ACTIVERAID -Special Public Security Fifth Division Third Mobile Assault Eighth Unit- – #02
- Summary of episode 2
KONNICHIWA! Emi again.
In this review, I would like to talk about the highlights of episode 2 of ACTIVERAID -Special Public Security Fifth Division Third Mobile Assault Eighth Unit- .
Summary of Episode 2
Asami continues her mission to spy on Unit 8, and Rin continues to take care of the post crime scenes. Though, unfortunately Koukikyouiku academy, where Rin’s sister goes to, is under attack by a rebellious Willwear and Unit 8 has to take control of it. Asami takes off with her unadjusted Willwear which causes unpredictable events later in the episode.
1st Highlight The appearance of the Asami’s new Willwear!
Asami’s Willwear is a very feminine Willwear with white as the base color and purple as the main color. Many different parts are attached to the its waist and head. It also has a sharper image compared to Kurosaki’s Willwear. Asami’s Willwear has a different form than the others do. It is in feminine colors which somehow make me think of Haman Karn’s mobile suit ‘QUBELEY’ in Gundam. (It might only be me)
2nd Highlight Asami and Unit 8 face each other
In this episode, Rin’s younger sister from Koukikyouiku academy is taken as a hostage. How Asami is going to handle her first case is the main theme of the episode.
Asami takes off with her Willwear confidently without realizing her Willwear is unadjusted and panicks. She ends up destroying a building that is not related to the case. Later on, she is very upset of herself and Rin comforts her and opens Asami’s heart a tiny bit. I really envy people with bosses that are open-minded and yell at their subordinates gently!
3rd Highlight The movements of the dark organisation, LOGOS.
Well, I think the organisation behind this incident is LOGOS, a mysterious organisation. What sort of organisation is LOGOS and what are they planning? Nothing is clear yet but I think LOGOS will definitely stand in the way of Unit 8 in the future episodes!
