I’ve returned with more backstory into the universe of the Fall 2011 series, Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon. Particularly, backstory of the the main character, Aoi Toori. I’m also glad to see I’m not the only one having trouble coming to grips with what’s going on, I figured out Masazumi’s role is reveal information unknown to the viewer, as it seems she’s the only one on this flying city that doesn’t know about Aoi and Horizon ten years ago.
Nearly ten years to the day, Aoi is preparing for a celebration to commemorate his confession to a Horizon-look-alike, P-01s. Meanwhile, a general sense of excitement is starting to fall on the city, I imagine as soon as we are fully informed, the action will commence (am I the only one who’s noticed that they have yet to engage in actual combat?).
Nearly ten years ago, Aoi is traumatized at the death of Horizon, apparently a very important figure. She died in an accident involving a horse-drawn cart on the Trail of Remorse, where Aoi spends the episode trying to overcome the past.
Maybe the next episode will either complete the backstory, or actually have a fight…either way, it’s sure to be interesting.
Believe or not, but that guy twirling on the lamp-post…is, indeed, the hero of the story…
Until next time,
