Sekirei ~Pure Engagement~: All the Excitements

Currently finished: Episode 5

Up till now, the story of Sekirei is like showing everybody a hanging garden without revealing what is it built on. For all I know at this point, this hanging garden could really be just floating on thin air without any foundation beneath it to support it.

But it's interesting how it can just keep getting more and more exciting even with this important piece of information missing. Now it's reaching yet another local climax. Even though the outcome will be somewhat predictable (I somehow doubt they're going out of the typical pattern for this event), it is still very interesting to watch.

Although animes like this are all about the "moment" and the parts that build up for the "moment", it'll still be nice once a while if they can show us some of the "foundation" which this whole hanging garden is built upon. Since this is only episode 5 and they're already reaching a key plot point of the story, I think there is a very good chance we might actually get to see some of the roots beneath all these nonsense before the end of this season.
