*Possible minor spoiler alert*
I’m currently in the midst of watching episode 15 of Darling in the FranXX, but something pretty serious caught my eye here, and I needed to stop everything to make mention of it.
Is this what I think it is? Is a female character actually piloting a FranXX here?
If so, this could have some pretty interesting implications as it pertains to critiquing FranXX in a way that examines heteronormative sex/gender standards, which is something I’ve talked about with The AniMessenger once or twice and hope to discuss on the podcast at some point in the future.
Now, there’s a chance this is explained in the next 18-20 minutes of this episode (in which case I’m clearly jumping the gun), but I couldn’t un-see this after I saw it…
*Near immediate update*
Okay, so it seems that whole unit operates like that.
