Now that Ledo has reunited with Cmmander Kugel, what will happen next?
RECAP: Ledo returns to be under the command of Kugel, who seems to have landed on the other side of Earth. Because Kugel has taken advantage of his “God” status, he was able build up his fleet under the guidelines by Alliance standards. With no choice but to surrender against heavier weaponry, the Flange Fleet is now under the Kugel Fleet’s control. Next, for Kugel to properly lead Humanity towards proper utility, he aims to attack Gargantia as an “example.”
Pinion’s cocky attitude has made it really hard for me to enjoy this series as much as I should be. He is the kind of person that wants to take action, getting other people involved in it, but doesn’t want to bear the responsibility for said people. For one, it is his entire fault that pirates bothered to attack them in the Sea of the Mists. Why announce that you destroyed all the dangerous creatures and are pillaging the loot for yourselves? Such a taunt is just asking to be messed with. A part of me hopes that something terrible happens to Pinion in the future.
Unlike Ledo’s situation, Kugel came upon Earth society as a God-like figure. Reveled as a God, he harnessed obedience over the fearful Earthlings. With that, he created a Fleet that is ruled by him as its sole leader, making more use of each individual. Much like the way the Galactic Alliance works, it is focused on the weak supporting the strong, and disposing of the useless trash. This is completely different from what Ledo has come to understand how a society may prosper. This becomes even more of a conflict when Kugel gives Ledo his first order of business…
… Attacking Gargantia. This was rather predictable, considering that Kugel’s Fleet is the polar opposite type of society to Gargantia. With this order, Ledo is now torn between fulfilling his duty and doing what is right. Since he has always gone by his duties, he still doesn’t exactly know how to truly “live.” After all, he left Gargantia to “fulfill his duty.” Now that Ledo understands what it means to be “human,” I can definitely see a possibility of a battle between Ledo and Kugel in the future.
