Apparently the super suspicious guy was actually a good guy all along, and Aki’s sister is the evil super-villain, along with Kimijima Kou. She destroys the Expo and crushes Aki’s robot. Oh, and by the way, Aki’s sister is a hologram.
She’s assisted in her villainy by a loli who was in a coma for ten years and just escaped from the hospital.
The evil plan? To create black holes in space and kill 5 billion people. To do so, they need to create a massive panic by causing illusions and an obelisk that reaches to space, and attain two objectives: capture the JAXA base from Aki’s dad and kidnap Frau.
So yeah, sorry, nice try Robotics; Notes, but this makes no sense. The shit is hitting the fan but we’ve barely caught a whiff of it for the past eighteen episodes and now we’re drowning in shit. This pacing is awful. I remember a while ago I finally decided to enjoy Robotics; Notes for what it was: a high school romantic comedy. Then they turned this into some giant conspiracy and completely forgot about most of the cast. I’m underwhelmed.
The one redemptive part of this episode was the sequence where Aki declared that she never should have had a dream. She finally seems to be realizing that she shouldn’t have put so much stock in her sister. At least that’s what I hope she’ll realize.
