I'm confused about the part at the end when Itazu said that "when he made the PM said uncle... the MP of the opposing party started to catch on, but his intelligence source was replaced with a mail from his lover.. so whoever made this phone must be closed to the state power..." i rewatched ep 5 but still couldn't see the connection.. any explanation? thanks!!

haha this is one the many, many questions i have for the series...

So we know 6 Selecao:
I - Mononobe
IV - Kondo (dead)
V - Hajime Hiura (dead)
IX - Akira
X - Yuuki
XI - Kuroha Diana Shiratori

ETA: Mononobe is also Selecao #1 in the official character list. Yuuki is still missing.

Seriously I hope Ohsugi gets killed off. He's jealous and goes off to do his little investigation only to start misunderstanding.

and the Ironic thing is that because of his "jealousy" , he will be the one that has a good chance of surviving. Don't worry, I think the Eden gang will still help Akira regardless of Oosugi's warning and this will cause a big tragic. I predict that at least two members will die and this will weight heavily on Saki. Oosugi will break all ties with the Gang after they still decide to help Akira. He will get a reward for losing the girl, Stay alive.

If Akira needs the Eden club's help to stop #1 (and since Itazu sent the data to Micchon, the plot dictates that Akira's definitely gonna need them), then they have no other choice than help him (even Oosugi), because if those 60 tomahawk missiles really strike Japan, a freaking lot of people (probably including the Eden guys) are gonna die.

yeah, that is why i said that Oosugi's effort are meaningless. I doubt Oosugi will help.

If after knowing the truth he still refuses to help, then he's just an asshole. But I don't think he's like that. Once he realizes what really is going on, I think he's going to cooperate with Akira and the Eden guys.

yeah, once he find what is going on. The thing is that I don't think he will get a chance to find out what is going on. He already gave the Eden group an ultimatum. I could be wrong and he still go back, but considering he is the only one with a job, the chances of he cutting all ties with them are good.

I think that if Oosugi were to help Akira, people will forgive him. This is of course because people inner hatred for Oosugi is because he is an obstacle to Saki and Akira being together. I actually want Oosugi to cut all ties with the group, a few of the eden group dying and Saki at last resort come asking Oosugi for help to save Akira at the last minute.

Looking back at episode 1 and now this it's clear that #1 caught up with Akira and forced him to get naked with a gun in front of the white house. I'm guessing the plan was for him to be killed or something. Who really knows. Is #1 the supporter?

patsu should be alive if he just ask Saki or Micchon akira email
the possibility that he don't have their email is absurd

Ah that's why. Now it's beginning to make sense.

In episode 1, the man in the car outside the White House telling Juiz that Akira's "finished" is most definitely Mononobe, as he is seen with the ruby ring on his finger, and if you play the video slowly, you can just make out the Roman numeral "I" on his phone.

Of course, there he is again in episode 5, seen with the ruby ring and the #1 phone. Though there was another man whose face wasn't seen, standing next to Mononobe, remarking amusingly about how the PM's approval ratings gone up by just one "gyafun".

Either I could be thinking too much and he's just a normal civil servant colleague of Mononobe's, working in the Ministry of Defense; or he could be another Selecao, the Supporter, or even Mr Outside himself.



Though from the look of his phone, it doesn't look like a Selecao phone, so he's probably just a normal civil servant. Then again, it wasn't mentioned whether Mr Outside himself uses a Selecao phone or not.

Sorry again for misunderstanding you, I've thought everyone is aware why he is selecao number 1, via seeing his phone a few times already.
That's why I prefer to call him like that, and I don't even bother to remember his real name .
As for his colleague I really doubt he's a selecao.

Got so involved in the discussion that I forgot to mention this minor oversight to the excellent guys at gg fansubs: You forgot to remove a commercial in between.

they probably were in a rush and the raw the timer used had the commercial, so instead of reencoding the file, sending it back to the timer, they just released it like that.

gg did it last week with a Star Trek commercial, too. It's just there for "weird ad, lolwut" more than anything else. (Though it also breaks up the two halves of the episode, so I guess it has some actual function....)
