One more post weeee! Thought my eyes were going to melt after spending so much time in front of the computer. I should do that thing called exercise...go outside...move. You know, all those things. It would be easier to do the right thing if it wasn't boring. XD I mean how can I watch TV outside? Craziness. Episode Summary: Gunzou and crew have arrived at the Port of Yokosuka. This is most of theirs home town although one of the crew seems impressed. Things have changed a lot since they last were here. There are huge walls that protect the bay and a super eleborate process into docking inside the underground harbor. All the navy soldiers are on super guard as they point guns at the crew as everything is checked. Nothing is said about the gravity gun they have on board so Gunzou assumes that his connection Vice President So and So is on their side. Still the inspection is lengthy and no one goes out of their way to make them feel wanted. More like get your supplies and be on your way. Gunzou orders the crew to do certain things, from making sure things are supplied right to making sure that the weapons are looked after. Gunzou takes Iona out as everyone else is guarded by the navy who is like hmmm we have to do our jobs so don't judge us. As the crew works Gunzou takes Iona on a side trip through his old town. Iona notes that there are more shops and people since they were last here. Gunzou thinks that since the wall has been built some people must have come back to the bay. Iona thinks that is illogical as being near any water source is dangerous, no matter how amazing the wall is. Gunzou says that some people just want to be near the sea, no matter how illogical it might be. Gunzou and Iona run into a rich girl running away from her maids. She is shortly taken away by said maids and Iona scans the girl, stating she lives alone. Gunzou thinks that it is odd that Iona has taken an interest in someone other than the crew and Iona looks like she wants to say more....The illogical train continues as Gunzou stops by a graveyard to pay respects to those lost in the Fog War, probably his dad. Iona doesn't really see the point of this place as dead people are dead and it's not like they died at this spot. More illogical behavior. But as Gunzou sees people crying over a grave he realizes this is a spot for the living, not the dead. And being illogical is a sign that people have evolved. Back at the docks final preparations and supplies are being loaded on the 401 when the crew looks up...and the army has arrived and taken the navy and them captive. They set to work capturing Iona and Gunzou. Iona wants to fight but Gunzou asks her to stay her ground. They are invited to a dinner party at some fancy place. As they wait Kita, some super important past member of the Navy and current super important politician, joins them. Everyone is hmmmm at this situation.
Elsewhere Kongou and her tea set are drinking along with another Fog Ship. As they drink their tea they talk about the situation that Takao has found herself in and how Kongou has sent two submarines to investigate her. When the other Fog Ship questions why Kongou is doing something like tactics she explains that they have to adapt. That Fog Ships were used to following orders and doing things directly. That it was easy to take on humans because they lacked the superior technology. But if humans got a Fog Ship like oh I don't know Iona....the tide would turn. Thus the avatars are able to learn and grow from their experiences and Kongou is able think of tactics. Meanwhile Takao has gone to shore and bought a magazine about being a captain of a ship. She has a love moment imagining that Gunzou is...riding her. The two spy submarines 400 and 402 appear and question Takao why she has left the fleet. She tries to explain she wants to be the best weapon possible and for that she will need a captain. The two submarines think there is something more but Takao marches off, saying she will meet up with Gunzou at this next location. The two submarines let Takao leave as they sense Fog is changing and they will need to study Takao to make it through this. Back at the dinner the crew is watching as Kita takes his seat and mainly talks to Gunzou. Basically Kita just wants Iona back in military hands. Kita says a lot of crap and it contradictions himself in the conversation. He thinks the ship is too dangerous in the hands of kids, that it needs to be in trained military soldiers hands. That they have just been lucky all this time and this ship could turn the tide for the human race. Then he switches gears, saying that Iona and her little human body can't be trusted. She is still the enemy, still can't be fully controlled. That she might turn on the human race and she needs to be in military hands if that happens. Gunzou listens to this all and is like....um no we will not be leaving Iona with you, especially if you call her a monster. A ton of men gather around to shoot everyone full of lead when an explosion happens at the wall. Two Fog Ships have started to attack. Gunzou orders to Iona to bring the ship around. Iona over rides all the systems and poof the ship arrives. Iona points her lazer beams at the military men as the crew safely boards the system. Kita says that Gunzou is going down a dangerous road, he might die because of this ship. Gunzou doesn't know the future but this is what he feels is right. Iona says that she exist as a weapon and to keep Gunzou alive. She has no idea what Fog wants and she is on Gunzou's side only. Everyone boards the ship and off they go. Iona identifies both ships and the crew is like two at once? That doesn't stop Gunzou from declaring it battle time. THE END!
Before Gunzou got too far gone in the mush he and the rest of the crew were captured. The army and navy were like....you know what. We don't have enough problems in life. We really should work hard to make life as miserable as possible. Working together is for chumps. So the army took hold of the navy's operation and Gunzou and company were cordially invited to be kidnapped. How amazing.
Elsewhere Fog is having some problems. Off camera Takao has left the fleet. Like poof see ya bitches. Kongou seems to be in charge of all the Fog vassals we have seen so far. We know some other force is using these avatars and ships as weapons so she really isn't super in charge. Still she seems to be in charge. And addicted to tea. She and the other ships have been on this planet long enough to start learning. A bit faster than Iona which is odd since she has a human crew. But Kongou sees how Iona's maneuverings and fighting has improved. I am glad this was brought up as Kongou also talked about how the ships are developing personalities now. They have human avatars to guide the ships and as a result they have turned almost into people. So that makes me happy, that this is attempting to be explained. Also I like that Kongou is going to investigate what is wrong with Takao rather than blow her out of the water. That signifies growth. More learning!!
