God, what a Darwin award-winning derp-clown. I hope we weren't supposed to feel sorry for her. Fate characters sure seem to love "lol wut" deaths.
[spoiler=]"Yo Kerry, I took a bottle of magical Me-Am-Play-God pills. It was a tough decision; on one hand I could have fed some to my chickens first, but on the other hand HERP DEE DERP DERP. Soooo, down the hatch!"[/spoiler]
only one I felt sorry for was the father he was the nicest type moon magus father I have ever seen
I don't think we were suppose to feel too sorry for her, but she did present a nice dilemma for our young Kerry: Does he repent for his past mistake or ignore it? He chose to repent, and created a bigger mistake. It's her lines to him at the beach that's crucial in this episode. This episode and the next is vital into knowing Kiritsugu's character, and to understand how he managed to have such a distorted sense of heroism. This is as filler as Madoka ep10.
And I doubt a person with little education knows the complication of drug testing, let along something that's out of the realm of science. It's common knowledge for us that drugs has to go through animal testing first, but remember that she's from a tropical island. What's her education level like? Did she learn much about science and medicine? We should instead focus on what drives her to make that rash decision. She volunteered herself to be the test subject to prove to the village that the father's research isn't evil, well sadly it is evil. If anything, the father is also a lot to be blamed for not warning her regarding to the potential lethal side effects of the drugs.
Also, how do you know that the animals don't have different reactions to the drugs than to human? this is magic we are talking about here.
I just find it funny how you two focused on Shirley instead of Kiritsugu.
