Oh crap.

So…. wow, Ryoko turns out to be the Big Bad as well? I really didn’t expect this, and what’s even more impressive is how she is masterfully hiding it under that veneer of carefree lesbianism. Of course, it’s not explicitly confirmed yet, but same voice? Same hairstyle? That sneaky grin? The barrier power? Can’t be anyone else but her… or her evil twin sister.

Well, this show is really doing a good job throwing out plot twists and character revelations. I’d even say this is becoming the dark horse of the season. While it’s not the Madoka of the year level or anything, this show is definitely shaping up to be something I can look forward to every Friday now.

Also I lol’ed at the explanation that the EU handed over Durandal to the Japanese government in exchange for writing off defaulted loans.

    I’m really looking forward to seeing what is up with Ryouko and Naked Torture Lady.

    I almost couldn’t tell that Naked Torture Lady was Sawashiro, not a voice she uses very often.

    This show is just way too much fun.

    I swear to god that power up sound of the Durandal is the exact same sound effect as charging your beam in Metriod Prime.

    I feel your pain… Too many Engrish on this episode!

    Anyway, I wonder if that Naked Torture Lady wants to use Durandal and screw the whole world, along with the Noise! And maybe… Just maybe… She might be a double agent if she is Ryouko, which explains her hidden powers.

    Just because she can do English properly in events… doesn’t mean the show needs it I guess. The English was more written badly than spoken badly actually.

    That blood in the suitcase.
    She can be compared to the main antagonist/heroine of Milky Holmes.
    She is the best villain character this 2012.
