Here’ are my thoughts:
So the Snake Syndicate released UA virus at the International Anti-Terrorism Conference, where Bill on weed the fictional President of US and the representatives from all over the world are trapped. With some manipulation, the Syndicate is betting on the US government will order the US military to do that drastic thing – [spoiler] bombing the conference center via Stealth Bomber [/spoiler], in term, will possibly cause an international conflict and leads to a war? Is that part I of their scheme?
Part II seems to be some kind of economic manipulation. The front company of the Snake does a economic thing – [spoiler] sells off all their shares on Nasdaq and cause a market crash [/spoiler], and so…What, I don’t know.
My two issues with these schemes:
1. Just because the previous US government was disgustingly aggressive militarily doesn’t mean they would take the fictional operation shown in this show. Certainly, not the present government
Come on! Have you watched 24? Have you watched Air Force I? Have you seen all these Hollywood films? XD
Kidding aside, with more than 9 hours left, they would’ve tried something else. Seriously. There are so many talented people in US that even if the [spoiler] vaccine [/spoiler] never arrives, they would’ve figured out something. That’s not pride; that’s trusting the intelligence and the power of teamwork, US style. Most likely, if it were any other countries in the world, they’d just perform the destructive operation on the conference center.
But oh well, this is what makes Canaan the show so exciting! I Enjoyed this part.
2. I doubt the [spoiler] market crash [/spoiler] would really cause that effect in US and abroad. Hey, we’re in a global economic crisis but the governments are working something out. But my argument is weak, I admit, in part because I didn’t study economics and don’t really know how the second part of the scheme is going to pan out.
OK, now Canaan is even more powerful than before…I mean, I always thought the Mystic Eyes of Death Perception in Tsukihime and Kara no Kyoukai was super awesome, but damn…The omni-tracking eyes that Canaan has is even better! It even interferes with electronics…somehow.
Lian has been pushed over the edge over and over again, and with her crazy obsession, there bound to be a gigantic explosion to come. Once again, Rierie does a wonderful job portraying the crazy woman. Her feelings run in a deadly, tightly stretched string, and Alphard keeps on unintentionally teasing and not caring about snapping it hard. Alphard is way too cocky and not caring about any possible consequences. In any case, Rierie wins with performance in voice acting here.
There are more plots but let’s save them for later.
Great animation as usual.
