For the most part, even Midori’s death, everything in this episode seems far too convenient. I know that’s normal, but this seems a bit much. Defeating Pleiades was laughably easy and Kagetane joins the party pretty much officially. Gado’s death off screen and Midori’s death leads to a temporary pairing of their living partners. And Rentarou somehow becomes commander of all of the forces after all of his doubt regarding the previous commander’s methods. Funny how things work out, huh? I guess the main complaint I would have is that Pleiades died…just like that.
Anyway, it’s time for the final battle…I guess the plan is “use a bigger bomb”, which sounds very appropriate for military operations. It looks like there’s going to be a wrench thrown into this plan, though…was that the guy that Rentarou humiliated with the Seitenshi bodyguard scenario? Anyway, the preview makes it sound like Rentarou’s going to do another one of his grand self-sacrifice maneuvers.
