Can Licht defeat the Sergeant and return Hina’s numbers to her? You better believe it, but what happens next may come as a bit of a surprise. Who, if anyone, can Hina trust?
I Hate You!
Centuries ago the Waste War engulfed the world. It seemed like no one was going to win and the war would go on forever. But then, the Legendary Aces arrived with power and speed far beyond any mere mortal and ended the war in the blink of an eye. Soon after they disappeared, leaving humanity to pick itself up and find a better way to survive.
Back to things in hand, Licht makes the Sergeant with that he’d never picked a fight with Hina, showing off his incredible speed and strength. He moves so fast they can’t even see him and he can make shockwaves with every step. With the fight over, the Abyss takes the Sergeant’s numbers and gives them to Hina. Then, bizarrely, Licht takes the Ballot Orb and runs off, saying he’ll be able to sell it for lots of money.
Hina can’t believe what she’s seeing and leaves to find Nana and tell her what happened. Licht did, however, leave Hina with a small version of his big doll he had been carrying his sword inside. Nana realised what Licht had done and told Hina to keep hold of the doll, which contained her Ballot. Nana then told Hina that the Ballot is illegal and Licht probably took the fall so she wouldn’t be hunted.
So, this series really isn’t getting any better. There were some absurd exposition moments, most notably from Nana talking to some random at her restaurant about Licht being a Legendary Ace, despite the military obviously looking for them. The storytelling is particularly bad in this series, especially how little Hina knows about the world she’s been walking around in for the last five years. It’s done to give us the chance to hear the explanations of things with Hina, but it still seems absurd. The action was all right in this episode and Licht’s power levels are awesome. There really wasn’t much in the way of ecchi content either. Only twenty-two episodes to go… I hope this gets better!
Licht to the Rescue!
