PPS: Lotus forgot this: special thanks to Modest Mussorgsky, whose “The Great Gate of Kiev” from “Pictures of an Exibition” was used as a plot device and as a leitmotiv for Rin. I liked this music since I was a kid. And you can listen to it (Maurice Ravel’s orchestration) here:
Wah! What do we have here? My, my, isn’t this a typical penultimate episode where nothing happens and leaves you with a “What’s wrong with you?! Gimme my last episode and MOAR RIIIINNNN (or Tamayo in my case ) !!!1!one!!ONE!!1!!!!!!!!”?! I guess it is, but you’ll have to see for yourself!
You know that something is wrong when you have to rely on a French to make the news post. So what could possibly be wrong? I guess you will have to watch the episode to uncover the whole truth. But I can already say that many of you will be shocked, you might even cry a little, and you will probably be outraged.
This is something that happens several times in real life, usually everyday for the majority of us, but in anime whatever the number of times I watch it, it’s always disturbing. So be warned and download at your own risk. This is so horrible that I might have lost my mind midways, c’est une vérité que je refuse d’accepter.
Il n’y a qu’une seule explication possible, c’est un complot fomenté par les producteurs afin de nous faire acheter un oreiller à l’effigie de Rin dans sa merveilleuse robe blanche. Oui, vous ne rêvez pas, Rin a bien changé de vêtements, et ce n’est pas une réussite. Son accoutrement doit surement venir tout droit de la Perfide Albion. And like desolo would say : Sacre bleu!
The storm continues to brew while the situation continues to stay quiet on the surface. But we all know it—a perfect storm is approaching. If it’s approaching slowly, the actual storm will be quite big. We don’t get to see much of RideBack action again, but we shouldn’t lose our hope.
After Rin was abducted from the transport car which should transport her to a GGP prison, she now is held captive by a resistance group led by the same mysterious guy who helped her breaking through the GGP lines in episode 04:
Now… as handsome as he might be – is he a friend or a foe? And who exactly is Okakura – and what business does he have with those resistance folks? Watch and find out!
Following fast on the heels of episode 6, Rin and her brother Kenji find themselves at the mercy of the police. Or is it the GGP? The boundaries between the two are diminishing fast and it’s all becoming one big political carnival that the Ogata family are finding themselves caught in the crossfire of, with only tutus and maracas. Lots of newsreading action in this ep too (which is why we’re all watching, right?), so what are you waiting for? Download it already!
P.S. no spanking in this episode either, I’m afraid. Sorry desolo~
Edit: There now is a V2 for the 480p version. I messed up the ending karaoke and the font scaling. So blame me if you need to.
Whatever Desolo was watching – it surely wasn’t Rideback’s episode 06. We don’t see Tamayo riding anything this week. So I guess Deso was just daydreaming again…
Anyway – what’s more important is that Rin now really gets in trouble. We know she was caught on camera when she did her stunt breaking through the GGP line. Plus her naive little brother is instrumentalized in a secret field test for the GGP’s new white RideBacks. Will this end up happily?
