Now that the Harekaze has to make some repairs after receiving damage from the last mission to save the Graf Spee, it’s time to take a short break.
Not much happened this time aside from Maron, our lovable chief engineer coming up with the idea of the Equator festival. The festival is meant to pray to God for safe passage at sea. The festival of course consists of skits, which each of the teams do in the second half along with other fun activities. It seems that everyone was enjoying themselves, although Mashiro always get the short end of the stick when Rin slashed Mashiro and she pretended that she is dying in Kouko’s arms in a drama. Even so, it’s odd to see some hints of a pairing when Kouko asks Mashiro to do a drama with her. Then again, Mashiro might be interested in our captain, Akeno, especially after what happened a few episodes ago.
Aside from that, it seems that Maron got upset by the girls goofing off instead of preparing for the festival, more so when they pretended that they cared. In short, she hid out in the engine room and Kuro came to cheer her up by showing the surprise that Hime was working on. Yep, it was a palanquin and the girls were into it, especially Akeno to brighten the sprits. Either way, it seems that Maron is happy now that Kuro came. It seems that she will have her back if things don’t work out for Mashiro. Either way, it’s quite obvious that Maron has a crush on Kuro.
Aside from the festivities, it seems that the Blue Mermaids are getting closer to completely eradicating the virus. It seems that they do not won’t to get outdone by the students of the Harekaze as they managed to save students on two different ships. Either way, there are only five ships left, including the Musashi. Hopefully things will get exciting when the Harekaze with some help confronts them once again. ¶
