Plunderer (Episode 5) – Don’t Apologize, Apologize

Plunderer Title

Licht and Jail continue their fight, each appearing to hold back their true power and only revealing a little more as and when necessary. Lynn tries to protect Licht, but that just makes things worse! Am I being punked? Is this series for real?

Don’t Apologize, Apologize

Even less happens this week as Jail and Licht continue their fight. Jail throws an apparently endless supply of iron at Licht who continues to leap into the upper atmosphere before firing himself back down. Jail stops his attack and then shackles him up, but when Licht refuses to talk his creates an iron whip. Lynn jumps in the way and faces the wraith of Jail only for that to annoy Licht who easily breaks free from Jail’s unbreakable prison… They fight some more, destroying the rock around them and sending Lynn falling through the air. Licht manages to save her before tossing her to Jail so that he can make his getaway.

Episode Thoughts

I just don’t know what is going on anymore. Well, that’s not strictly true. Nothing is going on, everyone is hiding their true potential behind a slew of fake maximum levels, and the story is doing nothing. Jail needs to get his glasses adjusted as he spent the entire episode readjusting them and that was the most exciting thing about it. The action was boring, Licht is boring. I just can’t get into this series at all. There’s also still no ecchi content, so even that can’t save it. Next week promises a new girl, but I’m not sure an army of girls could save this series. Nineteen is my count… that’s how many more episodes I need to watch…

This is basically what happened!

  1. Worst thing is that I can’t tell if this episode is worse than the premiere episode. Sure there’s no sexual assault (a.k.a. opening legs), but the over-padding dialogue was killing me.

    This series is treating us viewers like we’re newborn babies as if we had no idea Licht is an Ace when actually, it was revealed in ep2 via Nana’s random exposition dump.

    Dumb fact: This series was airing at 1am at Japan time so if there are young Japanese kids watching at that time, then I shouldn’t be surprised at what the scriptwriter/director was doing for these kids.

    • Yeah, they have shown zero respect for the viewers in their attempt to spoon feed us everything.

      It says something that by 5 episodes it’s completely lost me. I had checked out sooner but it just kept getting worse. For an ecchi action series it’s incredible that it didn’t get either aspect right.

      • I’m unenthusiastic about ecchi genre, but one thing I do know is that groping/sexual harassment jokes shouldn’t be part of ecchi/fanservice, especially when it’s done by the main protagonist in making humor out of it. I exclaim “That’s disgusting!” whenever I see any G/SH scenes. 🤢

        I was anticipating Soldier Lynn to be a well-written female character, but instead I get reminders of her swooning over a creepy pervert just because he helped her and his words to Jail. Now that’s cringy & poorly-written. I feel bad her whole identity is only defined as “The Girl with Unrequited Love” and nothing more than that in the next episodes.

        In fact, this is the start of the female lead characters becoming harem material and nothing more than that. Heard Minazuki thrown away the harem writing while halfway into his series, but that just made Plunderer’s storytelling become a blunder.

        Yeah, should’ve gone with a Heaven’s Lost Property remake instead of this series, Kadokawa…😑
