What is this Japanese fascination with weaponized children? It disturbs me. There are so many of these stories, it is its own genre.

This is Ryukishi we're talking about, so you can bet there's gonna be a clear thematic purpose behind it.

And for the record, most of the rest of the cast, also using the same weaponry and technology, look to be older teenagers or even adults.
