Hey there, this is Yukipapapa, the writer.
This is the fifth episode of “Space Patrol Luluco.” The show features a powerful mom figure in a grandiose scale, and also hints a reason why Luluco grew up to want a super normal life. This is the first time for the viewers to uncover the mystery surrounding Luluco’s up bringing. So, in this episode, we are going to dig deeper into the details. OK? Let’s move on to the review.
Synopsis Episode 5
A tremendous foe has launched an attack against the Space Patrol Ogikubo branch. In order to protect the fellow officers, the Director-General of the Space Patrol, Mr. Over Justice, rises to the challenge. “Justice is Oveeeeerrrrr!”
Highlight 1: Invincible Enemy Lalaco God-Speed Appears! What Does She Want?
Luluco’s mother, Lalaco, abducted Luluco as soon as she met her in the universe in the previous episode. She descends from the outer space all the way to the town of Ogikubo, with Luluco in captivity, and then, discloses that she is the Space Pirate, known as Captain Lalaco God-Speed.
Three of the Space Patrol officers jump on her, but, she quickly repels the attack with a single blow. Mr. Over Justice, The Director-General of the Space Patrol Ogikubo Branch, attempts to knock her out but she dodges that too, and in return, she launches a counter-attack, which, pretty finishes the Over Justice, plus, the entire Space Patrol Office. Her combat ability is totally off the chart.
In the end, she uses her giant spaceship to literally root up the entire section of Ogikubo from the ground, and, transports it to the space. This is crazy! Absolutely out of control!
This grandiose scale is equal to the set up used in “Gurren Lagann” and “Kill la Kill” I would say that this is another great example of the great creativity displayed by the TRIGGER production team.
“I do what I want to do”
Says Lalaco, and she uproots the entire city. What exactly does she want? We gotta stay tuned, because whatever that might be, I’m sure we will find out the secret of Luluco’s family.
On the side note, I must comment on Lalaco’s curvicious sexy outfit, that’s totally out of control, too!
She’s wearing a long cape with fluffy fur collar, and below the cape, a bare minimum fabric clings to the body, revealing her gorgeous cleavage, small waist, and curvy thighs. Erotic! I bet boys can’t take eyes off of her. Can someone already start working on her figure design, please?
Highlight 2: Luluco’s Dad Comeback?
Luluco’s monologue: “My mom has done everything and anything that she wanted. The only person who can stop her is…” Luluco didn’t finish the sentence.
Lalaco the mom reveals that she doesn’t want dad to step in and talk her out from what she wants to do. She doesn’t want him to recover from that frozen status.
So if you put these together, you easily get to an answer, right? In the next episode, will Luluco’s dad come around from the coma and will that lead to the couple’s fight…?
Luluco’s mom is incredibly strong. Space Patrol is no match to her. Luluco’s dad might be the only one who can stop her.
So all this time I was under the impression that her dad is just a tired middle-aged guy, but, looks like he’s got more than what we know.
Let’s look forward to see what kind of crazy battle awaits us. Yay, I can’t wait!
