Aaaand the horrid Salty Dog is back, this time with an icy blond sent by the Ark Faction – I think, I am honestly so confused with this show – and she gets owned, basically.

Plot

Hana’s been sent to the Tenkaido to keep her safe from anyone who might be after her. Inspector Andou is sent to the Tanegashima base in order to tell them that the Midsummer Knights are no longer needed or necessary, her feelings strengthened when she sees that they really are children. Her more nefarious plan, though, is to seek out Hana’s whereabouts and report back to the Ark Faction who tell her that she hadn’t even heard from their source on the Tenkaido that they had not reported her. Meanwhile Siren does her singing thing inside that machine of hers, collecting orgone energy in order to launch an attack, two at a time, on the Impacters. This time Amara and Zin use the two capsules of energy to attack. The gang at Tanegashima launch Teppei and Daichi in their suits but Andou informs them that she’s sent Cerberus, a purely robotic Impacter without any human working it. Unfortunately Amara hacks into it and gets it on her side and Teppei and Daichi are a tad bit put out by the sheer power on their side. It doesn’t take long, though, for our favourite magical girl Akari to hack back into them and then hack into the Planetary Gears through a backdoor, and they’re defeated by Teppei and Daichi in an awesome double teamup that just looked pretty cool.

Oh, also, the Puck-infested Kube is cheating on his secretary like, right in front of her with another co-worker. That jerk. Girl, you deserve better. Or rather, you deserve someone who isn’t possessed by a sex-crazed alien robot.

The Characters/Episode Highlights

Andou was kind cool with all her iciness and bravado and it was actually kind of funny to see her completely outwitted by Akari. Basically the gang told her that she wasn’t as smart as she thought she was and to shove it and leave the Midsummer Knights alone. Thaaat might have been a bad idea – MAKE FRIENDS WITH YOUR ENEMIES, GUYS – and she walked away with her thoughts on the four kids.

And…that was pretty much it. I mean, I did enjoy the fight between Teppei, Daichi, Amara and Zin, because there was some cool teamwork and this show’s fight scenes are always kind of cool, but the episode was kind of boring in my opinion, so…

Oh! Another part I really liked was the way Akari kept on saying that Teppei and Daichi were two boys in love with each other because it’s so true. They’ve got this really sweet bromance going on, really, and I think it’s quite cute. ^^

The Verdict

It was all right. Nothing special, really, apart from the not-really-there allusions to boys in love, the general coolness of Akari, who is by far my favourite character – I really miss EijiAkira Ishida’s character and Teppei’s father for any who remembers that far back. But otherwise it was a pretty boring episode. *shrugs*

One thought on “Captain Earth: Episode 17

  1. And then Puck was so waist-deep in women, it completely forgot what its evil plans were supposed to be. Leaving Globe, the Gears and the Dogs to pick up the show’s pace. (” ^^)
    There is still the mystery of the blue-haired schoolgirl with the recorder who led Daichi to the robot in Ep 1, and the one who gave Teppei his Livlaster though.

    PS. Captain’s character designs are by Fumi Minato, an erotic manga artist. No wonder the female characters like Moco and Hana look so appealing. ^^
