Wow. This show just keeps getting better and better.
It was obvious that this wasn’t going to turn out well since the Federation let the older sister come back. And indeed, it didn’t: an agreed-to annexation to prevent war. I guess the princess is marrying the creepy guy. (an aside: they said he was the ruler of the Federation, I thought he was just the Empress’ representative?)
Now, at first I thought that the older sister was doing all this to protect Millia. But with the way she disowned Millia and ordered her troops to fire on her, I have my doubts. Even Milla thinks her sister has abandoned her. With that said, the princess did seem to smile when Millia had escaped. Perhaps she has mixed feelings, but is putting her country first.
Alvis is back! I must say, I liked her old costume better.
I’m not a fan of the way she was introduced either. Her role in this episode consisted of having Dio say, “She’s a kind girl,” and herself saying that Millia is just like her. Show, don’t tell, guys.
And I wonder who the person close to her that died was?
Teddy, Defend the Kingdom!
Dio vs. Darth Maul
Dio in a lightsaber battle?! Hell yeah!
If there’s one thing this show does well, it’s making things exciting. That battle was intense! As was Fam’s escape, the downing of the Sylvius, the standoff between the sisters: well, ok, pretty much everything.
