The episode begins with a shot of the Greetings Robotics blimp panning down to the United Nations headquarters towering over the New York skyline. The scene changes to the large United Nations auditorium with the Greetings Robotics CEO on the podium. He goes on to explain how "since the 1943 phenomenom, the world as we know it has been plagued with an immaterial Cerebral Electricity". He also explains how the electricity wasn't a foreign substance but was rather found. While he narrates the scenes change showing a well of static, scientists studying the malleable static and the construction of KAMI. The episode ends with a demonstration of KAMI's teleportation ability.

I agree with TheReviewTrickster about the speech being too cliched for the series. Unless, of course, it was meant to be flat, as a way to further emphasize the plot?

;) I love your cinematic bent and extraordinary camera work. It almost reminds me of Gandahar. Almost. But, there's something else... BAH can't remember who it reminds me of right now.
In any case, I am very drawn to KAMI. But, will it turn out to be Izanami-no-Kami? Was that intentional?

So...they made God? That's interesting. I'm not sure how I feel about this shift to big UN meetings with incredibly important robots being unveiled. The speech just seemed a bit cliched for this series. That shot of the eye was magnificent, though. I really like how the CEO guy is so dark and ominous. I'm guessing the phenomenon he referred to was the thing with the ship that created Mischief, since he has static behind his eyes, and disembodied minds are pretty much his description. So, if I'm going with my interpretation, they made God and shone a light into the darkness of the ghosts. They put the freedom in a body of their own creation, which means they've trapped it so it would guide them. Interesting development. If I'm going with your individualism thing, they've also made God to guide them. I suppose that would put Mischief teaching the blue guy about freedom on the opposite end of the spectrum. I'll have to see where this goes.

Definitely one of the most interesting things I've come across on newgrounds in a long while. Among heaps of run-of-the-mill cartoons it's refreshing to see something like this pop up seemingly out of the blue. We really need more things of this nature on here, keep it up!

Thanks SleepingVillage :)

The true face of KAMI looks like a 4th-dimensional face. So unique and intriguing series.

Very nice choice of colors in this and the past episodes.

I'm a bus!
