Another great episode from this amazing anime has arrived. So far, I can say that there hasn’t been a single Heavenly Delusion episode that has left me bored or made me think about leaving it halfway through, and it definitely deserves to be one of the trending anime this season. I love the feeling this series gives of having no idea where the plot could go. Its unpredictability is one of its strong points in my opinion.
I can never get enough of Maru’s action scenes. The animation is amazing and fluid, and it is really appealing and entertaining. Also, it’s always great to see mean people get their ass kicked. I was hoping for something more shocking out of his backstory, but it seems that he was just another kid who grew up in the post-apocalyptic world. But Miruka is a mysterious character as of now, I hope we hear more about her.
It has been great to see Maru and Kiruko’s friendship develop. To see them going from “I am only Maru’s bodyguard and my job is to take him to this place”, to being scared because Kiruko couldn’t find Maru in the room. But the boy was just in the room next door looking through some adult magazines, which led to a really funny and comedy-relief scene.
At the facility, the footprint on the nursery wall has been found. The fact that the doctor didn’t tell anyone about his finding makes him a little bit suspicious to my eyes. This place still has a lot of story left to be told, and the fact that Tarao’s death has been the second one they had, with the first one being of a girl named Asuka that killed herself because “she was boring into a body that could not bear its own mind” only raises more questions. But one thing I am sure of, these kids have been experimented on since birth, maybe their bodies are even being used to transfer other people’s brains into, just like Kiruko.
The man that found Maru and Kiruko knows some things that we for sure don’t. Apparently, transplanting a part of a man-eater to a human could make them powerful and even immortal? I think the man is their biggest clue to finding Heaven, and I am almost sure that one of the experiments done on the kids there is exactly this one, and they are human and man-eater hybrids, which would explain why they have superpowers – but not immortality, so far. I think this was one of the biggest keys for Kiruko and Maru to find Heaven, and perhaps the Doctor.
