It seems that the “unleashing of desires” is not making things any better.
From the look of things, I think having one’s desires unleash at unpredictable times is several times worse than body swapping. With body swapping, you can control yourself from doing stupid things, although there is a huge possibility it will happen. Still, both are bad no matter how you look at it since Heartseed can make someone do something that will take their life away. I think it’s bound to happen if someone gains a desire to commit suicide in a similar fashion to how Iori jumped off a bridge. Either way you look at it, the Culture Club is at a big loss.
Underneath this madness, I think Inaba has a point even though she unintentionally had an outburst towards Yui. I think she got mad for the fact that Yui feels scared about what might happen with her beating up men that she doesn’t want to leave her room until it’s over. It goes to say: “if you live in fear, the terrorists have already won.” I felt that this phrase and what Inaba says to Yui are very similar. If they isolates themselves from each other, Heartseed will get bored and force something drastic on one of the members to stir things up. To prevent that, Inaba thinks that each member should take control of the situation so he gives up. Still, that is wishful thinking as Yui remains at home while something bad happened to Inaba from the episode preview.
While things turn for the worse, there were some hilarious moments triggered by their desires. The one with Iori saying “Yahoo” after finishing a quiz was just plain silly. I don’t know there are people out there who want to say that for fun during an examination. At the same time, I think it will get the professors angry if you do it in real life. Also, Taichi’s desire to sleep was rather hilarious. His younger sister might have enjoyed it while being worried about him at the same time. Besides the other incident where he acts like a White Knight and Inaba almost had Iori do something dirty, I felt that the events in store with the club fighting again while Inaba probably lands in the hospital from Heartseed’s 2nd intervention caused the situation to worsen. ¶
