  • It seems to me like he was varnishing her. – StackedCrooked Aug 31 '13 at 15:03

It is symbolic. In this scene, he is cleaning his weapons. In Gusseppie's mind, Ein is not human, she is a weapon. An inanimate object, and in the same way he cares for is ruger, he cares for Ein. While I don't think he was literally rubbing her down in weapons lubricant or copper solvent, I believe the intent was the same.

  • He... actually was putting gun oil on her body. - source the anime and the 2001 copy of the original visual novel the anime was based off of that I own. Edit: Either way, he is still a egotistical pervert. shudders. – Toyu_Frey May 9 '19 at 5:58
