Sailor Star Dust: I can't help but wonder if the solitude (whether by choice or by peers) doesn't bother Rei even the tiniest amount...
NemZ: To quote "Rei's poem" from ep 14:
All of them the same. All of them useless.
thewayneiac: Could you elaborate on how that applies to this cut? Are you saying that she's sitting apart because she considers her classmates useless?
NemZ: In the sense that they don't have a specific purpose like she has, yes. Even if Rei doesn't understand her feelings of loneliness I suspect she's built a solid rationalized defense against them all the same: a measure of contempt for these normal children, created without purpose or design.
