Rilu Rilu Fairilu

Is Rilu Rilu Fairilu a lesson for children in the follies of totalitarianism? Or is it trying to brainwash kids into finding it acceptable? The entire concept of the show is about the working class fairilus being kept under close watch by their all-powerful, all-seeing godking Gaul. The main character dares to defy her mental conditioning and oftentimes attempts to escape into the human world. But the godking keeps preventing her, telling her how great Little Fairilu is. So it's hard to say which way the show is leaning. Will Lip be able to achieve her dream of mating with a human? Or will the all powerful Gaul prevent her escape?
