NEEDLESS episode 4 ~ Blade’s ONLY weakness…

Now here is a face I’ve never thought I’ll see

In this weeks episode, the first of the trio girls is introduced, Blade’s weakness is shown and…dancing around a campfire.

Thoughts: It was pretty clear that Mio (the pink haired loli girl of the group) was part of SIMEON’s group from the start so I knew that whatever she does, she can’t be trusted. Even so…I have totally and completely fallen for her cuteness and can only blame it on myself for being a weak guy…and possibly her amazing acting skills. Hilariously enough Eve has been particularly silent and slightly “depressive” during this episode and it was concerned around quite a surprising secret about Blade…

The episode starts off with a heavy amount of foreshadowing from Adam Arclight as he wakes up from a nightmare where it seems like he was stuck in a test tube and surrounded by scientists from the outside, sniggering and drinking champaign. This scene reminded me of how Mewtwo started off from the pokemon movie and the uncanny (and probably not intentional) reference to it made me laugh. But jokes come later as Arclight doesn’t seems like a guy with a funny bone and most importantly, he wants a new body…WHAT? Suddenly this whole thing about the “needless hunting” is starting to make a whole lot of sense and the pieces fit even tighter now that Arclight doesn’t want Blade dead…but rather, he wants his godlike body.

Much to the the other general’s annoyance who was sent to kill Blade, he found himself being called back by Arclight and told that he isn’t to carry out his initial order. Now when a man wants to kick ass, there isn’t anything stopping him from doing so, so naturally his annoyed response was expected. But since he didn’t tell Arclight the location of Blade it raises some suspicions on his loyalty.

Moving onto the side of “good”, in order to find more information about Adam Arclight, Uchida (you know, Fire Man yakuza guy from the previous episode) shows them an important insider who goes by the name of “Disk”. This Disk guy then tells them to go to Iron Mountain and to find him for whatever reasons he may have. But this turns out to be quite an adventure for the rest of the episode as the group travel to Iron Mountain, beating the crap out of any bandits who dare to show their ugly head.

Cruz talks to Eve about how amazing and undefeatable Blade is but Eve responds that he has an unforgivable weakness…
The truth is let out of the bag when Mio is heard running away from bandits in a high pitched loli kind of voice screams for help and Blade heroically jumps to the rescue despite being out of energy from starving for a whole day. What’s more, she called Mio; Mio-tan and even said the dreaded word for any GAR man of his stature to say…”moe”😄

So it turns out that Blade’s only weakness are girls but even more so if said girl is 3ft tall and yells “onii chan” a lot, and I can’t blame him for being a lolicon. This explains why Eve doesn’t get any love from Blade despite being female…she isn’t loli enough!
The group eventually lands themselves in the lair of Disk and after showing off their skills to the drones that Disk have set up for protection (unfortunately the only bit of the episode where it was simply awesome GAR!) reach their final destination and what they see wasn’t something they expected but much to Blade’s (and my) joy.

Overall it was another energetic and hugely entertaining episode to watch. If there is one thing this series excels at it has to be the quirky humour which you don’t expect the characters to come up with. Taking Blade to be a lolicon for instance, who can expect that? But you know what, it’s damn hilarious. The story is also moving along quite smoothly as well with each episode providing some information about the past and what to come and doing so in a brilliant pace. Mio also exerted herself to be more than just a helpless loli as she single handedly saved Yamada from a bottomless pit and now we even have a jiji aged loli who is actually a “mecha musume” right out of another anime. Just how many more tropes can this series fit in itself😄

Preview: To make up for the lack of GARness this episode, next one is going “heaven or hell” on us.

    Not much action, but over-the-top MOE is just as acceptable. The best part about Blade’s weakness is that Simeon will be sending lolis by the truckload once they find out about it, and that’s quite the non guilty pleasure of mine.🙂

    The story also did a good job in finally interesting me as well, as it was done a lot better than 30 old men sitting around a conference table talking.

    I can just see it now…an army of lolis with TNT sticks strapped to them and running towards Blade yelling: “onii chan!”.

    We will see just how well his body can cope😄

    This show just keeps getting better and better.😀

    Oh man, they took out a part from the manga about the Girls.

    I have no clue why it took me so long to realize this, but they’re wearing armor from the Monster Hunter series in the part you have labeled “…it’s loot hunting time!”

    I love this series even more now after seeing that.
