“FLAG 3.0 Drive My Car”
“FLAG 3.5 I Don’t Want To Spoil The Party”
Mimi: Continuing on with Mio’s arc, Keima witnesses a fight between Mio and her chauffeur. He’s fed up with her pretending to be rich, and he’s quite upset that she spent her allowance on all of those sandwiches. So he storms out of the apartment to leave for good, and that’s when Mio discovers Keima sneaking around. Event flag! Now only they share this wonderful secret of her real lifestyle. Since she doesn’t have a chauffeur anymore, Keima volunteers to take the job. At first he arrives to pick her up with a normal bicycle, then Elcea magically changes it to a carriage. He takes Mio to school everyday, having to pedal hard and work up a sweat. Elcea doesn’t make it any easier on him because she keeps changing the carriage–the final one being a fricken’ train. At any rate, Keima successfully makes Mio dependent on him, and she laughs for the first time (of course she caught herself and started acting mean again).
Later on, Keima pops by her apartment and discovers an invitation laying on the ground for the 63rd “Evening of Flowers” event. Basically, it’s a party for rich folks. So he arranges Mio with a dress and transports her to the party. Well, more specifically, the backyard. She threatens to leave him and go indoors to the party when Elcea shows up in a maid outfit to serve drinks. Keima and Elcea bicker for a little bit, causing Mio to get jealous, so she pulls him into a dance. They’re eventually interrupted by a few rich dudes who pop by to make fun of Mio. Chance! Keima tells Mio that she should stop clinging to this lifestyle just for her father, and that he would like to have a special place in her heart. This all ends in a lovey dovey kiss, and Elcea captures the second loose soul. Gosh Keima, is there a girl that you can’t handle?
Definitely one of the best episodes yet. I really like how Elcea uses her magic to assist Keima; she keeps getting more and more creative. So what’s the next girl going to be like? We’ll just have to wait and see.. =) Alex should take over the TWGOK posts from here..
