Everyone else seems to be complaining about this scene but I thought it was the best part. Just look at that face. Hilarious!
I think watching it with Spanish subtitles made it even funnier. No gustar bang!
Otherwise, though, this episode was as disappointing as usual. Akiho’s at gunpoint with some guy threatening to kill five billion people, so what does she do? Give a speech about how giant robots will save the world and always triumph over evil. Come on, your giant robot isn’t even there. She learns her sister is being brainwashed and forced to join the murderous cabal, and what is she worried about? Whether her sister still loves giant robots. I mean, I can accept she has a one track mind, but this is just silly.
The best part of course was Frau and the rest of the club coming back. I still don’t understand why they left in the first place though. The most interesting part of this show has always been the interactions among the club members. Let’s face it, Kai and Akiho are the two most boring characters in the entire show. And we just ditched everyone else for several episodes? Not a good plan.
The ending was exceedingly corny, it made me want to barf. Good lord. Everyone works together to build the giant robot and save the world with the power of friendship! How nice.
I discovered that Tanegashima space center is a real thing. Hadn’t even occurred to me that it might be before.
Um… why? Not being able to land added absolutely nothing. Not that I mind that much, it just seemed kind of pointless.
Akiho’s sister was actually kind of cool, back when she was a high school student who clubbed people to death in the back of the head.
At least Akiho knows something about robots. I can confirm this is completely accurate.
