KADO Episode 4


While this show has previously moved at a snail’s pace (though this has been needed given how much information we’ve had to take in), episode 4 seems to have finally planted its foot on the accelerator. Part of that came from the absence of zaShunina for the large majority of the episode as we instead focussed on the humans scrambling around trying to figure out what to do with the infinite energy literally dropped into their laps.


That said, this episode isn’t without zaShunina’s particular take on the world and his discussion about countries and their purpose and how they operate is kind of interesting. Though, more interesting is his declaration that the wam are not for countries but for humanity, cleanly separating the concepts even as the UN and other countries work to put pressure on Japan.

Not sure what the intention is for the next move but things are definitely rolling along now and certainly we saw a lot more tension in the narrative during episode 4 than in the previous episodes. Really enjoyable story so far.

KADO is available on Crunchyroll.

  1. I still plan to check this anime out even though I keep on forgetting to do so. There’s a few other anime I haven’t been able to catch up with as well.

  2. Glad to see that you like it. It’s actually my second favourite of this season (not counting sequels, they are a cheat). I’m seriously looking forward to seeing next episode. UN VS. Japan+zaShunina?

    Weird how I don’t suspect zaShunina at all. Am I just so blind towards white haired characters?

    1. I think the rest of us are just overly suspicious. He hasn’t actually done anything suspicious except that he’s being overly generous which automatically puts me on guard. That is a sad thing to realise about my own nature.

      1. I think that’s nice, being overly suspicious I mean. From what I’ve learnt by the numerous tales I’ve watched/read, it’s always better.

        But I suppose I lower my guard towards my favourite types of characters, maybe I was already thinking him as a MC?

  3. One has to wander what zaShunina’s ultimate goal is though. Really, ultimate power for all of humanity, but at what cost. I’m still trying to figure out what his ultimate endgoal is….all power comes at a price one would think. This has been another great episode, can’t wait for the weekend 😊

    1. I haven’t wanted to study physics but I have had a dictionary out more than once given their explanations of some of the terms have left me a little confused. So learning stuff.

    2. That’s exactly what I felt too. It seemed a Physics lesson when zaShunina was explaining the rules of the Universe in episode 3. I get this same feeling also when reading/watching Mahouka…

      Sometimes I confuse the notions of anime with reality though… you can see me sometimes trying to make things burst while screaming explosion for example, but only when I’m actually alone (that’s called chuunibyou actually, …that’s sad, having it at my age…).

        1. Worst(Best?) thing is that I don’t even really mind it that much. As I mostly do it when I’m alone, so there won’t be weird consequences.

          But sometimes I get scared by it: I naturally, and without even noticing, end up striking Jojo, Hououin Kyouma, Lelouch and Yagami Light’s poses from time to time…
