A Reunion in Kamogawa
Yeah, you can’t take anything in this show too seriously…but at least it’s still entertaining! As the episode title implies, all the characters get together for a meeting on Earth to discuss the fate of their planets. Or as I’d like to call it, a costume party, since everyone’s wearing something weird and different. To begin, Astelia traps Dizelmine and Vilajulio in an elevator, listening to their conversation from another room. Of course, they don’t really solve anything, but it’s interesting to learn that they used to be best friends. Meanwhile, their subordinates are bickering outside like children. Their problems would be easily solved if you could just give everyone a popsicle…
Dizelmine and Vilajulio (these are just the strangest names I’ve ever had to write) are pretty lax in the beginning, but when they have a real meeting with Astelia at the table, the drama finally unfolds. The mysterious girl, or Yurikano, turns out to be Vilajulio’s real sister. She only ended up with Dizelmine because he rescued her from the Tragedy of Militia Zodia, and she has no memories of her life before then. I think she had a greater involvement in it though, perhaps contributing to the cause. Dizelmine also mentioned that she is his trump card in the war. Vilajulio can’t stand it, so his scary, serious side comes out again! Woo!
It’s really cute to see Lan and Muginami’s reactions to their brothers being there. They can’t really believe it’s happening, and whenever one of their brothers offends the other, they have to apologize. =P Towards the end, Madoka is able to confront Yurikano. Why was she in her cockpit? And didn’t she meet her before then? Yurikano is either acting innocent or the answers are buried deep within her subconscious… So what happens next? Madoka and Muginami get the brilliant idea to disguise themselves as Lan’s “ordinary friends” to ride in one of Dizelmine’s ships. It’s a horrible disguise though! Silly girls. Well, I’m looking forward to their adventure to Le Garite! It’s just what I’ve been waiting for.
