Wow. Its a pretty huge pile of new information all at once.. I'm still trying to comprehend it all so please forgive me if i miss a detail :D (i had to switch my crunchyroll to english to get some of the names and quotes right so its kinda like having to watch the episode twice lol)


At first we have this dream that zorome 666 is talking about. Surrounded by darkness with a growing but still distant bright light and him tearing up/screaming everytime he has these dreams.

Then we see the usual fight scene but with the whole team being more coordinated. Except zorome of course. He rushes in to steal the kill. Like a real teammate does as you sure know :D

At that point it is that we see these guys in the weird costumes or uniforms talking about the team again. Mentioning how their relationship is pretty unique from all the teams they had before and that their capabilities could be far better than they anticipated. But one of em also mentions how this can be a risk because "the future they at APE exalt is one of calmness and uniformity". We can definetly see how all these "high ranked officials" as i'd call them now dont quita always agree to each other.

Now onto the "next stage" they say? Bringing 002 to this "Grand Crevasse" area being their goal then.

Of course now they will recieve an award for their good teamwork and skills on the battlefield. The guy mentioning the award also talks about that how they grow up and live in a way that is that of a "bygone era". I'll come to my idea for that later on.

zorome and miku in the background arguing. And a sad 002. :O Must cheer her up.. But whats on her mind tho? The "tests" that Nana talked about? It feels like it might be about something else even.

Zorome in uniform is exactly me when i got my first suit :D

Getting the award at the plantation parliament must be a great honor for them of course. But to me it feels a little strange.

The way their cities are built and managed reminds me a lot of communism. Dont get me wrong i dont want htis to be political and please correct me if im wrong. But they all look the same. No individuality. Even masks over their faces to hide eye and haircolor. And worst of all: No names. The most interesting part to me and maybe even to you is when zorome does his shinanigans and loses the rest of the group when taking this elevator and landing in this womans "home"

The people in this plantation.. Their way of life is so sterile and free from feelings or even words.We see the "partner" of the woman laying in this chamber that stimulates his feelings. (a bit too good if you saw his face) Maybe they get even so old that their brains cant even handle verbal conversations anymore. Not even the bacteria that are normal to us in everyday life, could kill them.

Then it hit me. It hit me as hard as i hit the floor when tripping on a cosplayers costume on the convention today. Lol.
Zorome mentions how this woman is in some weird way familiar to him. He even cries unintentionaly. She gesturing towards him while he talks is just another sign that I THINK: she may either be his mom (similar eyes) OR the team consists of the same clones everytime they get trained for the battlefield and she was one of em. Maybe Kokoro? But thats pretty far fetched from me.


OK! That enough from me here. Let me know your thoughts down below!!
and @Sneaki-chan.. how was my forum opener ? Too long, too short, or too many mistakes in the engrish lol.


Random thought of the day: I have the same Bloodtype as Zorome 666. :D

Yoo very nice Intro @Komodo! Correct Товарищ! This kind of is like the Grand Soviet Union .

where you are to do your good deed and be a good Товарищ and be proud that you have that chance to die for the system. your elders and your plantation!

And no complaining! You will not laugh or cry and you will be serious and without feeling. BUT the only feeling you shall feel is the pride of your plantation and if your duties!

(hope i said this right lol )

For this ... this one hit right home to what i always could see and felt would happen..... the veil is lifting and being shown how it truly is and ZeroTwo knows just how deep and hard this gets... the evils underneath it all. ... i told you this shit would be getting very deep it is starting to show more.

These people... if you can call them people anymore are too far into this mind control.... they don't even question what it is to "live and be happy" they don't even speak to each other and i don't feel it is only because this "Pair" was older...

For me ... when this lady said "oh well we don't speak to each other or meddle in each others affairs so that we can live a happy life how we wish.." and how the hell has that worked out so far? you live in a unbalanced world where there is only technology all around no balance to nature... you can't even get a change of scenery if you wanted.... all you have to look forward to is is that damned machine there that makes you "happy" in a sense... but that old man hogs it all the time i bet he lives in the damn thing lol.

And you can't even leave ... i bet the real air outside would kill you soon as you hit it...

and looks like they have these heart looking pumps on their chest like this device... is this what "powers" them and nourishes their bodies? aah yeah that was it ....you only had food left to enjoy and you can't even have that.... so what is this life? you don't even have the luxury to think or contemplate outside of what APE taught you. ... ( that is to say this in regards to some who feel yeah if your in advanced state of being and technology then you would be more in your intellectual abilities than worrying about anything else ) well NOT if your so controlled that you can't even have a personal thought ....

and then what kind of life is that...

@Komodo yeah i had the thought too that she could have been a clone "mother" to him or maybe they all are clones.... really looking that way .. maybe she birthed him? i doubt that though with how this series is looking to be. .

The other thing is how the "guards "or whoever treat them all... like they are nothing and even have pity for them. but really all of them do i would say ... except maybe Nana but even then it could be more a act or from her own feelings to help but still understands they have their own duties. though that is more likely to be she is as into this whole system as the others.

Zero Two also did not like these tests.... they are something i feel that is not all that nice for her and she knows well the inner depths of this system... but she won't say more yet. look at how she is treated by them... it is not good people. look at this all... this is only going to show more. also at the end with Zerotwos fangs enlarging... it confirmed what i felt before as these tests... and talking about taking her to labs to be modified. remember in the beginning when the elders was speaking?

Partly it has to do with her body structure and her shifts in form... that headband she wears "limits" it though i feel it can only do so much and shes needing further tests or something else..

we are going to see some hard truths soon guys...


I still stand by what i said before about her and Hiro working towards dismantling this all and maybe a rebellion with the others.... maybe... but i know Zerotwo won't take much more of this shit. and i know shes holding out her true feelings.



though its all theories


calmness and uniformity.. yeah that is really what we need right... nahh Zerotwo is going to destroy this and throw it in their faces with her "DARLING" GO ZeroTwo!!!!!!!

WE love you!

Something Else... hmmm they keep saying this is interesting because this team is Experimental and yet they are not "perfect" (by apes standards) yet these flaws they see in them help them in their battles.. I just hope they don't try anything more with Zerotwo... because i know they beenz meanz to her Shame on you! You leave her alone! ( and i stand by saying that... we have yet to see the extent of her "abuse" just something i always felt from her.) yeah and now i think about it Nana mentioned something with Hiro right by her about how they had hoped she would have been more Obedient when a certain someone was her partner now ... could they at some point try to pressure Hiro into swaying ZeroTwos feelings? hmmm very interesting right?


Zerotwo... you was always right girl.... so sorry you was in all this so deep .. THAT place is dead... and i could never exist in a future like that,

Just had another thought... how at the start of this EP and definitely at the end it sounds like Zorome is speaking from the future reflecting on this... maybe he is much later ? and this woman said it was out of the question to be an adult to live there... but she got cut off by the people at her door coming. and then when they came i knew what would happen, that she would be "debriefed" about what she did and her contact with him, as APE does not want anyone getting ideas or having contact with the Parasites. and particularity i feel from this group... as Ape did something different when they was planning this test run, they let them grow and developed how children did in the past and have feelings and though they don't know everything "YET" but they wanted to see how he other groups failed... the other team of parasites from what i remember act more like the adults... just not at all like this group here.... Ape wants to limit knowledge and have it in need to know basis. an they will do anything to stop something happening and them finding out the truths of their origins and what happened before they were "born".

Anyway i will stop for now as this post is getting so long and i want to see what others have to say

Thank you for the space to write here! We love the Group here Sneaki and Bankshot!

Lunis out.. :P


Edit ..Futoshiiiii man come on.... all you think about is damn food? bruhhh please this joke is gettin old right? haha yeah we know the big boned one is gonna care alot about food all the time lol hurhurr... but i still enjoy your character and when you say it

Ok after watching it again i have to say there is something to that woman... she KNOWS Korome too well... and i know no one of the adults knows them really that well... i doubt they think of them much... just being honest because they live their own secluded lives and the only time the parasites ever get mentioned is when they have some "rally" and even then the adults mostly would not care to know their codes...

The only ones in the know would mostly be the caretaker guards that you have seen before that know of them and function to find missing parasites or something, as was the case when Hiro was absent at the start of this show and the one team that was taking Zero two back with them but failed...

She does feel to me like his mom.. and what and how she says things and says i could never protect you and you children are the ones who are protecting all us adults. ... and i know a child knows who his mother is... and vice versa... there is nothing stronger of a connection usually.... but as this society is there are no attachments and she won't tell him ever who she is to him. .. and what he is to her... as she won't want these feelings for him as her child.

And... on her computer console she was able to bring up his "profile" like she knows how and tell them she was sure it was him.... then she got debriefed and interrogated.

Ape and these Masked Elders have done something to these people.. somethings really bad here. and we are going to find out Parasites!

Though i do also see something else.... what if they are infected with something like modified by Ape?
Clones maybe... that is the answer. i just know something very heavy will be hitting us all soon .... so prepare for that shocking moment!

These are only theories... :)

But i do know something is not all "normal" about the children. and i just noticed this today abut how the elders all are wearing Ape masks of different types .... lol idk if anyone seen that too i was not sure it was real until i seen other people noticed too.


And i did see one particular theory around ... that the children or past ones could have transformed into KLax like beings or even are part of something like it... idk but i could see this too but im holding off on that one for now. all i know for sure is something is different ... very with Hiro and Zerotwo and these children .. but mainly Hiro and Zerotwo.

Now soon would be a good time for ZeroTwo to show us some stuff . i just hope this all won't turn into a true tragedy... :O

I'd like to point out some things I picked up in this episode.

For starters the bit with Zorome and his possible mother is too juicy to go into without knowing more details about the environment and the people that are in the plantation. The elders look different from the parasites which makes me wonder if it was just artistically different or maybe there for sure is a genetic difference between the elders and the children. Seeing how disconnected the elders are with emotions and love and those same sexual feelings are what makes the mechas operate it could be that something about the parasites is genetically different evolved/devolved from the normal population

But that isn't as important as this juicy shot from the beginning. It only goes by for a second so it's a little hard to miss but given that in this episode Zero 2 as due for a "check up" and by not going to this check up her fans appear to be growing I think it's safe to say that Zero 2s time is almost up. Her transformation into a red skinned kalaxor hybrid is imminent and she is purposely avoiding reverting back or she knows that she can't revert back and is saddened about it. Whatever her plans are the Papa has already decided where she will be going soon. I just hope she isn't a sacrifice or something sinister.

Hi BuyingGf yeah.. i really don't want more pain for Zerotwo but she can handle it i know shes strong! and Hiro will be with her.. I also feel this plan with papa is sort of some kind of evil. Great Pic btw and capture!

At the end of Ep10 did she seem a bit worried or self-conscious of what is happening to her? i felt she was too along with her being unusually quiet this Ep... though she has been this way before it is different... shes not all bad like i have heard people talk i really see her as more abused than anything.. you tell me how someone who has been treated as a weapon and is not all human... who has been isolated and has had heartbreak after heartbreak i feel though... how should she act or feel ?shes not really someone who wanted any of this.

Some could say she is sociopathic but i don't see that really as so much as her stating the truth and not being sucking into the false natures this place likes to portray.
And her joy is genuine enough... i don't see it as all fake.. though at times yeah it could have been as i have seen before but after while she really was opening up. she is not at all how people think... shes not monster. she is also a person and just like any other girl!

Whatever happens i know Hiro will be by her side.. he can't leave her. and even the rest of the group would be willing to help.. even if at first they are shocked. but... i can see also it going another way and she getting treated worse than she has and being promoted as some kind of evil and then everyone else other than the main group will try to take her out but papa has something else he has planned.

There can't be another reason why he said it was the group who would deliver Zerotwo safely there to that location... and i keep going back to that snowy place that is shown in the first Ep and in the opening... they keep showing it and i feel that is part of where Hiro shall see Zerotwo.. but maybe. and this place had this strangely beautiful snowy tree thing with puffy balls on it.

During that opening sequence with the music we see Zero-Two and Hiro walking together then showing this scene of the red hand in a black tattered leave much like when when saw ZeroTwo in the First Ep .... surrounded by Klax and was near this cave and had the strange tree there. I so want to know what this place is as it is beautiful

And that pic you posted her Buyinggf i know it is Hiros hand holding ZeroTwos it has to be, look at what they are telling us by having that scene right after showing Zero-and Hiro walking together ..... no one else could be the Red-oni hand but her and i doubt anyone else is gonna be that close to her to hold her hand like that as they were shown repeatedly doing in the Seres. it is the exact same way as before!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Seriously though we should all be sending our love to ZeroTwo right now... Just don't kill her now... she deserves more,, so much more.

That and if anyone else is mean to her ...i am sure Sneaki, myself and others would be there to stop them so there pbbbtttt
Stupid old papa !
You guys are real monsters!
baka baka!

Now i am bit on edge for this next Ep... man it's hitting hard guys... damn .

i am going to watch again and the whole series.... and think this all over more. thank you Buyinggf for the updates bro

Yeah Lunis it hurts to know that Zero 2 is in for some hurt in the future.

Yeah I wouldn't call her a psycopath either. I think it's quite the opposite I think she actually cares about Hiro and the parasites. It's like she's sad because she knows more things about the sad nature of their existence then they do but she masks those feelings with indifference and coldness. This episode too hasn't helped that mental state, lowkey she's like depressed :(

Which sucks a lot because I mean come on that face is hella adorable, please anime gods keep Dino Aids smiling

I completely agree both you and Lunis on this. Seeing Zero-Two like this weighs pretty hard on my heart (damn that sounded way better in german ) Im pretty sure that it'll be like many have already said´. Hiro is gonna accept her like she is even in a worse state when she might not look that human anymore.

To be honest tho.. i never would have thought that they would give zorome such a deep backstory. In the beginning i thought he was more like the "cliche idiot"-supporting character. But now after the last few episodes i really like the way he develops.

But just as the author said. "All of the team are main characters" :)

As the great BuyingGF once said, "Keep Dino Aids smiling."

Annnd on that note onto the meme review. ZOROME. I'm excited to say that this boy does have feelings other than childish and annoying as fu**. But with all of this, we are going to see a dark turn pretty soon in Darling in the Franxx. And a well-needed one indeed. As much as I love the happy go-anime shows where nothing bad ever really happens, I feel DITF would be able to blindside us all if one of the characters were too suddenly have a huge problem on their hands. Maybe even... Waifu Zero Two?

We all saw her attitude this episode, she seemed to be really down on herself. I'd go as far as to say depressed a little. Not only that but it looked as if she had some anger welled up as well. Obviously towards their government. But that said Zero Two knows a lot that we don't and it's really showing now. Talks of the squad being a "successful test group" and "rewarding them" really had me thinking. What are these tests? Maybe Papa is testing a group of Parasites that actually have some individuality and is hoping to see how long they work out together. Then again I wonder why they would need such information in the first place.

Prediction. Short and sweet. Uh yeah, Zero Two is an example of a successful experiment where they combined the DNA of humans and Klaxosaur to create a hybrid killing machine capable of piloting a FRANXX far better than any normal human. And yeah you saw her teeth? She's slowly turning more into the "Monster" that she is afraid of being.

Spooky stuff. Also, who thought the adult looked like Voldemort? This guy did.


(Isn't it ironic that Hiro gave the mirror to Zero Two as a gift so she can see herself as human and no different than everyone around her, yet she is seeing these changes in herself that really do set her out as different?)

Ok guys going all RED now in support for ZeroTwo

@BuyingGf i won't be in such a great state of being if something super weird and awful happens.. but i don't feel it will mean as much as her death or anyone. though still kind of looking like it's going to change into the real twisted nature of this world.

That is truly what i feel Buyinggf.. she cares so much she has to somehow keep going on for her own mental state and true i know it's killing her!.. and she has to hide that stuff... so i cherish every moment she has with these guys and being so happy. she is really showing us how she is... even with all that has happened and she is still inside this cruel world.

This anime .. is something else.. not one character is bad or not well written. even the ones that are supporting characters and villains.

Hiro and even the others will help her i know it... they have really become her friends. and as we have been seeing she is so supported now and fights well with the others and has so much more openness and acceptance.
May this never end, and i know that it won't .

Everyone has been growing together and yeah was always some disputes and rivalry though everyone wants the best for each other they don't hate anyone really.
And for sure this is not taking the turn of later in the series that it is shown that ZeroTwo really was faking and she is terrible... yeah this not at all how it is going to be. so much against it and why would that happen it's stupid, and plus if she did try acting this role later it would be because she wanted to save everyone and would let herself be seen as bad.

She really my hero but so is Ichigo and the others. Dino Aids WE LOVE You! we wont let you get hurt more!
I just want her to be open more ans so at least Hiro can be there for her and the others even if only Hiro knew at first.
One thing i also have noticed as i have been going back in the series and watching.

The ending song with the scenes of each of them in this city.. that looks nothing like the ones we have seen in the plantations so it could mean it is from the older style cites from before. it could only mean that.... so one day they are going to rebuild or maybe it is like Attack on titan,
They could maybe not know that there is places where not everything was destroyed. idk just something to think about the AoT reference was because everything is so isolated and not much of anyone knows the truth of the world they are in and other places out there.


There is so much we don't know for sure but i still think there is places out there with other people not of the Plantations... maybe other Klax humans.
ZeroTwo will reveal somethings because i feel she will be forced to given the situations and their advancement this can't go on any longer. and i have known she is planning something big... it is not just jokes about her saying "oh let's run away Hiro" "I could get you out of here" she always was planning ways to shut this all down. i think her whole life she has...


@Komodo You said things perfectly no need to think self consciously about this sounds good bro!
"cliche idiot"-supporting character" was what i was not hoping his character would turn out to be... and Mitsuru.... being an ass much more lol.

but i started seeing it was just part of the story and this was all working towards this later. but i did not really know that at the start
Great gif also @Buyingf i love it ... let's work hard to keep her smiling! DO IT FOR HER!!!!

Your pic is also interesting Komodo! Is that the authors writing there? what does it say if you know? Sorry i don't know much of Japanese ... not yet but is this pic from a website from the author? Maybe that is her voice actor lol

"But just as the author said. "All of the team are main characters" :)" Yes i will always remember this Komodo.. This series will forever live on in my heart!

Another thing to say i feel strongly this group loves ZeroTwo also... as they are getting to know her more too.

Nana also is kind of different maybe she does know something more... and Doc Franxx da booteh grabber is not all that bad i feel too... he wants to change things and he has not been wanting the "Old geezers" papa and the others finding out what is his doing here.
he don't seem to like them ? thats what i see anyway.

So he maybe be one ones that want to help. Nana maybe caught up in all this too and not really evil... per say. and Doc Franxx knew her very well before she was caring for the parasites at the garden...
Something is telling me to watch him and her more... He is going to play bigger parts soon and maybe he is not some evil mastermind doctor. Though he does like Bootyyy much!

Just somethings to think about i really want to hear everyones opinion about the Doctor and Nana.... let's give them a chance too.


Glad to read your responses here Buyinggf and Komodo! Let's see what Sneaki has to say too

Lunis out... KEEP ON SMILING ZEROTWO!!!!

Yeah i also really want to see more of the hard truths...

Gods i love strong driven deep series.... and i wanna see ZeroTwo as the Redoni lady! she is so kaaawwiiiiiiiiiiiiommmfffgggggggggg :O


idk i just hope what i said was not stupid lol. just i was wanting to give some thought and chance to the doc and nana... but something deeper is going on... Hell idk i know this series is badass though!

Your prediction is exactly what i felt too... maybe there is more of her? who knows but i am starting to feel maybe she really is all alone and not anyone else is like her.


Edit: Yeah i need to add something else here.... i know it may sound like i been wanting only happy stuff for this series but i really deep down want the more hard hitting stuff too and i know this series will deliver it like no other can... (because each one is unique)
I want some shit so raw to come down.. BAM! and i know the characters can handle it too... hey i like challenges for people and seeing how they get through them , but i still love Zerotwo but i been waiting for this seriously... she can handle it it too. hey we got to move on and be strong too at times and persevere .. own dat shit bruhz n siszas !

I am really into series that is very deep but also has some funny moments or even just a comedic anime/manga at times. as too though i like hard gritty ones or the mix of them or even more series like Boruto/Naruto or Konosuba lol.
but what really drives me is the challenges and dark moments that push people and characters in a series or in life makes them into something of what they thought they could not be or achieve.. often times it is catalyst for seeing their "true" natures and uncovering what they feared to be. or to do..... i must say i like series that are very physiological thrilling. just something i have said before in the Monogatari group on cr.

Just saying i want changes and things to push hard and let these characters grow and do great things and even if is hard or someone dies.. in a series.. not saying that any death will happen here (though i don't know that tbh either) i am still gonna love the hell outta this series

Take it for what it is man... thank you @Sneaki for saying also that .. i have been wanting a blindside.... just to see how the characters deal with it an push through... and what Zerotwo can do.. we all need this sometimes too i hope more will be shown this next Ep...

And yeah Sneaki that scene with the mirror is just another part of why i like this series so much... so many pieces right. so much story there and feeling.... and they keep reaffirming just how close Hiro and Zerotwo are

Lol Korome should have said... mangg if yo don't git yo Voldemort lookin ass outtaa hereeee wtf you in the wrong damn seires! fly yo ass to Harry potta landddddd

@Lunis well said you're right on the plot development for sure. Trigger always pulls good background and setting development. Like in Kill-la-Kill you start with a simple premise then it develops into a complex story and the background gets deeper and deeper. I enjoy the mystery of it and getting pieces of development at a time.

Lol speaking of Dr. Franxx I read a post about how familiar Nana and Dr. Franxx are and especially how familiar he is with that posterior. Dr. Franxx created all mechas including the training one that Hiro was in in the first couple of episode. The training mechas also have a Stimen but it's an artificial posterior not a human being. Essentially Dr. Franxx modeled the first Mechas with Nanas ass, which makes sense considering how familiar they both are with each other




@sneaki, great observation on the mirror I didn't really pick that up first time. Yeah talk about great forshadowing. Hiro gave zero2 a gift to highlight how special she was to him but at the same time that gift highlights how different she is from everyone else and is used to highlight her changes from the norm. Nice

Dr. Franxx created all mechas including the training one that Hiro was in in the first couple of episode. The training mechas also have a Stimen but it's an artificial posterior not a human being. Essentially Dr. Franxx modeled the first Mechas with Nanas ass, which makes sense considering how familiar they both are with each other




@sneaki, great observation on the mirror I didn't really pick that up first time. Yeah talk about great forshadowing. Hiro gave zero2 a gift to highlight how special she was to him but at the same time that gift highlights how different she is from everyone else and is used to highlight her changes from the norm. Nice


That they do @Buyinggf ... i loved Trigger's Kill-La-Kill for it's unique storyline and animation style. i may watch it again this week later... :D
Hey you know where that one post is at about how familiar Nana and Doc Franxx is? is it on cr or another? i will look around too... but is great to compare notes and stuff here.

Dat Posterior is definitely something to be modeled after lol and i thought i seen the similarities between the mechas and dat bootehhhh ya! making hella sense now bruh!
I was not for sure though.. Great post though!

lol that artificial ass when i first seen it in the training mech with Hiro i knew something was up and i loled at it ... a damn fake bootehhhh boiiii! he may have smacked the hell outta dat too , maybe he knew it was Nanas ass too.

Going back to Trigger and their style of writing is something that is always going to my favorite... really it will be more so for me and one the top ones! and combined with A1 it gets better as a mix kind of.
That ass is displayed everywhere all across many plantations bet lol ( hey an artist gotta have inspirations and a muse )

Ok i am going on to find some more posts about Nana and DocFranxx... See you Buyinggf sometime this week if not sooner see you Saturday when it the new EP comes out.
Maybe we can even have that discord group ... one day we can make it happen

Also gotta say WE LOVE YOU ZERO TWO!!!!

(And i must say DocFranxx has perfected his ass grab well over the years.... right cadence and pressure and the way his hand is kneeding that ass in just the right way. yupppp damnnnn bruhh you got it! Mission successful )

I did have to watch that several times that too it's too damn fun. Ddd doc doctorr stop dat! lol

I really hope to see more of the ol Doc soon on the next Ep! we need to see him and also get some answers ..

Sorry for being 3 days late to watch the episode lol. And wow guys, your posts' were a lot to read at one time.

You guys are packed with info, but I just want to touch on something that hasn't been discussed or analyzed yet... and that's the social system behind the plantation.

Upon entering the city, we are shown a large symbolism of how this city's social system is ran. A grand imagery of yellow hexagons that greatly resembles a beehive, specifically a honey beehive.


The similarities are undeniable. And with this to work with, let's talk about how the social system works within' the plantation.

There are 3 types of bees in a honey bee colony. A Queen, Workers, and Drones.
The Queen
Queens are the only members of a colony able to lay fertilized eggs. That's basically it lol.

In the case of DITF, there seems to be multiple "Queens." And if these superiors are the only people able to transfer sperm to other females, that could explain two things.
(1) That's why the population of the city seems so deserted. Or everyone is just staying kept indoors.
(2) This is why squad 13, especially Zorome, keeps calling the leader, "papa."



Workers
Worker honey bees are the largest population within a colony and are entirely female. They are also essential members of honey bee colonies. They forage for pollen and nectar, tend to queens and drones, feed larvae, ventilate the hive, defend the nest and perform other tasks to preserve the survival of the colony.

Although we see majority of males in the city, the male-female birth ratio is generally 50%. So either most of the females remain hidden, or there's something more sinister happening. But that aside, let's talk about how the females in this city's roles are and how similar they are to Worker bees.

(1) They forage of pollen and nectar. Now, skipping over pollen because I don't see any correlation to that in the anime, let's go to nectar. Nectar is a sugar-rich liquid produced by plants. And when Zorome eats these colorful balls, he says, "I-It was super delicious!" And if you're human, which I think most of us are, you would know that we love our sugar. That's why I'm eating an Oreo Candy as I'm writing this lol.



(2) They tend to queens and drones. I'll get to drones later, but they're basically just the males. And if we follow the path that this women is Zorome's mom, then that serves as her tending to her queen because she gave birth to the papa's son. This could be the reason why during the initial welcoming ceremony, they were described as "the chosen ones."
And she tends to drones as well. She watches and takes care of her partner's vulnerable body as he takes his "dose of happiness."



(3) Feed larvae. Larvae are essentially kids before they reach adulthood. And based on this flashback of Zorome when he was young, I think it's a good assumption that this woman was looking after Zorome when he was a child. Kind of like a mother....?


(4) Ventilate the hive. There's an early scene upon meeting the lady without her formal attire where he sprays the room with disinfecting spray. As one of the guards escorting him out said, "This isn't a place infected children like you should enter."


(5) Defend the nest. This is a quick one. I'm sure the society within' were taught to believe that parasites were infected. So she didn't hesitate to immediately call security after confirming that Zorome is a parasite.


Okay, last one
Drones
Drones are male honey bees with only one task; to fertilize new queens

In relation to DITF, this doesn't make any sense. I mean... unless the guys are getting gay with papa? But it seems that the males just follow orders given by papa (the queen) and nothing more. I mean literally... nothing more. During their welcoming, Zorome wanted an honorable handshake because he was so excited, but the guy simply nudged it off because of two reasons.
(1) He was only ordered to welcome the Parasites and nothing more.
(2) They were taught that parasites were infected.



Some final thoughts.
Zero Two called this city "lifeless."

This can be taken literally, as in deserted or no people, which this city's streets seem to be almost always empty. Or, it can be interpreted in a philosophical way. To me, the way Zero Two describes this place as "lifeless" means that everyone has lost their sense of individuality. In a hive system, everyone is essentially working machines for their whole lives. And this could also be the reason as to why she enjoys being around with squad 13 and Hiro.

Everyone in squad 13 is full of life and individuality. Even their FRANXX have their individual uniqueness. Past models of FRANXX, such as what squad 26 used in that big Klaxour fight, were all built the same way to improve teamwork and coordination. Every fight that squad 13 has fought, they were mostly solo kills with little-to-no teamwork.


So what are your thoughts about the quotes and symbolism in this series or episode? I know Komodo brought up about the representation of flowers, but I'm not a florist lol. That's his expertise

HECK. Thats a lot of new intel.. might even be worth its own forum post if theres more info about that in the next ep but damn.. Well spotted man @Aniysis .. well spotted.


The fact that maybe all of the children may be "produced" by one man/woman or a small group of em disturbs me a bit.. i mean .. where does the genetic variety come from? lol

No but seriously thats pretty interesting dude.

Maybe thats why they're so vulnerable to foreign bacteria intefering with their people because that could disturb the whole beehive-like system :O i still remember them saying something along those lines.

Man this connects so well to all the stuff about the flowers.. (◕‿◕✿)

Think about it.. all the stuff about nature and its biology and then this "dead" technological world with nothing to live for.

Woah Aniysis you have covered it all here! each and ever piece we all have been sharing and reviewing is coming together so beautifully and im excited.

For me i think the ones who are "breeding" will get revealed more.... and i think Zoromes mom or that lady knew... like what if it is part hybridization? like not all only natural means of reproduction but some artificial means placed in there too.... like modified children then placed into a female.... or other "body" .. just something i was thinking all along too.? what you all think though.

And you have put up much effort here in this post so congrats! :O it's awesome!
