Q-feuille joins Letuchaia and Pauki on a trip to the hospital to visit their grandmother, but things quickly turn sour when various people mention how Q-feuille replaced Letuchaia as Geacht’er’s little sister princess. This confuses Q-feuille because her altered memories tell her that it’s only ever been her, and in frustration, Letuchaia tells Q-feuille the truth about her GTO ES-member origins. This leads to Q-feuille remembering Ascoeur and Di-air, but her hair ornament causes her to lose consciousness. Shade and Torch then take her back to her room, and Shade makes her forget all about this incident. Meanwhile, over at GTO headquarters, Ascoeur and Di-air decide to move out to go get Q-feuille back, and this time Hiver lets them because she’s also ready to act on the frozen time space. After saying goodbye to their friends, Ascoeur and Di-air take the Mistral to G-Society’s Erde Meteor and sneak onboard while their ship keeps the defense forces occupied. On the way in, Ascoeur gets the feeling that she’s been there before and experiences several flashbacks, including one of her brother. The girls soon get attacked by Q-feuille who’s there with Geacht’er. He calls Ascoeur by the Lieselotte name, but she declares that she’s Q-feuille’s partner Ascoeur.
As Ascoeur tries to convince Q-feuille that she’s being deceived, the Erde-Meteor suddenly initiates warp and starts moving towards the frozen time space. Geacht’er then tries to have Q-feuille capture Ascoeur, and the other Shadow Workers surround the girls. Once Q-feuille freezes Ascoeur, Geacht’er leans in to kiss her, but Di-air stops it with her power, and Ascoeur uses the opportunity to teleport both her, Di-air and Q-feuille away. Di-air’s power further grants Ascoeur the chance to try to talk some sense into Q-feuille, but Q-feuille isn’t happy since she now knows that Ascoeur is Geacht’er’s real sister. Before anything major can happen, Geacht’er finds them again and wants to kiss Ascoeur to make her remember her past. Ascoeur tries to escape again, but the other Shadow Workers tie her up to stop her. Seeing Ascoeur in so much pain and calling out to her causes Q-feuille to start crying again, and Ascoeur eventually loses consciousness.
This allows Geacht’er to kiss her, and that in turn restores in Ascoeur the memories of how her parents sent her away to be a test subject so that she could survive and how she had found her brother there. The experiments he had been subject to had affected his sanity, but she had promised to be with him forever and had kissed him. That caused a reaction that blew up part of the research station they were on, and the two got separated when it appeared that Ascoeur got buried under some debris. In truth, she had teleported to safety and had escaped in a pod, but she lost her memories in the process. Geacht’er had also escaped and had vowed despair and pain on the universe for all that happened to him. Back in the present, Ascoeur has regained her memories, but Q-feuille then instinctively attacks Geacht’er, so he orders her to be dealt with. Saphir has no qualms about doing this, but Ascoeur saves her partner and kisses her. Even Geacht’er’s power can’t stop this, and Q-feuille returns to normal.
As expected, a lot of plot got fleshed out in these two episodes, though mostly in episode 21. Episode 20 comparatively felt a bit more dragged out because I could barely stand the angst and melodrama between Letuchaia and Q-feuille and because it seemed like it took Ascoeur forever to leave GTO headquarters. But she did eventually get to Erde-Meteor (past the G-Society’s laughably bad defenses) and got to confront Q-feuille in the latter episode.
I was amused by the idea that kisses restored memories because it meant that we saw an incest kiss and a girl-on-girl kiss in the same episode, but it did serve as a catalyst for plot development each time. The one between Geacht’er and Ascoeur led to us finally learning what happened in the past and why Geacht’er seems to want to destroy the galaxy, and the one between Ascoeur and Q-feuille led to Q-feuille finally remembering her true self (that scene, incidentally, was the first time I actually noticed and liked the soundtrack). With all of the problems that kisses solve, including all the past situations that Di-air helped the girls through, maybe all that Ascoeur needs to do to stop her brother is to kiss him. I say that jokingly, but sadly I could actually see that happening. For the time being though, it looks like the story has finally returned what I consider to be the overarching plot with the space where time is frozen, and I assume that’s what the final three episodes will be all about.
“With all of the problems that kisses solve, …, maybe all that Ascoeur needs to do to stop her brother is to kiss him.”
Ah, if only all real life problems can be solved with kisses too. 😛
thats DEEP Anime Junkie…no wait!!!!! I’m still in the abyss, SLIPPINGGGGGGGGG!!!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It’s yuri!!! ^______________^
(past the G-Society’s laughably bad defenses)
Remember, the whole point was to lure her there in the first place…
GODAMNIT BROOKLYN OTAKU, DONT LEAVE ME ALONE!!!…….. You Must Persevere. we still HAVE A MONTH LEFT, A MONTH FULL OF SUFFERING, SADNESS, & MISFORTUNE, but after that month we will have an ETERNITY WITHOUT THIS CURSED SHOW….. CMON !! CMON!… NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO…SNAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKE!!!!!
FINALLY THE MAIN EVENT OF THE SHOW WE CAN FINALLY SEE THE ECLAIR AND LUMIERE.. all those hell just to show eclair and lumiere…..ECLAIR / LUMIERE..PLSSS SAVE THE SHOW…
This is getting good…heh. Yuri and incest indeed, with jealous Saphir aside.
Funny how Ascouer got some of her powers kissing Geacht’er all those years ago. Geacht’er is a crazy, and he’s gonna die horribly. Saphir can join him, so he won’t be alone in hell.
Looks like Eclair and Lumiere are going to return! They better say their catchphrases or I’m gonna be disappointed.
Which do like better for Eclair:
Chan Chan! (tada or whatever)
I have one of the hottest female body ever to be drawn but yet i’m just a little girl so I don’t understand adult stuff…
@Anime Junkie: Yeah I know right?
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could stop a great long running feud with your father BY KISSING HIM?
O___o Seriously man, kissing everyone you have trouble with… God would that be horrible.
that….. was creepy
damn this anime has almost everything, yuri, incest, little girl kissing. whats next?
@Alec…SNAAAAAAAKE!! i love dat crap, used to set the “shutdown” music on my old laptop to play that wave file. BUT SERIOUSLY i just want to chime in again “because by looking at the # of posts, nobody really gives a damn”…all i gotta say is this. we are watching this show for a bit of space type action/..something.,..something….HUH!? well I’m not really sure why we’re watching this, but IF YOU WANT SPACE ACTION!!! i got one word. COBRA, the animation!!!!!!! okay that’s 3 words, but have yall peeped this?? cobra is bad ass, funny too. the art style may turn some people off but i feel the entertainment is rock solid. check it
Yeah, I think Kiddy Girl-and is definitely inferior to the epicness that was Kiddy Grade. Eclair and Lumere are much more likeable as characters (and the plot actually made SENSE and wasn’t cliched – seriously, a character’s memory being manipulated by someone into become an enemy of her former friends, how predictable can you get?)
However, I will finish this. I at least want to know if they’ll surprise us at the end (and PLEASE show Eclair and Lumiere pwning everyone and saving the day) or not.
hmm..i never considered watching Cobra, and while im typing this, i researched cobra… damn..it wasnt what i thought it would be…I thought it would be a prequel/sequel/remake of G.I. JOE… GI JOE!!!…its G.I JOE, why the F*** would i wanna watch that…
anyways… i realized it wasnt a G.I. Joe, and im planning to watch an episode or 2 of this anime and see if it interest me, but given ur compliments to that anime, i doubt il drop it.
