Sophie and others found a mysterious Guardian unit that is standing around the campus for a week. That Guardian unit is somehow looking for Blade. Upon destruction, it rebooted itself and revived as a humanoid girl. She was then later named as Iona.
Sophie discovered that Iona is being lonely for a long time, after she lost connection with the Mother. And then, a self-destruct mechanism has been initiated in her, in which she got only a little time remaining to enjoy time with the people else around. It’s about time for her to bid farewell, but Blade is seemingly missing.
This Episode would feature the female Guardian Humanoid, Iona. She was originally a “robot unit” that has evolved into a female human form, after she utilized human data from Earnest (Lol that transparency camera). Well, we got somebody who is a rival of Sophie, somehow, because their character is almost equal!
Iona’s cool-headed and emotionless character has totally made Sophie to pit against her, in some non-physical battles, like that staring contest! The only difference is that someone like Iona could adapt human emotions — noted when her time is running out, and she is ready to detonate herself. Of course, Iona’s sexy-curves, poses, and her other exposures could really make me arouse here in no time! Yep, and she is next to Yessica, somehow, for me.
Meanwhile, Blade, on the other hand, is just feeling strong here, so he did lose himself in a battle for purpose. But then, that strategy was already planned to really allow Iona to win. And I do really like Blade conceding a battle, knowing that he can be still strong without using all of his powers.
Yep, and they did really skip the opening animation credits here once more in the cold opening. And that is, I believe, in order for them to maximize the Episode runtime without ending it in a cliffhanger, just in order to finish the story arc. Quite impressive strategy! Sacrificing the opening animation just to finish the story, and that’s great! But then, will it be enough to sustain higher rating?
Overall, this Episode can be an average to bad. But then, will my calculations be just right to be average?
My Rating: BAD (2.3/5)
Review Rating Summary and Breakdown
Story: (3/5) – Story is just right, and was able to resolve the problems of the featured character.
Animation: (2/5) – Nothing really much of an exciting animation, except with that transparency camera (lol). Also, nothing much of a character development, since Iona just made an entrance. I hope that she could even get one in the next succeeding Episodes.
Insights: (2/5) – I did not enjoy watching this Episode without even getting to learn something from it. What I had learned is that spending time before your final farewell can be a sad ending. Of course, nothing lasts forever when it’s reality.
