Captain Earth: Episode 20-22 Review

The final confrontation is at hand for Captain Earth. There were a few surprises here and there to be had, but the series is still wrapping things up for the most part, and there were some resolutions that seemed to be surprisingly rushed that could have been spread out more evenly across episodes.

The story is moving quickly to the final battle in Captain Earth. The perpetually arrogant kiltgang, now thoroughly frustrated by humanity’s fierce resistance, conspire to launch an all-out offensive to take the planet once and for all.

Love is in the air, and there certainly is plenty to go around in this next installment of Captain Earth. The scenes have only become more poetic and stimulating in this tale of interstellar love and war recently, and I still feel surprised at how well this anime has held my interest thus far for a genre I rarely tread into.

The hunt for the remaining designer children intensifies in these episodes, while the story’s tone takes an even darker, more cynical turn and ups the ante in terms of suspense. The last “unturned” children -young, innocent Setsuna and world-weary Baku - suffer equally with tragic backstories all their own, made all the more gut-wrenching by the prospect of them being forcefully conscripted into the ranks of the planet-consuming Kiltgang force.

There is a lot riding on this latest batch of episodes of Captain Earth, now that the second act is in mid-arc. The antagonists, having suffered major defeat by the newly-minted Midsummer’s Knights team led by “Captain Earth” Daichi, now seek to increase their own ranks by awakening more Kiltgang. Each episode introduces a new antagonist, as well as new challenges that put the heroes to the test and allow their individual skills to shine.

The second act of Captain Earth has finally arrived. Although the major plot points are finally coming into focus in these latest episodes (i.e. lines between heroes and villains clearly drawn, backstories and explanations wrapped up, relationships established, etc.), it may be too little too late for the casual viewers who most likely lost interest already.

Captain Earth: Episode 02-04 Review

I would have expected a series about a gigantic planetary defender to promise a plethora of gut-wrenching space opera and/or exhilarating metal-on-metal battles four episodes in. What I got instead was snail-paced exposition, more enigmatic political intrigue, and less indication of when (or even if) that alleged Earth-threatening interstellar war was ever going to get underway.

Spring is here, and with a new season of anime comes new a opportunity for growth in the industry. The mecha genre has always been in the periphery of my circles of interest, even while acknowledging its essential contribution to the medium as it exists today.
