I really would like to go into detail with highlights and stuff like that but really this episode was one mega epic battle of the ages. I’ll do my best to cover what I can. Also it was my birthday yesterday but unlike previous years I do not have any Birthday Special post planned this year so this episodic will have to do.
Some viewers wondered why Karin had yet to get a spot in the show’s OP up till this week. I told those people it was because she had yet to get her own henshin sequence. She got one this week, thus finally getting her spot in the OP. Rejoice Karin fans!
So the remaining Vertex were like “You know how the old school tradition of superhero shows is that one or two monsters attack once a week? SCREW THAT! We’re hitting those girls with everything we’ve got in one final assault!” Basically the remaining 7 of the 12 Vertex attack our heroines at once.
Our heroines fight well until the Vertex merge together and things get rough quick. What are our heroines to do?
Why transform into “Super Megatacular Priestess Mode” of course. Yeah it’s called Mankai but my codename for their super mode is better.
You know…tch…there are internet fans out there who say that it does not matter how good a game/book/cartoon/whatever else is, if the graphics/art/animation is subpar then it is not worth buying on DVD/Blu-Ray/Paperback. I think these people either work in a company that specializes in one of these media forms or they are geeks to the core. Whichever. I dunno. To those people my response to not placing graphics/art/animation as a high priority or “make or break” when purchasing a product is the following example:
“LESBIAN SUPERHEROINES ON BOARD A GIANT SUPER MEGA SPIDER WHEELCHAIR OF JUSTICE FLYING INTO SPACE TO TAKE DOWN A GARGANTUAN ALIEN TRIANGLE SOUL THINGY!”
Of course Yuna does not get left out of the Super Megatcular Priestess transformation loop.
Seriously the entire YunaTogo vs giant alien soul segment is full of win…so much win.
You know what’s funny? It’s not Karin tearing up and worrying about her friends’ well-being. That was icing on the cake of a super megatcular episode. What’s funny is that she alone did not get to transform into a Super Megatcular Priestess. That is yet another hint besides several others (Like there obviously being a mother ship/Vertex leader and this only being episode 5) that the invasion is far from over.
So yeah. What more can I say?
