Pocoa’s Quest for Love

To Your Eternity Season 2 Episode 14 was good. But, it wasn’t good because of Pocoa. As much as I liked following Eko around the city in Episode 13, I didn’t like following Pocoa. And the reason for that is pretty simple — I don’t like Pocoa.

Pocoa could be a cute character. However, she has one major character flaw. And I’m not talking about the fact that she’s rude. I’m talking about her tendency to talk “like a cat.” She adds “nya” to a bunch of her words, which is the same as if she was meowing all the time.

Catgirls are neat. I like Nekopara as much as anyone else. But, what I don’t like are girls who act and speak like cats. This is exactly why Kokoro was my least favorite character in Do It Yourself!! last season. It’s annoying.

My dislike of Pocoa isn’t the only reason I wasn’t very interested in following her around. By following Eko around, we got to experience the city from a new perspective. I enjoyed seeing how she interacted with this place foreign to her. With Pocoa, we don’t get anything like that.

Pocoa isn’t really exploring the city. She’s looking for people to entertain her. She wants to play with Fushi, she wants to flirt with Kai, and she wants Messar to find her a boyfriend. The only good thing to come of this was Kai shooting her down while being oblivious.

It didn’t seem like he understood that Pocoa was hitting on him. Considering he grew up in the church, this may have been the first time he experienced that. And while I understand that Kai is a young, good-looking guy, he has no teeth. Sorry, but I can’t agree with Pocoa’s choice in men.

The Black One’s Plan

Before the battle against the Nokkers, Bon wants to make sure his “immortals” are on the same page. He wants them to know what they’re signing up for and who’s pulling the strings. So, with Fushi unconscious, he introduces them to the Black One.

It turns out that Bon could see the Black One the entire time. There was one moment earlier in the season when he clearly saw and spoke to the Black One. But, I was under the impression that was a one-time thing. That’s not the case.

So, what did we learn from this conversation? First, the Black One could probably stop the war before it even begins. But, he chooses not to because it’s part of Fushi’s growth. Fushi grows through the people he interacts with dying. He doesn’t want to do anything to impede Fushi’s growth.

The next thing we learned is what the Black One’s plan for Fushi is. As we know, he wants Fushi to travel the world and “collect” everything he encounters. But, why does he want Fushi to do that? It turns out, he’s prepping Fushi to take over his own role.

We don’t know if the Black One doesn’t have much time left or if he plans to retire. However, we know that the reason he created Fushi was to serve as a replacement for himself. And that makes the fact that he and Fushi are opposites all the more interesting.

The Black One is associated with black, obviously. On the other hand, Fushi is associated with white. Also, we can see how Fushi is far more emotional than the Black One. Is the Black One expecting him to lose those emotions as he matures? Is he fine with Fushi being so different?

March the Immortal

The stuff with the Black One is pretty important. But, what seems even more important is that March is back. At the end of Episode 14, we see March come back to life. And now that this has happened twice, we can point to how it happened.

For starters, we know that March’s spirit has stuck around Fushi ever since she died. As far as I understand it, only those who haven’t moved on to the afterlife can revive. So, for example, since we haven’t seen Parona’s ghost around, we can assume she can’t come back.

That’s only the first condition, though. Next, there needs to be a vessel for the spirit to enter. And, again, we can infer that it has to be the body of the spirit. I’m assuming that March’s spirit wouldn’t be able to inhabit Rean’s body. It has to be March’s body.

And, the final condition appears to be that the body has to be separate from Fushi. When the princess came back to life earlier in the season, it was only after Fushi cut her body from his own. And here, we see that March comes back to life after her body separates from the rest of Fushi.

What makes this final condition so interesting, though, is that Bon figured it out. He intentionally separated March’s body from the rest of Fushi. And he did so while making it appear he only accidentally separated her crab plush.

There could be 2 reasons for why Bon separated the crab plush from Fushi. The obvious one is that he could visually trick Fushi with some sleight of hand. And it could also be that Fushi felt something get severed and assumed it was only the plush. It works both ways.
