With 20% more future vision, induced by onion breath.
|Y’ello, peeps. You know the drill, right? If you have been following OC’s posts, you already know, she’s off till 28th Feb for vacation so I’ll cover for her till then. You should be aware that the second season of Phi Brain has already been announced so the story will not end with the next five episodes. Just make a wish for your favourite characters to survive!|
Gammon has gotten into thick of things by becoming a POG giver. I’m still trying to figure out his motive, sniffing out the real deal of Rook most probably? Though, currently, he’s pretty busy designing puzzles that would be the death of Kaito. Oh man, where has this friendship gone wrong? Before my theories though, let’s quickly get over the episode highlights:
From the preview last week, the staff doesn’t waste any time on dilly dallying over emo friends rather starts up with a three dimensional puzzle designed by Gammon to challenge Kaito and the capability of his Orpheus’s armlet. Things go downhill with the armlet acting up and showing grainy footage from I Am Legend. Of course, anyone would get confused and what Kaito deemed as victory, turned into his failure with Gammon’s cheeky won. However, no fall-to-death happened because Bishop intervened under Rook’s orders and whisked the new POG leader away to their HQ.
Other POG Givers are literally lackeys to Gammon now as he achieved something none of them could: make a deadly puzzle to corner Kaito. Though, Bishop is not easy to trust and he keeps a close eye on the eccentric, tea-drinking POG leader. Elena almost spews out everything that a watcher must be thinking at this point about his allegiance still active with Kaito and this being his way to infiltrate the POG faction. However, Gammon denies all of this and reveals his ultimate wish to become the Phi Brain after solving the Divine Puzzle. Sounds shallow to me and I definitely feel sorry for Elena.
On the other hand, Nonoha is sweetly klutzy as ever, helping Mahiru with food and love in absence of her baka brother. She’s literally the only one left in the Kaito-camp but she seems lost alone because Kaito has too much on his plate right now. Rook’s prediction of Nonoha unable to stop his progress is becoming true. Don’t you hate it when his scheme hits bull’s eye?! Whatever Gammon is trying, he should know better than thinking his money replacing his affection. The sibling/friendship bonds made by kids who grow up without parent(s) is very strong, which gives me another reason to rage at Gammon. I can only hope to know the cause of his discarding Mahiru later. All of this has gained him the trust of Rook and Bishop for now, even if the latter still seems wary of him.
The force is dark in this one
We have been noticing Kaito’s armlet going berserk since a few episodes but who would have thought it would induce vision of future with Jin in it?! According to whom, the power that Pythagoras sealed in the Divine Puzzle would destroy the humankind when unleashed. His best friend Baron is of the same opinion that the ultimate puzzle shouldn’t be solved by mere mortals. However, Kaito being the main protagonist has to swear to solve this particular puzzle by hook or crook… to him it’s saving the world, while to Gammon it’s to achieve the Divine Revelation. OTL.
More Divine Punishment!
Gammon: “Puzzles are beautiful~~~” Kaito: “=P”
Now that you are at it, clean up my room and get my laundry too.
Rook the voyeur >.>
DAAAWWW, Nonoha. You are the only sane one left!
Please ensue the group facepalm because the main characters are not taking puzzles seriously! Kimochi no? Try to understand the Divine Puzzle’s feelings because it doesn’t want to be solved! Idiots, every one of them! I can understand Kaito’s detachment right now. Everything he thought dear in life turned out to be literal pawns on a chess board arranged by POG. His parents, friends and even acquaintances share the same agenda of him becoming a true Phi Brain. Even if the same people loved him and tried to take care of him, everything in his life has turned into a farce and this is a strong factor causing Orpheus’s armlet to not work coherently. He should definitely be worried about why his armlet is acting up and not giving him result during puzzle time. Of course, there’s something very wrong. Rook may keep grinning like Chucky but I see deterioration rather than progress from Orpheus’s armlet. Is it all that it has been piped up to be? Will he find a symbiotic relationship with it or it will turn into a parasite? Let’s see how the climax of this season is handled.
The main characters are all acting like a bunch of weirdoes currently except for Nonoha. Sweet, sweet, Nonoha, who has to bear the emo Kaito since his best friend turned out to be an evil faction leader. From the preview even, it seems Nonoha would be trying her best to knock some sense into Kaito. You go, girl! I’m cheering for you! Overall, things are looking bad with Gammon joining hands with POG but it can all be a scheme that he or the Baron thought of. I just can’t label Gammon as shallow who has been a father/brother to his sister and has a kind side to him with cute puzzle (Chido Setsu, anyone?). Also, a pat on his back in designing a puzzle to puzzle Kaito; nah, seriously. I know someone has to be near Rook to know when he’ll make his next move, right? But I don’t think even Bishop gets a memo on Rook’s agenda, which is filled with only **** Kaito ****. Would you give your homolust a rest, Rook? >.>
I don’t even want to guess what the ultimate treasure, the Divine Revelation, is. If it can sprout a whole association and organized nurturing of Phi Brain kids, I won’t be surprised that its power is something monumental and beyond imagination. Now what’s up with that vision and why Jin was even there? Kaito should listen to his mentor, even if the dude is talking to him from a reddish grungy haze. I’ll stick to my theory of him being Kaito’s father (Yes, I would welcome that Darth Vader reference of, “I’m your father”), and along with Baron he must have devised a way to keep the Divine Puzzle under wraps or was that a hint of a true Phi Brain, having the ability to solve the puzzle without the destruction shown? But if Kaito and Gammon both have decided that they would solve it, we ARE in trouble; yes, siree. We’ll see how this quest for Divine Revelation goes, even if it’s not meant for mortals. And I want ALL the characters to participate rather than just Kaito vs. Rook. That would be plain old mean and I want to see Ana and Cubic in the game again.
Beware of more future visions!
Seems like, we would finally know what the Baron has been up to. Though his meeting with Gammon smells like a penguin and by that I mean, a ploy. I hope there is one because rather than just free-floating, some purpose for Kaito is what’s needed right now.
