BS6 OVA: Observations and oddities
Just some strange stuff I’ve observed in my course of watching the OVA religiously for the past 10 years. 😛 Enjoy…
1. Young Gilford?
This scene occurred during Hayami’s flashback at the start of EP3. In the final image, we see a grainy photo of presumably the Project Blue team gathered in a tropical resort. Is that Black woman sitting in front a young N’dulle Gilford? The resemblance is there…
2. A Bipedal Mutio?
Mutios are supposedly non-bipedal creatures, to emphasize the fact that they are more attuned to the sea environment. But one of them seemed to be standing upright and running just fine. 🙂 I didn’t notice this until the second or third viewing. Was this running Mutio meant as a lighthearted joke, or an implication of their potential to live on land and walk? Well, its good news to Hayami at least, if he’s thinking of umm…co-existing with her in future.
3. A human hand?
Ah yes, the bloody, severed hand of a poor human that proved to be a costly distraction for Hayami. Or is it? Looking closer, it appears that the hand in question has some really long and sharp fingernails. Purple in color too. Either its the hand belonging to some nasty human female with a bad sense of coloring, or its the hand of a hybrid. A Mutio or Cat-beast perhaps?
4. So why didn’t the Umigumo kill Hayami in EP3?
The Musuca only showed up at least 10 seconds later, enough time for Hayami to mutter a couple of sentences. Were Mutio’s siblings actually listening to her pleas? Were they just playing chicken with Hayami? I still can’t think of a good answer to this, up till today. One that isn’t “because the story can’t continue with Hayami being dead”.
5. What is Kino up to?
Your aim’s a little off my dear…
This concludes another meaningless post.
