I so agree with Gai being a gary stu.

Why is Gai considered being Gary-Stu?

^Well...because it is too perfect, ok I do not think he is really perfect .but I must say that he fits perfectly into the category of Gary-Stu from what we saw. I think you know what that definition means, but just in case here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mary_Sue is a link that can help you to understand better what Gary-tsu mean.

Well, he's been suffering a lot of setbacks lately. Or at least he seems to be.

So that takes a bit of a Gary Stu edge off of him (I admit he was one for a few episodes though).

They always store it all inside their hearts thus making them fragile and easy to be hurt.
Spoil him? LOL Are you serious?

99% of their missions rely on Shu doing 90% of the work. If anything, Shu is spoiling them for risking his life for a bunch of random terrorists he doesn't even know.

Don't know why people bother defending the terrorists for their treatment of Shu. These guys only TAKE from Shu, never GIVING anything back. They just use him cause he's a superweapon at the moment.

These terrorists provide NO BENEFIT to Shu. Only reason Shu even helps these scums is cause he has a crush on Inori. Now Inori genuinuely likes him and has risked her life to save him a number of times.

P.S. Ayase is a stupid bitch. I hope she dies by the end of the series.

Sigh... it's not like I don't understand what they're aiming for. I actually liked episode 9 which got these points over far better. Yes, Shu's all traumatized and all, but the way they presented it just makes it too ridiculous to take seriously. They actually managed to try too hard.

So yes, a trauma victim will become catatonic, refuse the input of others, and even lose their sense of preservation. And Gai's a friggin asshole too; I'm not sure pointing a gun at him (even though I would too) is gonna help matters. You just don't do that kind of shit, but it's fair;y evident that both sides are incompetent as hell.

But really, this episode was actually watchable til near the end with Inori trying to understand Shu and actually treating him somewhat better (Really, why is she the one the seems the best this episode) Ayase is Ayase, and really, fuck off too.

Okay, that wasn't bad but the true ugliness came out during the Shu and Hare scene. That's gotta be some of the fakest attempts at sentimentality ever displayed on screen. Why is Hare in love with him again? Oh man, Shu, you just don't try to understand anyone at all.

Although the basic outline of the episode is sound, the way it was done just made everyone look like crap, and this cast is just no longer salvageable.

But don't worry, I'm dropping this series. I hope there's been no hard feelings with anybody. This series was fun to watch at points; and I actually enjoyed the 2 before this but further in and well... let's just say its method of storytelling is incompatible with my own tastes. Maybe if something lights up again, leave me a note.

To paraphrase a friend "I shouldn't have to be trying so hard to enjoy this series". Peace.

Aw, you're leaving the series. Too bad. Well, if it gets better...it probably wouldn't matter, because we're halfway through and all.

Yea. Here I am commenting about the first 60-seconds of the episode before the opening sequence.

Someone kill Shu already. He's gonna get people killed. Traumatized or not. This is a war situation; and if I see a coward like that in my ranks, I'd kill him myself.

He did that, and didn't pull the trigger? WTF

And per Gai's words: "Shu is dead to me", likewise, this series is dead to me. LOLOLOL
