As we approach the end of this series, I feel like some major storm is brewing up in the plot. I was just watching a commercial for the Sora no Woto finale and it looked somewhat epic. Yes, epic. That’s more to say than K-ON and STRIKE Witches, which brings me to my next point… would Sora no Woto ever be considered on the same level as… wait, that’s a good post idea for some other time. Heh heh.
Whilst on patrol in the snow, Kanata and Kureha stumble upon an unconscious Roman soldier. Noël seems to recognize her and asks to look over her. She wakes up the next day and introduces herself as Aisha Aldola, though she is unable to speak Helvetian. Kanata and Noël spend some time with her, and Kanata is surprised she knows how to play Amazing Grace.
Later, Naomi and Yumina arrive, informing them that Helvetian armies are heading towards the fortress. Yumina acts as a translator for Aisha, who says that she wants to see the Angel Fossil (the one Kanata saw underwater in the first episode), the remains of the “Angel of the Apocalypse” that brought upon judgment to the world of the distant past. Just then Colonel Hopkins, the infamous “Demon of Vingt,” starts to arrive at the fortress, and Noel becomes particularly scared.
Filicia decides to hide Noël and Aisha from Hopkins’ platoon, who takes over the fortress. However, their position is giving away when Aisha recognizes Noël as the The Witch of Helvetia, the Invisible Reaper, causing her to scream at the bad memories. At the same time, the fortress gets a call that a massive Roman army has been spotted advancing in No Man’s Land towards the border of Helvetia at Seize.
My thoughts can be summarized in one nice sentence, and then one outburst. First of all, great episode and great twist of plot. Secondly, CAN YA’AALLLLLLLLLLL WAIT FOR TEH NEXT EPISODE!?!?!?!?!!???!? (Note: the spelling error was on purpose).
And sorry guys, dunno what happened to the pictures… theyz started to go crazy.
