This anime just has brilliant storytelling. Little by little it builds the story and even minor characters have important roles to play. The relationship between Harry and Brandon reminds me a lot of the one between Guts and Griffith in Berserk.

Can't believe Brandon and Maria didn't get together. All that "I will be happy for him" is crap. Anyway, the story is great so far.

I agree. This anime keeps reminding me of Berserk and the game Mafia II.

Harrys on that Raoh level ambition, While I'm not a huge fan of his new look I definitely like how assertive Brandon's gotten.

I think it's odd that Brandon likes Maria but doesn't go after her, and it's clear that she also have feelings for him.
And Brandon changed a lot, the haircut and glasses give him a serious vibe.
Harry is dating Sherry, no surprise. And it was obvious that he could keep the doctor working in the dead alive...

Really Harry, you just had to go for the kid?

Otherwise the buildup is spectacular. The divide in interests between Harry and Brandon has been very subtle but given plenty of attention. I don't even mind the sci-fi aspect at this point, it's being integrated into the plot nicely.

Clear Guts and Griffith connection here, it isn't done nearly as perfect mostly due to pacing, but it's still done very well. This is likewise, a story of intersecting ambitions that have no limits. Both anime have a mostly fully fleshed out and beautifully characterized cast which drive the story as well.
I love Brandon's new look, he would be a good Daddy. I can only hope the new use of supernatural elements will be a little better than the mess it was at times before.

I don't like where this whole business with Maria and Brandon is going...

Looks like Harry is close to his goal and ready to move.

I dig Brandon's new look, he reminds me of Hajime Saito from Rurouni Kenshin. Both characters share the same english voice actor so the resemblance is actually kind of scary.

Uh oh, I had a feeling Harry was going to invest in the super soldier project. Millennion is not going to like that especially after those super soldiers wiped out so many of their men...
