So Charles likes to finish off the kill personally using a gun, eh? I think that qualifies him for being one of the bad guys. If he'd been paid enough he would have quite happily boarded the ship and stolen the "chocolate" for the pirates, rather than saving from them.

I think Charles is a douche. But at least he doesn't unnecessarily slap Renton around.

Someone tell me what the fuck was up with that rave party and suddenly mushrooms sticking out of the ground when there was an earthquake. Was Renton high?

Also mfing Charles.

I think I might have figured out why everything is what it is in Renton's time (and so Ao's aswell).
If you don't want a possible spoiler (who knows) then don't read on.

Charles looks similar to Renton. I bet thats his real father and not the other guy. Can't wait to see how this will play out.

Dominic visits Renton's place at the end it looks like.

Yea at least they don't freakin hit him. This couple is cool not like the other couple who always seem to have domestic dispute and beat Renton out of sheer pleasure

^Definitely . I mean they seem too good to be true. They could turn on Renton anytime now...... I just have a weird feeling about them cuz' usually people like that have ulterior motives!

Charles is so hipster that it's awesome. Renton doesn't seem to notice that the ship he's in looks like Gekkostate's (which iirc hadn't been released yet for military use). Weird. Or maybe it just hasn't crossed his mind. If things turn out to be what the anime opening would be hard for Renton.

tended to treat him like another member, someone equal to the adults. Well, this fact helped Renton to mature a bit, too. Charles and Ray, on other hand, put quite an emphasis on the fact Renton is still young and see him in a parental way. It ain't half bad, but I think for Renton, friendship relations on the Gekko are better.

Exactly. Everyone seems to think that Renton was treated badly on the Gekko now they see how Charles and Ray treat him. But the truth is that on the Gekko he was (almost) an equal and was treated as such. He wasn't being spoiled like he is now by those two.
I am not saying either is right or wrong by the way and I do think that Holland treated him unfairly but not the others.
I also like the things that Charles is saying to Renton, like that everyone is fighting for their survival and it's not just Good Vs. Evil. In this anime there aren't many truly evil enemies, it's just colliding interests and beliefs. Thats the reason why I find it strange that people already predict Charles becoming evil and even go as far as to compare it to Naruto Shippuuden.

How sweet, Renton found a family. I wonder what will happen if they found out who he really is.

Aside from the terrible spelling and no use of punctuation, I agree :) No one treats him like a kid (except for Holland) on Gekko and he gets pissed off because he doesn't see things like everyone else does, I guess he just wants to be babied. Matthieu and Eureka spoke to Renton as if he was an adult regarding the reason that they kill, but he doesn't understand so he leaves, but then understands it when Charles tells him that they're fighting to put food on the table. Really? How was that any different from what Matthieu said?

I wonder if Charles knows Renton is part of Gekkostate when he saw the wheel. I mean sure he knows Holland but I'm curious to know if he knows what he wheel signified.

Very interesting development, it's quite interesting how he joined up with those who seems to search revenge with Holland! But well let's see what happens next.

Waaa- Dominic was able to read... a map? What, I don't even...

It's obvious that Charles reconized the GekkoState member wheel. I hope he's not just using him to get closer to the GekkoState... Because if so, it will only hurt him in the end. I think Renton have received enough shit in the face since the beginning.

Anyway, that new couple is really cool and charismatic. Of course, it is hidding something since it's just too ''perfect''. It's too ''clean'', like if they wanted to erase their past.

The discussion between Gidjet and Eureka was cute. It show how Eureka is changing and people are now more willing to approach her.

Charles and Ray are pretty cool so far. Sadly I forsee their death in the future.

I am enjoyed this episode a lot more than almost all of the others. Renton is actually being treated like a human being with these new people whom we nothing about. Thats ok though because it feels like par for the course for his show! I mean why is the world the way it is? How did Rentons dad save the world? What is the crew of the Gekkos motivations? Is the government bad? I don't know because nothing has been explained!

All I know is that to me none of the characters from the Gekko have any appeal... In fact I actually dislike most of them. Even if this new group that Renton is with turns out to violently oppose the Gekko ship I would root for this new duo, unless something drastic happens. I really hope Renton doesn't go back...

I think I'm in agreement with everyone, I'm digging Ray Charles more than Gekko.

Finally got to see one of these tectonic shifts people keep talking about in action, scary stuff wonder what's causing them.

Charles and Ray seem like pretty cool characters and totally don't remind me of any characters from an older series nuh uh not at all.

Yeah, so far the supposed enemies have treated Renton way better than the Gecko crew. They are really nice and friendly to him and took him in.

I too enjoyed this episode more than most of the others, mostly because of the new characters and agree that that most of the Gecko crew aren't that great.
