Damn this right hand is amazing. His species already proved to be highly adaptable, but to be able to nurse its host back to life? Transform itself temporarily into a heart to keep him alive and then gather food to help him recover? He isn’t just a killing hand anymore, he is one who will straight up grandly increases the survival rate of its host. I would gladly give up my right hand for a species like that to live in symbiosis with me. I understand there are some downsides, but the upsides are amazing. At this point it is no wonder Shinichi doesn’t feel like Migi is an enemy anymore. With the length of trouble Migi has put into making him come back to life after his fuck up, Shinichi wouldn’t even be there had it not been for Migi.
Now, with the reaction of Shinichi and how he got psychologically so disturbed he was paralyzed when his mother showed up, Migi might start to realize the importance of relationship in human beings. Shinichi straight up lost his mind when he saw her mother show up. Now Migi is starting to realize that maybe he can’t underestimate the importance of the people Shinichi cares about. This episode, Migi even actually asked Shinichi if it was fine to kill someone. I think we should give Migi a lot more credit, he is ever so slowly becoming ever more “human” what ever that means. He even went ahead and revealed his new weakness to Shinichi, although with everything going on, Migi’s weaknesses becomes Shinichi’s weaknesses too.
Having said all this about Migi and how he is becoming ever more human, the same seems to be true about Shinichi becoming ever more alien. He has become a real super human, every one of his senses have been increase considerably. At first, it was shown with the hearing increase, then he started running really fast, but really not that fast since a school girl in skirt was able to get to him only a few seconds behind. The real impressive part was definitively his jump. That was something beyond what any athlete could ever hope to achieve. It is without doubt that Shinichi is now something else, he is not the one he uses to be…at the very least physically. Now, this is all nice and fantastic, but it does make me wonder if those changes had other effects than just physical one. Having a better hearing is all fun, but what if the way he thinks has changed too? What if ever so slowly, Shinichi is losing his power of compassion and his ability to care and love? Will his moral be affected? Is he overzealous right now because he is human and it is only normal to want revenge on the killer of your mother? Or is he overzealous because the changes had made him more impulse and violent? I’m really curious to find more about this, super power are cool, but there always seem to be a cost associated with them.
Last thing I want to note though, despite how Shinichi is convinced he is currently attacking the killer of his mother, that person certainly didn’t look like a girl to me. Hell, it seems it was really uninterested in Shinichi or anything in that hospital. I think he might jump into either a decoy…or simply a fight he has no reason to undertake.
