Now that we know what kind of show we’re looking at here let’s see where it goes next, shall we?
We joined Ai right where we left off last episode, intrigued by the beautiful dark skinned girl, Neiru. She suddenly tried to start a conversation as best as she could but no answer. At least, not until Neiru felt like saying something, which was ask Ai what she wanted with the eggs. When Ai said it was to bring back Koito Neiru retorted with a “You want to bring her back so you can clear your conscience of all guilt and self loathing”. When Ai asked “What about you?” she said “I’m not like you. I do it for my sister…who I let die”.
After the OP Ai quietly returned home but hid in her shell when she saw the teacher. We’ll find out what her problem is with him another time. I have some theories but for now I’ll keep them to myself. Not important just yet.
Afterward we saw Ai dancing without a care in a classroom, quickly revealing she’s back in the Silent Egg Zone. She had her fun but got carried away like last time the egg broke, grew and a girl hatched out of it. Ai prepared herself before quickly guiding her to safety. Didn’t take long for the Seeno Evil to come after the new girl, Minami. Ai came prepared this time and whacked the baddies with her Keyblade. However, because she wasn’t a skilled fighter the enemy got a hit on her but she led Minami to a door to the school roof.
Common folk would look at Ai admiring Minami’s fit figure as a sign of respect but we the cultured know exactly what she’s doing.
There the two introduced themselves. Ai told Minami her goal and she admired Ai for her forwardness and honesty while she considered herself shy. She practiced gymnastics and always followed the rules but one day felt like being a bit daring, by coming to gym class a little later than usual. However, she pulled an all-nighter and ended up missing class entirely. She got brutally scolded by her coach.
As Ai swore to protect Minami till they found a way out a familiar disembodied voice(s) chimed in (probably belonged to the two Slendermen in the Safe Space), telling her it wasn’t enough to escape but they had to defeat the Wonder Killer, aka Minami’s trauma.
Of course her trauma was her coach. Ai was about to fight but Minami told her to stand down. When the Wonder Killer revealed her true form she went for it anyway but got whacked.
We saw more of her time with Koito. This time of her being bullied for ” bully reasons”. Pick one. She had the idea of Ai hiding in the class locker and film the bullies harassing her but Ai’s too scared to watch…
As she regretted her failure she headed for the gym and saw Minami taking the Wonder Killer’s abuse. Refusing to fail again Ai kept on coming no matter how many times the trauma swatted her. She realized Minami wanted someone to pity and love her regardless of how rough it was.
Ai’s Keyblade wasn’t enough. She then picked up Minami’s ribbon to fight a trauma with a traumatized person’s weapon. Suddenly she was blinded by what I assume was goop from the WK’s bottom breasts (She had four) but kept fighting with Minami’s guidance. Ai figured out the coach used excuses to justify her tough love on Minami and was like “Screw you old fart!” as she landed the final blow. Minami finally got the message and kinda stood up to the trauma as Ai destroyed her. Sadly like last time Minami disappeared leaving a miffed Ai denied another pretty girl to hang out with.
Also like last time Ai went to the hospital where she was surprised to see Neiru taken to an operating room. Ai wanted to use the next Wonder Egg to help her but the Slendermen made her wonder if she wanted to be helped. Even so she visited her to have a talk once she’s out. She couldn’t stay long as Neiru’s mom made her leave.
Once they finally met up it looked like Ai got through to her a bit. We may find out more next time. Another pretty good episode.
