Zettai Shounen – 18
Ayumu and Kisa happen to meet one day by the “Trust Yourself” graffiti. Ayumu is able to tell that Kisa can see the material fairies and he trades phone numbers with her. This day also happens to be her birthday, so she’s feeling particularly lonely since it seems that no one remembered. She ends up meeting with Shigeki that night, and he actually gives her a necklace as a birthday gift. They call up Ayumu, who arrives and brings Dosshiru and Shisshin with him. Kisa lets Bun-chan out, but it has a negative reaction to the other two mechanical fairies and starts flying away. The two hot-colored ones chase Bun-chan down and a large explosion occurs. Afterwards, a completely shocked Kisa picks up the pieces of Bun-chan that fall to the ground.
I am very impressed with this episode since I didn’t expect any of this to happen (at least not yet). You have to feel bad for Kisa, since she just lost one of her only friends. I can see Kisa (or Shigeki) becoming quite vengeful and blaming Ayumu. Whatever happens, the war between the two colors is really heating up (no pun intended). And just what the heck is that ring in the sky?
The music that played during that “battle” final scene has quite an epic sci-fi feel to it – akin to E.T. or Close Encounters of the Third Kind. That coupled with actual action (I can stand only so much dialogue), makes the chase/fight scene one of my favorites so far. And now I’m actually looking forward to the next episode of Zettai Shounen. Hopefully, the story picks up the pace from this point on.
