Hooooooo nelly, this show keeps getting more epic and darker (For better or worse depending on your tastes) as BRS faces her toughest enemy yet, Cyberzombies! This is episode 5.
WARNING! DO NOT READ THIS UNTIL AFTER YOU’VE SEEN THE EPISODE!
BRS and DM have faced each other before and DM lost. This time however, she made a phone call to a certain cybernetic army of the undead from outer space to aid her in total domination. With BGS’ plans set in motion, DM unleashes the power of Warhammer 40k’s Necron army in her long awaited rematch with BRS.
Meanwhile in the real world…Yomi’s in veeeeery bad shape. She gives Yuu a matching bracelet like Mato’s…made from her hair. Mato finally notices her lover’s agony in arts and crafts as she continues to cut her hair. Her mom picks her up. Mato hears her classmates call Yomi crazy and it pisses her off but when Kagari 2.0 said Yomi broke and her heart died, Mato bitch slapped K to little effect, only the groupies defended her.
Back at Mato’s room, we read more pages of The Tiny Bird story and learn the story’s tragic ending (I need to look that book up). Mato falls asleep and witnesses the grueling battle between BRS and DM as Strength continues watching. She awakens from the nightmare and desperately alters the book’s ending.
The next day CoD calls Mato to her lair. She asks Mato if she wants to save Yomi. Mato doesn’t know what she means but she obviously does…CoD proceeds to temporarily strangle her. “You want to save her? Then why don’t you die her.” It’s 100% clear now that Mato and BRS are CoD’s main targets. Lastly she tells Mato to head to the art room for a surprise.
Hoo boy, things get even crazier after that. As Mato is in a trance during practice, she notices Yuu’s absent and asks everyone where she is. The weird part is that none of the girls knows who Yuu is. Shocked yet again, Mato reminisces of how distant from everyone except Mato Yuu has been since elementary. Then she goes further by saying she barely remembers Yuu herself. As she tries to remember where Yuu’s house supposedly is, there’s only a river at the location.
Yuu then appears and tells Mato everything about the Other World and her connection to BRS. Well this is a new way for Mato to discover BRS’ existence. Also, she explains how once the alter egos of the girls are defeated, all the pain, suffering, grief and love they feel vanishes, forgetting all the pain they felt and the one responsible. Mato now knows what must be done to save both their sanity and love.
Mato rightfully says it’s wrong for someone’s feelings to be decided through a fight to the death and it’s best to talk things over. Then… Yuu confesses her feelings for Mato and wants to help Mato save Yomi for she agrees with Mato’s way of thinking. She then kisses Mato, transporting her to the other world, continuously warning Mato of the risks
