It looks like this week’s episode was mostly training and relationship-building for Leo and Mikihiko. It was essentially what I would call cheap fanservice to get those relationships on the surface. We also find out that the spy student in First High is apparently related to the engineer from the previous arc that was involved in the Mirage Bat accident. I don’t know if there was any way I could have predicted that…it seems like such a lousy reason for revenge.
Presumably, the last scene in the episode indicates that one of the members of the enemy group has disguised himself as a student and infiltrated the school. Does that mean that the action starts up next week? I assume that the enemy will be disrupting the demo for the Thesis Competition since it looks like it’s almost done.
