Let’s continue, shall we?
After Elan Prime’s group, the heads of Peil Technologies, had a meeting with Papa Jeturk and an anti Baron Bad Dad guy to overthrow him (or something like that. I only pay half attention to the backstage politics stuff.) we joined our heroines at Miorine’s pad.
Miorine: Quit spacing out Suletta. Wait. Are you still worried about Elan?
Suletta: I haven’t seen him since that day. I’m worried.
Miorine: Do you enjoy annoying me?
Suletta: Haven’t you ever worried about someone else-
Miorine: No. My only concern is getting off this dump and heading for Earth. By the way you better stop spacing out or you’ll fail the exam again.
While I didn’t watch the recap episode what I did notice was the bombardment of SuleMio art in dresses. Did we get what we hoped for? Interesting note is Miorine lent Suletta one of her dresses, leading to viewers getting a small hint of how big our lovable redhead’s chest is.
During their discussion they both got an invite to an “incubation party”. Basically a mix of a ball and an event to promote business ventures to invest in. Something like that. Miorine said hardly any get enough support so attending one was pointless but Suletta wanted to go in hopes of finding Elan. Miorine agreed. We’ll come back to this in a bit. Suletta invited Nika and a good boy (forgot his name). Chuchu most likely didn’t come because she loathed space peeps in case anyone asks.
As they explored the venue the crowd gossiped about Suletta spooking her. Miorine helped her ignore them and focus as only she could when they’re approached by Shaddiq. He and Miorine were old homies see. He asked if she came to join Baron Bad Dad but she quickly said it’s to help Suletta find Elan. He’s surprised to see her take interest in helping someone because she wasn’t this social at all back then. After she mildly tsundere’d off I think he hinted at admitting defeat or losing interest in her. We’ll see if that goes anywhere.
Next our heroines were greeted by Lady Prospera. Suletta properly introduced Miorine to her. It started off friendly but once Prospera used a classic mama trick to send her daughter off somewhere the real discussion began with her potential daughter in law. She hyped up Baron Bad Dad as this big deal and wondered why Miorine didn’t like him. She said it’s because she neglected her and didn’t take her seriously. There’s something worse he did involving her late mother but didn’t mention it instead saying she refused to accept him as her father. Prospera was amused by her rebelliousness and said “For someone who hates their dad you sure like to take full advantage of the benefits. If you’re serious about rebelling I suggest putting aside your pride for the greater good (the greater good).”.
An interesting moment between Nika and Shaddiq where he “thanked” her for something. Something else we’ll have to keep an eye on.
Back with Suletta she had a mishap with Younger Jeturk, still bitter over her causing Guel to get kicked out of their house. “Elan”, who was actually Elan Prime forced out of hiding because his new stunt double wasn’t finished yet, played his part in the scheme by reassuring Suletta everything was alright then invited her on stage for the main event.
Things went fine at first until the Peil Technologies reps started asking questions about Suletta and Aerial as part of their scheme to expose Aerial as a Gundam. Suletta tried to deny it but when she said she felt a kinda psychic bond with Aerial it’s pretty much over. Oh and Elan Prime feigned shock.
On a positive note before the big scene coming up Suletta’s scared when she realized she’s on stage but thanks to Miorine literally helping her stand straight earlier she got enough courage to talk to the audience before Peil messed with her. SuleMio with those baby steps. Love to see it.
Seeing her eventual Bae in big trouble Miorine stepped up to protect her by legit using her benefits as Baron Bad Dad’s daughter for the greater good (the greater good). She proposed starting a new company from the ashes of Shin Sei’s and Peil’s to research Gundam technology for the benefit of humanity. The company would be called GUND-ARM. Sounds like what Elnora’s past group were doing.
Also she thought all this up pretty fast just to save her tanuki soul mate. Not bad for a “caged” fox/white canary who only thought about going to Earth a second ago.
Unfortunately being BBD’s daughter wasn’t good enough to convince investors. Remembering what Lady Prospera said she literally threw away the accessories as a sign to be taken more seriously. She approached the only one who could sway their decision through his support, mean old dad. To her surprise he agreed but warned her of the dangers of meddling with Gundams. That or he bluntly said “it’s your funeral kid”. Meanwhile Lady Prospera was called by Younger Jeturk to talk turkey as part of the big plan but Miorine’s success threw that out the window as she not only partnered up with her but kinda gave her blessing to marry Suletta. The episode ended with her telling Suletta “Yes dear. Aerial is a Gundam. Cat’s out of the bag. Teehee”.
Great showing by Miorine. Big step up for her. Love to see it. Hopefully she’ll take a bigger one in due time.
