Summary:

With GTO set to be dismantled, its ES-members are being sent elsewhere, leaving just Ascoeur, Di-air, Hiver, and Sommer. Ascoeur really wants to go save Q-feuille, but Hiver and Sommer stop her and make her reveal everything that happened with Geacht’er. Q-feuille meanwhile remains brainwashed and her acting lovey-dovey with Geacht’er really pisses off Letuchaia. Letuchaia thus tries to get back at her, but her attempts fail and Letuchaia instead finds herself becoming Q-feuille’s friend. Back at GTO, Hiver has Ascoeur learn more about Q-feuille from the database, and Ascoeur finds out that Q-feuille was part of an ES-member duplication plan that was in response to the time freeze incident. Trixie and Troisienne were the third generation and Q-feuille was the fourth, but Q-feuille didn’t get a partner because Eclipse died. Hiver explains that Q-feuille had been lonely for a long time, so she was happy to have Ascoeur and had thus wanted to save her. She also thinks that as long as the two girls have their deep bond, they can call out to each other and will meet again someday. This occurs sooner than anticipated because Q-feuille, Shade, and Torch suddenly arrive at the GTO headquarters and come face to face with Ascoeur.

Summary:

Ascoeur thinks at first that the Q-feuille in front of her might be an illusion, but she soon realizes that that’s incorrect. It only gets Q-feuille angry, and she forces Ascoeur to fight her. Ascoeur tries to reason and talk instead, but an annoyed Q-feuille just freezes Ascoeur. However, after seeing Ascoeur’s subsequent suffering, Q-feuille herself starts crying and doesn’t understand why. When Q-feuille blames Ascoeur and takes it out on her, Di-air’s powers activate, turning her a golden color, and she saves Ascoeur. Nothing Q-feuille does is effective against Di-air, and it turns out that Di-air is able to control both space and time. Realizing the gravity of the situation, Torch and Shade save Q-feuille and retreat back to the G-Society headquarters. Upon learning about what happened, Geacht’er orders the capture of Ascoeur and the elimination of Di-air. Afterward, Torch confides to Shade that he doesn’t like the idea of partners fighting each other. It reminds them of the police corruption that at first had pitted them against each other and had then set them both up to be killed. What had saved them had been Geacht’er, but this memory had triggered doubts in Shade about if he could kill Torch if ever ordered to. Back at the GTO, Di-air is given some rest, and Hiver explains to Ascoeur that Di-air used up all her power at once, powers which she inherited from Eclipse. When Di-air does finally wake up, Ascoeur suggests that they go get Q-feuille together.

I thought that episode 18 didn’t have too much substance until the last part where we learned about the ES-Member plan. The episode did end with a nice cliffhanger thanks to the arrival of Q-feuille at the GTO headquarters, but the majority of the stuff prior to that with her and Letuchaia was like watching Wile E. Coyote trying to catch Road Runner.

Fortunately, episode 19 had a fair amount of plot development. It wasn’t too hard to predict that Ascoeur or Q-feuille (or both) would get emotional if they had to fight each other, but I didn’t expect that Di-air would finally do something there. I probably should have known that there would be something more to her, but I had assumed that she didn’t have any more powers after that experience in episode 10 where she had been in so much danger and yet had needed Ascoeur and Q-feuille to save her. As for the rest of the episode, it was good to see Torch and Shade get some more back-story, tied into the theme of partners and complete with plenty of boys’ love undertones, and I wouldn’t be surprised if this is foreshadowing for them betraying Geacht’er or something.

Yes I know I’m still way behind on this series. Hopefully I’ll be able to get caught up by the time the finale airs in a couple of weeks.

    Ugh, I hate these two. Bring back the original cast. Expecially Viola and and that dude that can’t talk.

    If those 2 were good decent cops and were betrayed by the gov’t in the past they should have wised up and seen that Geach’ter is a weasal. I hope they turn on him and help Ascoeur.

    I’m sorry that I’m posting here but I don’t actually have anything to discuss about this show in particular because I don’t even watch it haha. I was just curious whether you will be posting an entry on the third episode of Katanagatari? I know it came out a little while ago and has already been fansubbed actually. I already watched it but was curious to find out if you were going to talk about it and what you though Omni.

    the show is a damn failure. if only they stick with their ORIGINAL PLAN, this anime wouldnt have been a disaster.

    It was funny watching the Letuchaia and Q-feuille looney tunes parody.
    Di-air is the daughter/mini version of Eclipse! That means she can power up all the ES members! It was sad seeing Ascoeur and Q-feuille and Di-air fight each other, and the melody that plays at key moments really made it emotional.
    Geacht’er has to die, die, DIE! Torch and Shade got screwed by the corrupt cops, but Geacht’er isn’t much better even though he saved them; dude’s still a bastard.
    The faces of the girls are quite pliable; must be the beauty of nanomachines at work!
