For those reading my webcomic, I just gave it an impomptu update with a new page so if you’d like to see it, click the Southern Cross tag above the Moeronpan banner.
The Disckonian that Baka ‘killed’ doesn’t seem happy and escapes the premises, promising to return to kill Baka and leaving everyone dreading the worst. As much as Kraft resents Baka, he can’t let him be killed as he is required for the interplanetary conference. A little is learnt about the background of the two, giving Kraft quite a lot of reason to resent Baka. He also remembers, however, that someone like Baka should have a lot of interplanetary knowledge, including information on the Disckonians, such as their weak points. Since Baka allegedly lost his memory in the crash, Kraft is more than happy to beat him up until his memory is jogged.
Eventually, they do all find one thing out. That every damn thing that has happened, starting from before Baka landed on earth, was entirely Just as Planned by him and was merely to test his guards’ loyalty.
Oh Baka, you fabulous bastard, you. This show has been springing unexpected twists on me all the damn time, but this was one I really didn’t see coming. And it says loads about Baka’s personality, and leaves me wanting to know what other crazy things he does. The guy is a total dick, but for a total dick he sure is loveable. His ‘big reveal’ of the scheme, set out in lulzy Japanese tv-show format, was hilarious. I don’t really think Kraft beating him up was part of the plan though.
Although all the ‘drama’ turned out to be fake (those Disckonians sure are a loveable bunch, actually), the next episode preview does hint at something potentially more serious. I’m interested to see if there will be any ‘real’ drama in the series rather than Baka’s ridiculously orchestrated schemes. Baka’s now on earth to stay, and I’m glad his guards will be too, because I really love those guys.
Meanwhile, I eagerly await where this series is going to go next. However, my net’s been acting up and I haven’t been able to watch everything I want to at the moment, so there’s a chance that episode 4 and 5 will be a batch review.
