Konbanwa Kaminski-san, wow, I can't believe the censor picked that up in the middle of another word (and the i is silent anyway) ... I guess
Japanese isn't an accepted language (I actually had to remove Japanese characters from the mini-profile, even though it was quite generic words, but
people might 'freak out' or something).
That teacher was a shocker at the end ... She never really involved herself with anything, and apparently her lifespan is not so limited (because of
non-confrontation possibly?). Maybe secretive, to observe, but also not be harassed (by Vesper or the Management). The vessel did happen to visit
the school she taught, she could easily monitor the children and other teachers' reactions. She was supposedly '25' at the time he attended.
Like you said, a non-partisan teacher. Of course, they don't get into how many Saints lived on Earth ... and the main character has a secret that
would be best revealed by watching. So it fits in the story line well ... even the fact that she moves to the other place to teach. It could be the
same today, other 'beings' living with us, guiding us without our knowledge. Helping us transition and when the time comes, guide us through a
I also noticed how there was a certain acceptance of things and emotional detachment when they were not on the planet. As if they evolved beyond the
normal emotional bonds, though being near or around Humans spark that feeling somewhat (if they are evolved Humans, that would make sense that would
still be within them).
Other than her stating she understood nostalgia, and the special gift in the final episode, it almost seemed callused of it to take that long to do
such a thing, since it was possible and knew that it was needed ... and promised.
I think they used a great name for the 'aliens'. Saint ... since it has the religions connotation, and this is of course theorized by a lot of
people, and have read such theories on ATS ... that religion could be based off of an advanced -alien to us- group/species that would seem to have
incomprehensible powers ... both technological and telekinetic.
I find it fun to think about and discuss religious ideas or scientific theories regardless of my personal beliefs, for I have the ability to turn off
my defensive side in a discussion/debate for the sake of argument/conversation and have regularly played 'devil's advocate' talking about almost
anything. I actually find it quite sad that a lot of people cannot, and you have them blow up or get heated when you say something that doesn't fit
in their perfect little world or contradicts something a book or teacher taught them in the wonderful public school system that is no way biased or
I want to add the Please! Teacher series (Onegai teacher) ... it also has an alien race visiting us, and guess what ... working as a teacher
studying humans really. They have quite the technology, stuff we see in sci-fi like transport, cloaking of ships, intelligent robots (though not in
the form you would assume from that). The story hits on the alien theme a lot less ... and not really about disclosure in any way ... but it is a
theme of they are here, interacting with us, and it can happen without our direct knowledge.
Most of the stuff I watch does fit more in the romance or simplistic style (non-action ... otherwise NOT DBZ, Naruto, or anything else like that, no
offense if you like that sort of thing
I am rambling, but it doesn't matter, it is my dead first thread anyway
I do hope that at least someone checked out Mahoromatic, it really is
worth watching for a CT type person if you don't mind a little ecchi and romance mixed in with combat ... like I said before, the CT part of the
plot comes in slow ... sneaks in on you until it smacks you in the face. It has a happy ending for all those NWO, UFO, and alien CTers. Oh well.
At least I know one other person watched it!
