Plunderer (Episode 11) – Up My Sleeve

Plunderer Title

Licht is recovering from the fight with the Helicopter, Althing, Sonohara, and finally Jail. Somehow, Althing has decided to appear and molest Lynn, Sonohara, and Nana, but Hina has no boobs, so it’s not interested in her!

Up My Sleeve

Much to Licht’s delight, Althing is busy molesting all of the girls with boobs. Poor Hina even starts to feel left out an puts a couple of apples up her shirt… Meanwhile, Jail is summoned to see Supreme Commander Bono who is also his adopted father. They talk about the guys in black suits with their handguns and a bunch of other things that no one really cares about. Then, Bono tells Jail that he knows that they thought Althing and that he’s hiding Licht….

Jail returns to the hideout to find Althing still busily groping the girls and threatens to arrest Licht, but Nana slaps some sense into him and then reveals that she is also a Legendary Ace and transports Jail, Lynn, Pele, and Hina to what looks like an old school building in a run-down area of Earth. They then see a young Sonohara and Licht heading into school!

Episode Thoughts

I absolutely hate this series. It’s not funny, it’s not clever, and it’s really badly written with terrible pacing and awful characters. The thing that I hate the most is that it’s such a missed opportunity. It feels like this could be an incredible story if it played it straight and didn’t try too hard. There could have still been a good amount of ecchi content without this forced crap that we’re seeing. This episode is possibly the worst I’ve seen yet and now that we’re heading into a school arc, I have really lost hope that anything good is going to come from it. I can’t believe there are another thirteen episodes left.

  1. Some comments I’ve found that really says how I felt when watching this episode:

    1. “….he deflects the question by… trying to force open her legs and check out her panties…it is a defense mechanism…His constant sexual harassment is to keep people safe…”

    How can sexual harassment be a safe thing to do… 😠

    2. “The girls are clearly uncomfortable when they get molested, and they fall for Licht anyway because they are bad characters in a bad show by a hack writer.”

    Actually, the cabin fever scene is all original, but even though it’s the scriptwriter’s fault, I suspect Minazuki is involved in giving this idea like what he did with ep7.

    3. “On top of all that, we have both Hina and Sonohara apologizing for being assaulted.”

    I know this is fiction, but I want to see sexual assault being used as a serious, digusting issue, not used for comedic timing. And nope; the only one who should apologize is the sexual predator.

    Why I’m remembering this episode is to gather my feelings of anger & disgust be written in my future WN chapter without any of my main characters forgetting about the sexual predator.

    • Number 1 is a troubling comment. Some people really are beyond help.

      It’s just the worst show I’ve watched. The only good points are it’s potential which was completely squandered.

      • The only good thing from this episode is Jail having a serious conversation with his adopted dad, but unfortunately, important info, especially on why Licht still look young despite being 300+ years old (from the source material) is cut off in favour of the creepy cabin fever scene.

        The number 1 comment is from a professional reviewer at ANN. While I get he makes guesses on why Licht was behaving in a despicable (but actually creepy) way from the first 8 episodes, it’s still a stupid way for Licht to make people hate him.

        My anti-heroine is doing the same thing except the only difference is that she says cruel truths in her monotone voice with a straight face. Licht could’ve done that without the “Hyper Sex Maniac” trope being a writing necessity in his personality.
