Jonah at least has the excuse of being a child, but the way I see it, each member of Team Koko is very formidable in their own niche – and Velmet is a remarkable artist at close combat – but Lehm is the one who should truly be feared. He just kills – efficiently, without malice or mercy, never unnecessarily taking a life or sparing one. He’s the perfect soldier – and he’s chosen to dedicate himself to supporting Koko. What does that say about her – and about Jonah, whose instincts were sharp enough to tell him that this was the first question he should be asking after he joined the group?
Honestly though, Lehm would not charge because he knows he himself doing so is just stupid....Valmet OTOH, she has a damned good chance of winning and she knows it. Result speaks for itself too.

Can't really say it's a minus for Valmet, just that all of them have their own strengths and weaknesses....Lehm is just simply what any professional veteran spec ops trooper is.

Well, episode 7 can be summed up to a few words:

Spoiler for Words:


Ahh, Koko getting a little tipsy with the wine eh? She may be dangerous, but that doesn't mean she can't be cute and good at some other things And then she, er, climbs into the toilet that the noodles girl was in. What more do I have to say?

The ending was awesome bullet to the buttocks, Valmar almost suffocating that guy

Valmet's fight was nicely animated and choreographed. It wasn't anything ground-breaking but it was by far the best action scene in the series so far IMO. Really enjoyed it.

The end of the episode was very funny. Jonah is such an endearing character. Despite everything he's gone through, he's still a kid deep down. It looks like he's slowly opening up to the rest of the team. They almost feel like a family now.

Episode 7 had many highs and some lows IMHO.
The good parts were the Valmet/Karen fight, Lehm's sniping skills, the verbal skirmish between Koko and Chang, the introduction of Chocolade and the funny epilogue.

However I also felt a bit unfulfilled because two plot threads were left hanging: Valmet's past and Koko's deal with Dr. Miami.
I expected Karen to at least spit out the name of her master; also I found a bit OOC for Lehm to let a dangerous enemy live. I understand that the author is preparing a rematch between the two women but still...
As for the scientist, after all that effort she just escapes again, leaving only a note to Koko. Kinda anticlimatic.

Bringing men who are inexperienced in that particular environment greatly reduces the chances of winning. Even experienced soldiers will find it hard to adapt to new environments without the mental and physical preparation for it.

Interesting episode.
Koko enjoying a business lunch.
The rest of the team chasing doctor Minami.
It was great watching them fight and take down the enemy with ease.
Looks like Africa is over with for now..
Jonah was totally LOL with his final statement!

The Valmet/Karen fight was a little one sided.lol. Valmet is a beast thats for sure. Koko being koko of course threw out. Scarecrow working with Koko towards the end is hilarious cuz he continues to talk sh*t to her while doing it. And the Jonah bullet in buttox part was comedy as well. Totally love this anime despite the obvious flaws.

Which Lehm and Jonah took great advantage of over the Taishinhai contractors since the PLA don't do jungle ops nowadays.

Valmet really stole the episode for me. She was badass and crazy, a killer combination. I'm not even bothered by all those shots they fired never hitting. Did a bit of a face plant at the other soldiers' stupidity though, don't stand up during a gun fight.
Another great moment was Koko looking in on Schokolade in the toilets, very funny.

All the females have that crazy look in their eyes...
Valmet was a little scary and awesome at the same time but the highlight was Lehm's badassery.
I loled with the blonde's shot in the butt, he is the incompetent of the group.
And Jonah was so cute with his fear of injections

Is there any reliable research or article about this kind "neurosis"?

If I were in battlefield and can't handle anymore, probably just running. But not walking around looking for the enemy just like in this episode.

It's not that. It's inexperience coupled with battlefield stress causing people to stand up when the shooting dies down thinking the enemy is dead or retreated or something...

Neurosis is probably an inaccurate translation.

Shell shocked or combat stress would be a more accurate description of whats happening here. Based on what i seen in Afghanistan people do all kind of stupid shit like this on Both sides when the bullets start flying. Its all a matter of training and experience. You really don't know what you are made out of until that first bullet fly past your head.

Don't forget that shooting in the mountains can be very disorienting because of the echoing of gunfire. The constant loud noises would cause stress to people who aren't prepared for it.

Those guys were so out of it, when the shooting stopped, they were in a daze, which can be seen by their actions.

Also, I can't discount the possibility that in true combat pragmatist fashion, Koko's team are wearing Surefire noise reduction earplugs, which muffle gunshots an fallow normal communication.

Shokolade was cute though. And Koko's definitely doesn't care about societal boundaries and Ugo being worried about drunk Koko's is hilarious in hindsight when one recalls that Shizuka Itou's blog is called A Drunkard's Diary.

Looks like I need to write Funco/Jonah, unless you want to take a crack at that.

What amuses me is that Jonah's real name, Jonathan Mark, is the same name as the very first fanfic OC I ever created, way back in 2002. Lol.
