Rinne no Lagrange – 09: Dazed and Confused in Kamogawa

So De Metrio's princess was Yurikano, I wonder what became of her. If she lives I wonder how disappointed she would be in her nii-san.

Yurikano finally makes her debut and given the physical similarities between her and Madoka on has to wonder if she really was like Madoka. Certainly Kirius and Digiburolio think so, but one has to wonder how what was it that Yurikano triggered, was she a Vox pilot at some point or did De Meterio have some special ovids of their own. It is great that we finally learn who Yurikano is and certainly her reputation hasn’t suffered as badly as Villagiulio’s since she is still seen as a hero in De Metrio. I like how we have to adjust the galactic picture with each passing episode as it seems now that La Garite is slowly winning the war even as Kiss tries to slow them down and win a few small victories. I wonder how long Lan has been away since it seems that Dizelmine is marching to the beat of his own drum while Lan seems largely ignorant of Moid’s real mission and is under the impression that De Metrio still has the upper hand.

The balance of power aside this episode featured mostly the De Metrio boys finding themselves at a crossroads. They are far from home yet haven’t completely thrown in their lot with Kiss. Yurikano may have been a hero but Dillapulio is not entirely trusted. Given how glowing Array is about his new life at Novumundus it does seem likelier now that the will eventually be working for Madoka once Dizelmine’s plans are revealed and/or if Kiss proves to be just as despicable. Izo may be itching for a fight but Kirius and Array have the right of it in that they do not have the means to challenge Madoka now that she is comfortable fighting with Midori. Where once there was one in terms of numbers they are evenly matched, not to mention that they do not have any hope for support from De Metrio. As for how much they can trust Kiss there is still the unsettled matter of who wrecked their ship, so far the only likely candidate is that manipulative bastard Kinetcagurio.

Izo had the drive initially to keep fighting but he, like Kirius and Array, seem to be channeling their inner Zentradi and got confused by the TV. Izo was taken as a pervert upon arriving at Kamogawa Girls’ School, and then he was labeled as Madoka’s boyfriend. While I do not put much stock in Izo wooing Madoka, he does have a measure of decency. Madoka wasn’t on screen much but it was good to learn about the origin of the Jersey Club and why Madoka is the way she is now. It was tragic that Madoka’s mother died in an attempt to save her and of her father’s fate we have no clue. Still many would be rescuers have died in rescue attempts because the human desire to help led many to ignore the danger. Madoka’s loss was brutal but at least she discovered Yoko who brought back color to her life. It makes me curious to see how Yoko behaved back in her youth and if Yoko is any indication then Madoka will grow up to be a fine person. Madoka seems to have many friends outside of the Jersey Club as there were four very interested parties about the possibility that Izo was Madoka’s fated one.

I’ll say this much about Izo though, he seems polite enough if very confused. Kirius seems to have started to take a peculiar liking to Kamogawa and Earth, though one has to wonder what he would do knowing that he had just run into Madoka. Array seems to be broken beyond repair and much of the comedy this week comes at his expense. Not only is he taking a new found fondness for his meido state, he is more than comfortable walking around in public wearing a dress despite having one of the fabled black cards to buy new clothes. Array seems to be fated to be a trap and while the town will talk it seems that at least one guy has no problem with Array being broken. Quite how Kirius was able to find money and how Kiss bought a house is anyone’s guess at this point. My guess is that somehow, some way Digigurio was able to con some money out of Hiroshi and must have other resources at his disposal, that or he’s been stealing like mad. Kiss does, after all, originate from a prison planet and surely there must have been a hacker or two, or at the very least a good thief among them.

Next week we get to see the fruits of the Jersey Club’s labors as the school festival will be in full swing. Midori is likely to pay a visit having missed Madoka so much, but I wonder if Kirius, Izo, and Array will also make a scouting mission of it. Asteria seems to be aware of De Metrio and while she doesn’t trust Kiss nor does she fully trust Moid I am sure that she will make arrangements. Dizelmine’s recent conquest won’t go unnoticed and given how Kirius, Izo, and Array are far from home, I am sure she will try and add three formerly undefeated ovid pilots to her forces. She already broke Array, perhaps she can break Izo and Kirius as well.

I wonder if Yurikano was making Maru moves as well.

Oh man he's ripping off Hiroshi...

I see that the boys are easily led astray.

Yes this is kind of degrading...

Hmm...I still think it is better to be Asteria's lackey than Villaburlio's. Though Izo couldn't pull off a meido like Array or Kirius.

LOL Broken Beyond Repair.

Asteria's handiwork is a scary thing...

This will likely be their first...

I know someone who is most happy about finally having a real club.

Fear not for Madoka will not be doing some trifling maid cafe.

Hey I guess they all meet the perquisite for Patrick's blessing.

I thought you were just confused...

Oh man did Madoka just set off Kirius' flag?

I wonder if Yurikano started a De Metrio chapter of the Jersey Club...

It seems Madoka has more strength than most girls.

At least Izo didn't get any ideas for Kaifun's movies...

Oh man it seems Asteria has Sheryl-class credit and wealth possibly even more if she's handing out black cards to her lackey.

I guess Kirius doesn't find Meido Array to be Moe...

I guess Izo isn't 100% jerk.

Oh my...

Poor Lan tries so hard and nary a complaint too.

Shit...looks like Izo at least has some combat prowess outside of his ovid.

It could have been worse, he could have taken his ques from day time soap operas...

She's wrong but Izo is hiliguilio's lackey...

Hey just throw your lot in with Madoka and spare yourself the grief...

One of the best Marus yet.

Hmm...Kirius seems to share some similarities with Lan, well except for the diplomacy bit.

We all know...

I guess this patron is broken too...

I laughed so hard I fell out of my chair...

I guess the Kendo Club is also Madoka's Fan Club...

Seems Madoka has plenty of admirers...

I think that they are also able to tap into the Yuri.

Diction can be deadly as Izo will soon find out...

Apparently they are of the opinion that Madoka is so lovely that it is okay if she is Bi.

The most tragic Chicago Cubs fan of all time...

I guess they hit Izo with the dojikko tag.

I bet Madoka's mum was every bit as brave and head strong like Madoka.

I wonder what Souta was doing when Yoko founded the Jersey Club.

Such sadness...

Apparently Yoko in mizugi brought color back into Madoka's world.

Lousy cat giving Madoka trouble, this why dogs are better...

Apparently Madoka wants to keep it an OT3.

Perhaps, but this isn't the end of Izo's ship.

What has been seen, cannot be un-seen.

Yeah apparently Lan has no idea what dark deeds you are doing while she has been away...

I had no idea that Lan's brother was a conqueror, though it seems that Dizelmine isn't as lazy as Bulagulio.

Don't tell me Kissygulio wanted every one to "BE WITH KISS."

Reaching new lows it seems.

Array believes in the Asteria that believes in him.

Apparently Rudigulio can't press pause when talking to his new lackeys.

Still can't get that perfect, eh?

Izo might be too quick to anger but at least he is making it known he doesn't believe in the former crown prince.

Kirius should just lead Izo and Array into joining Madoka if only just to ruin Digiulio's day.

Some one really went nuts with the hot dogs...

I don't think Kirius, Array, and Izo have much of a shot with any of them... Array might already be ruined for marriage.

    For all his protesting, Array sure seems to have settled right in to the meido lifestyle. Maybe he can teach Lan a thing or two, she could use the help.

      We’ll see if they will associate with Array once they realize he is a dude, maybe they will be fine with it maybe they will think him a pervert.

    I still don’t think the series will be anything over mediocre, but it’s been enjoyable to watch lately. And Array is sooooooooo broken. I look forward to the further indignities they put him through.

      It doesn’t have to be the best series this season all that matters is that is fun and funny. It’s still a comedy and it delivers consistently on that front.

    I love this show. Too much stuff to do today for more commentary. I hope they can keep this light-hearted mood until the end and not veer off into grimdark territory.

      They aren’t likely to go grim dark even of they want to get serious at times. Even when things look bad there will be a laugh to be had here and there.

    Crusader: Yurikano’s fate was revealed in the prequel manga — she was killed when Vox Lympha was first activated. Won’t give any more details, except that Lan blames herself for everything.

      Where can I read this prequel manga?

      WHERE and has it been translated yet?

      • Posted March 7, 2012 at 9:01 am | Permalink

        There are raws of the first two chapters floating around in the usual places, but suffice to say that the manga only makes the fact that Moid is up to no good more obvious.

    Yak Deculture!

    Great if this were an otome game Madoka just raised flags for the Kyrius and Izo routes. Except Array.
    Array completely fell for Asteria trap.

    Goodness Madoka may be the idol of her school, even schoolboys across town heard of her, but the Kamogawa school body agrees she needs a boyfriend.

    Izo and Kyrius along with Aquarion Evol’s Jin pretty much experienced culture shock. Array got his own culture shock with sexual harassing bi-ojisan.

    You have to wonder though. Given Kyrius confusion whether De Metrio has capitalism. Oh while Madoka sort of remembered his voice he doesn’t recognize hers as she was snarky at the time not a sweet local girl.

      It’s a small town and certainly Madoka is a local hero, she probably has beaten up her fair share of boys. I still think Madoka isn’t going for a hetero end. As for De Metrio maybe they are locked into a total war economy and Kirius is being paid in script.

        Sound like to me a rumor would’ve started Madoka defeated a lot of guys that are lying the ground… All boys whose confessions are a failure actually.

          Naw just the boys who didn’t take no for an answer.

    Cheeky use of “sket” in the script repeatedly while the Madoka-radar Kamo Girls were speaking to Bossun Izo. SKET Dan’s got competition in the Jersey Club.
