Assault Lily Bouquet Episode 10: For the Lily With a Sealed Away Heart

No fancy intro this time. We’re jumping right in.

Riri lost her heart

After losing her daughter and locking away her heart the higher ups still had the nerve to imprison her for (probably) a week because she disobeyed orders. Just like in real life, right folks? Dicks. After a heartbreaking intro and a scene of Lilies discussing the unfairness of Riri’s punishment we joined Yuyu visiting her wife. She noticed her trademark clover hairpin was missing. It was lost at sea.

Puffy Yuyu

Naturally Kaede was nearby and was like “You gotta depend on your teammates more Yuyu. Cut the lone wolf crap”. Yuyu did her best to ask the team to help her look for the sacred hairpin. Kaede tried playing the tough girl but we all knew she’d have done the same thing herself.

Fumi and Miriam exhausted

One problem. The ocean was vast (obviously) and it was going to be like finding a needle in a haystack. Team YuRi agreed to combine their skills to improve their search. It of course wasn’t easy to find the right combo.

Fumi resting on Miriam's bun

Convenient super bun is convenient.

Miriam X Moyu

I was hoping for the longest time Moyu X Miriam Hildegard Von Gropius were a thing. Looks like I got my wish.

Riri remembers Yuri

Whyyyyyyyyyyyy?

Kaede and Shiori

Suspicious Kaede is suspicious.

Lilies came to help Team YuRi

“No Lily left behind. Riri’s one of us”.

With the combined powers of so many Lilies they were able to find the sacred hairpin. However…

Kaede spots somethingKaede busted

Basically Kaede found Riri’s hairpin days earlier but it was a mess. To surprise Riri she asked Shiori, seen above, to borrow her workshop and craft a new hairpin in secret. Once finished she didn’t want everyone’s work to go to waste so she threw it out in the ocean one night and helped everyone find it the day after. All this for Riri…who immediately noticed it wasn’t the original.

Kaede's reward

Still, it all worked out in the end. Good for you Kaede, for a moment…

Yuyu: Stand up so I can properly thank you too.

Kaede: N-no need. It was all for Riri.

Yuyu: I want to thank you as her Schutzengel, and her special person.

Kaede: Haha. It’s like you’re telling me “She’s mine, so back off”, aren’t you?

Yuyu: Exactly.

Kaede: Wh-what!?

Tasuza: You fought well but it’s time to finally admit defeat.

Riri lets it all out

WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!?

These last two episodes hurt me more than all 3 dark episodes of Elaina combined.

Before and after the ED we got another bombshell. During another of the Director and Seitokai meetings Moyu discovered a strange formula in the Dainslef, Yuyu’s old CHARM, that possibly controlled the huge Huge. The formula was written by Misuzu, her old Schutzengel.

Mizusu the Spectre

Could the Misuzu we’ve seen all this time not entirely be Yuyu’s PTSD induced hallucination but a magie specter? Maybe she inscribed her soul into Dainslef using magie or Yuyu’s new CHARM and that’s how she’s been with her all this time? Guess we’ll find out next time.

    Kaede, eres única en tu tipo, no por nada su nombre fue tendencia en Twitter Japón, pero creo que todo lo que pienso de ella lo voy a escribir en el review final.

  3. This episode was pain and I nearly cried too. I was heartbroken since the last ep. I guess I kind of know why they did it, but I also wish they hadn’t. I just wanted the happy family to stay together always. But oh well I guess. That was awesome of Kaede though and I’m glad she got her moment, but I loved that Yuyu was not hesitant to claim her wife. I thought it was really cute. I’m definitely curious about what the deal is about the ending, so I guess we will see next week.

    P.S. So happy about Miriam x Moyu. I thought it was possible, but wasn’t expecting basically a confirmation this ep, so that was one happy thing to come out of the suffering at least.

      Riri’s pain hurt my kokoro. The three didn’t deserve to suffer like that but like our main couple we must push forward and do all we can for a brighter future.

      SO HAPPY Moyu X Miriam Hildegard Von Gropius are all but confirmed now. Bless.

      Yuyu straight up standing her ground was amazing just like Kaede, period.

      We’ll find out more next time hopefully

    This episode is definitely a downer, but it’s kind of cruel for the academy punish Riri while she has recently lost someone close. It almost as if she was heading on the same path. but it’s good that the team found Riri’s hair tie. Yes, I know Kaede made another and obviously wants to find it to get even closer to Riri, but it’s obvious that she really cared. Thankfully, Riri didn’t keep the grief in, although its heartbreaking.

    Still,, I wonder about Misuzu. The mystery deepens I guess.

    Another Fantastic Episode.

    Sad Riri is just extremely wrong. My heart ached.

    Moyu X Miriam Hildegard Von Gropius is great. Gropi continues to be such a cutie!

    Kaede saving the day! Bless her.

    So excited to see what’s next!

    Kaede is incredible… I want her to find a cute girl to love.

    Yuyu is also incredible, and pouting Yuyu is such a blessing.

    Miriam is fantastic. And everyone working together was so touching.

    This is building up to be a real mystery. I so hope for a happy ending with no more tragedy.

    As sad as this ep was, and it was very sad and tough to watch, I liked how they still gave it a positive vibe too. All the Lilies banning together to help look for the hairpin and the antics they went through to get that done, it helped balance out the sadness and I really liked that about this ep. Not that having a full on 24 minutes of pure sadness is bad or anything, and I totally wouldn’t have minded if that happened, but still finding something to be positive about was a very nice touch.

    Kaede once again showing why she’s such a great girl. Even though Riri knew right away the hairpin wasn’t the same one, it’s the fact that Kaede went through all the trouble to make her a new one and give it to her in hopes that it would brighten her mood, that’s what was so nice about it. Sure it didn’t play out exactly as she had hoped it would but that effort she put in was admirable. Same goes for all the other Lilies who searched on the beach too. Even though they may be rivals, they still look out for each other when they need it most.

    Interesting ending this week, had a feeling something like this might happen but I’ll see how it plays out instead of making wild guesses that will most likely end up wrong.

      The light moments alleviated the heartbreaking sorrow that was Riri’s unfair suffering. Damn those bigwigs. Fortunately everyone was there to help bring back her smile. So cool seeing everyone go the extra mile for their teammate. No Lily left behind!

      Kaede again showed us why she’s the MVP of the show. Hopefully she’ll find a girl who appreciates her…provided she gives up on Riri.

      Yuyu defending what’s hers was great too.

      Gotta wait and see what the truth is.

    Losing Yuri left Riri a hollow shell of who she used to be, which was quite painful to see. Additionally, she did nothing wrong protecting Yuri but she got punished because authorities outside Yurigaoka didn’t like that Lilies could make such decisions. Utter rubbish.

    The experiments they tried to increase the chances of finding Riri’s hairpin were funny to watch.

    Miriam’s hair is quite convenient, yes indeed. Also, she really does care about Riri but more specifically Moyu, despite the bantering between them. That was sweet of her.

    She may have done it so that she could claim all the credit but Kaede did a fantastic job in alleviating Riri’s pain, even if it was a little. Yuyu will allow her to have Riri’s attention for the moment ;-).

    No Lilies left behind! That’s the Yurigaoka way! Hopefully that’s the same at other Gardens…

    So the Misuzu wraith decided to awake from her slumber. What kind of horrifying revelations await our Lilies now, I wonder?

      Like in real life the authorities suck.

      Nice combinations and teamwork,

      MoyuMiri are another welcome couple.

      Yuyu’s nothing but a benevolent lover. She gave Kaede 10 SECONDS with Riri! What a woman.

      Would be pretty cool to explore other Gardens in a spinoff or sequel.

      Very interesting development, yes.
