Somehow missed this amazing face. Gather round as Kikko and Grandpa Gugsy walk you through Concrete Revolutio episodes 1-7 (Stick around for the Post ED this week!)

In this week’s episode, it is Earth-chan’s time to shine. The little Satellite that could do no wrong hit on three of the oldest Superhero tropes of all time: she stops a robbery, saves a falling animal from a tree and helps old people cross the street. While she has her own clear definition of what’s right and just and what isn’t, many other superheroes clearly live more in the grey areas. Particularly with the other major character introduced this episode: Judas. After Earth-chan had reformed him to be a good superhero, he eventually ended up in an evil organization once again. That scene in the cafe was very informative. Superheroes are not all behind the Bureau and their intentions, and not all of them show themselves as heroes to the general public like Earth-chan does. Ultimately, it’s up to Kikko and Judas to help Earth-chan understand lying for the greater good, and the grey areas of Justice. The dream Earth-chan has with what seems to be family, what was that? Maybe a past life before she became the satellite superhero? In other news, I loved that supid helmet and telephone that Kikko brought all the way to space. It was just so goofy. Finally, it wouldn’t be a true Concrete episode if we didn’t have a time skip, would it? What happened to Earth-chan in the end that Scarf Jiro, Judas and the male/female android Megasshin had to save? We’ll have to wait and see how these various threads get tied up.
