Fugō Keiji Balance: Unlimited

Chapter 7: Money is the Root of Evil

The story of Chao-San and Taike as a detective couple makes sense as a missing piece in the recent murders. Daisuke's mother was murdered 19 years ago and Chao-san and Taike were the detectives in charge. The case was not resolved. Although the detective couple investigated the ultimate consequences, the kambe did not allow justice to be served. Ultimately, money is the source of this crime.

determination

Daisuke is vain and mysterious enough to believe that his approach to police life has to do with a personal commitment or a precise determination to seek justice. In reality it seemed so far just a rich child experiment. This anime has taken us from superficial character development to the bowels of even bigger and more universal problems. The history of our life can determine us to different degrees and on different margins. Many believe that doing it yourself is a free choice, but it's only a point; Everyone decides which of the various options presented in this algorithm we want to follow.

In this story, two men come together who, thanks to the conflicts their past has caused, reach the same split and become a detective couple ready to bring justice at any cost. Money is capable of the worst evils if not used well; for Daisuke it will be the opportunity to drop his father; For Haru it will be an opportunity to reconsider death. Both represent two ways of living righteousness, each of which has different obstacles to overcome, but which will certainly make them better depending on how they see themselves in the world.

Bad Education

Fugō Keiji Balance: Unlimited He asked us after the worst criminals. Shigemura, Daisuke's father, has anchored his empire under illegality and attacked anyone who stood in his way. I have a feeling your son will be no exception. This path has brought Daisuke outside of the institutions and Haru closer to them. These types of stories, which show us the two faces of justice, are designed to educate us about the problems of their representatives. On the one hand, Daisuke has resigned from the police; it is evident that his approach was only personal and was intended to get his father to visit him. Furthermore, like any organization made up of people, this institution is manipulable and affordable. The search for the truth becomes more difficult when there is someone over you deciding what and what not to know.

Outside of these institutions, however, it is no more honest and simple. Unless you are the one controlling the truth, justice will just be a lovely kid's story to hold on to so as not to lose consciousness. This anime explores both structures to come to the conclusion that justice is not a question of power or incorruptible values, let alone institutions, but merely a cumbersome and, above all, personal matter.

Fugo Keiji Balance's Final Conclusions: Unlimited

Fugō Keiji Balance: Unlimited You are on the right path to success and you will surely achieve it. The story progresses with rhythm and to a certain extent that it is necessary to move forward in order to give the impression of being done and to leave only three points that make us want more. As in music, the narrative also requires the interruption of the sound to make way for the roar of the percussions that herald the expected climax. We have come to a point of no return where all we can do is shoot Haru and Haru want to confront her father. Both things require a certain degree of maturity and a certain amount of preparation, which we haven't seen yet, but those will certainly be the three points with which we will end this first season.

With each chapter the story increases and leaves us with the soul in a thread. That first act was a success, it has yet to wait for its end and only ask that it be the promising fame it has been since the first chapter. Don't lose sight of this anime and let's be part of an important shift in finding the truth, applying justice, and most importantly, overcoming history, if we just let ourselves be. without fear of being Haru; Daisuke, no secrets.
