Which reinforces my beliefthat Mashiro willend the series as Queen, else why add a characterdevelopment/socialcommentary episode so late, if she's going to getkicked to the curb?Nope, Mashiro returns as Queen and starts asocialist reform of hermonarchy, which will cripple the economy 25 yearslater, but we'llburn that bridge after we cross it.What I want to know is how Mashiro survived Arika andNina's nuclear explosion.Same way Mai survived her space adventure in MH: hand wave and an explanation in the DVD specials.Natsuki and Nao roughing it will cement MO's ersatzRosa Giganteafamily. Stay tuned for a Guarderobe jailbreakassisted with Nao'sviolent mime gang. One of the best things about MO,has been Urayo'shilarious fan art featuring Natsuki, btw. The lasttwo with Natsuki"rebuilding" Guarderobe and Nao improving it,priceless.That makes it seem like Nao may be the next to go.That would suck if she get's offed before she canactually do something as a Pillar.If Nao does get offed, it'll be because she went against her better judgement. Which I don't see her doing right now, Pillar or not.And I must find this Urayo person's fan art.OK, I"ll be nice. http://www.fx.sakura.ne.jp/~urayo/main.htmIt was niceto hear Natsuki verbalize concern for Shizuru evenif it was fourthin her list of priorities.Well, at least they haven't completely forgotteneveryone's favorite lesbian couple.Nope, the token bone we get every episode. Which is good for Sunrise considering their track record with other fan favorite couples with horrible contractions (AsuCaga anyone?)Another plot hole/nitpick: Yukino states that Nagididn't violate any international laws. How isconspiring with a terrorist organization to invade acountry NOT a violation of international law?
