Anonymous asked me this on tumblr:
Do you think Leo isn’t human anymore somehow or is it misanthropy after a bad break up with Mabu(I’m kidding here but he seems very different as you said…)
Here’s my reply:
I’m not sure if he ever was human actually. Both he and Mabu act so ridiculous at times, especially Mabu with his cooking obsession.
I assume we’ll meet Mabu next week so it’ll be easier to say if anything happened to them then, but so far I wouldn’t rule it out 😛 Most likely something happened to Sara though to make him like that.
mirikins then replied to me:
And this is not a prequel to him meeting them?
To which I continued:
I’d rather say that Leo to Mabu (the spin-off manga) is a prequel to Sarazamai based on the fact that Sara (the baby they find in the manga) could be the same character that is shown in the pv’s, as she’s clearly more grown up in them!
Of course that doesn’t rule out the fact that the pv’s show whatever, or maybe the actual anime is all over the place chronologically. The pictogram humans actually all have what seems to be historical hairstyles, maybe it’s supposed to depict their old fashioned way of thinking, or maybe they actually are from the past and there are some crazy time shenanigans going on?
