Ep. 69

Spoiler:
What is Maeter plotting? Still, it was good to see the robbers stopped.


Ep. 70

Spoiler:
A powerful episode. The irrationality of the idea that people are much less important than people almost cost Coa and his family their lives.

Episode 73
Spoiler:
Story about effects of extreme pride and colonialism sprinkled with a bunch of racism,an allegory to how Europeans were treating people on overseas territories...a black page in humanity history.
Subplot about heartless bureaucrats that treat 999 as easily replaceable commodity was also close to truth.

Ep. 74

Spoiler:
The Planet of Beggars is aptly named. Thanks to the rich exploiting the poor so blatantly, everything went under and even the rich had to beg. Thank goodness a man and his girlfriend made the right decision, after a wrong turn to steal passes from Maeter and Tetsuro.


Ep. 75

Spoiler:
I really hate this villain of the two-parter. What a punk to use people like that and then discard them, just as he did with everything else.
