Almost there, but the adventure haven’t started just yet!
As revealed in the last episode, Princess Serenity has snuck on board and asks Marika to help her with a certain mission. When I was looking back, I didn’t realize that Princess Serenity has so many similarities to the main heroine of a certain series. Even so, things eventually got better after she received her belongings and a chip that contained information about the ghost ship from the Grand Chamberlain. While it’s subtle, it seems that they have finally accepted her mission and studying abroad, which is good news for the mission.
Thankfully, Chiaki makes a return in this episode after her short-lived absence. As expected, Marika gave her a hug, which looked rather cute and filled with denial. To make it even better, the whole club calls her “Chiaki-chan” when they came into the clubroom and hilarity ensues. Also, Gruier reveals that she wants to fake her attendance for obvious reasons and looking for the Yacht club to help her. Of course, this led to her joining the club and getting dragged into simulation practice. I guess the girls will have a field day with her around.
Aside from that, it seems that we are now set for a pirate adventure next episode since the crew knows all the basic information about the ghost ship. It seems that Gruier wants to find a ship that carried many people of her own kind in suspension to another planet. The reason behind it all is still a mystery, but I can’t help to think that she might take some names from there and commit voter fraud. Even so, it looks like Marika will have some kind of rivalry as Chiaki’s father is also seeking for the same ship. Only time can tell and hopefully, they won’t get into any real danger.
