「名誉に値段はつけられない, ビクトリア島緊急追撃戦 I」 (Meiyo ni Nedan wa Tsukerarenai, Bikutoriatou Kinkyuu Tsuigekisen I)
“You Can’t Put a Price on Honor, The Critical Running Battle on Victoria Island I”
After last week’s episode and how much it drained from me, I wasn’t sure what to expect this week. Amazingly, it looks like the story is still pushing forward with just a few stumbles getting in its way.
A Civil War
Man, who would have ever thought we’d see the Legitimate Kingdom fighting with each other? Seriously though, some crazy things went on this week. Starting with the big reveal at the end since that’s freshest in my memory, I’m not sure how I feel about this huge army of Objects suddenly appearing from the depths of the ocean. Besides the obvious problems with the physics around moving multiple ton objects that silently, there’s absolutely no way something this big could have been kept secret from people like Frolaytia! I mean, there are limits to how much bureaucracy can hide!
Some Thoughts About the Episode
So, for the most part, this episode felt like a huge setup for whatever the story has in store for us in the coming weeks. And that means, that in terms of substance, not much really happened! Like, we had some fanservice from our beloved Princess Melinda and the always merciful Frolaytia, but everything else felt very unsubstantial. I guess it was somewhat cool to see the enemy use some different tactics compared to what we’ve seen, but if Qwenthur can figure out your plan before you’ve done it, you have to step your game up!
I guess what I’m trying to get at, is that so far this arc isn’t really doing it for me. However, it wasn’t all that bad because..
Luckily, after getting through the post and thinking about things, not everything was all that bad. With a majority of the setup out of the way, next week’s episode should hopefully be full of action and amazing Qwenthur moments that makes Heavy Object worth watching. If not, I hope we at least get to see some more Frolaytia since her absence has been noted (I’ve given up on seeing the princess for more than a few moments outside Baby Magnum)!
Catch you guys next week!
