This show really is something of its own when it comes to the story pace. The show really take its sweet time to get into real issues and to discover the world and I feel like the show is pretty much all about that, discovering the world through the innocent eyes of Ai. I mean we are already 2 episodes into the Ostrus arc and nothing really happened yet. Ai made some friends, we learned a lot about how a child can be brought up into this world through witchcraft and who was the princess of the land of the dead. Now while that is a lot of discoveries and new things, it really doesn’t come off as having much effect on anything. To be honest I still don’t know exactly what the show is all about other than exploring the universe, it just seems like while Ai clearly have a goal, it is nothing that can be easily defined for now.
It really came to no surprised that the town of the dead immigration policies are a bit morbid, but I don’t think there is anything wrong with it either. If people decides by themselves that they want to end their life to rest in peace in a heaven for the dead, it is their own choice. No one actually forced them to kill themselves, they are the one who came there to do so. Yes it must be quite the choice to renounce your life for something like this, but at least it is a choice that you made and not something that was imposed upon you. I really see no evil in the immigration policy of the country, it seems fair enough. Now, would I personally end my life to live with the dead? Probably not, simply because I’d feel like I would much rather die and then join them than simply calling my life forfeit, but I would still not hate anyone who decided to make that choice. I think that if there is one person who should have the right to decide on their life, it is the one who is living it. If those 105 people travelled so far on the brink of starvation to get killed, well I’m pretty sure they have already made their choice and that there is no point in telling them what they should and shouldn’t do.
I’m kind of curious what will happen next episode as I have a feeling that we will get to finally see Ostrus’ darker side and it might very well be the last episode that we spend in that city, I’m curious as to what the future holds for the little Ai so I want to know where they will be going next in their adventure in hope to finally understand where that adventure will take them.
