It has been a number of months because the battle between Rekka and Lutoh. The institution of an impartial Granedger is pending, with Atlee chosen to be the queen of this new nation. The opposite polities of Lingalind collect to pay their respects for this momentous signing. Issues seem calm for the second, and many aged pals and allies come to want the Granedger properly. The Prax Armored Division even goes as far as to defect from Lutoh to the brand new Granedger nation. Nevertheless, most of the outdated divisions are nonetheless there and never all current belief each other.
In the meantime, Bacok Arrow and Shu journey to Rekka to rearrange a settlement settlement there. Ren takes offense to their presence and makes an attempt to assassinate Shu, however he bluffs to flee and Bacok Arrow retains her at bay. Kai arrives and places an finish to the combating, revealing that he has been studying the traditional texts and presses Shu for lacking gaps within the information. Rekka’s new advisor means that Ren kill him to provide Emperor Zetsu an excuse to assault the Granedger, however a sudden assault on Rekka makes everybody scatter. Over Rekka’s capital a brand new flying crimson battleship has arrived and begins laying waste to the town. It’s being managed by Tae Howa, the disgraced former Rekka noble, who was gifted the car by Elect Supreme Rudolph.
Wow, this one genuinely stunned me.
I’m regularly impressed with the plotting of the sequence, and I believe Kazuki Nakashima is admittedly delivering on this regard. Initially, I felt that the political binary of Lutoh versus Rekka was purposefully easy in order that it might act as a backdrop that the viewers wouldn’t must assume a lot about whereas the robots have been punching. It has shortly develop into clear that not solely are issues a lot, a lot extra nuanced than they initially appeared, however I believe there solely being two main political teams is a giant profit. There may be an more and more giant forged with divided or conflicting loyalties, aspect switching, double brokers, and so forth. and the “simplicity” of the 2 main states is useful in holding all of it straight.
I do know I’m liable to being stunned by plot twists, however wow the revelation of the brand new battleship was genuinely surprising. I assumed there was some highly effective object or relic or one thing that Shu was after – his drive to go away needed to be coming from someplace – however the remaining moments with Tae piloting the vessel got here by full shock. I assumed he was being given a brand new highly effective Briheight, however a second battleship? Undoubtedly an thrilling shock and one more tectonic shift within the geopolitical panorama.
As a minor notice, it was actually candy that Atlee received to be queen. Having that total scene the place everybody mentioned the sensible and private causes that Atlee was chosen to be their chief was a young second I assumed.
