Summary

 

Paris continues to burn after the events of the previous episode. Aboard the recently arriving Guran Galan, Ceila realizes their plans have gone array and she wonders if Shou has gone hyper like Jerryl did. Charlie comes to see her and tells her the Queen of England will meet with her. The Zelana heads away from the remains of Paris. Shou is upset over what happened. Nie spots an approaching Aura Battler on the radar. The unit, led by Musiy and Jabba, an old friend of Shot's, approaches. Shou, Keen and Marvel head out to defend the Zelana. Shou takes on Jabba, Marvel takes on Musiy and Keen defends the Zelana. Shou and Jabba each damage the other's Aura Battlers and Jabba retreats. While fighting Musiy, Marvel has a vision of Shou and Chum telling her not to fight with so much hatred. Sensing the Guran Galan nearby, Musiy has everyone retreat back to the Spriggan. The Zelana heads back to the Guran Galan. Musiy's unit returns to the Spriggan. Jabba is initially angry at Shot for having him retreat. Shot tells Jabba he plans to topple not just Bishot and Drake, but to have control of America as well. He talks of his childhood with Jabba, when the two of them were forced by their families into hiding in Australia and had to do intense labor. Shot is enraged at the America which forced his family out and for that reason will let Drake and Bishot take over the country for him. Ceila meets with the Queen of England, who doesn't believe in Byston Well but decides to do what she can to help.

 

Nie is informed of a joint attack on the Gea Gring at a moment "when multiple suns rise." Elle receives the same message aboard the Graon. Aboard the Gea Gring, Bishot is upset Shot hasn't responded to his message. Europe's military prepares to take revenge for Paris and get ready to launch missiles at the Gea Gring. Jabba takes off on his own on a Wryneck and Wing Calibur. the military begins their assault on the Gea Gring. The Gea Gring shakes from the impact of the explosion. Bishot hopes the barrier will hold. Those aboard the Zelana realize the explosions is what was meant by "multiple suns." With the initial attack launched, the Guran Galan stages its main attack toward the Gea Gring. With the distraction of the explosion, the Guran Galan is able to get in close to the Gea Gring and attack it at close range. The Graon soon joins in on the attack. All the Battleships send out their Aura Battlers and a massive battle ensues. Jabba soon arrives and flies towards the battlefield. He jumps on top of the Graon and starts slicing through the bridge, but Shou arrives and leads him away from the Graon. Jabba knocks the Billbine away, but Shou quickly engages in battle with him once again. Shou is shocked at how strong his enemy is. Jabba makes his way to the Guran Galan's bridge and fires at it. The Guran Galan starts falling but the Graon arrives and holds it up. Shou attacks Jabba again and destroys the Wryneck, killing him. Nie informs Shou that the bridge of the Guran Galan was damaged. El Fino and Bel Al cry over a severely injured Ceila. Shot calls Jabba stupid for getting himself killed. With Zet finishing up the Bubuly aboard the Gea Gring however, he is confident his plans will soon come to fruition.

 

Commentary

 

This episode features another large battle between the Aura Battleships and has Shot and Musiy returning to the scene. We're given more info on Shot's past in this episode, it is revealed that his family was forced to leave America when he was young and he had to do hard labor in Australia. He hopes to get his revenge on America and take advantage of both Drake and Bishot to do so. An old friend of Shot's Jabba appears in this episode and shows immense strength, almost killing Ceila. I question why out of nowhere a pilot with no experience whatsoever would show up and be so strong, even if he is an old colleague of Shot's. And what happened to the Black Knight/Bern? You would think that he'd take part in this battle but he was nowhere to be seen. The battles are escalating to epic proportions and it is taking its toll on Upper Earth. Ceila convinces Europe to help them, but with their attacks being able to do so little damage to the enemy I wonder how long they'll be able to participate.
