Metropoliman, not like the pacifistic Kakehashi Mirai, is keen to do something to get forward, together with using deadly pressure. His strategies are excessive, and whereas that has put Kakehashi’s workforce on the ropes greater than as soon as, Metro’s strategies lastly flip towards him, and he learns the identical lesson that different villains finally study — that worry and intimidation cannot surpass belief and friendship.
Metropoliman has already despatched his latest agent, Sokotani Hajime, to take Mukaido’s family hostage, till Hanakago Saki used her crimson arrow to show Sokotani to her and Kakehashi’s aspect. Metro strikes back with his newest team of villains, together with the disease-loving Kohinata Fuyuko and the heavily-armed Bakamatsu Ryuji, just for each of them to fall in battle towards Mirai’s workforce. Sokotani Hajime succumbs as nicely, and Metro, as a real anime villain, mocks the fallen warriors and deems them unworthy of combating by his aspect. Then, his sole remaining ally, a masked boy with angel wings, loses his nerve and retreats.
To Metro’s dismay, the masked boy can not stand the bloodshed, and no finger sees a cause to danger his life for Metro’s sake. He even mocks Metro earlier than departing, leaving Metro alone towards a number of enemies, most of all Kakehashi Mirai. That is paying homage to the Girl A incident at the Great Tower, the place Metro casually killed Woman A in an try and wipe out his true enemies. Metro additionally killed everybody concerned on the Jinbo baseball stadium occasion, and it is clear by now that Metro views his allies as disposable weapons, not valued companions. This units him other than the happiness-seeking Kakehashi, and it is catching as much as him. Metro cannot hold this up for for much longer, and for the primary time, he should battle utterly alone.
These traits paint Metropoliman as a basic anime villain — a egocentric and brutal character who makes use of sheer pressure and depravity relatively than noble beliefs or the ability of friendship to battle. This places Metro in such firm as Captain Sosuke Aizen and Demon Lord Clayman, to call two examples. Clayman particularly tried and did not defeat Rimuru Tempest with a military of unwilling minions. Clayman’s minions fell one after the other, and one of them, Milim, had never actually been under his control at all. Sosuke Aizen, in the meantime, by no means cared for the ten Espadas who fought for him and even turned on the final surviving one, Tier Halibel, out of sheer frustration. Serving an anime villain at all times seems badly, and the identical is true in Platinum Finish.
Metropoliman learns that these strategies by no means end up nicely, and that aggression and depravity can by no means really surpass the bonds of friendship and religion. It might be simply the shonen style talking, however for one cause or one other, Metro’s merciless methodology disintegrate round him on this episode, and it appears unlikely that he can discover and recruit extra allies who will go well with his wants. His minions are likely to both die on their very own, get betrayed or swap sides, and Metro cannot hold this up. He should discover a higher cause to battle or undergo defeat despite his remarkable progress in the God candidate battle.
