->In this episode, [[Creator/StudioGainax GAINAX]] tells us that Toji Suzuhara is [[{{retirony}} three days from retirement]], that he always carries [[FatalFamilyPhoto a photo of the girl back home whom he's going to marry]] as soon as this is all over, and that he's [[BlackDudeDiesFirst the black guy]]. And then they sit back, smiling, and give us ''plenty'' of time to worry about the implications.

->''"Surviving a war story is actually pretty straightforward. The less poignant the death would be, the more likely a soldier is to survive.
