The title says it all.
With the people of Midi City being as gullible as their police force was dumb the odds of our heroines winning the case were slim. That was when their defense attorney appeared.
As we can see our heroines echoed the reactions of most viewers upon Rikao’s debut. His first asked why they thought they were innocent and they explained their reason for being there and their strong bond. This was good enough for Rikao to know they’re worth defending. The prosecutor hammered the fact Mashumairesh were the only ones at the tower ruins when the police arrived while Rikao argued they couldn’t possibly have destroyed it. That’s when the prosecutor brought in a surprise witness. Someone Plasmagica knew very well.
It was Dagger, their old nemesis. Supposedly attended rehab and turned over a new leaf but as proven with “cartoony” villains since the dawn of time, old habits die hard.
The camera caught Delmin firing her Shubi Beam but the monster was conveniently out of sight. It looked like even Rikao was at a loss for words.
One last hope came from Plasmagica who presented a USB with recording of the event.
Of course Egghead had to screw it up.
As all hope seemed lost Mashumairesh simulated what their SIXTY NINE YEAR SENTENCE would be like. Pick a favorite in the comments if you wish.
Since Dagger’s video Rikao’s strangely quiet. Himeko had had enough. To her surprise he had enlisted the help of social media. I think there’s a message in this scene. Yup. There definitely is one. Thanks to the power of smartphone cameras and Rikao’s sweet beat Mashumairesh were found not guilty!
In the end the gang forgave Egghead for his dumbness and the two lead bands were together at last. After the ED we got to learn more about Rikao. Like every other male performer on the show he’s glorious. I wonder if we’ll get to meet his bandmates? Would be neat.
