Hello, yukipapapa here.
Well, folks! We are now at the sixth episode of Space Patrol Luluco, which marks the last episode of the second season. Luluco’s father, Keiji, makes a come-back. The excitement heats up to the boiling point! It’s hot. It’s burning. Feel the massive heat radiating from the screen.
Now, let’s move on to the review part.
Synopsis: Episode 6: That One Part Awaken
The Space Patrol Unit Ogikubo Branch is in a dire situation. Luluco, Midori, Nova feel desperate as they are out of ideas what needs to be done to help Ogikubo. The Director-General Overjustice comes up with a brilliant plan; that guy finally awakens from a slumber…!
Highlight 1: Luluco’s Dad Comes Back! (Just the Head)
Luluco’s father, Keiji, has been preserved in ice. His ice-cladded body was chopped up in multiple pieces. Luluco’s mother, Lalaco, robbed the majority of them in the previous episode. Only a part of his head, around his eyes and the brain cut out like tree trunk, remains in Luluco’s hand.
The Director-General Over Justice makes a special arrangement so that Keiji can speak what he has in mind.
The amazing voice actor who performs Keiji is Mitsuo Iwata, who is also known as the voice of Kaneda in AKIRA.
You will find that this dad figure, Keiji, in this show, is ultra passionate. I would rather say he is overwhelmingly fanatic! When he speaks, he has only one volume setting. Maximum. He’s got only a block of head left in him, but, he spits from the speaker and bounces around the screen, he’s just so out of control.
When Keiji and the Space Patrol Organization’s members all together launch into space in the spaceship, Keiji and the Director-General Overjusitce have a heated debate about what is justice. The speedy and frenzy exchange is a chockablock of gutty argument; I bet you will be fascinated!
Keiji’s presence is ultra prominent, it feels like he is the main character of the robot animation show. I mean, he’s so obsessed with his mission that I almost felt cleansed. It makes me wonder, though, once he receives all of his body parts back, can he be even more frenzy? How far would that go?
Highlight 2: Poison to Poison – Midori Save The World!
Lalaco shoplifted the entire town of Ogikubo, and, put it on the sale. In order to prevent the illegal transaction and to restore the normal state of Ogikubo, Luluco and her friends ride in a spaceship to the galaxy.
While Luluco and Keiji try to persuade Lalaco to listen to them, someone agrees to the price tag of Ogikubo and Lalaco starts processing the order.
That moment, Midori Save-The-World, rises to the challenge. She was once a delinquent and the mastermind of the illegal shoplifting appli that corrupted Luluco’s high school. She sends an instruction to her associates to collect all the appli on stock. Millions of them. She combines them to a massive force that steals back the pirate ship of Lalaco, who is still carrying the Ogikubo with her ship.
“If you need a twisted justice, you’ve come to the right place, baby!”
Midori grins, like a bad guy. I love that attitude, and the phrase, too, you are the true bad-ass boss, girl!
Even the mighty Lalaco gets flummoxed and falls powerless before the emerging leader Midori Save-The-World…! Go Midori, you can do it!
Highlight 3: To Be Continued … To The Next Season!
While Lalaco and the Space Patrol Teams are fighting over the ownership of Ogikubo, the sale transaction is moving along, which transfer the property right of Ogikubo to the new wealthy owner. The giant gate that floats in the galaxy starts vacuuming the land of Ogikubo. Simultaneously, Midori’s massive shoplifting appli is trying to swallow the land of Ogikubo and Lalaco’s pirate ship, altogether. The two forces collide. The closing gate and warp ring starts deforming, twisting, and… pop!
When she comes around, Luluco realizes that their spaceship is traveling to an unknown place. The force of galactic collision seems to have pushed the ship out to a different layer of space. In front of Luluco’s space ship, floats a black and round planet, which is wrapped in hundreds and thousands of red gleaming lines.
What is this planet?
Where did Lalaco go?
What is going to happen to Luluco and her friends?
And… what about the future of Ogikubo?
The scale of the story keeps getting bigger and better. It’s just so impossible not to expect more shebang from the next season, right?
