Hi there, this is Yukipapapa the writer. “Space Patrol Luluco” is now in its third episode. Luluco receives a Space Patrol assignment to bust an illegal appli trader in town. New characters join the show and engage in a super intense machine gun fight. Luluco’s slapstick rumpus life escalates to even bigger chaos. Let’s waste no time in taking a close look at episode 3!
Synopsis: Episode 3
Nova is a good-looking transfer student, and, a Space Patrol Officer, like Luluco herself. He is also her big-ban-size first love. Nova and Luluco receive an assignment to capture a criminal who sells an illegal appli in their school premises, creating a hot bed of multiple space crimes among youth. Luluco begins search, and runs into an unexpected face.
Highlight 1: A Feisty Free-Spirit, Ms. Midori Save-The-World
As Luluco starts searching her school for a clue of the illegal black hole appli seller, she runs into a girl known as “Midori”. Her full name? Midori Save-The-World. She is actually the illegal appli trader. First, Midori tactfully talks Luluco into sample the illegal appli. “You don’t need to buy it, you know, no pressure, just take a look, yeah?” Midori’s characteristics are in one word, firecracker. For one, she has underlings, a group of rough-and-big aliens who daringly call Midori “big sis.” Not only that, the moment she spots the good-looking Nova standing next to Luluco by the classroom door, she immediately apprehends him using her illegal appli. It’s just so impossible to guess what she’s going to do next.
But, Luluco gets the upper hand. After an intense exchange of machine gun battle, she arrests Midori. So that’s the end of Midori, she’s a goner. Oh no. Not so fast. Midori wants to hang out with Nova rather than doing times in jail alone. She wheedles Mr. Over Justice the Director-General of Space Patrol Ogikubo Branch into hiring her as a new member of the Space Patrol Organization.
Luluco doesn’t like Midori’s butting in between herself and Nova. But, for us viewers this is going to be fun to watch – how will Midori jazz up (or mess up) Luluco’s everyday life, plus, love life?
Highlight 2: Mysterious Nova’s Real Feelings
When Luluco launches a raid on Midori and her underlings all at once, Midori turns Nova into a hostage to use for her advantage. Luluco hesitates to continue fighting, because, what if she accidentally hits Nova? Nova calmly says to Luluco. “Don’t worry about me. Do it. You need to shoot her.”
Luluco makes up her minds in frustration, and then, does as told. Afterwards, she regrets her choice and recklessness. Again, Nova gently says to her. “Just be you. You are the best when you are you.” His voice is soft, encouraging, as if he wants to ratify Luluco’s performance.
There is something about him, though. Is he really incredibly sweet as he seems on the surface? Does he have a noble high standard as the proud officer of Space Patrol Organization? Or perhaps… He has a personal agenda that he never discloses…?
We don’t know anything about his real intentions behind his dazzling smile. And that’s, my friend, one more reason for us to keep coming back to this show.
