You’ve bloody got to be kidding me.
Are… Are we really supposed to take this seriously? The episode opens with Saphir ‘betraying’ G-Society for some vague indistinct reason and trying to defect to GTO. So of course GTO believes to her and sends their top two agents out to the middle of nowhere to meet her with the escort of a little girl. I see absolutely nothing wrong with this plan. Then, in a surprise twist to this incredibly cunning ploy, it was all just a trick to capture Ascouer. I never saw it coming. How were we supposed to know that the slavishly devoted antagonist wasn’t just betraying her lord and master at the drop of a hat for some vague unexplained reason?
Good lord, have they gotten lazy with the writing here. Hell, they didn’t even need to pretend about anything. Saphir could have just made the call and then everybody jumped the idiot trio as soon as they arrived. Maybe the villains weren’t counting on GTO to be quite that stupid, so were momentarily shocked themselves. And I was hoping that they’d add more angst to the Ascouer pile and do it through the characters being moronic as hell. How wonderful! And now that Qfy’s in G-Society’s hands, Ascouer and Dia are going to make the most incredibly irritating duo imaginable.
At this point, I hope Ascouer goes back to that yaoi cafe from around episode 5 and just spends the rest of the show there drinking away her stupidity.
