More somberness as we learn more about what is going on.
First of all let’s talk a bit more about Yayaka who had regained consciousness. We learned that she was the only survivor of an experiment conducted by the Woo Tan Clan to create super soldiers to gather fragments. She would then tag along with the Twin Dolls (who as expected aren’t human).
Speaking of the Twins they along with some Woo Tan Clan robot soldiers stormed the Flip Flap base. They stated the obvious to Cocona, about her having an amorphous fragment inside her left leg and them wanting it. Yayaka held them off while PapiCoco escaped. Hope she’ll be alright.
Well this explains why Papika said Mimi’s name that one time.
Long story short both Papika (full name Papikana) and Mimi were most likely also part of the Woo Tan Clan’s child experiments to gain access to Pure Illusion. Papika (and a younger Dr Salt) helped put a smile on Mimi and she gifted Papika by having her be the first person to see Pure Illusion with her.
Cocona was angry at everyone because she felt like everyone had lied to her all this time. Papika didn’t want to tell her the truth about Mimi because it would hurt Cocona but Cocona thought it was because she didn’t love her as much as Cocona did. while escaping in a tunnel they predictably went through different paths.
What surprised me was not the reveal of Mimi being Cocona’s mom (and Salt being the dad. That was obvious) but grandma having been a Woo Tan Clan robot all this time. That explains why she was so laid back about Cocona going to hang out with a “friend” for long periods of time.
Huh. There was an amorphous (or perhaps Mimi) fragment on top of the WTC spire. This could also mean the third Doll was created using a Mimi fragment.
As far as “our wish” is concerned there’s still hope. If it didn’t work out with the mom, why not the daughter? I mean she’s somehow stayed the same all this time. Maybe we’ll get an answer to that next episode.
