Kodoani.com – Another God candidate to join the battle, his name is Hajime Sokotani, who sees the evil Metropoliman as a true hero and role model. It is true that Metropoliman had built a heroic image in the public eye at first, but Hajime respected Metropoliman for more reasons than that.
Mirai Kakehashi has since formed a team with Mukaido and Saki, but now Metropoliman has his first major ally, and the duo threatens everything Mirai and Mukaido hold dear. In the process, Hajime shows how depraved he is, which calls into question every angel’s judgment of humanity.
Metropoliman uses only the brutal “Girl A” as bait and a tool, but his newest ally, Hajime Sokotani, sets himself apart with his ruthless, cunning, and thoughtful methods. mine. Unlike Girl A, an ordinary knife-wielding serial killer, Hajime is a God candidate who has the patience to plan days or weeks in advance to get what he wants. Hajime defines himself as a villain at heart, from his combination of cold and calculating personality and gritty origin story. As a young boy, Hajime had no self-respect or confidence, due to his unusually ugly appearance and the way everyone, including his family, blatantly rejected him. Like many previous villains, Hajime managed to strike back and tear the world apart giving him nothing at all.
In a flashback, Hajime meets a handsome angel named Balta, who grants arrows and red wings. Hajime uses them for plastic surgery and overall makeup to transform his appearance. But it’s not enough for him. He began idolizing Metropoliman on television news programs, seeing Metropoliman as the epitome of good looks, courage, intelligence, and confidence. These were all traits Hajime wanted for himself, so he approached Metropoliman as an ally. Metropoliman used him to capture Mukaido’s family and thus lure Mukaido and Mirai to a new battlefield. The whole time, Balta acted as the guide for Hajime who talked a lot about that particular angel.
Hajime and Balta’s actions and plans reveal a lot about the two of them, none of which is good. The angels are somewhat different in their personalities, from Baret’s gentle and wise personality to Nasse’s sadistic but playful attitude, and Revel’s protective, older brother attitude towards Saki. Balta, meanwhile, proves himself to be an even more insane version of Nasse, who repeatedly activates Hajime’s selfish and extreme methods without end.
Balta chose Hajime based on intuition, as he stated in the episode, and he believed that Hajime should create an interesting God candidate and potential God. However, Hajime’s personality and desires are transformed by alienation, self-loathing, and despair, and while these make for an interesting warrior, he will be a formidable potential ruler. horror of heaven. Most likely, Balta chose Hajime for entertainment, to cruelly watch the most desperate humans tear each other apart with God’s gifts. Balta is more like a cruel underground steward than an angel of the gods.
Meanwhile, Hajime made it clear that his misfortunes left permanent mental scars. It was true that most of God’s candidates were on low scores when the respective angels approached them, but even then, Hajime still chose to commit evil deeds for his own selfish reasons. This includes taking a child and pregnant woman hostage in order to manipulate Mukaido and impress Metropoliman. Hajime’s unrepentant actions and idolizing Metropoliman, make him one of Mirai and Mukaido’s worst enemies.
Chances are, either the heroes will defeat him, Metropoliman will kill him to end their bond, or Metro will reject Hajime, causing him to take his own life in despair. One way or another, this couldn’t end well for Hajime.
