Xam’d: Lost Memories 17
We hear the lecture from Episode 12 on regarding the enemy again. This time it has a different tone and setting, but the same content. The lecturer complains about ambiguousness of the enemies of present day that don’t “stir his heart”, as we see Akiyuki delivering death notifications. The eye that accompanies Akiyuki must have separated from him just like that dark spirit did in Episode 12. In a poignant scene we see Akiyuki and the flying eye facing each other. This lecture is not about the external enemy, this lecture is about the enemy within us that manifests in greed, hatred, fear, and leads us to wage wars. This was illustrated very well in the scene from Episode 14 where a soldier shoots at transformed Akiyuki.
