Sorry for how late this post is, but I’ve been pretty busy all day. Anyways, this week’s episode starts off where last week’s left off, with the second enemy appearing. Meanwhile, it’s revealed that Lan was unable to activate Vox Lympha because she fears it. The second Ovid’s pilot forms a link with Madoka and asks her to surrender, but she naturally refuses. She’s still losing but then Lan takes Vox Lympha to help her.
However, the first enemy from the last episode tries to intercept her. Lan apologizes to Madoka for getting her involved in the fighting, but Madoka reassures her. Lan realizes she isn’t afraid of Vox Lympha and transforms it (it basically looks the same, but blue). Lan and Madoka team up, forcing the enemies to retreat.
So Lan seems to hint that there’s some dark secret about the Vox…I wonder what it is. It might end up being some sort of horrible death or something…only speculation, of course. Lan joins the fight, and I guess Muginami will join shortly. Honestly, Lan’s personality wasn’t quite what I expected from the first episode, but I’m guessing Muginami’s is exactly what I think it is.
I’m really not a fan of these Ovid designs…Vox Aura and Vox Lympha basically look the same and all three of the enemy Ovids also looked basically the same. I guess I expect more from a show that I’ve read elsewhere has such great animation quality. Is it all going to the wrong place? Oh well, still another character to introduce and then we can get some plot going.
