Seriously, whoever the guy was who created that mansion deserves a medal; I salute you! 😀
Thoughts: Well for all things fanservice and sexy, I really have no other choice but to give this episode a 10/10 for getting me both laughing my ass off and excited at the same time. Really, good job Needless, this has officially become the best series this season without doubt and I hope it continues out this way (unlike Basquash, which is fluctuating up and down like the stock market).
The main part of this episode focused on the beautiful trio and their adventures as they try and find Eve who has escaped into a mansion which should have belong to Kinzo. No seriously, there is a mountain of gold in this mansion which screams Beatrice’s doing…and to add a bit of variety to the manhunt, the mansion is loaded with more tricks to entertain than you can shake a stick at it. Not to mention that all the games subsequently strips the girls of their garments in a series of mind boggling challenges. Though rather than being lewd, on the contrary, I find that the fanservice from this series rather tasteful and this episode even brought me a sense of (borrowing the term from another AS forum goer) “ero kawaii”. I appreciate this type of fanservice more than the usual “in your face-shake your boobs” type of stuff as it is usually more creative and mixes in more that one emotion; in this case it is gut busting humour and cuteness.
And once again the point of this series being cliched is working “just as planned” in my mind since there are obvious classic plot holes such as, if Setsuna has super speed as her needless skill then why the heck would the gang need to chase Eve all over the place? But that is exactly what makes the series enjoyable to watch as such “illogical” decisions is what lead us to such a wonderful adventure and without it, it just wouldn’t feel the same. “GO NEEDLESS!” I’d say 🙂
The plot once again advances as well near the end of the episode with Adam Arclight broadcasting a message (which was interrupted unexpectedly XD) to the whole area. It seems like he is holding a challenge to all the residents around the black spot which is an obvious bait for Blade and the others to crash the party in the end. Sadly, Eve is now in a terrible state and has been captured by SIMEON, chained up and will probably be tortured (NOOOOOOOO!).
Meanwhile, with the loss of Eve, the group gains a new member in the form of Disk and I have to say that she is fast becoming my favourite character due to her hilarious sense of character. Not bad for a 100 year old granny eh? But it is on the outside that counts and Disk sure is loading the correct personality data. It was a shame that she changed her outfit to something more reserved but she probably isn’t wearing any underwear.
Anyway it was another brilliant Needless episode emphasised by the fact that it is 6am and I’m determined to finish this entry before going to bed. If only Needless didn’t air so late every time than maybe I would have a goodnight sleep every Thursday.
Preview: MORE on the trios kicking butt and Kinzo’s gold!
Screen caps and comments:
Through some unexplainable reason Eve has managed to escape her ropes
Which puts the girls in a state of shock thinking what Riru will do to them if they return with no hostage
But Eve herself hasn’t gotten very far due to hunger and hides in an abandoned mansion
Disk explains the situation to the rest and demands that she joins them in getting Eve back
Blade laughs at the idea thinking that she would be dead weight but…
What do you know, Disk turns out to be a needless herself
Needless ability: scanner
But before Blade agrees to let her join, he has one important question
“Are you able to read the 3 sizes of girls!?”
And thus the deal was made
Surprisingly, Disk changes into less revealing clothes
But it obviously ticked a fetish bone on Blade
“Where did you hide the data!?”
“Here”~ OH SHIIII!
Welcome to Kinzo’s mansion
And I wasn’t kidding about the mountain of gold as you can see
Apparently, the guy who build this remarkable mansion was called Goldy Locks (LOL WTF?)
Beatrice…you sure have grown
It seems that the guy behind this also didn’t scamp out on a cheap security system as it immediately kicks in telling the girls to drop their weapons
Sadly, I can’t read what Kuchinashi named her weapon
But we do know that Mio’s bear is actually a rabbit
First challenge from the wacky mansion, getting pass the flames
Quick thinking Setsuna steps up to the challange by using her shirt buttons as plugs
However, she runs out of buttons and…
Thankfully they survive
But they then drop into a pit trap
Without a way out, it was up to Setsuna again to think of a plan (methinks this girl is the leader)
Which involved the removal of their clothes (NICE JOB!)
YAY it works!
Hey I know that perverted face from somewhere
Ah well, just enjoy the service 😀
Meanwhile Eve was able to find some drinks but…
Dero Doro Light? That sucks, and thus Eve runs off again
If anything, Kuchinashi is proving to be the funniest mute I have ever seen 😄
The final round and this time it had something to do with weights
The girls find out that to stop the timer they have to have a combined weight of 121kg…
MORE STRIPPING!!! 😀
“And thus the door to gold land opened”
However, their relief was short lived as here we have an exhausted Eve hanging from the roof
So guess what happens when she falls
And the next thing Kuchinashi knows, is that she is in heaven ^^
And so am I…
And so is her hahaha~
Meanwhile, Adam suddenly broadcasts some news
While the girls are ejected from the mansion cannon style
“Greetings, my name is Adam Arc-“
(It took me a while to screen cap this since it happened so fast XD)
Bloody fist…I’m scared D:
So as the episode ends, the trio recieve a lot of praises from Riru
But what about the prisoner, well Mio knows
And I don’t want to know…oh gosh what will happen to poor Eve ;___;
