I dunno if I would call it "disturbing" but it's certainly a clue that there's something very strange about the situation (by our standards). It gives the impression that the "adults" have little practical experience with "children", which is rather odd.

No , more like they know what to do , all according to the instruction just like other plantation , however they are quite surprise that the children of plant 13 reach puberty faster than other plant and Dr Franxx consider them being test subject .

Didn't someone mention a few pages ago that all the adults are "evolved"? So...maybe Nana and Hachi are not considered "adults". I also think that it's suggestive that the kids are cloned for fighting and that there isn't a "positive family environment" for any of the soldiers to rely on for child-rearing experiences or coupling for that matter.

Maybe the adults are like the grey aliens in Stargate. They reached immortality by transfer their conscience into clones of themselves and therefore reproduction lost it's meaning over the time (to a point their bodies degenerated and were unable to have offspring). Or maybe they just have immortal bodies and forbidden to have children (to prevent the risk of overpopulation or something like that). Anyway, it's an interesting theme to explore.

it takes above average writing to take this overall idea of an episode and make it into something that still develops every pilot and the situation they're in. kudos.

also, where's Mentar with his foot fetish? haha. there was a pretty epic frame this ep for that.

This episode amuses me but that's about it. It feels much like Evangelionís filler-ish episodes. Characters are given more time to breathe their personalities on the screen and we see tidbit of chara-development and plot-development.

That said, I think the ďrooftop fallĒ is an unnecessary piece of split-second faux-drama. Iím not sure what the showrunners intended with that scene. Itís not funny, itís not romantic, itís not dramatic and if that scene is meant as trolling then itís a weak one since we all know falling from a rooftop wonít kill 02 (not after we see her sending a man flying with just a slap and her acrobats in higher altitude when she broke free from the APE SWAT-team back then). We saw Hiro worried and ran to her during the fall, but of course he does. Previous episode already established that Hiro cares about 02 so much, so this scene is quite redundant.

I still enjoy the episode though.

Probably just the show doubled down on the whole "I'm not human." aspect of her. And this happened right after she asked: "Do I seem a little more human now?".

Then again, maybe this was just 02 amused herself by testing Hiro if he would try to catch her like she was just a normal girl after basically showing her inhuman traits during the whole chase.

I agree that the fall seemed a little unnecessary but maybe they thought that would make a good conclusion after the whole sequence.

The fall doesn't need to mean anything. Sometimes characters can just be cool. But I think it does. It is the second time she did the false falling. The first was episode 3. I think there is a cry for help, she wants to be saved. Despite always relentlessly moving forward she's been struggling with her life for a long time. It represents her existence at the edge. A glimpse at her fragility. And a way to bring us back a little from a moment of pure happiness with a moment of melancholy by reminding us of her struggle. It also links up to what Hiro says at the end, that he wants to be stronger to support her.

The episode it was good, overall, but didn't entertain me that much. I agree it has a fillerish vibe that made me stay not fully attentive.

Anyways, if I got it right it seems like the kids are going through all the phases they neeed, just not when they should have. The puberty, differentiation male/female, then the concept of death. They are facing the truth about "transience of life" (related to their position as soldiers). Truth that apparently kept slipping away from their minds. So they needed to check this point too.
If we follow these steps we will naturally reach the teenage rebellion phase soon, the one when finally the kids will question their parents. Or in this case parent. all the hints are already there but I like if this is the approach they meant for them to get to that point.

About 002 second "rooftop fall” I'm linking this one to the scientist advice to hiro to not get too attached. Maybe he really will become too attached to 002 to the point to lose his clear vision and objectivity. (of course, read "too attached" like "be in love").

pretty clear that's what they're going for. it's a not so subtle reminder that even though she was trying to be more human there, the monster is right beneath the surface.

one thing i find funny is beside she obvious being a "hibrid monster" she still the "most human" amonge them, because she know all the feelings and traumas of "life" while the team 13 basically where unaware of "what means be really a human", they so far where just "battle tools as she, but they where almost clules about anything other than battle, while 02 look and try to act really like a "normal person" and girl.

Kim Kardashian likes a seasonal anime.

That's it, this is the day that History will record as the one in which anime became officially mainstream .
