First time in ages for this show that I considered pulling a 9. In the end I settled for 8, but that was an excellent ep. Besides, it's difficult not to like Septieme...

And the best part of all: WE'RE BACK AT THE MAIN ARC! Episode 14 obviously kicks off the main storyline, and I've got a hunch that this one will be pursued for a long while without side distractions.

Nice!

Yep, I hugely enjoyed this ep also. Saitou Chiwa as Septieme-hime was awesome, I hope she returns later in the series. Nurse Rosette's back too, with a re-enforced bottle this time.

Next week though looks back on track with the Flammenwerfers from the OP.

Eighth sign of the Apocalypse: Furudanuki makes a prediction (from back in episode #5 no less) that actually comes true. The world will be ending shortly. Please mute your cell phones. Have a nice day.

There's an official favourite character poll on the website, and with only one appearance Septieme-hime is third, behind Alice in second and Orland, way ahead in first. Machs and Mercury-go tie at fourth place

Rough Yet Delicious

This was an enjoyable episode for not saying that it was a waste. Quite on the contrary it was productive on the scene that we see another side of politics dealt in that fictional historical period.

Loderia's dissent is basically derived from skirmishes between members of its own royalty. The kingdom is severely fractured in regards to injunctions of its own political base, because all heirs competitively vie for the throne disregarding the value of their blood relations.
In summary, history has taught the Loderian to pick up as a habit to use their neighbors weaknesses in respect to terms of one's own character, social skills, professional proficciency, the political context, and the monarchy to one own advantage.

I cannot stop feeling sorry a great bit for Septiéme, because she has experienced a fearful and unstable childhood and has grown to get use to intimidate others by means of psychological extortion, blackmail, or emotional breakdown, due since she's still a child, in order for her survival.

Ok. Casting aside the explanation, Septiéme makes the episode itself a solid worth, and Machs becoming the babysitter commoner to please her demands cannot make it to fail either.

As I have given serious thoughts, after learning that Chiwa Saito was the seiyuu who provided Septiéme's voice, IMO she's just as spunky and selfishly unrestrained just like Hazuki from Tsukuyomi ~Moon Phase~.
Septiéme even makes use of her royal status to boast a position of power to intimidate the poor pedestrians crossing her paths.

On the other hand, I cannot quite explain it properly, but she also reminded me of Rosetta from Kaleido Star.

In the physical aspects, Septiéme is quite comparable mainly to C.C. and likely Shirley from Code GEASS, and on a minor comparison to Hazuki, who I alreay mentioned before. Lastly, another minor comparison to Teletha Testarrosa from Full Metal Panic: The Second Raid! in reference to the same hair color.

There were GOLDEN moments in the episode:

1. Septiéme french kissing Machs. Oreld proved my suspicions for me.
2. Stekkin's frenetic face at the steering wheel.
3. Nurse fourth... or is it the fifth? failed attempt to extract another sample from Oland.

One of other thing that I liked the episode was because how Septiéme is introduced at the very beginning, which makes the audience believe initially that she's an antagonist or villain but was later proven she's not.

BTW, at the very end of the previous episode Leonil was having a toast with another man.

That was above average for a PS filler ep, but I still didn't think it was great, mostly because it was fairly predictable up until near the end. I also couldn't get past how backward the customs of Septiéme's country were. It did seem a bit much that sibling rivalries were encouraged, to the point that family members murder each other for the sake of ambition, etc, etc. I didn't find it totally realistic, which is something that is fairly important in establishing universes like the setting of PS, IMO.

Other than that, this ep got a lot of yawns from me until the kiss at the end. More than half way through and only now beginning to touch on the main plot means that this show has gone far too slow.

Man... the Pumpkin Scissors forums look so lonely. Do so many people really dislike it that much? I find myself enjoying all the episodes so far.

I highly enjoyed this episode, although it felt a little bit rushed.

Yeah in one or two shots she does look like Gin. That one of her with her hair over her eyes especially. Personalities are completely polar though I'm not a huge RM fan, liked the first series though. I'll check out the OAV when it get subbed properly.Uh-oh off topic...

Hopefully as we move back into the main story next week things will pick up. I don't think those who have been watching PS since ep 1 have abandoned it, they just wish it would get on with the main story rather than these stand alone character driven episodes.

A quick question to the manga readers. Does Lt. Webner have a thing or two for Machs? She appeared to be acting all jealous or stuff at the end of the episode.

Cheers.

Probably because the previous episodes were so boring that nobody even bother to post. To others, it might just be a waste of time. Few of my friends already quited PS but I'm still clinging to it hoping for something nice at the end. :3

Alright, this filler wasn't that bad after all mainly because I just love lolis with white hair. I must admit Septiéme is cute BUT deadly. She kinda reminds me of Ilya from FSN.
Overall, and enjoyable episode.

Well I was going to give up on the show one point aswell...I think it was the one with the cabin in the snowy mountains or some such. But after this episode im glad I stuck it out.

Although saying its the best filler episode yet probably isnt a great achievement to most it was still one of the most enjoyable episode of PS for me yet. The princess was cute...the kiss was unexpected...and the bottle returned.

Throw in alittle crazy driving and a few scenes to prove that machs isnt just a bookworm and im more then satisfied.

Yeah, I want to know too, she seem to display the classic, "I'm-pretending-to-tease-you-by-stranglation-because-really-im-jealous-and-i-want-to-punish-you-HARD" kinda fixed smile on her face.

Ah, i love those types of females, especially since that red hair lass, is the "laid-back/cool" type.
plus when she was leaning on Mach, you can really see she has some fine pair of puppies.....
