Lan-“Time to start my epic quest…as soon as I learn how to swim…”
|Hi Fosh! A swimsuit episode already?! You know, normally, swimsuits = fanservice, but maybe for Lagrange, it will be different. Plus this isn’t a harem anime. …Or is it. After watching this episode, I’m not so sure anymore.|
Ku ku ku! More high flying mecha this week with Lagrange, after the fun we had with episode three I wonder what happens next? We already had a mecha fight with Madoka and Lan fighting against Kirius and Izo…I think we are in for some slice of life high school fun. Swimsuits sound great right about now Kara, the beach and fun in the sun…
Plot this week follows Muginami transferring to Madoka’s school followed by Lan joining too, before the episode ends the two alien girls live with Madoka.
Well Izo was catching up on his homework, and by homework I mean anime marathon of TTGL…
Starting this episode we follow Kirius and Izo in space! Where they return to their ship to find a huge mess inside. Someone should have locked up before rushing to fight cute earth girls, before Kirius can shout at Izo for not locking up he spots a large red ship heading right for them and it is no friend of theirs. While the space bishies deal with their problems, Muginami joins Madoka’s school as the new transfer student! HOORAY! But she plays the fool and totally acted like she never met Madoka before. Maybe Muginami has trouble remembering names?Probably all those mecha battles they wrecked her brain?
Muginami-“I like you Madoka you smell like flowers.” Madoka-“Same to you cotton candy haired girl.”
Hentai in full HD? Good to see the commander squeezing in time for more anime.
Meanwhile Yoko and Todokoro arrive at the school to talk to Ms. Iwabunchi about Madoka’s latest mecha adventure. This does not go over well with Ms. Iwabunchi at all! Because they actually have a rule about students piloting giant robots… Anime laws about mecha are crazy man, imagine that rule in Star Driver? Poor Takuto would fail to keep that rule in check. After Todokoro took a beating from Ms. Iwabunchi, however Madoka tells them she is perfectly fine with piloting the Vox aka Midori and Yoko comes up with a brilliant plan for the Jersey club. That plan is to hold a swimming competition to help the locals get over the OMG A GIANT ROBOT SMASHED MY HOUSE tragedy just to show the aliens hey! We are not afraid of you! Yes nothing says fearless like girls in swimsuits.
Iwabunchi-“YOU GOT TO FIGHT WITH GUTS MADOKA! LOTS OF GUTS!”
This looks so easy to draw I mean like copy paste swimsuit and change hair color! Just kidding…
Before the swimming competition starts Todokoro spots Lan floating on a small raft with a pair of binoculars, so she can keep an eye on Madoka and she spots Muginami joining the fun. As the race starts Lan notices Muginami vanished from her view, but unknown to Lan Muginami swam under her raft and flipped it over! Damn girl…you are a hardcore alien…however she watches as Lan drowns, but she gives Lan CPR and saves her life. I thought she was an assassin? I guess she has a heart of gold? After the mouth to mouth scene Madoka drags Muginami to her house and instantly recruits her blond friend to join the Jersey Club. Hooray fresh blood, Muginami even helps out at the restaurant and it makes Lan really jealous because she tries to do it too but she fails pretty badly…the poor girl trips and spills drinks. Before the night ends Madoka asks Muginami to live with her until she finds a place of her own, sadly this puts Lan in OH HELL NO! THAT’S MY GIRRRRLLL mode…
Lan-“what? I really love that song…I can’t help but sing it in my sleep every night.”
Muginami swimming into your heart causing some hnnnggggg deaths.
Lan-“Well that is not good, I hope a cute mermaid saves my life…”
Lan-“FUUUUU! That is no mermaid! But an alien girl is fine too.”
Madoka-“Hey dad can we pimp out my two alien girlfriends? THINK OF THE MONEY!”
Meanwhile Yoko and Souta do some science based stuff and discover some ancient relics regarding the various marks found on the girls bodies. Madoka’s is wind, Lan’s is water, and Muginami’s means fire! Oh wow Lan I think you really should switch marks with Madoka…Seriously water hates you. The next day we learn that Lan also joined Madoka’s school and moves in with her along with Muginami! That did not take long now did it?during the night Array managed a little prison break with some help from “The-evil-character-that-looks-like-wild-tiger” and escapes into space ending this episode.
Anti-Kotetsu-“Man I look great in these pants!” Izo-“Dude…those are my pants…”
Array-“LATER SUCKERS! Ooooh look a dolphin, I wonder if I can bring it home as a pet…”
Extra Mecha fun
Madoka-“see this is what yuri looks like.” Muginami-“Ooooh wow earthlings sure are fun…”
Madoka-“Where did all these girls come from?!” Muginami-“Sorry I left the clone machine on again.”
Todokoro-“Thou shall not ride inside metal giants, even on Sunday.” Madoka-“Whoaaaaaa…”
Lan-“Nothing weird about me! Just a normal girl from earth…woof…”
Muginami desu! This episode was hilarious. That whole waitress scene with Muginami and Lan was so funny (well, not so much Mugi, but the whole thing with Lan being extremely clumsy was). Lan seems the type who would be prefect at everything while Mugi seems more the type to trip on a perfectly flat and level floor. Nice role reversal! There seems to be some uhhh… tension between Lan and Mugi. Madoka seems to be caught in a triangle that I’m pretty sure that she isn’t even aware of. Hell, I don’t even know if Mugi is aware of it (though I do bet that she knows more than she lets on). Either way, the yuri levels are extremely high, but this is still extremely entertaining for me. I can’t wait to find out more on Muginami’s character.
HOLY CRAP KOTETSU, WTF ARE YOU DOING HERE AND WHY ARE YOU EVIL?! Or at least he looks evil with that flashy fur coat. But seriously, it looks JUST LIKE HIM. I guess the space bishies are perfectly okay with joining him even though he probably trashed their space ship? I don’t even know. What I do know is that I think I’ve found my favorite antagonist(?)s of the season. Since it looks like Anti-Kotetsu (that’s my name for him now) will be meeting Madoka next episode, I’m excited to see what his personality is actually like. Now all we need is an Anti-Barnaby. SOMEONE MAKE IT HAPPEN!
So we’ve got the 3 robots, they have their own color and now they have their own element too. Why do I feel like I’m watching a reeeeeeeally old mahou shoujo? I mean, the colours are convenient to tell the robot apart and all, but once you give each robot their own element, I immediately flash back to my childhood and link this stuff I used to watch. I mean, I loved things like that as a kid, but now all I can think of is Magic Knight Rayearth. Don’t get me wrong, I still like Rayearth and there’s nothing wrong with Lagrange, but randomly adding in the elements just makes the whole idea seem outdated to me. …But that could just be me. But this show does have a ton of similarities to Rayearth now that I think about it. Let’s just hope some blonde girl doesn’t show up and ask Madoka to save her world. As for the evil overlord, it looks like Anti-Kotetsu has that covered.
Oh ma god! This episode was a lot of fun we finally got to meet the famous Muginami! That girl is soooooo much fun…and yes Kara! Mugi desu all the way…she is so sneaky and very interesting to watch, just what is she? Alien assassin sent to kill Madoka and Lan? Or perhaps she is just a spy sent to earth by that evil alien or “Anti-Kotetsu” as Kara calls him? Either way she was eyeballing Madoka like she was some prize. However I don’t think Muginami is truly evil because she did give Lan CPR saving her life. Then again it could just be be an elaborate trick just to gain the girls trust.
Watching that whole restaurant scene with Muginami and Lan was absolutely hilarious! I still felt bad for Lan…that poor girl just made friends with Madoka and here comes another girl stealing her new best friend away! Its alright Lan you still have your fans out here in the real world…and to make matters worse Muginami can swim? And she is going to live with Madoka? Lan you have some serious work to do if you want to keep up that special friendship you have with Madoka…And agreed Kara! They have color themed mechs and now awesome elements? I think Lan got the short end of the deal with the whole water element…maybe we got some Aquarion influence? I will laugh my ass off if the girls combine their machines together.
Anyway this episode was filled with lots of comedy thanks to Muginami and Lan, but we also got more science stuffs like the relics…that shot of Souta and Yoko in the lab reminded me of Stargate! They just needed a large metallic ring in the background to complete the shot. And Array escaped! I wonder who freed that kid? Lets place the blame on evil space Kotetsu! Who looks just like Madoka’s dad…whoa…freaky…maybe that is Madoka’s uncle? MUHAHAHAHA.
Lan so Hnngggg this week hugging her whale.
Madoka has a chat with evil Kotetsu and lan plays baseball!
