Really glad I gave this series another chance. I'd like to see more backstory into how our society finally fell into this cycle of control and that children are not classed as humans till the end of their teenage years.

I still find some things hard to grasp, i.e. what exactly are the mole rats, why is it that no-one has had the nerve to stand up to this society or how they've had their memories altered and only now noticing it.

If you watched the most recent episode its slightly explained, only group 1 ever notice that their memories have changed because they were given free thought. Everyone else is terrified of the barrier and all that kind of stuff.

As for the molerats, they're just another race I guess

Death of shame and bonobo love are genetically engineered traits which can be repressed through normal reproductive processes, DNA swapping during fertilization. I am surprised that they don't use fully artificial insemination for all pregnancies to control it better but...

They really don't go into too many details about the adults until the latest episode. saki apparently had siblings but were all terminated for unexplained reasons until she was the only child that wasn't targeted.

Society appears to have firm limits on the use of technology. I think Saki's parents talked about limits imposed on the use of electricity in one of the first episodes. There is something else

To your spoiler I suppose it stands to reason that ogres could also do the reverse to become ogres, hmm...

My logic bomb is that sending an impure cat out to kill someone should also cause the death of shame but I suppose it would be temporary while the cat has no such problem.

I believe they were 'disposed' of because they had weak control over their powers thus were in danger of falling into the same position as
. This 'disposing' of people is what has caused a philosophical rift within me

Unfortunately there is not wikia at least, not heavily filled in, with a lot of explanation on everything.

So glad this show is back. Things are really getting serious now.

Some interesting theories posted. I'm just going to mull things over for now, but I wonder

Yea, but that still doesnt explain why you see no adults acting like that. Is it just a temporary thing to control them whilst they're kids?


For reproduction it makes no sense as adults. The entire population of Japan is 50000-60000 people! They kill all the ogres and demons so there aren't many people left. They need to keep having kids until they get goldilocks kids with control, good control.


I know but then it doesnt make sense why they suddenly go from not being able to say no to having logical 'I need babies' purely through a few years.


Maybe it's due to the psychological manipulation they go through growing up. After all it was said earlier on that they were genetically induced(I think) to behave like the bonobos to have a more carefree and loving community. Possibly, after they reach adulthood, nearly all the mental manipulation stops which is why Saki's parents know all the details of what's going on behind the scenes. What I'm saying is that the kids are being brainwashed, in a way, into the free love thing to promote harmony but once they are adults they end up expressing their natural sexuality. This obviously makes sense as they have a very low population. In the grand scheme of things, if people are the problem, then just brainwash everybody gay and let the population die out. Problem solved.
