Girls’ Last Tour Episode 9: Humans, Machines and Living

This episode had a most interesting topic of discussion that, while nothing new in fiction, is still worth discussing from time to time.

Our heroines drove through another mysterious facility. As they drove a strange clanking sound could be heard which was revealed to be an enormous robot. It didn’t do anything to our adorable duo so they went on their way.

The girls went down some stairs and talked about living, specifically whether robots counted as living beings. Chito argued that the only living beings left were humans. They then found another fish in a water tank. Along with the fish they also met another robot that was the caretaker of the area. The big robot was a construction bot.

After a pool scene I care not to discuss (I don’t find either girl sexy) the caretaker talked about the facility once being a fish farm where they bred fish to sell. Eventually only that one fish remained. The caretaker noticed something special about the fish, it was evolving beyond regular fish. Yuuri, who started off wanting to eat the fish slowly realized that too when she helped feed it. The girls felt sleepy but before dozing off they talked to the caretaker about how he felt alive despite being a machine. He responded by saying he was programmed with empathy to communicate with humans.

Suddenly the big bot arrived and started dismantling the corridor. The little bot tried reasoning with him but the big bot said it was following its programming and would not override its orders. The fish was in danger and suddenly Yuuri felt the need to try and save it. The rest of the episode was deep, bittersweet and thought provoking.

Great stuff as usual.

    Hey guys, remember me? The guy that brought to you the Yuri short special of Sin: Nanatsu no Taizai? Well, BD special 5 unfortunately went the heterosexual route, but number 6 went back to Yuri world. But this one features Gluttony, AKA the Loli of the group, so it may not be to everyone’s tastes.

    Sadly, copyright has attacked that site I showed you last time. Couldn’t find another place to watch the specials, but I did find a download link. Again, totally NSFW.

    Now there’s only one missing. The last special, featuring Lust is going to come out later this month. After that, time for the Virtues to take the stage. Speaking of which, what do you guys think? The plot summary gave me the impression that this will be more of a spin-off than a sequel. Plus, it has an entirely different staff and studio. I’m a bit worried because if this anime isn’t being done by the same people there’s no way to be sure if it will also be Yuri. Let’s hope so.

    I really enjoyued this episode of Girls’ Last Tour. Like every other episode it doesn’t try to answer the tough questions but it puts them out there, has the girls explore them through their experiences and then we quietly move on. It is really fantastic to watch and sticks with you despite the slow pace and general calm atmosphere (though the robot this week did provide a bit more action on screen). Thanks for sharing your thoughts on it.

    The last time I comment about this anime here is way back in episode one. I admit I lost interest on this anime , maybe because of lack of more characters, maybe because of the ambience are too bland, or maybe the character design are too simplified. After reading the blogs about this anime from Anime News Network I noticed it has very positive reviews on every episode. OG’s review about this anime is also nice though. Thanks to him I might give this anime another chance I hope it’s not too late…

      It’s a thought provoking and heartwarming trip through a beautiful dystopian future where the “world” has already ended

      I don’t know if you’ll find future episodes interesting, but it certainly is one of my favorites this season~

    Chi and Yuu have made a new friend… that Yuu will have forgotten by next episode.

    I suspect they will meet one more in the finale.
