「遭難!」 (Sounan!)
“Disaster!”

Episode at a Glance:
After taking to the skies with Mateo, Lillia and Treize are enjoying being on a plane again. Lillia then asks if she can take the controls for a bit, making Treize think that the answer will obviously be “no”, but Mateo allows her instantly, believing she’s probably the daughter of some very rich people and has some private plane she uses. Unable to say learned to fly in her mother’s military planes, Lillia takes control and goes on a more ambitious flight. Seeing this, Mateo is relieved that times have changed and the war has ended, saving ex-fighter pilots’ lives, much like his own.

On their way back, Mateo catches glimpse of a seaplane with a local army emblem landing in the water, and decides to check it out. When Mateo boards the other plane to see if everything is all right, the other pilot grabs Mateo, pulls a handgun out, and frantically tells the others not to move. Mateo however, tells them to run though, so Treize pulls out his own gun, hops into the front pilot’s seat, and takes off. Refusing to hand over the controls to Lillia because she’s not composed, Treize continues towards Rachika, saying they’ll contact the police once they’re there. Lillia however is more worried about why he’s carrying a gun (for self-protection according to Treize), but are suddenly fired upon by two pursuing planes. Seeing land ahead, Treize lands immediately and the two of them run into the forest, while their plane gets destroyed on the beach.

Over dinner in Ikstova, Mirielle wonders what her brother’s up to on this big important trip of his, but Benedict and Fiona wonder what she’s talking about. Mirielle then mentions how when they turned fifteen, her mother had told Treize that the country of Vezoro invited him to be the husband of their princess, Matilda. While Fiona didn’t accept this arranged marriage right away back then, she didn’t think it was a bad thing for a small country such as Ikstova either, so she had decided the following for Treize. If he finds a partner for himself before he turns twenty, they’ll formally refuse this invitation; however, if he doesn’t, he’ll head over to Vezoro to wed Matilda. Seeing as their daughter picked up on this, Fiona comments on how sharp she is, while Benedict says Treize might even bring a girl back home. Mirielle thinks this is impossible for her brother, so Benedict asks her what she’d do if he really brought a girl home, but she says she’s never even thought about it since it’s so unlikely.

After venturing further into the forest because Lillia refuses to camp out for the night, the two of them stumble upon a seemingly abandoned building and rest there instead. The next morning, a man is preparing breakfast and explains that he’s the resident of the house. Surprised, Lillia apologizes for using his house, but the man says that he figured they were lost and that he purposely leaves the door unlocked for people in their situation. Over breakfast, the man introduces himself as Morso, who created a charity for children in poverty. Hearing this, Lillia asks if a boy came by his charity the day before yesterday, and is relieved to find out that he did, as well as Morso knowing him by his name Carlo. When asked what they intend to do now, Treize says they plan to walk to Rachika for emergency business, but doesn’t want to get Morso involved by explaining the details. After telling them that the trip is 80 kilometers, Morso lends them a car to his institution, where there’s a charity plane meant for children that they can take to Rachika.

As they set out, Lillia mentions how they met a lot of good people here (Carlo, Mateo, Morso), but wonders if the next person they meet will be good or bad. Unbeknownst to them though, a group of soldiers is observing them and wondering if they’re “his” comrades.

Impressions:
Okay, that was a bit weird to see Treize pull out a gun, only to take off running, leaving Mateo behind. I guess he was primarily concerned with protecting Lillia though, but I didn’t expect him to abandon others so quickly even if that’s the case. Granted, he did plan on heading back to Rachika and contacting the police, but it seems unlikely (to me) that the culprit would take Mateo as a hostage when he’s flying a plane. With that said, I suspect that there’s more to Mateo though, as he was told to shut up after telling Lillia and Trieze to run. So as an ex-fighter pilot, he may know this local army, but doesn’t want to participate in their plans. (e.g. capture a prince?) Also, I don’t quite understand why Trieze choose to abandon his plane and land right away while they’re still being chased after. I mean, he could’ve simply handed over the controls to Lillia (which she was telling him to do) and she probably could’ve avoided all the gunfire until they got back to Rachika’s airspace.

Other than that, it was pretty amusing watching Treize and Mirielle argue over their fifteenth birthday who the older sibling is. Given the arranged marriage hovering over his head, I guess this explains why Treize is so insistent on being with Lillia, as he probably prefers to pick his own lifelong partner much like most people. Lilla and Treize are pretty cute together though, much like Allison and Wil were, but it’s puzzling/intriguing (…frustrating?) how having the roles reversed on who’s clear about their feelings and who’s completely dense doesn’t seem to help things out. By this, I mean that Lillia resembles Allison’s characters (e.g. wild, loud, spur-of-the-moment), while Treize resembles Wil (e.g. sensible, logical, reliable), but when it comes to relationships, we have the exact same problem.

Next time, it looks like we’ll see our orphan boy Carlo again (played by Fukuen Misato, e.g. Eve in Black Cat), and what looks like another conspiracy happening while Lillia and Treize are onboard the charity seaplane. I’m already reminded of the last arc’s conspiracy train when I saw the preview, which makes me wonder if everything in this series happens when our protagonists are on route somewhere. Not that I have a problem with it or anything, but it just seems to be a trend. It should be interesting though.

    but by the way pretty interrestin’ episode… as we can see….

    Well, Divine, much like I also expected this 2nd part will follow the formula from the first part, just with the next generation of characters. That is, they’ll get mixed up in some stuff like Allison and Wil did, etc etc. I just like to see Wil (Traves) and Allison coming in to save the day later on, it might happen, but probably close to the final arc of the show I bet.

    That way Lilia finds out that Traves is actually Wil and we get all happy family moment, and then Lilia and Trieze get together finally thus bringing the two families together. It’d be the type of happy ending I expect.

    i didnt know Allison & Lillia is a good anime

  • July 14, 2008 at 9:27 amGP

    People have been giving most of the attention to shows like Geass (or just geass really), so lots of people have been missing out on some good shows like this one.

  • July 14, 2008 at 1:32 pmHei

    :P seems like I need to pick this up again

  • July 14, 2008 at 6:38 pmTreize

    Definitely, people need to start noticing that there are also good shows besides just Geass or Macross and etc, not that they’re bad or anything, just to say there are ones just as good as those shows, with less drama (mayybe..>.>)

    The only problem with this show now is that the subs are behind 3 eps again. :(

    In the novel that ex-pilot guy was killed before Lilia can do anything.

    I was wondering how Mr. Morcheaux was going to get to his orphanage without a car. He could have at least have gone with them. O_o
