You Can’t Run, You Can’t Hide – Fushi, Kansatsusha
Fushi is all but ready to turn into a piece of fruit and just devoid himself of emotion. He has lost someone who was like a brother to him, someone like a mother, and his creator, Kansatsusha, who is a bit callous, is of no help. He won’t let Fushi run, hide, or have peace. Rather, he pushes him to keep moving forward despite all the pain Fushi is in and doesn’t offer anything in the way of condolence.
Let’s Go On An Adventure – Pioran, Fushi
Talking to his creator gets him nowhere, but with picking up a scene, Fushi runs and discovers Pioran, who wants to join him on his journey. This isn’t something Fushi wants since, with fear of the Nokkers taking away those he loves and the collateral damage they cause, he doesn’t want this responsibility. However, Pioran isn’t dissuaded and is quite adamant, so she joins him, and after some time, he once more is used to the two of them traveling together.
Also, as a bonus, she helps him remember March, at least in bits and pieces.
Not All Have Good Intentions – Fushi, Pioran
One of Pioran’s ideas, so that Fushi can get stronger and experience a notable amount of stimulation, is the both of them going to the island of Sarlnine, an animals paradise. There Fushi can get all the stimulation he wants and needs to combat and defeat the Nokkers.
However, upon getting on a ship that is supposed to take them there, they get redirected, kidnapped, and imprisoned. But with Fushi losing the branding all prisoners get, he is let go. So now, his task is figuring out a way to free Pioran with the help of the people who tricked him.
Things To Note | Question(s) Left Unanswered
Question(s) Left Unanswered
- Considering Yanome seems to be at war or oppressing nearly every village and city, why didn’t we see them attack Takunaha at all? Never mind, why haven’t we’ve seen Hayase, who is hunting Fushi?
New Place, New People
With a group of kids and apparently battling in an arena next for Fushi, this means a whole lot of stimuli for him and a whole bunch of new relationships to watch him develop. And considering the pattern of killing off characters when we get too invested, it should be interesting to see how Fushi bonds with people responsible for getting him into this situation, never mind the viewer forgiving them to potentially crying over them.
