Well Array might not be going to town this week but it seems that he is still very much broken and with Digijulia preparing for armed combat, the De Metrio boys are somewhat divided. Izo is willing to fight for Kiss, while Array has misgivings about fighting people who really do not want a part of their war. Kirius does break the stalemate though and interprets Yurikano’s last wish was to ensure that the Voxes do not do any more damage. Whatever kind of crown prince that Ullilulio was his legacy seems to have been irreparably tarnished in De Metrio as Yurikano is the one who seems to be remembered and loved as a hero of her people while her brother is largely held with contempt. That said during his exile Wallalugio has built a loyal following in his continued opposition to La Garite and Dizelmine. Still Dizelmine is slowly winning the war and Bulilulio seems to have dedicated what forces he has left to the destruction of the Voxes.
While I still suspect Digigurio’s intentions, this will be seen as an invasion by Novumundus. Negotiations broke down and Kiss will be the ones who will be the first to resort to violence. Too bad for him that Tadakoro has some military savvy in him and opted for a pre-emptive strike on the Kiss Fleet. Kiss would be rather dumb to believe that Madoka is going to sit this one out and I am hoping that Madoka will give Kiss a rude shock as she kicks them out of the solar system. I think Villaguilio has severely over played his hand, because he will look like a duplicitous ex-prince who not only seems to have lost the loyalty of his former subjects, he cannot even negotiate in good faith. Since he had dumped Muginami I hope he will be in for a rude awakening when she chooses Madoka over him. As Princes go it seems that Digigurio has been toying with the hearts of women for some time, first Lan, then Muginami, and now Grania. Still in the battle of the Ex-es I think Grania is going to lose plenty once Lan and Muginami engage her fleet. Part of me thinks that Villaguilio intends to use Grania as a diversion as he strikes elsewhere in relative safety but time will tell.
The action is certainly heating up and rightfully so, but nonetheless it was good to have a few more laughs thrown in. Lan and Muginami seem to be getting along well in a tsun-tsun kind of way and if nothing else they are starting to trust each other more. Muginami even defers to Lan on occasion. Madoka seems to be on a bit of a downer, but I understand how she feels now that Lan and Muginami are connecting with Sachi and Michi. This is a good thing, even if Madoka feels a bit lonelier. Hopefully that will be corrected once she sorties again as parting with Midori seems to have started the general trend. I really hope that we get a more complete look at Madoka’s work for the Film Club’s last project, certainly if the poster is anything to go by, then they Film Club did go all out to doll up Madoka while they had an excuse to do so. For now it seems that Muginami and Lan will have more reasons to fight for Earth against Kiss and Muginaimi seems much less likely to go back to Wallapurgio. Grania might well end up being in the wrong place at the wrong time and it will sure be something to see what excuses she will offer up after getting kicked out of the system.
Yoko and Machiko seem to be duly impressed by how far Madoka has gone, and hopefully they will be able to make some contribution towards helping the Jersey Club in what should be their finest hour. Sachi had her dad play courier and hopefully as former Jersey Club Members Yoko and Machiko can do something great on their own. Speaking of Sachi, I wonder if she knows about her dad and Array…
Well the odds are pretty bad and Kiss seems to have the upper hand but if the Jersey Club can channel the spirit of Hope, Faith, and Charity then they can hold out until Kiss is thrown back to U-Go.
