After the frosty chaos in the previous episode the boats got to chill a little bit.
When we last left the cutie boats Ayanami literally took a bullet for Shoukaku and Zuikaku. Luckily Javelin and Laffey saved her in the nick of time. She was taken to the Azur Lane base.
Speaking of her rescuers they were “scolded” for their actions and were “punished” by watching over the “prisoner of war”.
More Extra Smol Boats.
Laffey and Javelin took Ayanami on a tour of the base. More on that in a bit. During the tour she was reunited with a familiar fellow imperial. Akashi was like “A good businesswoman sells her wares anywhere”. On a more serious note they discussed the dangers of Akagi’s coalition with the Sirens, which we all know how that went for her.
A closer look at Loli Nagato’s girlfriend.
Naturally after the chaos in the arctic the Sakura Empire were in a state of panic. They had no idea what Azur Lane were doing to Ayanami, Akagi “sank” and Kaga (for her Akagi) planned on proceeding with Project Orochi. Iron Blood considered taking center stage. That and Z23 wants to find Ayanami for…reasons.
As their tour continued Laffey’s true intentions were revealed when the mega British Boats and Unicorn drove by. Laffey Harem confirmed. I’m pretty sure she’d gladly welcome Z23 into the love nest.
I won’t mention why but keep a close eye on Ark Royal throughout the episode.
Throughout the episode Azur Lane higher ups, including her British soul mate, discussed the Black Cube acting up and Enterprise’s connection. She was researched but no signs of her other self were found. Meanwhile she was more confused than ever. That evening Ayanami walked into her. Ayanami wondered all day why Azur Lane were so nice to her despite them being on opposing sides. She wondered what the point was of all the fighting. Enterprise asked if she wanted to continue fighting and she was like “I do not know. What I do know is I dislike fighting”. Enterprise was like “Me too kid”. Naturally Belfast just so happened to pass by and overhear the discussion. Belfast and Illustrious thought it was up to Enterprise to find a way out of the darkness. Thanks to Unicorn reminding them of when she saved her Belfast got a small glimmer of hope for her Murican stud muffin.
Good chill episode.
