that happened in this episode should have clued me in to what’s going on.
The only characters I know are Satuma and Colonel Yuki and Miyoshi, the other characters we don’t know anything about. If your going to have me care about a character’s actions and thoughts, then build them up.
Building up a character is better than sticking them in an episode and making them badass. Making them out to be cool and mysterious means nothing to me if I don’t know anything about them, give me a reason to care. Did anyone feel annoyed when Hatano explained that everything went according to plan to Colonel Yuki?. Seriously?
I felt this episode was a bit pointless, I mean sure we got to see Hatano figure out that one of the members of the French Resistance was a german spy but what else did we discover in this episode besides that? I did like this episode despite everything I pointed out in this review, the music and the animation were great in this episode.
You know now that I think about it, I feel sorry for Alain, one of the members of the French Resistance. How will explain all the drama with Hatano to the resistance?. Poor guy.
So this show is going to show all the spies at the D-Agency in different situations right?. That’s what I gathered from this episode alone. I’m hoping that this show won’t get repetitive. I hope the spies don’t always win in the end, hopefully some of them will mess up. Hatano almost did in the episode, but everything was tied in a neat little bow at the end.
What did you think of this episode? Were you confused as I was? Let me know.
