I don’t think my umbrella is going to offer any protection…
|Are you ready for the final stretch of Lagrange? Well too bad, because it’s here anyways. This show has been way better than I expected and I’ll be sad to see it go… Though, I should probably save my sentimental rant for the last episode. Anyways, while I’m curious on how they’ll end things for the second half. I’m currently more curious about how Madoka will get Midori back… Because you just know that it’s going to happen.|
|No, I am not ready for that quite yet, Kara, but I am ready to see how things end even though after episode ten I can see where things are headed for Lagrange. I guess we have to wait and yes we can rant a lot with the final episode before the break. Yep, eventually Madoka will get back into Midori and kick some ass again!
Plot this week has the beginning of invasion of earth and Madoka enters the battle with Lan and Muginami to defend earth.
Muginami-“The voices in my head are singing today.” Lan-“Sorry, I was practicing for karaoke again.”
We start this episode with Madoka headed to the main base on a boat and she is somehow able to communicate through her machine to talk to Muginami and Lan, but she is nowhere near Midori at the time. However, Moid chimes in to say her Vox is evolving nicely. Whoa, wait a minute!? Are these Vox machines suddenly Pokemon? If so those girls need to train and battle more often. Either way this just proves Madoka is really magical after all, but Lan and Muginami are told to ignore it for now and focus on the battle ahead of them as Villagibro’s massive army starts to invade earth… Meanwhile, Array, Izo and Kirius are preparing their ways of fighting aka triple brofist of awesome space bishie power.
Moid-“This is going to be a fantastic day for a battle.” Tadokoro-“One of these days, I will punch you.”
Izo-“We need a cool catchphrase.” Array-“WE’RE MEN IN MINI-SKIRTS!” Kirius-“……..”
While the space bishies do their cool bonding stuff, Lan and Muginami show off some brand new weapons and they begin to fight the first wave of enemies, but Lan gets overpowered by several machines and Villagibro enters the battle against Muginami. In the meantime, Madoka finally gets inside the base and charges towards her Vox because she is ready to fight. Sadly Asteria has not given any orders to let Madoka pilot Midori right now. Eventually Asteria gives in after she talks to Yoko about the Vox legend once more. Something about Madoka not having a dark heart filled with sadness and all that emotional stuff? Aka being all angsty and what not.
Muginami-“I could go for some cotton candy right now.” Lan-“Yeah, we should get some after this.”
Muginami-“You sure have a large weapon, brother.” Villagibro-“Thats what she said! Oooooooh!!”
Yoko-“The fans demand you let Madoka pilot again.” Asteria-“Fine! But don’t make me say I told you so.”
Asteria-“Fine! Madoka can pilot…I hope you enjoy your world blowing up…idiot.”
Finally, Madoka gets the go ahead from the commander and she enters the fight at last. That is until the large ships in space fire their massive cannons at Madoka’s school, but thanks to some strange twist of fate the space bishies change sides and they actually defend the city. I freaking knew those guys would switch sides; I guess Villagibro needs to find some new friends. So hooray, the town is saved, however Madoka’s machine starts to get all freaky and she starts to hear voices. Madoka starts to panic like crazy after she spots Yoko knocked out lying on the ground bleeding. This panic mode starts to cause Lan and Muginami’s machines to react as they shoot bright beams of light from their mechs… I guess Asteria can say I told you so, huh?
Madoka has a very cute back story in this episode.
Gurania-“Talk to the hand err… I mean blow up that school because I hate school themed anime.”
Kirius-“We saved all those girls, we are so awesome!” Izo-“Girls are so gross…” Array-“I like their outfits though.”
Sad times are ahead for Madoka…DO NOT WANT EMO MADOKA.
Extra Lagrange adventures
Madoka likes watching the Ace ventura movies.
Villagibro-“Can you smell the excitement in the air?” Izo-“Sorry, that burrito is going right through me.”
Lan has her sights set on winning the next sai moe tournament!
Gurania is one sexy looking character, voiced by Megumi Nakajima.
This really is the Best team of all time.
…I can’t believe that Array is still in that maid uniform. I mean, it DOES look great on him and all, but it’s nothing I would rush out to battle in. (…Well if he dies, at least we can say that he died looking fabulous). The space bishies defecting last minute felt kind of… out of place to be honest. Even now I’m not entirely sure of their motives, but I guess this is the effects that episode based around them had. Their partnership with Villa was pretty weak to begin with anyways and I assume they care about the town now (either that or Asteria threatened them with maid uniforms xD). ….Though if that’s not it, then I’m going to be very confused about their motives.
Well, Madoka has Midori again. WHO COULD HAVE SEEN THAT ONE COMING?! Talk about an unexpected plot twist! …Okay, that’s enough sarcasm, but yeah. Having Lan and Mugi fail at fighting alone was to be expected, though having the enemy be able to predict their moves is a nice touch. I mean, who would expect a couple of modern day teenagers to strategise extremely good plans anyways? Sure they’re also aliens, but from what we’ve seen of their characters, strategising is not exactly their thing. …Which makes it a good thing that they’re extremely powerful as a team. …Though apparently that has its downsides.
Well that’s a cliffhanger ending if I ever saw one. Though the entire thing is terribly ironic since Youko was the one who convinced Asteria to let Madoka fly and now because of her, the one thing Asteria wanted to stop is now happening. Irony is a bitch. But hey, at least things are picking up for an epic finale. The Rinne flowers are back and while I’m surprised that Madoka pulled the other two out of control with her, at the same time, I’m not really surprised since they obviously have some deep connection since they could hear her thoughts through the Vox. …I hate to say this, but Asteria was probably right about the whole thing. I guess we’ll find out in the final episode.
What an amazing episode this week and finally Madoka is back fighting in her mech, but yeah what the hell is really going on with her Vox? I mean she can communicate through it and what the hell did Moid mean by her machine is evolving? Damn why don’t you give us more information you, creepy alien?! Anyway, I am sure he loves this new development, because you know he is probably thinking it has more power thanks to Madoka. One thing I learned in this episode when those three Vox machines are fighting together; their powers suddenly increase a whole bunch! I was seriously waiting for an Aquarion moment and then those machines suddenly combine.
Thankfully, these machines don’t combine; however, I bet there are lots of fans who wouldn’t mind seeing such things happen in Rinne no Lagrange. I agree Kara, the space bishies were doing a lot of random things in this episode like blocking that beam from blowing up the city? Then again from the start of this series I had a feeling those three guys would swap teams. But why are they doing that now? I guess they feel what Villagibro is doing is bad for earth? It doesn’t seem like he was all that sad that they changed teams. And Array!? WHY ARE YOU STILL WEARING A MAID UNIFORM? I guess he is super comfortable with it, but I still blame Asteria for messing with his mind.
Speaking of the blonde loli…she is going to be so angry and I bet she will tell everyone I TOLD YOU SO! This is why Madoka should not pilot her Vox right now. I wonder what will happen to Yoko next week!? I really hope she does not die, because we will have a very sad Madoka on our hands with the final episode before the three month break…then again those kinds of tragic events usually make a main character stronger or causes them to lose their minds. Anyway great episode with solid action on the mech fights and I loved Lan and Muginami’s brand new weapons they looked totally badass.
One of the best Asteria looking pictures so far! Skylion would approve.
Oh no! It’s the end of the world of Lagrange as we know it…just kidding, Madoka deals with a possible mental breakdown.
