Episode description (from CR): Ryuko’s battle against the Elite Four takes to the skies! Meanwhile, more spectators converge on Honnouji Academy. But who is the mysterious girl strolling through town and what secrets does she hold?
The fierce battle between Nonon and Ryuko continues this episode. Nonon’s airship isn’t very lucky and gets blown up by Ryuko rather quickly. Nonon will not be deterred however and performs an encore. An encore of really deadly music and a new, flashy outfit. Ryuko appears to meditate and beat Nonon’s ridiculous sound attack, which makes no sense, but ok. I’ll take it, I guess.
This leads Sanageyama to get his chance to fight, and beat, Ryuko. However he doesn’t last long either as Nui Harime comes in and destroys his Goku Uniform. Nui Harime, a ‘cute’ girl sent in by Satsuki’s mother Faygo Kiryuin, oops, I meant Ragyo. Her name is Ragyo. I think Faygo fits her a tad better, though, let’s be honest. Anyway, Harime comes in, riles Satsuki a little, destroys Sanageyama’s Goku uniform, and then for her grand finale pulls out half a scissor blade from her dress.
Harime makes a very interesting statement claiming that she is the one who killed Ryuko’s father. I’m not sure I believe her, but honestly Ryuko took it bad and quite frankly snapped. Then the episode cuts off. Woo~ Cliff hangers, amiright?
In the background of Ryuko’s fighting endeavors though, Tsumugu Kinagase (Mohawk guy) appears and gives Mikisugi a bullet that looks to be made out of life fibers, but really that’s just a guess. Mako continues to be the most entertaining thing this episode by continually p*ssing off the ex-student council members. And for our last bit of random episode happenings, it appears that Satsuki is using these fights to beef up her student council members Goku uniforms. At one point in the episode Satsuki starts talking to Iori (that’s the sewing guy) and asks if he has finished analyzing the uniforms. Iori responds that he has gone over both Inumuta’s and Gamagoori’s uniforms and is working on Nonon’s. So I suppose the ex-student council members will get their Goku uniforms back at some point. Afterall, what other ‘friends’ does Satsuki have?
