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
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"
