Animenewsnetwork - Episode 9 opens around its own little theme of applause. Mika is clapping enthusiastically, which can't be a good thing. Apparently, she has seen the full truth behind the Sibyl System and come away from all the horror impressed. Her hue is clear and she fully endorses Sibyl's use of "criminally asymptomatic" (i.e. psychopathic) brains to judge the hearts of the populace. Her clapping reminds Tougane of his childhood, when scientists would applaud wildly as he killed beagle puppies while running around a grassy field. He's almost jealous of Mika for making his mother so proud in his place. Well, I'm glad the episode is applauding itself, because I can't see much applause coming from the poor fanbase for this tripe.
