Shino's monologue really sums up just why I find Takoha's character so effective and never coming off as cheesy. He's a totally ordinary man, what makes him so special really is just that he has courage. He's the only one who confronted and overcame his trauma in the past, all the other characters have dealt with it by avoiding it. He just gives them the courage to finally confront it so they can try to move on. It's not even really the motivational speeches, so much as he gives them a chance to clear their heads when usually they're too paralyzed by their fear or guilt to think of anything else.

Courage isn't a lack of fear. It's being able to face your fear head-on and push onward.

This chapter is a huge turning point for Shino, and by connection everyone Shino controls.

Previously, both Takoha and Rokurou have survived solely on the fact that Shino's hubris made her disregard them as a threat. But now that she's realized the importance of having "main character" types around, she's aiming for the heart now, so to speak.

Only the madlad Fujita would devote 2/3 of his chapter to a villain's internal monologue, and only Fujita could make that pacing work so well. Man, I really love how we've been allowed to view Shino's thought processes so intimately over the course of the series, because "her" development not as a character (she certainly hasn't improved morally), but as a villain and in her understanding of human emotions has been super interesting. Considering we have yet to hear even a single thought from Deido that wasn't being transmitted to a main character through dialogue or magic alien water, Fujita is taking two *very* different approaches to villains here. One functions based on logic and we are given nearly full access to those thoughts, while the other is vastly illogical and the more he reveals, the more confused we are.

I thought Deido was the first big obstacle.
