Hello Dwellers and Welcome to the Basement...

We are talking anime tonight, and we're up to episode 16 of Blue Seed, titled "Japan is a Paradise! Tears in Wakasa"... an episode that puts the spotlight on Mr. Kunikida





PLANTED SEEDS
Original Air Date: January 18, 1995 / English Airdate: December 25, 1999

Kunikida heads out to investigate the death of his old friend, and is greeted by his young wife who holds a deadly secret. Meanwhile, deformed bodies begin piling up as sightings of the "Thousand Year Nun" (a strange woman who would stay young forever by devouring the flesh of a mermaid) are reported.

For the most part, Kunikida has been out of action, really just serving in the role as ‘leader’, meeting with higher officials, but no real stories have revolved around him, and that is fixed with this episode.

We get a clear cut direction for the remainder of the series: Escape & Rescue

First up, HAP finds another NDE-Angel , a Cuban Guitarist named Renata, who is more than pleased to just let things be… but being a devious douche who is going to get what he wants, breaks up the friendship between Homer and Prairie by bringing Home…

TIME AND RELATIVE DIMENSIONS
Episode itself is titled Invasion, original air date: March 13, 1965, 12 Million Viewers (down 1 million from previous week)

The objective of this episode was quite clear: escape from the existing danger and plan an attack on the Zarbi & the Animus to build towards the final chapter, and I think that was accomplished on all fronts.

So we’re start with Barbara, as she and her Menoptera allies end up in one of sacred underground temple that are around Vortis, and encounter Hylnia and Hilio… and in an interesting turn of events, it’s Barbara who is coming up with the battle plans. Don’t forget, Barbara is a history teacher and part of history is war, and with all the situations she’s been in since meeting Susan and The Doctor, she comes up with a plan of attack, which is a mock attack to cause a diversion so the Menopte…
