I never thought this day would come. The announcement made in this episode could possibly lead to the greatest anime moment of 2012 for me. Greater than Fate/Zero, Hyouka and Ano Natsu no Materu combined. Oh yes, yes, YES!
Okay, let’s see what was accomplished plot-wise. Pirate Hunters suddenly showed up and are blowing up ships left and right out of the 200+ out there right now, but Kane and as we’ll soon find out, many others, were preparing for this and will be ready to face this threat head on. Back at school, Lynn graduated and will soon be joining her beloved Jenny at Space-U despite her spotty past. Lots of snuggle time ahead for her. Hope we’ll get one last kiss before the show ends. Marika had talks about her future after graduating from high school (I know how hard those can be) and Kane recommends her getting a driver’s license. More info during the traditional highlight reel.
Aside from the adult women’s sexy bodies, this is the most fanservice you’ll get from the entire show since I don’t count the beach episode from two weeks ago as legitimate fanservice, which is a good thing.
The point of this image is it shows Gruier’s definitely preparing to protect the “Parfait of Destiny”. she has come too far and had far too many intimate moments with her parfait to not do anything. That’s how much she loves the glorious parfait.
Here we have Captain Stone of the Big Catch crew. Marika had a plan, a trick if you will: To disguise the Bentenmaru as the Big Catch and escort a ship, that secretly happens to be another pirate ship (The real BC). This leads to a conversation about possible alliances between pirates and the government worrying about such a possibility.
After the PH take out the BC and are ready to attack the Bentenmaru, another mystery ship appears, captained by some masked dood. Hmm, Kane also mentioned something about blood ties. Could it be… “HIM”? Also, he reminds me of Mister Miracle from Battle Athletes Victory.
And now, the most important part of the entire episode. Lynn graduated and appointed Marika as the new president of the Yacht Club. I’ll give you two guesses as to who the runner up/vice president is…
“sobbing tears of joy”: I knew it. I knew my dearest Sasha was destined for greatness. Soon, she’ll be the next harem queen. Dreams do come true…”sobs some more”. I’m so happy right now. If you could all see my smile right now…oh yes, yes, YES, YES! Please writers, show her rise to stardom on screen. Don’t hide it from me. I want to savor each and every second of her success.
Oh, and next week, everyone prepares to kick PH ass and maybe we’ll learn a bit more about the masked pirate.
