Blue Seed Episode 22: "Sadness, Fate, Momiji Kushinada"

Hello Dwellers and Welcome to the Basement

Today we're going over episode 22 of the Anime 'Blue Seed', this episode is titled "Sadness, Fate, Momiji Kushinada" and showed how the government was going to respond to the aragami planet growth


Blue Seed Episode 21 "Sadness, Fate, Momiji Kushinada!"
Original Air Date: February 22, 1995
English Air Date: January 15, 2000

The moon’s orbit has changed, Tokyo and other major cities in Japan have been turned into real urban jungles with all of the Aragami plants

The Prime Minister orders for Momiji to be sacrificed and the TAC to be dissolved, this could be seen as a result of Matusdara’s solutions to previous Aragami encounters not working against the plants or because Mr. Kunikda, Ryoko & Koume go rouge to rescue Momiji

Momiji is surprisingly okay with being sacrificed, cause she figures Kusanagi will either save her or she’ll get revenge for his death. This leads to Ryoko slapping some sense into Momiji, and the rescue is assisted by Sakura

Kusanagi is alive and with Kaedi, Susano-O and Murokomuo, but his his energy levels are dropping, it is not explained as to why he is in their possession

For the first time since the early episodes, The Kushinada Effect / Energy is really mentioned as a way to deal with the Aragami, which raises some questions as to why research using it as a weapon was not done throughout the series, but Matsudara’s inventions and solutions were working previously so I assume they put the Kushinada Effect on the back burner.

4 Episode Left: Next episode will be covered on Friday Episode 24: "Meeting Again, Starting The Journey, I Won’t Give Up"
