KIDDY GiRL-AND – 10
Ascoeur and Q-feuille have been depressed ever since the attack, and because G-Society’s ploy worked, the GTO is currently limited in how it can act. However, unlike Ascoeur and Q-feuille who feel now that they can’t do anything, Di-air remains upbeat and vows to become an ES Member. What’s more, Di-air has been noticing something in the distance and finally goes to investigate one day. It turns out to be G-Society spies, but because Di-air is alone, she can’t do much, and Tama can barely protect her. Fortunately, Ascoeur and Q-feuille come to her rescue, and their opponents respond by releasing several Genetech Beasts. These prove too much to handle until Di-air’s life comes in direct danger, at which point Ascoeur and Q-feuille suddenly find themselves able to use Trixie and Troisienne’s old powers. They are thus able to defeat the beasts and force their opponents to withdraw. Afterward, Ascoeur realizes that their bodies must remember how Trixie and Troisienne fought and that the two live on inside of them. She and Q-feuille regain their resolve to become ES Members, and sometime later, they are made into warrant ES Members by Chief Hiver.
Before anyone asks, I have no intention of dropping or giving up on this show; I’m just way behind on watching and blogging it thanks to all the other higher priority stuff I had to work on given the end of the year and the new season, and I am trying to catch up when I can.
In any case, I found this episode to be not too bad, but fairly predictable until the parts near the end. The girls of course had to go through the grieving process, and it was nice to see Ascoeur solemn and serious for once. As for what happened near the end, it wasn’t shocking that the Ascoeur and Q-feuille would eventually get stronger powers, but I didn’t think it would happen quite so soon and in that sort of way. The key might lie in what was written on Trixie’s tombstone because it could be interpreted to say that she was the third Eclair, and that in turn might mean there’s some sort of inheritance system in place. I’m curious to see how they explain it (clones?), though it looks like episode 11 is back to focusing on the G-Society side.
