Truck-chan was bringing marshmallows to the party, anyone got some chocolate and gram crackers?
|Well I wasn’t planning to tag this again for a bit, but after watching this episode, I absolutely had to. It was just… wow. Maybe I’m just easily impressed, but I found this episode pretty good for GC.|
|Last week we got to finally see Inori’s true colors and Shu also discovered he could cry a hell of a lot more… just kidding! He figured out what needed to be done after Inori knocked him out…so what are we in for this week?! I hope some kick ass action and stuff blowing up.Plot follows Haruka stealing the last batch of Genome virus, while Segai finds the new base for the Undertakers and Shu gains his king powers once again.|
Segai-“This picture goes into my personal Gai_is_hot folder…”
Starting off this week of crystals and stuff with OH MAH HARUKA, doing some sneaky stuff behind the GHQ’s back for the sake of OH MA SHOE. She attempts to kill off Mana but quickly learns she is missing. Also did she call Shuuichirou her brother? Fufufu there are some crazy developments this week; however, he shoots Haruka, misses and she escapes with the last vile of that super virus. Segai is somewhat overjoyed by this news and decides to hunt for Haruka, but we all secretly know why! He is just super bored and wants to do some evil things before the series ends.
Haruka-“On the count of three, we make out…” Shuuichirou-“Wow…that is totally sick! LET’S DO THIS.”
While Haruka zooms off on her new ride to save the world, Shu decides to stop crying like a baby and take some action. He even takes Arisa hostage to drive him around…however, she is only going along with Shu because she wants to find Haruka and bring her to her lord and master Gai. Yes, I’m sure Gai will hug you and have special fun time with you, Arisa. Haruka meets up with the remaining Undertaker members and tells them how she became Shu’s mother, but in reality she is only his step mother, while Mana was actually her real daughter. DUN DUN DUUUNN! Not that it matters a hell of a lot at this point anyway, right?
Being kidnapped by a one armed man? Arisa, you got issues girl.
Haruka-“Thanks for saving me, so here is your reward: a flash back scene.”
Enjoy this pointless flashback scene with OH MA MOMMA.
After that random story, Segai finds out the location of the Undertakers and starts shooting the place up. He also proves he can do some fancy work with a set of large knives and kills Oogumo… Rest in peace, man of few words; you will be missed. Haruka retreats back to Tsugumi, Ayase and the others, where she plans on giving the virus to Ayase so she can take on Gai and the rest of the GHQ. Segai on the other hand has major plans for the virus and he leads a raid on the second base and interrupts Haruka’s plans.
Segai-“I brought my own guns to this show and by guns I mean KILL EVERYONE!”
Shibungi-“So…how’s it going man, I see you took my hair color.” Gai-“As you can see I make it look better.”
Segai-“It’s a party and every robot with a giant machine gun is invited.”
Ayase tries to retrieve the virus after Segai shot the case down some stairs…but it rolls right in front of Shu who picks it up and injects himself with it and powers up. Damn you, OH MA SHOE! I wanted to watch Ayase become super powerful and save the world…just kidding, you can have it. After Shu powers up, he grows a new arm made of crystal and starts to absorb all of the voids around him, taking out Segai for good. Everyone stares in shock as Shu walks towards them with void cancer growing on his face, I guess after he took Souta’s void away, he took the void cancer with him. So, this means Shu takes on both the good and bad qualities of the void like void cancer…
Ayase-“I will not stand for this, OH MA SHOE!” Shu-“Sorry, but I have a handful of people to save.”
I don’t want to see Shu without pants…
Segai-“OH MY GOD, I HAVE THE POWER! Oh wait…you stabbed me…”
Shu-“Can anyone please put this fire out? Seriously it hurts…”
Extra Guilty fun.
Segai-“I love your hat! Let me thank you with a gangsta style death.”
Inori-“Don’t mind me…I am just hanging around till the end.”
Ayase and Tsugumi service! We should hug them right, Skylion?
Shu-“Now stop making jokes about my arm!” Fosh-“Whatever bro, that purple hand is lame.”
Zombie Gai, why so cool?
So Shu and Haruka aren’t actually related? …Who wants to bet that Gai and Shu are actually related? AHAHAHA only joking (not really). So then, uh, I guess this raises the question of who Mana belonged to. It’s most likely Ouma again, since she was the carrier of the virus, but maybe her whole Shu obsession wasn’t as incestuous as I thought. Well the plot has gone to hell, but DEM ACTION SCENES. Who cares about plot now, just include these every episode from now on. It’s times like this that really remind me of how the entire production is being dragged down by the plot. Though that being said, I enjoyed this episode more than most of the other ones, so maybe the people behind this will pick things up at the end.
Since when does Yahiro not want to sacrifice anyone? Seriously, he was the one who wanted to implicate that whole Void classification thing and then didn’t bother telling Shu that destroying Voids=killing people. Wtf caused this random change of character?! On the other hand, Inori has become the useless damsel in distress again (didn’t this already happen like, 6 or so episodes ago?) and suddenly the evil old guy (I’m not going to bother trying to remember his name) is part of the Ouma family? … Or did Haruka mean ‘brother’ in an affectionate, non-relative way? Well whatever. I’m currently too distracted by heterochromia Gai to care.
Best part of the episode? Shu actually did something. Not only that, but what he did was pretty awesome. Not just the fighting and using his Void, but I was impressed by the fact that he took Souta’s cancer from him. Shu seems to be on a destructive, self-sacrificing route now. While I can’t see him leading a long and happy life with that mindset, it’s definitely a nice change from the guy a couple episodes ago who didn’t want to be involved with anything. Again, I’m not entirely sure what triggered this change in him since he was still emotionally comatose an episode ago, but I appreciate it nonetheless. Maybe Inori being kidnapped round 2 actually did some good this time.
Whoaaaaa this episode!? SOOOOO GOOD! I loved it so much, but the first half was chit chat and story along with who is related and to whom. I am sure I heard Haruka call Shuuichirou her brother, right? And she is actually Shu’s step mother?! So, I guess her flirting and falling all over her “son” doesn’t really count as incest?! Ahahaha surprise! Then again does this development really affect the overall story? Honestly, I don’t think it matters in the end who is related to someone and who really cares? We never got to see much of Shu and Haruka together. However, I guess there might be some emotional attachments even if Shu is not her biological son…
Incest aside for now, Ayase almost got to power up thanks to the void virus, but I already had it in my mind that Shu would use it on himself anyway because he has to save Japan from evil zombie Gai…before I talk about that ending bit, I have to mention Segai. Wow that character was easily the highlight of the episode and he started to remind me of Caster from Fate/Zero, why you ask? Because when he started to get excited, his “insane mad scientist” side of him started to show. Other than going mental, he got a total kill count of two people, but in the end he went out kind of crazy. At least he got to “feel” the power of a void inside of him…damn that sounds so freaking dirty.
And now back to OH MA SHOE’s adventures with voids, finally he got his powers back and grew a totally awesome looking crystal arm. Anyone else like the whole flying around with Ayase’s strike witch legs and using Souta’s camera void mixed in with Yahiro’s sword? That was really amazing and it appears Shu can switch back and forth between void powers now…I was waiting for him to do something like that eventually. So, has Shu taken their voids forever? What happens when he takes Inori’s void? I guess she will be free and probably die, right? Yesssss, I am totally fine with that.
Extra Ayase service.
Shu versus Gai? PREPARE FOR EPIC BATTLE OF VOIDS.
