The music was fantastic here but what the hell was this?  Typical Igarashi material we’ve got here– entertaining, fun and energetic characters but a flimsy storyline.  I say this only because of how many terms that we’ve been unaware of until now– Planeter Unit.  Did the writers seriously pull this out of nowhere for the sake of making the plot more interesting?  Come on.  This is very weak writing here, M3: Sono Kuroki Hagane is suffering a lot from this style as well.  It’s  a shame because this show was very good in the first thirteen episodes and now we’ve got this stale unexplained plan coming out of thin air here!

The Director Igarashi did great work with Junichi Sato on Sailor Moon, but this was pretty bad. Salty Dog decides to make another attempt at thwarting the Midsummer’s Knights with their Operation Summer– this did absolutely nothing and they should’ve learned from the previous mistakes with Hirosue.  Boring.  I am going to keep following this show as I’ve made it this far, and it’s been entertaining but these last couple of episodes didn’t even touch the level of what we had in the first half. Do have to wonder what will happen with the use of an alternate dream-like universe next episode.  Hopefully this will redeem these past few poorly designed episodes!

OVERALL IMPRESSION: 4/10
