To Your Eternity Season 2 Episode 3

Kahaku Is Down Bad

To Your Eternity Season 2 Episode 3 did exactly what I thought it was going to do. At the end of my review of Episode 2, I brought up the idea of Kahaku falling in love with one of Fushi’s female forms. And, that’s what happened.

Kahaku is the first male successor of Hayase’s will. All the female successors wanted to bear Fushi’s children, so I figured Kahaku would too. But, Kahaku’s a guy. So, would he be the first gay character of the series? Or would he fall for one of Fushi’s female forms? It turns out, the latter is the case.

And, of course, the female form Kahaku falls for is Parona. I don’t blame him at all. Parona is easily the most attractive form Fushi has. I mean, the other options are March, Rean, Tonari, and Pioran.

Obviously, March is a small child, so we can discount her right away. Rean is my next pick after Parona. But, while Rean’s cute, she doesn’t have the sex appeal Parona has. Tonari isn’t my type — I prefer long hair — and she’s a bit old in her 50s. And if Tonari’s a bit old, Pioran is way too old.

Young Pioran was cute, though.

Anyway, the thing about Kahaku falling for Parona is that it’s physical attraction. He wasn’t attracted to Rean, so I’m going to say that his attraction to Parona is due to her looks. That’s to say, he’s not attracted to her because of Hayase’s will.

Now, I could be wrong about that. But, all the other successors seemed to have an innate attraction to Fushi. And as Kahaku tells us, he’s only considered the successor because he has no female sibling. He’s a stand-in; not a true successor.

Prince Bonchien Nicoli la Tasty Peach Uralis

The new character we meet in Episode 3 is Prince Bonchien Nicoli la Tasty Peach Uralis. He’s a prince of the Uralis Kingdom. But, despite being the king’s oldest son, he’s not the crown prince.

It seems that the king disapproves of Bon-sama’s lifestyle. He’s very flamboyant. In the same episode we learned Kahaku isn’t the first gay character, we may have met someone who is. We don’t know if that’s actually the case for Bon-sama. But, he reminds me a lot of another Bon, Bon Clay from One Piece.

Bon-sama is interesting because I think there’s more to how he acts than meets the eye. He acts like a teenage girl, sure. But, he also acts like someone having a mental break. In the middle of sentences, he’ll pause to say something to someone who isn’t there.

It’s like Bon has all these imaginary friends who interrupt him while he’s speaking. And he feels compelled to respond to them immediately. However, I don’t think we should discount this as him being crazy. My guess is that he really is talking to people who we can’t see.

At the end of the episode, Bon-sama tells Fushi to believe in him and his vision for the future of the world. And the preview for the next episode says “What do the prince’s fearless eyes see?” So, what if he can see things others can’t that give him hope for the future?

What if the people he can see and talk to are spirits of some kind? If Fushi inherits Bon-sama’s form, will he be able to talk to them as well? Could he talk to all his dead friends again? That would be an interesting ability for Fushi to gain.

The Church of Bennett

The Uralis Kingdom isn’t a friend of the Guardians of Yanome. That much is clear. But, they’re also not necessarily enemies either. At first, I thought the Uralis Kingdom wanted to eliminate Fushi. However, it seems more like they want Fushi for themselves.

Why do the Guardians want Fushi? At this stage, it would seem they want to use him as a symbol. With Fushi on their side, they can unite the masses in the fight against the Nokkers. I’m not sure they realize the irony of passing a Nokker down to the descendants of Hayase.

As for the Uralis Kingdom, they seem to want to use Fushi’s ability to create. At least, that’s what it seems Bon-sama wants from him. He mentioned Fushi being able to provide for people and bring them happiness. And, he’s right. Fushi could do things like provide unlimited food and shelter.

Near the end of the episode, though, we learn of a third group that wants Fushi. This is the Church of Bennett and the Supreme Pontiff Cylira. Why do they want Fushi? It’s simple. They want to eradicate him because his existence goes against their religion.

We don’t know how old the Church of Bennett is yet. From Kahaku, we’re told it’s about 200 years since the time of Hayase. But, was the Church of Bennett around even before the events on Jananda Island? Or, did the church arise after tales of Fushi spread around Hena?

I guess now that we know the Guardians aren’t Fushi’s enemy, the church might be. Well, Bon-sama could turn out to be an enemy, as well. But, I have a feeling that won’t be the case in the end. The church, however, won’t ever come over to Fushi’s side.
