What is Hibiki’s stance on the fight against the demons and even fellow man?

RECAP:  Alcor reveals himself to be the origin of the Nicaea demon summoning app and somehow affiliated with the Demons.  Yamato warns that the 4th day of Septentrion attack will consist of a 3-point attack on the JPs HQs in Nagoya, Osaka, and Tokyo.  Despite all of their differences, Hibiki, Ronaldo, and Yamato are forced to work together to fight back at each of these locations.

Aside from the comedy to calm things down after all the action lately, this episode reveals and clears up quite a few things that have only been barely touched upon.  Alcor’s affiliation with the Demons was pretty much a given to us viewers, but we are still kept in the dark as to his true relation to them.  Called “The Anguished One,” Alcor is also uncertain about himself.  Just why does he have a remote sense of faith in humanity when all other demons have deemed them weak and useless?  My money is on a half-demon, half-human theory.

With this fine dining scene in Tokyo, we sort of catch a glimpse as to why exactly Yamato feels the need to dictate himself as the leader for the incoming new world.  The high-class politicians of Tokyo only care about their own well-being.  Yamato considers them incompetent trash, unable to use what little power they have to do something about the Septentrion.  In this sense, he is slightly in the right when he says that he wants to change the system, even if it means he becomes the villain in many people’s eyes.

To further add suspense to the incoming battle, Fumi has located Nitta-san as some sort of “sacrifice” candidate for something called “Lugh.”  Is this some kind of secret weapon system that JPs has been developing to battle against the Septentrion?  It certainly sounds like it is and is the most likely theory considering the current situation in Japan in this Demon war.

Rating:  3/5

Isn’t it nice to try and be strong for the one you like, Nitta-san?
