The expressions for the Pumas in that episode were very good!
I'd never stopped to question this before, but now that you mention it, that does seem a little out of step with the setting otherwise. It's interesting that Leona's room as it appears in the anime is almost exactly the way it is in the Phantom of the Audience manga, right down to the model Boneapartes and the self-driving clock, but that manga is played for much broader laughs, so I suppose it was easier to slot in throwaway visual gags like that. In the manga, the clock also seems to fire BBs from its cannon, much to Leona's annoyance...Which makes me wonder, are the Tank Police celebrities and is there Bonaparte merch, or does Leona really have too much time on her hands and actually custom built a Bonaparte clock and multiple scale models?
A fair position to take. You're not wrong about the rather unsatisfying conclusion given how it ends part-way through the story, but I still really miss that particular version of Dominion's world. And Buaku, who I think is a really interesting character. Also nothing against redheads, but the Pumas should totally be blonde and anything else just isn't right.Overall I enjoyed the larger ideas of the first series more but as a whole story preferred New Dominion. It was well executed, funny, told one off stories that all tied into a larger arc and had a much more satisfying conclusion. If the original had had more episodes it could have been something very special but it's still nice to have what we do have.
Oh no, we've come this far, there's no turning back now. But not to worry folks, I've watched it again so you don't have to.Perhaps in part because it marks the end of the Dominion anime for the forseeable future (there is no more, nothing else exists, let's be clear on that)
