Hello this is yukipapapa, the writer. The second episode of Space Patrol Luluco has aired, have you got a chance to watch it yet? The first episode was dedicated mostly to introduce the set-up in zippy zip zap, but, compared to the last time, this round feels like the story moves on in good pace. You will see that Luluco falls in love with a boy. Luluco and the new character, as well as other characters, show cute reactions that make you go “aww…” Oh yeah. Hey, are you ready? Let’s look at this episode together.
Highlight 1: Good-Looking Transfer Student “Alpha Omega Nova”
Out of the blue, a meteorite sweeps into Luluco’s classroom. It blows up everything in the room, and from the cracked-open meteorite, a blond-haired “ikemen” (good-looking) boy appears. His name is ΑΩNova (Alpha-Omega-Nova). He is confident, cool, and darn-good looking. He has the sweetest smile, and maybe a touch of showy flair in his mannerism. But. He’s not just about the look, baby! He can admonish criminals with no mercy. Take no criminals, yes sir! That means, he has both sweet and spicy sides. Luluco falls in love with him almost instantly, but, that’s understandable, yes? If you don’t believe me, just look at how dazzling his smile is, especially when he looks at Luluco!
So he is not only cute and adorable but also can he get things done. A high-spec male character joins the show. What a treat for “Shokotan” (cute things) lovers! This just makes the show so much more fun to watch, right? What other looks can we expect to see? Aww!
Highlight 2: Story Unfolds
So, in the previous episode, we watched Luluco’s father getting transformed into an icicle, we heard Luluco being assigned to the Space Patrol officer role. Everything happened all at once, we were swept up by the storm. In this round, we are finally going to learn a little bit of background as to why things are happening.
First things first, the town where Luluco lives, named “Ogikubo” used to be under the Japanese government like every other town, but, at some point of the history, it was sold, in order to help the nation recover from financial difficulties. The buyer or other details of the deal remain untold. This could be a sub plot for the future…? I don’t know.
So Ogikubo was opened up for aliens to come move in, and sure enough, a lot of aliens immigrated and their generations became a part of the Japanese society. Luluco grew up in such unique diverse community, so, to her eyes the earth people and the galaxy people don’t look different.
Luluco and Nova together receive an assignment to investigate an unauthorized application that is penetrating their community. In this unique and diverse town of Ogikubo, how will they execute their first assignment, and how will their relationship blossom…? Let’s sit back and watch!
Highlight 3: Luluco’s Romance
“Let’s work together.”
Says Nova, with an adorably sweet and innocent smile. Luluco melts with that dazzling sight, and accidentally lets her suits ability goes loose. Oops! Blushed, Luluco stairs back at Nova. Just look at Luluco’s sparkling eyes with dancing lights like the sunny and shimmering water surface. Genuine young love, ahhhh!
Her love crush on Nova begins immediately after the story starts get moving. How does the love factor impact the main story line? Can we expect to see more of her cute reactions?
