Plunderer (Episode 6) – Hunch

Plunderer Title

Licht has a new mask and is wandering about on his own until Hina and Nana manage to track him down. Soon after they meet Pelmo who is desperately trying to create a flying machine even if it kills her!

Hunch

Amazingly, Jail and Lynn haven’t caught up with Licht, but somehow Hina and Nana made it to the village on the rock, got some information, and managed to find Licht wandering around with a bird mask on. The usual hilarities followed… Licht is hungry wants food, Nina hits Licht and makes him earn it, Hina, however, has prepared Licht a lunch but they are interrupted. A makeshift flying machine races over their heads and hurtled toward a cliff. Licht is able to save the driver just in time. Pelmo is quite surprised to by flying although Licht tries to tell her that he’s just good a jumping.

They go back to her workshop where she reveals that she is trying to make a flying machine. Licht warns her that it is punishable by death and, of course, Hina doesn’t know that. Where has Hina been all this time? Anyhow, Licht shows her how to perfect the flying machine. Then, while Pelmo makes the finished adjustments, Licht tries to force open Hina’s legs so he can see her panties… Pelmo comes back in the nick of time with her flying machine, but the military has shown up forcing Licht to destroy the machine or everyone would be in trouble.

Once the military has left, Pelmo reveals that her count was tied to her attempts at achieving her dream and has now reached zero. The hands appear from the ground and grab her, ready to take her to the abyss. Hina tries to stop them, but the hands retaliate. Licht blocks an attack but receives an unusual shock and has a flashback to a warzone with machine guns and boats. He then discovers that he has a new count in his eye!

Episode Thoughts

More happened in this episode, but it was still mostly silly. We only just met Pelmo and all of a sudden we’re supposed to be upset that she’s been taken to the abyss, especially when she doesn’t seem that bothered. It was fairly amusing to see Licht destroy her flying machine and then realise that he cost her life. I say amusing because I really don’t like Licht. I can’t stand the way that he’s nice one second and then trying to pull Hina’s legs apart the next. It’s all a bit rapey for me and I’m not finding it at all entertaining. So, the big shock is that this may in fact be an Isekai which would make sense since there has been an abundance of bad Isekai lately. My count is down to 18!

  1. I know I shouldn’t connect grim real news that’s not related to anime, but today I’ve just found out that young women, especially those being teenagers, gets punished just because they speak up about being threatened to be groped/violated.

    If you search #StandForAin or #MakeSchoolASaferPlace, then her situation is similar to Hina’s except the fact Ain is what should female characters be written like: Never fall for your sexual harasser/groper even if he’s the main hero of the series.

    Today’s news just reminded me of this godawful episode & I feel ashamed that I kept watching it just because I wanna know exactly why flying is forbidden. Then again, I’m still watching Combatants Dispatched!, but the female characters clearly punch back their groper.

    I guess why I’m disappointed with Hina being written as this kind of damsel in distress is because she never ever try to punch/slap Licht back whenever he takes her legs apart; and it’s all because he saved her from another creepy groper before. It feels like she indirectly telling us that “If a groper saved you before, it’s okay to let them grope you as reward for them.” 🤦‍♀️

    Seriously why did I watch this series for again? Besides I did it for Jail…

    • Correction: #StandWithAin

    • Yeah, it’s all a bit crazy. Too often those abused are treated terribly when they do come forward. It’s no surprise so many remain silent.

      I haven’t noticed any groping in Combatants will be Dispatched yet. He seems to be all talk which is nice. Even when it turns against him, he backs away because he never had any intention of doing anything too evil.

      I still can’t believe I watched and reviewed this entire series…

      • While I appreciate Pelmo being a determined woman to fly and could care less about the corrupt government’s death penalty law, her saying “Am I interrupting something?” while she smiled at Hina & Licht showing (misrepresented) embarrassing reminds me of many hypocrite-bystander who have sick beliefs that sexual harassment/groping is “natural” to be a part of a couple’s argument.

        It’s not, and hopefully my writing of future chapters featuring a villain who’s a sexual predator would help me erase my remembering this “disgusting sexual predator” episode. And yes, my main heroine will “show and tell” readers that sexual predatory stuff is neither funny nor fun to begin with.

        • I felt like Pelmo was giving Hina a chance to say that it wasn’t all right, but she didn’t and that depraved image remains. I was already checked out on this series but that remains one of the most baffling moments in the show.
