Who says anime has to make perfect sense? It’s entertainment! I mean, it’s not like other media such as US comics never had things that didn’t make sense, for example, gravity defying female bodies, impossible stunts (blocking bullets with a hard wooden stick or doing an air flip in the middle of a bullet storm), or having a group with the goal of taking down the rich, while launching an obviously expensive operation only the rich can pull off. Not to mention not having any hard copy backups of information locked somewhere away safe (basic corporate computer security lesson 101).
Of course, one of the points above now makes sense. Having the real perpetrator shot and seemingly dead is an ingenious move – usually that suspect is escapes detection for a while longer. Alas, we saw that kind of plot on TV already (I think in CSI).
But yes, as for the eternal argument (read: recent year argument) that anime must make sense, well hey, it’s good looking girls with big and juicy melons and the day is saved, thanks to:
A few pairs of melons, a wooden sword and one pair of red lucky panties.
It’s another turning off your brain and eat it (quoted Mike) show done almost right.
