Why are artificial humans always seven years old?
As has been the case with most of these episodes, this one went in a couple strange directions, which makes me wonder just exactly how much tequila the director has before he sits down to get the storyboards in order. The girls getting bumped up to bodyguard some little girl… fine,
Q-Feuille Qeuille randomly revealing that she’s seven years old… a little strange. Taking a tour through the facility and seeing all the men looking at porn, a little weird. The naked men posing… very bizarre. Insert song about smiles and sunshine, also a bit suspicious. Loli sleeping through explosions, then waking up and sticking her tongue down Ascoeur’s throat… well, once again we’re somewhere down the rabbit hole.
Not all that bad of an episode though, but I can’t help but be a little annoyed with how poorly this used its music, especially after Kampfer did so well earlier. I don’t really care much for
Rubis Cheetara, but Saphir’s all right. It wasn’t really explained what they were doing (aside from going after Ascoeur and Qeuille), or what the deal was with Lia (Dia? Enunciate, dammit) and her magic kissing, but as with the first episode, they did a decent enough job with the action. I really hope that Q has something more up her sleeves than throwing minibombs, and I’m also wondering just exactly how a lightsaber breaks, but those are questions best saved for Star Wars conventions and internet forums.
Q-feulle and Ascoeur get bumped up to ES members and given the mission of bodyguarding the sheltered little girl Lia. After wandering around and finding lots of naked men or men looking at naked women, then go outside to enjoy the sun. They’re attacked by a pair of women, but the two aren’t after Lia. Ascouer can’t shift far/fast enough to get away from Rubis, and let’s face it, Q’s offense kind of sucks. Lia eventually wakes up from her nap and kisses Ascoeur, powering her up greatly. Ascoeur manages to break Rubis’ nail-sword, but the two retreat when the authorities finally get there. Then just a little wrapup with the chief while ES Member Lia naps.
