No fancy intro this time. We’re jumping right in.
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.
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.
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.
Convenient super bun is convenient.
I was hoping for the longest time Moyu X Miriam Hildegard Von Gropius were a thing. Looks like I got my wish.
Suspicious Kaede is suspicious.
“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…
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.
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?
Tasuza: You fought well but it’s time to finally admit defeat.
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.
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.
