Picking up where last week’s episode left off. Momoyo starts to fight with the robotic Tachibana. With a combined effort, everyone is able to land a blow on Tachibana. Flash forward to after the battle, where Momoyo is being told that Tachibana was killed in action in a mission from Ageha, and also being told about her research in cyborg prosthesis as a form of weaponry.
Everyone moves to attack again, but with the help of some analysis from one of her comrades watching from above, Tachibana is able to read all of their moves. However, Yamato is able to come up with a strategy, planting bombs on Tachibana.
Another flash forward reveals that Ageha falsely reported Tachibana’s death and used her as a candidate for the cyborg enhancements due to the extent of her injuries. Ageha also asks Momoyo not to fight with Tachibana, but Momoyo refuses.
Flash back one last time, revealing that Tachibana survived the explosion unscathed. Tachibana attacks, taking out everyone except for Momoyo. The battle continues, but it ends when Yamato is hit by a missile while he is trying to stop Momoyo from getting herself killed.
Plot! Delicious plot! First off…totally predicted Yamato getting hurt. Should be interesting to see where things go from here, probably dealing with Momoyo’s vulnerable side. This episode needed more Yukie, but I can forgive it. Keep looking forward to more.
