D-did they just…? Uh… How Evil is Code: Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ – episode 6?
This was one fun episode. After all the madness from the last 5 episode, this one felt like a break, at first. The search for Cardia’s father leads them to an illegal race. It’s not an ordinary race either. It’s an airship race! The price for the race is apparently a clue to Cardia’s father’s lab. Or it can be used to find his lab in some way.
The race was a great way to get to know Impey a whole lot more. Now we know what motivates him and why he became an engineer. It was pretty awesome while it lasted. The action pretty much kicked off almost immediately afterward. And we got to meet another character.
Right after meeting Nemo, it was go time. Here’s where things got a little interesting. Their airship was borrowed without permission so they could enter the race. They covered up the insignia of the previous owner with a very shoddy paint job. Guess what happens in the race. The paint flakes off due to an attack from an opponent. Did I mention it’s kind of a demolition race?
With the logo revealed, the race becomes more of a hunt. Everyone vs our heroes. Including Nemo. My favorite part of this episode is how they dealt with their opponents. They employed Impey’s secret weapon, the Helsing Cannon (Ha). It does exactly what it sounds like. It was made to shoot Van at targets so he could one-man-army the crews, taking out the ships in the process. Just don’t ask how he gets back with the team.
Cardia did her thing well in this episode too. She, along with Saint, managed to force Van into the cannon. Cardia got a lot stronger. I don’t see that happening easily, and Saint doesn’t appear strong enough either. But the ending is when we got some answers and a whole lot more questions.
They found Dr. Beckford’s lab hidden in a graveyard. That’s not creepy at all. The lab is more or less abandoned. None of the guys find anything really of interest. Cardia, on the other hand, finds probably her own worst nightmare. An army of Cardias. She is a Homunculus.
To be honest, I expected something like this when the Philosopher’s Stone was mentioned. Of course, that may be because of Full Metal Alchemist. So far this show has been pretty awesome, and it just answered one of my questions so yay. I would say this episode is about as evil as a Killer Robot Army.

Well, that’s all I have for you today. Thanks for letting me waste your time, people.
