Winter 2019 Grab Bag Week 8: Kouya no Kotobuki Hikoutai

Kate outmaneuvers Kyrie

Kouya no Kotobuki Hikoutai Episode 7

Since I'm still horridly behind on other shows, I'm talking about this series again. It's actually a lot of fun to watch the dogfights, so I always manage to keep up with it. This week's episode mostly seems to shift focus on Kate, continuing the trend of introducing each of the girls. However, I did get the sense that there's more going on in the background, especially with the recurring side characters.

Allen is shot down

This opening scene seemed a bit suspicious to me. While it does explain how Kate's brother, Allen, is put in the hospital, it doesn't seem generally relevant to the rest of the episode. Additionally, Allen seemed to be investigating something like a secret organization or country. Are the Yufang supposed to be the ultimate enemy in this series?

Kyrie points out that a book is about water

This isn't the first time it's been mentioned, but there have also been a lot of hints about the lack of water in this world. I personally like how the series introduces the idea that the oceans have disappeared, but the fact that it's coming up again makes me wonder if it's yet another thing I should suspect.

Chika complains about the enemies

It's kind of fun to watch the girls thrown out of their element. It seems like each week crashes a different Kotobuki member, which forces an awkward situation with available planes in the next episode. Watching Kyrie pilot a bomber was cool, especially when it pointed out the special considerations she had to make while flying.

The priest survives

I guess these side characters are important now if they're allowed to have a death fake-out.

A secret voice ponders the situation

The last scene was the most interesting for me, since it seemed to suggest that some group was behind more than just the events of this episode. Perhaps many of the sky pirate encounters we've seen are all coming from the same source, which could be a nice way to weave everything together.
