The translation for this episode was a little delayed, so the episode entry has to be delayed too. Like as I expected of it, it gives us more espionage and arms dealers politicking just in this single episode. If Sakamichi no Apollon offers realism in drama, Jormungand offers realism in assault combat, espionage, and politicking. Beat that, Hollywood!
The assault between the Taiwanese arms dealer squad and the HCLI squad was brief, with more focus on Valmet’s rage against Lt. Karen Low. It also demonstrated to us how Koko manipulates and outsmarts her enemies and the spies. She refused a collaboration with the Taiwanese arms dealer, even if she was given several glasses of wine. In order to get away from the Taiwanese, Koko even used Agent Scare Crow’s partner to relay a message in order to secure a safe escape using the CIA helicopter stationed nearby. In the end, Koko wasn’t able to meet Dr. Amanda.
