No, more like someone who goes under grotesque transformations to fight and have an EPIC brother/inferiority complex.

Sigh... Just watched 14.

Xamdou is simply amazing. Amazing. But honestly, because of the extensive plot and the detailed "between the lines" speculations that must be made, it's hard enough to keep up with full knowledge.

Not only did I feel missing out on certain important informations due to inability to remember every plot-determining line in the episodes, but the MONTH DELAY didn't really help much either - After watching Ep 13 and 14, I kind of feel lost - the jump of scenes between Zanbani and the pair of Akiyuki / Nakiami is confusing enough, due to the fact that they only show scenes that are needed - in other words, minimalist. Once again, the delay didn't help me fill in the gaps between these minimalist scenes either. It's the one thing that I love about Xamdou, not always having to explain things straight to the point, but requiring some in-depth thinking and insight into details, but it's also the one thing that's killing me now.

I need to rewatch the first half soon.. Otherwise I might keep going and not be able to fully grasp what the plot's trying to convey towards the end.

Any sort of romance in this series is very, very subtle and played down. I suppose you could say there really isn't romance at the moment, but there is a possibility for some?
Spoiler for romance:

Anyway, just saw episode 15. A mostly Nakiami-centric episode, but with some shots of Akiyuki (of course), some Haru, Kakisu & Prois action as well. Also a bit on Akiyuki's father and his military friend (seems like his plan is finailly making some progress) - and Nazuna as well. And of course, as shown in the preview last week, a bit of Sannova. The end of this episode as wella s the preview somehow gives me the impressiont hat the shit is about to hit the fan, so to speak..

I want to like Haru, I really really want to like her, but watching her and her actions, especially in 14 while all the troops surrounded Akiyuki's body, makes me dislike her more and more. She's like the type of person who can spout a lot of caring lines but in the end can watch someone torment and not do anything about it. I mean there wasn't much that she could do during that scene, but it's just her display of emotions or something, I dunno.

Akiyuki has finally lost himself, this should be interesting.

Haru's certainly becoming another kind of character than one expected her to be. She seemed like she could really become one kickass character at the start, but she really seems to didsappoint peoples exceptations on that part. She goes from being a rather strong-minded, decisive girl to a more weak-minded, indecivie girl who can apaprently only think about Akiyuki - even going as far as to claim that she loves him and yet seemingly refuses to really speak up for him, defend him or, such as it is, even risk her life for him when it comes down to it. As things are she certainly seems set on the path of becoming a tragic character, so to speak...

What could she do? She was ordered to leave and in that society, duty comes first. The commander said he wouldn't harm either of them and there was no chance of escaping. Best bet was to try to free them later.

Yeah that's what I was saying in my post when i said "I mean there wasn't much that she could do during that scene, but it's just her display of emotions or something, I dunno."

But still she put herself in the situation to be commanded. And is still really doing ANYTHING i the army? It's more like she's just there to torment herself, like purposefully. There are many other ways to take care of her sister.

Not necressarilly like Shirely, no, but, well... all of her actions so far seems to be turning out to be big mistakes either way. It's just one thing after the other for her.Even if thigns may not turn out as badly for her as poor Shirley... They might not go so well for her either. But we'll see.

Spoiler for Episode 15:


Anyone checked out the official site lately? The character page has been completely done up, though with three slots remaining for characters to appear, and one of those slots is a huge one meaning a main character like Akiyuki/Nakiami to show up.

Here's the image.

Stealing my screenshot now?

Anyway, yes, I certainly noticed it earlier today, hence my post on Narutofan. The three empty slots.. one is bound to be Kujireika/Sun-maned. The other two... Well, I'm wondering if the Bearded Guy might not be one of'em - there did seem to be somethine about him... Another possiblity is the hiruken emperor as well.
