You don’t want to mess with Cla-ring. Apparently the thugs did just that and they are in for a rather nasty surprise.
From the looks of it, it seems that the girls can’t catch a break. It seems that Takumi is curious about Nene given that she has an unknown device in her. Yep, it’s the thing that allows her to transform using Clarion’s Pandora device. Her transformation is just an illusion and she doesn’t actually change her clothes. All we know about the device is that it allows Nene to use Clarion’s powers. What powers you may ask, it’s still a secret.
Aside from that, it seems that the gang is out to kidnap Clarion and Nene so that they can sell their parts. Well, they got to be the dumbest criminals ever. Sure, Nene got kidnapped early on, but it seems that they couldn’t capture Clarion in time before the network came back up since she was able to put up a fight. Still, it seems that she had some trouble with Fried, who apparently have prosthetic arms that gives him super strength that surpasses her, that is until he touched her ears. Yep, he shouldn’t have done that or he wouldn’t have his hand chopped off.
Aside from that, it’s quite surprising how dumb these thugs are since they believe that Nene and Clarion are robots. They are in for a nasty surprise. In reality, they are full body cyborgs, which is why they can attack without being ordered to. Combine that with Nene’s puppet master ability from her Pandora device, they were defeated by the robots that they stole. Yep, they shouldn’t have bullied Clarion and kidnap Nene. If they didn’t, the police wouldn’t find out about them, thus they wouldn’t end up in prison.
From the looks of it, it seems that things are going good on the island despite some pitfalls. I wouldn’t be surprised if the network interruptions were done by those criminals and that these thugs are from the same group from the 4th episode. Aside from that, it seems that the Colonel got a good deal after receiving the robots Nene recovered to the police. What will he do with them is up to speculation, but it’s probably something to do with his evil plans that he is cooking up. ¶
