KIDDY GiRL-AND – 05
With Di-air now part of their team, Ascoeur and Q-feuille are given a mission to investigate the old GOTT building. Once inside of the place, Q-feuille is scared, and things only get worse for her when both Di-air and Ascoeur run off, leaving her by herself. The unfamiliar place, darkness, and weird noises really get to her, and she runs across what appears to be a shape-shifting monster. She’s able to escape from it and eventually finds Ascoeur, however there’s still no sign of Di-air. The two then make their way to a laboratory-like area, and they come across what appear to be the ghosts of Alv and Dvergr. The ghosts disappear though, and Di-air suddenly reappears, unconcerned and without a scratch on her. The girls don’t get much time to rest however because they are attacked by a mechanical-looking monster that Di-air identifies as a Genetech Beast. It can change forms, and Ascoeur and Q-feuille have trouble against it until Di-air kisses them both and powers them both up. They’re then able to defeat it and find out afterward that its real form is that of a small creature, and Di-air was playing with it all along. Di-air even decides to adopt it and brings it back with her to GTO.
This was about half what I was expecting – that is, Q-feuille running around scared in another episode of silliness – and half a fairly entertaining episode. I thought that first part was pretty pointless overall since it wasn’t even scary, but things got better in the second part starting with the brief appearance of some old faces, their respective voice actresses, and the 17-years-old reference. The battle after that wasn’t too bad either, though I was amused at how Ascoeur was borderline haxx when she got powered up. Q-feuille, on the other hand, still seemed kind of weak, and I guess it means that Ascoeur will probably do most of the heavy fighting in the series. I also liked how they got Wakamoto Norio to voice the new mascot character, reminding me of Onsokumaru, which in turn got my hopes up for some good jokes. For next episode though, the preview appears to hint at something happening in the plot concerning Chief Hiver and Sommer, and it seems promising.
