When last we left our gay gyaru heroine she was confronted with the dilemma of her beloved half-robot crush possibly having been entranced by another. Let’s find out how she responded.
We followed Yuzu and Shattered Himeko on their way to Mei-Tron’s office to invite her on a lunch date with the Shattered One rubbing salt on Yuzu’s wound all the way. Unfortunately for both ladies the mechanical one was busy.
While begrudgingly having lunch together our savior joined Yuzu for some munching. She got some tickets to the amusement park and offered Yuzu and a few others to come along. Yuzu and Shattered Himeko took this chance to ask Mei-Tron on a date. Yuzu was about to jot it down on her calendar when she noticed tomorrow being the 15th of a certain month…
Back home Yuzu found a letter addressed to Mei-Tron from Professor Father. She found her in the shower and offered to read it but Mei’s human side rushed over to stop her. Instead she later coerced Mei to come along and visit her dad tomorrow.
The next day when Shattered Himeko learned the two had gone out she took it better than I thought she would.
On their way they got into a crowded train and were forced to stand really close together. Yuzu’s breathing got a reaction from Mei-Tron so she took it as an opportunity to get an advantage over Himeko. Mei-Tron asked what the big idea was and she told her of the Shattered One’s words…
Her human side didn’t take kindly to Yuzu’s actions. To make up for it she bought her a crepe.
The bright side was she got another sweet treat alongside the crepe.
Unfortunately for Yuzu the Shattered One was guided by the Seven Lily Deities to their location and was about to DELETE Aihara of Yuzu but was stopped by Mei-Tron who was like “This unit does not recall ever forming a consensual contract with the former Drill Sergeant. Do not misinform Yuzu.”
Afterward the sisters visited Yuzu’s dad’s…grave. He passed away when she was three. She introduced Mei-Tron to her and robo-hermana in turn paid her respects. She then told Yuzu that she hadn’t ever opened the letters Professor Father sent out of fear of the messages within. Yuzu assured her she’d help the two patch up their relationship.
This response got the most human smile out of Mei yet. Seeing this hit Yuzu HARD! So much so she had a private cry and put her hunger for buffalo mecha wings on hold. “What Mei needs isn’t love but a family”. As Yuzu cried her heart out Mei-Tron’s body temperature reached critical levels”
The next day she collapsed from a fever due to overexerting/overworking herself. Himeko offered to take her place but Mei harshly scolded her. Yuzu stepped in to calm things down and told Himeko to take care of business while she took Mei to the nurse’s office.
When Mei woke up she wanted to get back to work but Yuzu wouldn’t let her. She told her the reason she worked hard was to become the new principal. When Yuzu said “why not the professor” she agreed and calmed down. Mei eagerly anticipated that day…just like Yuzu anticipated the day she would think of her as much as she thought about the professor.
Yuzu also told Mei-Tron to patch things up with Himeko, whose Shattered Brilliance disappeared when Mei-Tron basically rejected her advances. At least they’re still good friends. Meanwhile Yuzu lamented not being able to chase after Mei-Tron as a potential lover for the time being but knew it was for the best. She hit the restart button. After school there was someone at the door..,
Tune in next time to see what Mei-Tron will do now that her esteemed creator had returned.
No “Serious notes” this episode as I don’t have much to add. It was a good episode.
