Mission-E #08 — The Love of Chiyoko and Kafka

August 26th, 2008


Don’t pick fake names off of billboards, people.


I’m rather busy today, and this crap is supposed to be out on Mondays anyway, so my apologies if this is a bit brief. It wasn’t the most terribly exciting episode anyway. Maori skips school because stalker Chinami is waiting for her at the gates, and instead gets picked up by Adol, who dolls her up, buys her a fancy necklace and the two have a nice (if vaguely inappropriate) date. Then Maori loses control of her power because she was embarrassed about holding hands, and has to use even more of it to stop the elevator from killing them. Adol puts it together that she’s the eeeeeeeeeeeeevil Oz girl that always gets in his way and blows her off before Chinami swoops in to score on the rebound and everybody’s all happy again now that the status quo has been restored.

Well, it just makes it all the more obvious that Adol will be switching sides at some point. Aside from Maori calling him a pervert multiple times, him trying to dress her up like a French bear prostitute, and the fact that he’s old enough to be her father, he was a nice enough fellow to her and she’s still holding onto the necklace that she electrozapped, which I’m sure will become important at some future point. It’s still hard for me to be excited about any episode of this show that doesn’t have electric girls beating up people though, so whatever. I suppose the whole "not watching Code-E" thing still isn’t helping me here with the whole "Adol’s sad about his vegetable sister" either. I don’t even think they’ve said her name in this one yet. Oh well. *shrug*


When did Oz get a danger room?

    Question: Are we sure that Adol is really that old? I have no doubt that he’s in his 20s at least, but he doesn’t really look /that/ old, and it wouldn’t be the first time that an anime has had a character that isn’t as old as people have thought. I tried to check myself, but the homepage (or what little there is on it atm) doesn’t even have a character listing, much less bios on them.

    Well, he’s already an international super spy in Code-E, so tack on 5 years to whatever your personal idea of the minimum age for being a spy is. I’d say at least 22 as an absolute minimum, though I was estimating around 25 or so (ergo about 30 for this timeline)

    Of course, anime ages are BS anyway. People who look 10 get to be 25 and all that.

  • Shinji103 says:

    Well Maori is already (essentially) a super spy in high school, so Aldo could be only 22 right now, lol. ^^b

    Still, I admit that I’m a bit partial towards MaorixAdol. It just seems nice to me, since Adol seemed to bring out a bunch of emotions out of Maori that we (or at least I) haven’t noticed in her before. And probably because however old Adol really is, he doesn’t /look/ old, lol.

    Aaaaand I’m a sucker for romance. ^^b

    HEY, I found it! Looks like my jokeing guess was more on the money than I had thought lol, Adol /was/ 17 back in Code-E, making him 22 now. So being only 5 years older than Maori (well, assuming she’s 17 as well), it’s not a bad matchup actually. ^^
