I’m about ready to stop doing episodic reviews for this show.
(Spoilers in this review)
Every episode just seems formulaic and The Lily Garden simply isn’t having fun writing about this series. Even though next week’s episode seems to be introducing “the final boss” FA Girl, I am not interested in writing about this show.
I won’t be dropping this series and will continue watching Frame Arms Girl every week so I can do a series review at the end of Spring 2017, but I will not be writing about it.
At any rate, the first half of the episode is about Ao trying to talk the FA Girls into going to a fireworks festival. Jinrai declares that Ao should not be wearing undergarments under her kimino and slashes her panties. The Materia Sisters and Baselard join in by nailing down and applying glue to her clothing drawers so Ao is unable to grab another pair of panties. In the end, Ao receives permission from her building manager to go up on the rooftop where she observes the fireworks alongside with the FA Girls.
The second half of the episode has Ao freaking out over finishing her summer homework at the last minute over at Bukiko’s house. But it turns out she forgot her noteook at school so she demands that the FA Girls march over there and bring it to her. The three pranksters (the Materia Sisters and Baselard) pretend to stay at home but in actuality start messing with the others using wires and inanimate objects. However, a pair of haunted nippers (the runback!) start chasing Gourai, Jinrai, Stylet, and the Architect until it manages to clip Gourai…which leaves Gourai feeling more flexible. Seems like Ao messed up again and forgot to clip off something which left Gourai feeling clunky. In the end, the four FA Girls find Ao’s notebook and take the rusty clippers along with them. Meanwile the pranksters are left at school.
Riveting. Absolutetly engaging.
I’m kind of over this show at this point. Expect me to specify that I’m not doing any more episodic reviews for Frame Arms Girl in the upcoming Midseason Musings post. But do look forward to the series review, I guess.
