Ooooh, I loved this. I really enjoyed the technicalities of the battle and the idea that the good guys were hiding in the sand. It gets pretty hot down there, enough to threaten Maya’s life, so Gido decides to retreat. At the end, the doctor tells the awesome female captain that Maya is no ordinary girl. Go figure.
Well, I find myself liking all the characters except for the bland male lead and jealous blond girl. But…when is that ever new? =P I’m far more interested in the new villain who only makes a brief appearance.
While I don’t have a problem with Matsumoto’s art style, the production values sure are low this time around… It’s only six episodes long for crying out loud. Or maybe that is his style? xD
