20027Mai Otome 18 (Bubble, Bubble, SPOILS and Trouble)
- Feb 13, 2006Fallout from OMGWTFBBQ!!!!!111one 17 this week, focusing on the once and future Queen of Windbloom.**********SPOILERSPACE**********Since I didn't feel like writing a summary this week, and the sub is out already this will be brief.Mashiro, scared and alone, learns about poor people, misery, mob mentality, and loyalty. Which reinforces my belief that Mashiro will end the series as Queen, else why add a character development/social commentary episode so late, if she's going to get kicked to the curb? Nope, Mashiro returns as Queen and starts a socialist reform of her monarchy, which will cripple the economy 25 years later, but we'll burn that bridge after we cross it.Aoi gets voted off the island, but is infinitely more likely to return than Erstin, no body after all. Given that, prior to Erstin, everyone who went green sparkly was a Schwarz mook, (when's the last time mooks got a happy ending?) Erstin stays dead, I think. Aoi will wander out of the desert in 26, the new master of Tai Chi and unifies China. Blame Zyl for putting that idea in my head. ;)Note: Reset probability increases proportionately to the number of named "good guy" characters that are eliminated.Nagi and Smith figure out they can't use any shortcuts, thus setting up the need for Mashiro, Arika and Nina to blah, blah, blah, you know the drill.Natsuki and Nao roughing it will cement MO's ersatz Rosa Gigantea family. Stay tuned for a Guarderobe jailbreak assisted with Nao's violent mime gang. One of the best things about MO, has been Urayo's hilarious fan art featuring Natsuki, btw. The last two with Natsuki "rebuilding" Guarderobe and Nao improving it, priceless. It was nice to hear Natsuki verbalize concern for Shizuru even if it was fourth in her list of priorities.Oh, Nina and your brink of an emotional breakdown. You need a shoulder to cry on. You know who is good at that, Erstin. Oh wait, never mind.Oh, Sergey with your manly wounds and your manly angst. Beaten by a precocious 15 year old, you know who feels ya? Lu Buwei.Oh, Haruka and your one note joke. I hope they give you something cool like the Shizuru headbutt in MH.Oh, Miyu, you're such a tease, with your cryptic deus ex machina and MH hints, and your Vampire Hunter D garb. You make the fanboys swoon.Next up. the Aftermath Meanwhile episode, starring Midori "She's not bad, she's just drawn that way." Also featuring the Shizuru/Tomoe duet "Get away from me, you crazy b*tch!" Miss Maria gets all Vichy France up in here. Chie is pissed that Aoi gets some time off and she doesn't, and Nina gets her stylish meister robe.
