And she isn’t talking about “you know what on a male species”
Ah wow, just wow. I don’t know what has gotten into Miyafuji but really…whatever you are into I guess (I’m not out there to judge). So if it isn’t having sexual dream with your fellow team mates or feeling them up whilst they are down and out I think this episode did a good job on more pressing matter. That is, to get to know the case more (and at the end of the day to kick some neuroi butt).
Thoughts: This episode was about the speed of sound and the dream to break that barrier by Shirley (whose full name I can’t find anywhere…what the hell?) who was a former bike racer and joined the witches in her speeding prime believing that flying is the way to go for a speed junkie like her.
The episode also co starred Francesca Lucchini, who was responsible for the headache I have been experiencing throughout the episode due to her high pitched voice. She also played a part in Shirely reaching her dream though an unfortunate accident and I seriously didn’t expect the ending to play out so perfectly (as…you know…messing with a broken engine when you don’t have a clue about it is a bad idea especially if it was designed for speed).
So, having this gigantic explosion scene in mind
with body parts belonging to Shirley flying off to sea I was somewhat surprised that it didn’t happen as I imagined it.
But there you have it. Stike Witches is a series where dream fulfillment is a core principle and definitely someone else realised her dream other than Shirley in this episode. And that someone happened to be Miyafuji…like I said earlier, whatever she is into but this pretty much confirms the yuri potential in this series (I wouldn’t expect less either because of the way these girls dress…temptations stike hard).
Yet another sound episode but as with the problems with Sky Girls, the introductions are taking their toll on me as things become increasingly more repetitive (though not at the level of Sky Girls…yet).
Screen picks and “wise guy” comments:
She saw them clearly ^^
NOOOOO! Miyafuji, What have you become D:
Here’s one thing I don’t get…who do female characters like Miyafuji always get so excited when they are told that they are going on a trip to the beach. It’s like they have just taken a bag of sugar or something…
My thoughts exactly
Are the goggles really worth the price of an engine?
Now this is how you doggy paddle, with your ass high in the air
Oh snap I forgot to mention. So the objective of going to the beach was not to have fun but for training. A what-if scenario for if you fall into the sea with the strike unit on. Personally I think they should have jumped in when they realised that the girls wern’t coming back up but that’s just me.
SHIII! It’s gonna blow!!
I’m looking forward to the DVDs
