We’ve got a good show here. Shipping, fighting, explosions, what’s not to love!
So we start off the episode with this.
Does everyone in this anime have huge boobs? I’m not complaining just asking…
So after a quick talk about the coicendence that they’re all on the same squad, Nana the Squad Leader makes her introduction.
I have to say that it’s very refreshing to Yui Horie’s voice not coming out of Carla from Fairy Tail. I haven’t seen much of her in anything else so it’s good for me to see her in a new role.
Also Nana makes a pun. See since they’re the Fourth Peacekeeper squad, they are called K-4 but it’s pronounced K-Yon similar to the anime to the K-On!
So after the still awesome opening by Minori Chihara(which character is she going to be?! I need to know.) we see a train called Black Star getting preped to go.
Looks like someone called in a bomb threat at the station in Yokohama and Gonou, being the commander of the Riot Police, is going there to check it out.
Note:They are currently in Tokyo which is in the Tokyo Prefecture of Japan. They’re traveling to Yokohama which is in the Kanagawa prefecture. Kanagawa is pretty much Tokyo’s neighbor and a journey between the two takes thirty minutes either way because they are in the same region of Kanto. Yes the name is the same as Pokemon I know.
So after they leave, Naoto whines about how he was supposed to be a train driver and not a peacekeeper. Quit whining man! You stopped a purse snatcher and used some pretty creative ways to catch up with them.
That’s right time to get into action.
Ooh What is it?
So your job is basically hold down the fort until Gonou stops being a sexy badass? You’ll be at that fort for awhile…
Aoi complains how can they be PSF members if they aren’t even in the action?
After that an old lady asks how to get to the platform and Aoi just points her over to the place while Naoto walks her over.
Look at you man. Being all chirvilous and what not.
After that we get a crying kid and guys try to get him to stop but of course things like this need a woman’s touch. So Koumi comforts him.
Lucky brat. Reminds me of Momonosuke of One Piece. Come on! He’s a boy. He knows what he’s doing!
So we cut to Aoi complaining to Nana that they’re basically like mall cops.
Hahaha! Good one!
Nana gets out of her seat and explains that they are protecting the people. It’s just not in a flash and obvious like Gonou does. They’re needed in a different way basically.
So to show her takes her gun in the most sexual way possible.
After that we cut to Naoto and Koumi at the lost and found with the cute pup from yesterday. Then we go to our group hanging posters but what’s weird is this.
Magic!!! Someone’s casting magic on them! Or someone wasn’t paying attention during final edits. I’ll go with the first one. Makes the anime director sound less stupid.
So anyway Nana invites the girls out to lunch while the guys keep on the job.
Wow that looks good and apparently they spray it with liquid nitrogen to make it cold and crunchy.
So after that we go back to Naoto and Iwaizumi hanging up posters. Boring right…
So other than some scorch marks and a broken locker, there wasn’t any casualities, nothing’s broken, and apparently Iwaizumi’s a freaking psychic because he was able to pull Naoto out of the way just in time.
After that we basically get a break down of what happened: the terrorist made a fake call so to pull Gonou and her team to Yokohama and get rid of the A-Team, leaving the kids to take care of it. So it worked perfect to catch them off guard.
The stationmaster states that terrorists want a 100 million yen for telling them where the bomb is. Wait a second…that’s about 986,729 dollars. It’s kinda low if you look at this way but then again a lot of yen.
Oh my god, that’s a lot of money! Imagine what I could do with that much cash…
I need to try not to think about it.
If they don’t give them the money then they’ll set off a massive explosion. Naoto immediately says they have to do evaculate the customers. One of the assistants say that since this is the Tokyo Station, and not any small little stop, it would cause a massive panic. And we all know what happens when people panic. Theft, death, trampling , and general havoc. My kind of party but it tends to be bad.
So they say that they’re going to give in to the demands but Aoi argues back.
Naoto says that if they can find the bomb before Gonou comes back or the bomb goes off they might not have to give the money away.
Nana explains how they’ll go about searching but if they can’t find the bomb by 2:50 then they’ll give into the demands.
We go to the group checking the lockers and Koumi comments that there are 3000 lockers in the station.
So after checking 368 lockers, Aoi gets an idea.
Then Koumi gets a phone call saying that the dog they turned into the lost and found last episode just started barking and won’t stop. Iwaizumi gets the idea that the bomb must be in the Lost and Found.
Aoi tells Koumi and Iwaizumi to evacuate the area and tell Nana about the bomb.
So it looks like with fifteen minutes of the clock, it looks like Gonou’s going to come back to a small crater where the lost and found was.
Can you say badass?!
Side Note: This is how you get yourself blown up when dealing with a bomb. Any smart bomb maker knows to keep the real wires that do anything out of sight and out of reach. You can’t trust the clock. The timer can speed up, show the wrong countdown time, and whole lot of other things.
Aoi says that if Naoto wants to get out he can run but he stands firm with her.
While cutting the wires, Aoi and Naoto have to line up some wires so she can cut them at the same time. So this ends up happening…
It’s not his hand but it’s just as good right? Side note: Whoever said more than hand full is a waste is deluded. Bigger is better.
So the clock hits near three and Aoi and Naoto are down to the last two wires, one pink and other red.
If that ain’t ship teasing I don’t know…that gives me an idea for another meta post. God I create more work for myself.
Aoi decides to cut the red wire but then this happens.
And the clock starts diving. Aoi dips out to go to do something and Koumi asks if she can do anything and Naoto says to help Iwaizumi.
Naoto has a vision of him driving a train in a void. Looks like he’s going to the big train yard in the sky…
And Aoi comes in and saves the day with the liquid nitrogen.
Side Note: This is actually how it works if you ever see a bomb. The liquid nitrogen freezes the electrons in the bomb and stops the electric from flowing.
So we cut to the platform with the stationmaster and then this happens…
They swarm him like they were playing Ride of the Valkyries in the background.
Such a sexy serious voice.
So after that Aoi explains how she managed to beat the bomb and then she collapses.
If this isn’t fanservice and shipping, I’m clearly blind.
After that we head back to the K-4 room where Naoto’s made Deputy Squad Leader.
Now I barely get it. Aoi did the actual save by freezing the bomb but what Naoto was more important. He made the command decision to take care of the customers and delagated responsibilies well. That’s better in a leader than Aoi’s more hotheaded style.
Indeed you are man. Indeed you are.
And with that, the episode is over. It’s definitely an okay episode but there’s a few flaws to it especially with the posters.
All in all, I’ll give this episode an 6/10. It had some good parts but it wasn’t enough to get a better score.
So that’s the episode so until the next one,
