    I felt that this episode had issues at the moment I witnessed Kei and Yuri's shock at the fact the Chairman was a woman. I would have thought that if their characters were being represented properly they would perhaps have been encouraging this young woman towards rebellion in some way, rather than denigrating her?

    Yup, absolutely. I agree completely.

    I've considerably soured on this one and others like it since initially writing about it and finishing up the series. It's an episode where just about nothing is handled as it should be or comes together at all.

    Yes a big shame, really huge wasted opportunities here.
