** Letting Azanael roam free is admittedly not a the most tactically sound move, but I think the emotional forces driving Hagino to do so make sense. Hagino feels on some level responsible for the death of Azanale's lover. She also clearly questions her fraternizing with humanity at numerous points in the anime, and is torn between loyalty to her own species and the obligations of her mission, and her feelings for Mari and other humans. Thus, she hoped that treating Azanael as more a guest than a prisoner would cool Azanael's hostility. To be fair to Hagino, learning that Ononil died to an accident Hagino had no ability to stop and that Hagino tried to save Ononil (by ordering her to get out of the ship) should have been enough to absolve Hagino of guilt in Azanael's eyes. Her tactic failed because she didn't count on Azanael being so angry, bitter and irrational.

Added DiffLines:

**My take is that Hagino's initial hostility was tempered by guilt and pity. This is why we get the internal-flash of crying Mari as a child. Hagino's initial guilt and her desire to protect Mari from the other aliens shifts into affection and love as the two of them spend time together.


** Actually, and this is the same guy who posted just previously and alittle bit above as well, I've figured out what it is that [[Headscratchers/ItJustBugsMe just bugs me]] about the series. For a series set firmly on the yuri side of things, it is deeply, unpleasantly homophobic. I mean, really, let's take a long, honest look at the implications and outright textual statements in play: Adult lesbians are sexual predators who will throw intelligence and responsible moral conduct to the winds if there's the possibility of having sex with young girls, which leads to: Lesbians in a position of power will abuse that power for the sake of corrupting young girls into being soft, passive sex objects. Lesbian teachers are in it solely so they can corrupt and seduce their students. The lesbian agenda is to sideline men and take away the women. Women who aren't sexual predators cannot effectively resist, and in any case, women cannot rape women, because a properly passive young woman will eventually accept and enjoy unwanted sexual contact, until it ruins men for her. Therefore, homosexuality is a learned behavious akin to TheVirus, and should be resisted.

*** Oh. I hate it when the answer in Headscratchers/HomePage pages is rank idiocy. It's like in ''Literature/GoodOmens'', when Azrael talks about how the demonic organisations contain the ineffable seeds of their own downfall, and Crowley responds that for his money, it's just plain old incompetence by everyone involved.

* Went and read Tenshi no Bokura. Do the Arume have any particular reason for being such colossal assholes, bordering on AlwaysChaoticEvil? Seriously. Their grand plan is to go extinct due to their collapsing gene pool, but to enjoy human women first, destroy human civilisation along the way, and possibly take humanity with them by wiping out men? What? Did the author set out to write about a race composed almost entirely of [[PsychoLesbian Psycho Lesbians]]? Is BlueDrop actually an attack on lesbianism in the media?

*** WriterOnBoard who probably subscribes to the "gayness is something created by circumstances and choice and is horrible" philosophy, combined with misogynic low estimate of female strength of will and domino-theory-esque paranoia, combined with a deconstruction of some pre-existing implications of the stuff seen in other less anvilliciously atrocious BlueDrop media.

Added DiffLines:

*** [[SarcasmMode Because Arume were such nice people in the previous ''Blue Drop'' media]]. Seriously though, the leadership ''was'' looking for a way to avoid extinction (male Arume genes), but the majority of them seems to [[TheHedonist only care about getting what they want]] and [[ItsAllAboutMe don't really give a crap about their race going extinct in the future]]. Because, well, it isn't happening in their lifetime and the changes necessary to avoid extinction would inconvenience them right now. Come to think of it, they aren't much different from humans in that regard.

* Do all Blue Drop media happen in the same continuity, as in, is Tenshitachi no Gikyoku canon to the manga? Which reminds me...
** What's the chronological order of the franchise then?

Added DiffLines:

*** Its possible that whatever method they use to combine female gametes isn't viable in the ''really'' long term, maybe dangerous mutation rate or slowly increasing risk of birth defects or something.



to:

** If it's a greater diversity in genetic material the Arume are after, then earth's females would do just as well as the males, considering the Arume have technology to merge the genes of female gametes to produce offspring. In that light, their attraction to earth females would serve them just as well, so it's odd they would have to bother with males.
