Well now that Kure-nai is over, there isn’t much for me to do in terms of blogging. Sure I still have TLR, but nothing worthwhile has really happened so far. I thought this episode would have been pretty interesting with a new character, but it turns out that it wasn’t even a real person (more details later… I guess). All I can do now is wait for the next season and hope to find a few gems that I could blog on. Otherwise, these episode summaries of TLR might be the only time you hear from me.
Earth gets a visit from Lala’s very own father, Gid “Supreme Ruler of the Universe”. Gid hangs around Rito’s school to observe him and finally calls him up to the rooftop in order to test him with a fake doll of a woman. Rito apparently “fails” this test as he acted too cowardly with her advances. As Gid is about to destroy Rito along with the Earth, Lala stops him. Lala explains that Rito is the most important person to her and Gid backs off. He instead tells Rito to become the number one man in the universe or else the next time he sees him, he will kill him and destroy the Earth.
As you can tell with the very short episode summary I posted, there wasn’t much that happened in this episode. Lala’s father came into the picture and placed a heavy burden on Rito. Lala gets sad, Rito gets troubled, then he finds his resolve to become a better person, blah blah blah. Anyways you get the picture. The only saving grace for the episode is probably how awesome Gid looks and the bits of fanservice here and there. But other than that, another mediocre episode for TLR.
