What a wonderful episode this was, I got a bit teary in the end when Minami broke the news to her parents, and they responded so positively to her dream. Minami really had a hard time this week. The whole dilemma of having to tell her parents she had a new dream was eating her alive and putting her on the edge. Nothing made me happier to learn how her brother Wataru sensed there was something amiss, and was hoping to find the opportunity to talk to her about it. Much to his relief, Minami was able to resolve her inner conflict with the help of her friends. It was a difficult for Minami to tell her parents how she won’t be working with the family business, she was concerned about disappointing them after having built the expectations after so many years. But her father was in fact even more delighted to hear the news, because there is nothing more that her parents wanted was for her to pursue her own happiness. What makes her happy will make them happy and that is all they need.
But that wasn’t just the only highlight of the episode. Minami absolutely slayed it today. She had the fight in the bag, so much so I don’t think she really needed any back-up. I was so confident she was going to pull it off on her own just because her conviction for her dream can no longer be shaken. It also pleased me to see Dyspear switch up her tactics, just a bit though by entrusting the uh, “mega” Zetsuborg to Shut- providing him to use it properly as it is his final chance before being more or less eliminated by Dyspear herself. Unfortunately for Shut, he didn’t have a chance to begin with. As he was defeated, we know he is in deep trouble, and the last time we seen someone fall into this deep end with Dyspear, it was Close- and we all saw what happened there. It looks like that’s exactly what will happen in next week’s episode. The question now is whether or not Towa and the girls can save him, or does he fall in too deep to be pulled out. Regardless what happens, I sense it’s going to be a bit of a sad episode, just because we have seen how much Shut has struggled and how poorly he has been treated by his so-called comrades.
One last thing before I wrap it up, let’s take a moment to appreciate the shortest Christmas party EVER! What a surprise it was to see the girls do a cute Christmas performance. I absolutely loved the song, it was so charming and I always enjoyed these little musical moments for holidays segments. It makes the mood so cheery!
Happy Holidays everyone!
