Lapis Re:LiGHTs Episode 10: Storm the Castle

When we last left LiGHTs they agreed to go meet Tiara at her castle.

Serious Eliza

This wasn’t the Eliza we saw in Tia’s flashbacks but a more stern and serious princess who also liked to sneak out and watch Tia every now and then. I still think the hooded girl is Eliza.

Anna the Head Maid

Anna. The Head Maid, most likely. We learned Tia and Eliza’s Mom was at an important Witch’s Council meeting. Tia was like “Of course. She’s never around”.

Tiara at the dining table

Looking good Tia. Eliza was all like “I told you going to the Magic Academy was a bad idea” but Tia refused to give up trying to convince her otherwise. Eliza said having aspirations wasn’t enough to become a witch. When Tia asked why Eliza wanted to become one she kinda dodged the subject using her royal duties as the reason.

We got a flashback hinting Tiara’s tiara may be more than a cute accessory or that’s what I noticed. Plus Eliza became colder since then. I’m sure that’s unrelated to the tiara.

Three Days

Three days later the other LiGHTs hotties arrived at the kingdom, three of them worse for wear.

Infiltrating the castle

Rose tried using her royal lineage to request an audience with Tia but no luck. After some discussion Lavie was like “Let’s sneak inside”.

Ashley's plan

Ashley and Lavie are an excellent comedy couple but we already knew that. I won’t go over our heroines infiltration. It must be seen to be believed.

Also Rory Old Bean. I can’t be the only one who had “Hyrule Castle” from A Link to the Past/Link Between Worlds playing in my head during the whole infiltration, can I? Help a brother out yo. It was so good.

Eliza is pissed

Unfortunately our heroines were eventually spotted. They did very well though. However, when Eliza stepped in…pants were wet.

Tiara still feeling downLynette's response

Eliza was cold but not heartless. The gang reunited with Tia and were ready to welcome their leader back but Tia still lacked confidence. Lynette said it best. Tia wanted to become a witch who was there for the people like Eliza but during the Orchestra she enjoyed it so much she felt ashamed because it was like she did it for herself. The gang were like “Don’t be ashamed. Your happiness brings joy to others so it’s all good”. The gang’s words were enough to restore Tia’s desire to return and the gang were ready to rumble once more. One more thing though. The gang were set to continue studying at another school but Tia wanted to perform in an Orchestra again. They replied with “Let’s get better so that one day we’ll perform an Orchestra so amazing the Academy will regret kicking us out!”.

One cute castle relishing montage later and we ended the episode with Chloe dropping a bombshell revelation to Angelica. We’ll have to wait till next week to find out what she said. Great stuff as usual. I still predict the show will end with LiGHTs leading their fellow gay mages into battle to save the town terrorized by Magic Monsters and they’ll take notes from Symphogay singing their way to victory.

    It was a fun little romp through the castle, also proved that the royal family needs seriously better defense measures.

      No more better than Hyrule’s really.

        4 aspiring witch teenagers got into the inner parts of the castle. If they had been actual assassins, then I don’t think Eliza would have lived. They also kinda made a path straight in for others to follow. The other fact that someone who last used to use the castle as her “stomping grounds” many years ago, could still have a good idea of where the guards would be, shows poor security in that they haven’t done a good job of continually switching up how shifts go. Showing an even more glaring hole in their defense. If I were a chaotic neutral thief, I’d be thinking “they’re just asking to be robbed” XD

    Yes, seeing Rosetta and her friends sneak in the castle and eventually getting caught is halarious. At least they are together again.

    Still, I have a big feeling that Eliza might be behind the plan to expel Tiara so she can go home. If that is really the case, I feel that the academy’s reputation will go down, especially how unfairly they are treated. I guess we’ll find out sooner or later.

    I did have a Zelda tune playing in my head during the infiltration, but it was the Ocarina of Time Hyrule Castle Courtyard theme.
    I’m starting to think that Lavie is a lot more intelligent than she – or anyone else, for that matter – realises.
    A really fun episode.

    The girls use better their powers to enter the house than in the Stage.

    Aww, a sleeping scene should be an obligatory part of every anime with cute girls, along with the swimsuit scene. I love how adorable they look sleeping.

    Another great ep this week!

    Tia looked absolutely gorgeous this week. Just wow! Her hair, that dress, it all came together for a wonderful result. Like generally she’s really pretty, but this week, wow she was on a whole new level.

    The castle infiltration scene was funny. Rose low key bending those bars with her raw strength, wow I didn’t think she could do that! Also Lavie just crouching on the floor right in the middle of the hallway, that cracked me up. Speaking of Lavie, she had a lot of great moments this week. Another small thing that was just really funny to me was when the four of them were sitting and eating and Lavie reaches over with her straw and take a sip out of Ashley’s drink, only to realize it’s hot. For some reason that really made me laugh.

    Also we finally get to see some more of the famous Eliza this week. I’m kinda wondering if she’ll have them get back into the Academy somehow, but she’s pretty against Tia becoming a Witch, so probably not.

    And finally, cliffhanger ending! I wonder what Chloe said, I’m guessing something to do with those Magical Monsters they keep alluding to. Especially at the start of this ep with all those soldiers heading out. Whatever it is, it’ll all make for a thrilling final few eps!

      Oh yes. Tia looked amazing in her royal dress.

      Rose’s magic is to go Super Saiyan Blue so that means her signature abilities are superhuman strength and endurance but she can’t use her powers for long periods.

      Lavie is a treasure.

      It all depends on the reason Eliza’s acting so cold.

      Oh I’m certain the finale will revolve around saving the terrorized town.

    I second Ocarina of Time vibes from the castle infiltration scene.

    The lack of Garnet this episode gives Rose major points in the best girl category. That and Rose being the type of girl I always fall for.

    The weak security must be so Eliza’s girlfriend can sneak in regularly. She just wasn’t planning on Tiara’s girlfriend sneaking in the same way.

    Rose using her super strength to get what she wants… rawr.

  9. that was a good Episode i was thinking in Ocarina of time, A Link to the Past, but in assassins creed and splinter cell too.
    You theory About (town terrorized by Magic Monsters) is true, according to the synopsis of episode 11 a horde of magical monsters is heading to the city and Chloe announced all the units will make an orchestra during the next festival.
