Is your body lady for this new episode of Rinne no Lagrange!?
|Welcome back readers are you ready for more epic encounters with Madoka, Lan and Muginami this week? I know I sure am lady! So the previous episode gave us a strange cliffhanger with the reveal of Yurikano. So who is she really? Is she a clone or possibly the real deal that just so happens to be suffering from extreme memory loss? I really hope we find out the truth this week, but what do you think so far Kara?|
|Lagrange was one of the anime I looked forward to every week back in winter, but is it’s return ever something. I look froward to each episode even more now since they amped up the storyline. I’m sure my huge theory behind the ‘rinne’ was probably proven wrong with the revelations this episode, but I still want to see where this thing ends. …Other than it’s obviously going to end in yuri.|
Aliens dudes and peaceful chats?
Dizelmine-“I swear if you call me bro one more time…” Vilajulio-“Sorry bro I wasn’t listening…”
Asteria-“Whoa! Are they going to kiss and stuff?” Tadokoro-“Uhhh…” Moid-“Yes! Err..”
Fosh // So the theme of this episode follows both Vilajulio and Dizelmine for the most part because they are meeting on earth to discuss a possible peace treaty, but Asteria plays a trick on them and they end up trapped in an elevator together. Damn what a sneaky little girl…well she is the “leader” technically so I expected something like this from her. As the guys are trapped, they start to talk about the past which reveals they attended the same school and I bet Vilajulio was the student that never did his homework and always borrowed Dizelmine’s notes. I WANT A SPIN OFF SERIES NOW! Anyway do you buy into the whole thing of Le Garite wanting to use the Vox machines for the good of the universe or is that a straight up lie? Honestly at this point I can’t peg any side as the true villain right now; however, I feel there is something about Moid or some reason he has BAD GUY written all over him! So what do you think? Who do you side with in this argument? Le Garite or De Metiro and why of course there is that third faction that has yet to make a move.
Kara // What do you do when two kings of different planets are trying the destroy one another in war? Well according to Asteria, you lock them in an elevator and assume they won’t kill each other. A bold move by our favourite perverted loli, but it seemed to have worked out in the end and we saw an interesting side to Dizelmine there. With Lagrange making him out to be THE bad guy of the series, it’s nice to know that he was actually friends with Villa at one point or another. Maybe they could have even made up if Yurikano hadn’t interfered (it was totally Moid’s fault that she did too). I was a bit surprised at how hostile Villa was though towards Yurikano. Your little sister (who you thought was dead) is miraculously alive and you yell at her? Villaguillio seemed just a liiiiiittle bit too angry there. I wonder if there’s some reason behind that.
Yuri yuri or Yurikano?
Vilajulio-“Hooray! You are back my cute little sister!”
Vilajulio-“Eh?! WHAAAATT!?” Yurikio-“I don’t wanna hug you!”
Tough break there Vilajulio maybe you will win next time?
Fosh // While the space bros deal with their own business, Yurikano makes an impromptu visit to earth and by visit I mean crash her mecha on the beach…yeah…she is NOT the pilot she once was! I found it funny that Madoka was critical of her piloting skills, but hey she does admit she isn’t any better. After crashing on the beach Izo, Array and Kirius spot her and freak out because they assumed she was dead! I know one of those three had deep feelings for her in the past right? So after that mess was cleared up the local authorities escort Yurikano back to the base and Vilajulio pays her a visit and unfortunately for him she has no memory of her brother. After that scene I started to feel so bad for him! I mean can you just imagine having a missing sibling return to your life only to have them forget all about you? Sadly there really isn’t much he can do at this point for her and thankfully they did reveal that she was the real thing and not some clone. One thing is for certain though she is suffering from something mental because Vilajulio pointed out she is acting like a child and calling herself Yuri Yuri? Then again maybe after that short meeting something might trigger in her mind about her long lost brother? We can only hope something like that happens soon.
Kara // I wasn’t expecting them to go into just who Yurikano was so soon, but I appreciate the fact that they’re explaining it right away. Am I wrong about that other girl being Madoka’s past self? Since Dizelmine called Yuri his trump card, that could mean that she can also pilot a Vox ( …Or maybe he’s using her against Villaguillio since she seemed incapable of piloting a regular robot). If that’s true then maybe the girl who appeared with Madoka is not her past self and instead, Madoka shares some kind of weird psychic connection with Yuri. …I think that’s the more likely route at the moment. Though if that’s true, I really wonder what the rinne in the title refers to. That’s not really a normal term people throw around. As for Yuri herself, it’s a good thing someone (I think it was fragb85) informed me last episode in the comments about the prequel manga revolving around the bishie trio and Yuri. Their reactions this episode (or at least Izo’s) make so much more sense now.
Adventure time with Madoka, Lan and Muginami
Muginami-“I have the perfect idea!” Lan-“Does it involve yuri again?” Madoka-“LET’S DO THIS!”
Madoka-“YO YO YO! I LOVE JAPAN YO!” Muginami-“Hey yall! Don’t mind little old me.”
Fosh // So what do the girls think of Yurikano suddenly appearing? They are kind of like us right now! They assume something sneaky is going on with her arrival. I know Muginami especially has issues with her popping up, but thankfully she knows she isn’t Vilajulio’s biological sister because I can just picture a different outcome if she went full on yandere mode against the real sister. Lan on the other hand feels bad for Muginami and Madoka just wants to confront the girl to ask questions. However, Yurikano doesn’t know who Madoka is…I mean what did she really expect? Even her real brother had issues getting her to remember him. So what do these girls end up doing now? Easy answer right there, you just throw on some weak ass disguise and act like another person! I seriously could not stop laughing when Madoka and Muginami popped up with those new hairstyles and outfits…wow…those girls are brilliant aren’t they?
Kara // So there wasn’t much on Mado-chan this episode (or Lan or Muginami for that matter), but she does seem to be somewhere in the centre of the conflict. …Somehow. Or at least Villaguillio and Dizelmine have deemed her important. That being said, Madoka totally did that excited tourist girl act a bit TOO well. I’m interested to see how she acts around Dizelmine (because you KNOW they’re going to meet). She was rather hostile to Villa until this season, so I wonder if she’ll be the same with Dizelmine. Though Lan seems to get along better with her older brother (appearance-wise anyways) as opposed to Mugi being strangled in front of Madoka when Villaguillio and her first met.
Yurikano-“OOOOOOOH! I LOVEEEEE THE BEACH!” Array-“Uhh…” Izo-“HOLY CRAP!”
Something for the girls or guys to download later.
Dizelmine-“We don’t eat the plastic remember?” Yurikano-“But it looks so good I MUST eat it!”
Well you have to get rid of the giant net first bro!
Fosh // What an amazing episode of Rinne no Lagrange this week! I mean damn they really are building up towards something amazing right now, but of course they are because this is the final half of the series even though thinking about that makes me sad I still enjoy watching this series every week. So what about are you? Are you excited for this series like me? I certainly hope so! Those facts asides there were lots of new developments for the plot this week especially with the ending with Vilajulio staring at his mecha with an evil looking expression. I wonder if that is a new machine or his older model from season one? Not to mention the preview! Madoka and Yurikano slapping each other…what is going on there? I HAVE TO KNOW! Also fufufu expect some bath shots next time! Oh yeah we got a new ending this week…it…sure was something…different? Yurikano staring at us forever!
Kara // So another episode of season 2, another episode of drama. While some of the older characters are being thrown into the background (Izo and group seems like they barely even tried to go after Yuri), the newer characters are taking the spotlight. There’s been a rather large reveal pretty much every episode so far, so I wonder if Lagrange can keep this up. I hope they do, since this season is already definitely worth watching. Imagine if they can keep this up. So I’m super curious about Yuri and Madoka (and how the two are connected), so next episode looks like it will be a good one. …I hope they use the new ED that they used this episode as well. Rapping Madoka is cute, but this new one reminds me of season one’s OP and ED more.
Enjoy this artwork shot of the week!
Madoka, Lan and Muginami enjoy some bath time together in spaaceeeeee!
