back, finally, with some answers to the Fall 2011 series that has confounded me until now, Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon. At long last, we have a feasible explanation of what’s going on…so let’s break it down.
The Lord of Mikawa, very much aware of the dismal state the world is in and the bleak future it has in store, has created a grand-sum game, with epochal war awaiting as the punishment for failure. He is specifically addressing the graduates, those who are about enter into a world with no hope. He also reveals that he is the reason for the death of Horizon Ariadust, one decade earlier. All this plays into his gambit to save the world from it’s own annihilation.
10 years prior, Horizon was killed by horse-drawn carriage, and her soul was used to craft nine “Armor of Deadly Sins”, each spread amongst the nations, except for one…Horizon’s final soul-part was instilled in an automated doll, P-01s. Now, these Armors are the key to avoiding Armageddon. But, the biggest conflict lies in the fact that the Armors are distributed amongst the nations, almost guaranteeing a war over the Armors.
Now, the Lord of MIkawa has rigged the city’s generators to collect ether, producing the tower of light that now rises over its walls. The nations are now beginning their search for the Armors, which results in Horizon being taken into custody. As if things couldn’t get worse, the generators have reach capacity and obliterated the city. Now, ordained as the new leader, Horizon is also charged with its destruction, and sentenced to death…
The series finally picks up some stinking background information, and now I’m ecstatic for the next episode. What’ll happen to Horizon? What else did the Lord of Mikawa have in store (you know there’s more to come, you just know it)? And what’ll Toori do now that Horizon is basically on everyone’s most wanted list?
Until next time,
