KR Gaim 38 released

We're back? Oh, we're back. Good. I think I slipped into some kind of sugar coma and have been delirious for the last two weeks. I even had a dream that Gaim was playing soccer for no reason.

Ryouma's back! And apparently he forgot his pants and professor coat (Or maybe he stole some kid's cloths when he arrived back on Earth). Guess he DOESN'T prepare for everything.

Everything's leading to a showdown at Yggdrasill Tower. How exciting!

Oh, and Micchi is officially crazy now. I'm glad the scenes of Takatora from the preview weren't actually him.

I agree, that Takatora illusion remains on Micchi's.

Maybe Micchi fakes his smile while taking Mai with the overlord.

Ryouma, where did you find that two colored coat? Mad scientists don't usually tend to wear the best of clothes.

Micchi now has a ghost brother. Redue, reconsider your human ally since your current one is broken.

I think Redue is quite enjoying her broken toy. Didn't she say that's what she likes best?

No one is surprised by how glad I am that Ryouma is back. I love Professor Exposition Dump. Must more enjoyable than Overlord Exposition Dump. And he's just such an unmitigated asshole, he really just does not understand how human empathy or sympathy work, and it's hilarious. Also, "secret tunnels" huh, Ryouma? I'm just thinking of the Secret Tunnel song from A:TLA now.

I completely forgot about Kaito's wound.

The unnamed Overlords that Kouta took out now have names. It seems a little late for trying to give personality to enemies that had no character development.

I really wanted Mai to at least kick Micchi in the nuts for being so annoying. It wouldn't solve anything but it would at least ease some of my frustration with Mai being reduced to a boring damsel in distress plot device. Redue already has hostages at Yggdrasilll Tower so it doesn't really raise the stakes.

They've said their names before. The only one not mentioned is the new Overlord, but his name is on the Gaim website.

I think Redue referred to Duduonshu by name at least once. And Gurinsha's name appears a couple times during the few episodes he's on.

Great episode! But... Now Mai's a damsel in distress. Like we didn't see that coming ages ago. >_> Yaaaaaaaaaaawn. I mean, I've never been interested in her character to begin with and now she's an overly tried plot-device. Joy.

Anyway, Takasugi Mahiro deserves ALL THE REWARDS. Seriously if the kid doesn't win anything after this performance I'm going to cry. I LOVE watching Mitsuzane on screen now. *_*

Redyue referred Sagara as snake.

Suddenly Micchi overpowered Kiwami and Genesis Baron. He raped them so fucking easy.

Professor possibly secured Takatora's "body"in that sea. He might saw everything and schemming something again.

Roshuo aren't bad considering he look foward to mankind built their own future.

I guess insanity boosts your power level so that you can beat the combined forces of Kiwami Arms and Lemon Energy together.

I'm surprised the life force draining contraption is still running like no one cares or forgot about those people. Like, hey Kouta, we're still draining your sister's life force while you're running around looking for Takatora and chatting up with Mai and co. Let's capture Mai to turn the plot back on its rails.

Overall that was a solid episode, but I am disappointed by the unresolved fate of Takatora. Having him appear in the preview only to be a delusion was a fantastic fake-out. However it means his "death" has yet to be properly resolved. Considering he has already fallen off of a cliff once, is he really dead this time? We're only 36 episodes in, so it seems way too early to kill him.

Also, this episode is an unfortunate example of how the writers are struggling with having happy moments in such a dire story. Having Mai, Kaito, and Kouta so cheerfully talking about their futures when the world around them is basically coming to an end is really hard to accept. They don't need to be emo, but it's difficult to imagine anyone being that happy in this kind of situation.

That's practically a toku trope, isn't it?

Triple Lemon scene! Ryoma has skinny legs, first time he's worn shorts.

What is the sudden reason Micchy is so strong? Because he's gone batshit insane? Is Kaito weakened from his wound and Kouta still holding back (why). I know powerlevels in toku is ridiculous, but Micchy has never been a great fighter and should be destroyed 2 on 1, especially by Gaim and Baron.

Yeah basically. Kouta's still holding back because he still believes in Micchi and Kaito knows it. On the other hand, Micchi doesn't give a fuck and is batshit insane as you guys have said.
