** You know what? I've finally come to the realization that out of everything in this series, the only thing that bugs me is the Major, and this is a troper who is a massive fanboy of [[CommandAndConquer Kane]], [[Series/TheXFiles The Cigarette-Smoking Man]] and [[GeneralRipper Col. Quaritch]]. I don't know what it is, but it's just that something about the way he acts just makes me want to wring his neck! I just...I need help understanding why.

\n** My take on it is that Hyobu is the BigBad for the series, and a recurring villain, much in the same way Magneto is often the bad guy for the ComicBook/XMen. He's not outright evil, and in fact turned this way specifically because someone he trusted ended up betraying and trying to kill him. He probably would have been working alongside Fujiko and BABEL if his trust in humans hadn't been destroyed by his former commander. And while he is antagonistic towards BABEL, he does help them once in a while, largely for Kaoru's sake, but he's still helping them.
*** Because of that, while Minamoto sees him as a major obstacle, he also knows that if he does kill Hyobu, Kaoru would never forgive him either, for the reason another poster mentioned above about killing dangerous espers. And Hyobu also knows killing Minamoto wouldn't win Kaoru over to his side either, though that doesn't mean he won't harass Minamoto as much as possible. If Hyobu got to the Children before Minamoto did, it's very possible they would have sided with him, since other than the BABEL chief, they were still ostracized by their own supposed "teammates", like their previous handler.

** it was stated early in the anime (when they started at school) that their limiters were specifically made so that they couldn't be removed...but that might have been a dud translation or something and I don't remember it being mentioned in the manga at all.

* Why couldn't the anime come up with more original plotlines? It gets really boring when you can tell everything that will happen within the first 5 seconds of the episode because you already read the manga storyline it's using.
** It's kinda the point of a direct manga-to-anime adaptation.
*** This anime takes it beyond all reasonable limits though, and uses identical dialog and scene layouts. It's like they took frames from the manga and animated them.
** Conversely, if the anime actually had a ''different'' storyline, you'd hear that TheyChangedItNowItSucks instead of ItsTheSameSoItSucks. [[UnpleasableFanbase You just can't win.]]

Added DiffLines:

** It also has to do with a precarious narrative balance between the two- Kyosuke could easily off Minamoto with a thought, but he knows that if he does Kaoru is going to find out somehow, and when she does he and his gambits are '''''screwed.''''' Since Minamoto could probably kill Kyosuke (it's proven that the blaster can kill Future!Kaoru, and she's implied to be as powerful if not moreso than Kyosuke himself), there has to always be some kind of condition or psyche factor to keep that as a MexicanStandoff- if the heroes hold all the cards, its a boring story with no real point.
