That was WAY too easy. Way too easy. Those astronauts were way too nice and calm and honestly it was all so ridiculous. And I should expect ridiculous things with this show, but this…okay then.
I felt that this episode was rushed. I didn’t expect this space voyage to happen so quickly. I’m just amazed that a few kids were able to hijack a rocket without any notice. So it was very simple. Some of the kids would distract the men working there, while Ritsu would handle the security cameras. Nagisa and Karma were chosen to go on this voyage and they agreed. They were easily able to reach the rocket and swapped out the dummies that were in place. They set off, and with no complications, they reached the space station. They met with the American men in the station and threatened them with a bomb, but they calmly explained their situation. The men liked the boys and agreed to give them the information, and so they did. Karma and Nagisa had a little fun in the station while also helping the men move stuff around while Ritsu copied the data. Then, again without any problems, they left the station and set out for Earth. Also, they never had a bomb. The thing they had that said “bomb” on it was just jelly or something. Once they reach a certain part of the Earth’s hemisphere, Koro-sensei finds their craft and guides it to water near their school, and Karma and Nagisa return safely with the data.
Turns out, with Okuda translating, smaller creatures with the tentacle cells have a higher chance of having a strong reaction. But the bigger, the less it will. Such as, a human-sized creature with the cells has a much lower chance of going haywire. There is also a medicine you can make with silicone that decreases these chances even more, lower than 1%! And Okuda can actually make it, because she already did. That one time she made Koro-sensei drink her poison and he turned to a grey blob thing. She can just make it herself, and Koro-sensei should be fine.
This was…just way too easy. They went to space with no trouble, got the data with no trouble, and it turns out that the solution they needed was right in front of them all along. I just felt like all of this happened too fast and it was too convenient. Also, the class made an agreement that, and I hope I understood this right, that they will try to kill Koro-sensei until the deadline, and if they don’t, they’ll just make medicine and save him. So basically appeasing both sides, I guess? I didn’t quite understand that part.
I guess this was an ok episode, but I just wonder what’s going to happen now. I haven’t forgotten about Shiro/Yanagisawa, he has to appear again soon and I’m going to wait for that in these next 6 episodes. This show likes surprising me. Also, Ritsu experiencing happiness and her love for being in the classroom made me very happy, and a little emotional. What a sweet computer program. :’)
