Fam… how do you expect to win a battle without weapons?
Fortunately Fam gains a bit of intelligence before the battle starts, and takes a weapon with her. But she refuses to fire at the critical moment, and one of her allies dies. Does this cause Fam any remorse? Not at all. She decides to drop her weapon right at that instant. She runs back, grabs her grappling hook, and decides to steal the enemy flagship in the middle of the battle without any weapons.
In the high point of the episode, Fam’s strategy is completely ineffective. Fortunately someone on the other side comes over to Augusta, and the battle is won.
In a comparable feat of obliviousness, Augusta isn’t even aware she is in the middle of a battle until it’s over.
What is the Point?
Aside from acting like an idiot, Fam (and our other main characters) take the sidelines for this episode in favor of two childhood friends from Ades. The story between them was ok… but really, I just don’t get why they’re focusing on these two. It kind of feels like we’re just killing time until the final battle now. Before we fight Luscinia we have to face the mid-boss. Except it’s not even “us” (Fam, Giselle, and Millia) facing the mid-boss, it’s someone else’s army.
I just feel like there are a million better things we could be spending our time on. Like Giselle and Dian yuri hijinks.
