While Ledo continues to get used to Earth, we get some belly dancing…
From last time, I have mentioned the critiquing of the Alliance. Apparently, Ledo had a horrible life without any freedom before he landed on Earth. While he knows how to speak their language well, he doesn’t have the idea what money is and how to use it. I suppose that people who serve the Alliance not only lack a culture, but probably given crap to eat. Thankfully, some of his peers took him to eat actual food to show him how to use the money for good food.
On the other hand, Ledo still have some difficulties adjusting, but he is getting better. As shown with him pointing a gun at a harmless cooked octopus, he is still in his war mentality. Not only that, he doesn’t know how to swim, which is a reason why he can’t use a regular robot. This just shows that people in the Alliance is only trained for war and don’t take any hobbies during their free time. Thankfully, I was happy that Bellows and that other guy help him feel at home and suggested salvaging, which Ledo is a natural at. It’s a step in the right direction.
Despite the hilarious moments with Chamber turning the fish to mush, Ledo’s inability to swim was hilarious along with his attempts to fit in. But aside from that, this show got some unfounded criticism because it’s not a traditional Urobuchi story. I don’t know, but maybe this is a breath of fresh air as this show a somewhat happy slice of life show with robots and a flooded Earth. Then again, who would deny that Amy’s dancing is amazing? Nobody!
