One shot, one kill.
Ooarai has taken full advantage of Alisa’s radio intercepting balloon. They’ve drawn out Saunders flag tank and baited their main force far from the action. With Alisa’s tank taking heavy fire from the whole Ooarai squad, she was forced to admit her hand to Kay. While Kay was disappointed in Alisa’s actions, she’ll make it back up to Ooarai. Saunders will only be moving with five tanks to keep things fair. Still, it wasn’t long before Kay and those behind her caught up to Ooarai. As the Ooarai squad began to be picked off one by one, Miho bet everything on a risky play. Hana has landed her most powerful arrangement yet. Right as team Anglerfish was about to be eliminated, she fired a clean shot upon Saunders flag tank. Once the dust had settled, Ooarai earned themselves a victory, and a lasting friendship from Kay.
Although the majority of this episode was action based, there were a few minor things that should be given attention. Most notably, Alisa brought up the topic of Ooarai Girls Academy being closed down. She found it amazing how hard they were trying to win, but there’s a reason behind that. While Miho and friends aren’t currently aware, the student council didn’t bring back senshado just for fun. It’s only a matter of time before the entire squad finds out, though. Moreover, this episode ended off on a dramatic note. Mako’s grandmother collapsed back on the school carrier, yet that’s not the important part. Miho’s older sister, Maho, was the one that came to their aid. Even though they may not currently be on the best terms, Maho still cares for her little sister. Anyhow, Ooarai has defied all expectations. Enjoy a well deserved victory!
Their competition doesn’t end here. We’re searching for more tanks next time.
