I wouldn't be surprised to see Hajime get beat up a little, but I don't think that will affect her worldview at all. In my mind, she's just like Gon from Hunter x Hunter, able to take any set back and spin it in the most positive way possible. If anything, getting beat up would be a way for her to continue to woo people to her worldview.

Honestly I expect it to get a lot more of a mixed reaction than it has. It's neither your normal straightforward action piece nor your dark pseudo-philosophical mess.

Also, and why I replied... honestly that's part of what I loved. As unrealistic as she is in some ways, Hajime starts off really annoying and worthless and then shows the viewer her way... which makes it more effective.

At episode 2, I hated the main character and wasn't sure I could continue with the show. At episode 6 it's far and away my favorite show of the season (the only one that comes close is 'eccentric family'). For somebody who's actually really cynical about anime, even as they watch it, that's pretty amazing.

Like the anime, it has a different vibe to it in my opinion.

Hajime has been a treat. For a character that, by every rights, I should hate, I can't help but like her. Like so much in this show, she really isn't what she seems. And that's one of the main reasons why I keep tuning in each week: what is she going to do next? In fact, the show plays with your expectations regarding all the characters. That's rather fun and refreshing, imo.

Anyway, right now I'm hoping OD isn't going meet a bad end.

Wtf .jpg

Hajime is too adorable though when she was talking to Katze showing no fear at all. Maybe it's because she can't see him but I doubt that would be different anyways. On the other hand, poor Rui....

I'm kind of impressed that they could manage to make an episode of this show so brutal, considering how goofy everything about the show is. It really is a unique sort of show. I'm glad I didn't drop it after the first episode that would have been no good.

Hajime, in my opinion, is majorly flagging for an ass-kicking or near-death experience.

Her "thing" is entertaining in general but I'm not going to lie that her lack of seriousness is somewhat of an irritant in a situation where people are going to possibly die.

You may be right if this were another anime, but I think the show is making a point that Hajime knows exactly what she's doing. I have a hard time thinking she'll lose at the end of the day.

And also, you can tell from their exchange that Hajime is the villain's favorite of the Gatchaman, or that she's the only one who knows how to properly deal with Katze.

I think in the universe of Gatchaman Crowds she can do no wrong, even though I agree with you otherwise.

I'm not saying that she'll die or won't be the secret key to victory. She's basically the main protagonist and obviously so for a reason.

I'm saying that I see her getting a perspective change at some point in the show in the form of an ass-whip. Not something that will change her personality or make her a different character, but rarely ever do main characters just remain static from episode 1 to the end. There has to be room for growth somewhere.

Whether she knows what she's doing or not still doesn't change the fact that she irritatingly lacks a sense of urgency.
