L.Gaim Ep. 51: My Love


It starts raining over Sveto as asteroids keep coming down over the city. Mian wonders if she hasn’t been able to contact Olibee because Giwaza’s killed her. Gavlet heads to the Sarge Opus and tells Giwaza that Full intends to assassinate him, so Giwaza orders Anton to launch an attack on Full. Gavlet wants to launch, but Giwaza says no since he’s been wounded. Giwaza is told that Olibee is acting strangely, as Olibee has trouble sleeping and calls out for Giwaza. She keeps saying that she is Poseidal, and Gavlet watches from outside her cell. On the Turner, Kyao complains that they can’t find Full due to all the asteroids, but Daba thinks that she’s already in Sveto. He wants to save Olibee before attacking Sveto, thinking that if the bio-sensor back up system there is destroyed, it could harm her. Leccee agrees since the destruction of the system will stop everyone from being controlled by Poseidal. Full heads to Sveto on another Whale. She looks at a picture of her and Poseidal from 60 years ago and thinks playing with people’s hearts is wrong. She’s then informed that Giwaza’s forces are approaching. On the Turner they note that since Giwaza’s forces have split in two, now is the perfect time to save Olibee. Semuj is left in charge of Star Dust as Daba and the others fly toward the Sarge Opus. Full is happy to see that Daba and the others will be attacking Giwaza. Angry at the rebels for helping Full, Giwaza orders his forces to attack them all. Some of Poseidal’s soldiers arrive to help out in attacking Giwaza, telling Daba that he’ll be the next to go after Giwaza is taken out. In Sveto, Mian works on adjusting the bio-sensor backup system. Amandara is told that the bio-sensor system has been tampered with. He is angry since he fears this will bring about an end to his ability to control Pentagona. Hashamoja tells Gavlet that Daba is heading to the Sarge Opus in order to save Olibee. A hologram of Olibee appears in front of everyone, and Rockley realizes it’s due to the bio-sensor shorting out. The Mk-II flies right through the hologram.

Amandara leaves his Whale and heads to Sveto with his butler Eiman. He thinks Mian has been Poseidal too long. Lily attacks Daba with her G.Roon. Leccee arrives in the Novel D.Sserd to help out, allowing Daba to head back toward the Sarge Opus. Full gets into her Gayrahm and tells her assistant Asa that she’s going to Sveto. She doesn’t think she or Mian will be freed even by death. Daba blasts a hole in the Sarge Opus and heads in on the Viewy, leaving the L.Gaim Mk-II in Lilith’s hands. On the bridge, Giwaza is informed that Daba has gotten aboard the ship. Gavlet rushes his way through Poseidal’s forces and makes his way to the Sarge Opus. Daba takes a soldier hostage on the ship and demands to be brought to Olibee. The soldier claims he doesn’t know so Daba knocks him out. Daba makes his way to the bridge and knocks out the soldiers accompanying Giwaza. He pulls out a beam saber and demands to know where Olibee is. Giwaza pulls out his own beam saber and the two duel. Gavlet heads onto the ship, vowing he’ll be the one to save Olibee. Daba knocks away Giwaza’s saber, but when Anton carries in Olibee, it distracts Daba long enough for Giwaza to subdue him. Gavlet comes in and knocks away Anton, enabling the two of them to escape with Olibee. Gavlet leaves her with Daba and says they’re even. Daba heads back towards the Turner on the Viewy with Olibee. He lands in the Novel D.Sserd’s hands and thanks Leccee for her help. Lily battles Amu’s L.Gaim and is told to retreat. Amu refuses to let her go and grabs onto the G.Roon. She blasts the G.Roon repeatedly until it blows up, killing Lily. Everyone returns to the Turner and is happy to see Olibee back, but she proclaims herself Poseidal and passes out.


Gavlet and Daba finally succeed in saving Olibee from Giwaza after so many episodes of trying. In a rather shocking turn of events, though, Gavlet seemed perfectly willing to leave her in Daba’s hands. Even though Poseidal/Mian is having trouble contacting Olibee, she clearly has her brainwashed since Olibee keeps talking like she is Poseidal. It seems like Mian is tampering with the bio-sensor system somehow (probably due to the Olibee situation), concerning Amandara tremendously. The bio-sensor/bio-relation system must be integral to his plans. Lily becomes the latest character to die and it couldn’t have come soon enough for me. She essentially served little purpose other than the token villain in the show’s battles as of late. Glad to see Amu was able to take her out.
