Summary:

In the control room, the staff monitoring over the carnival receives a message that “Freezing” was used on Satellizer L. Bridgette. The use of Limiters in the carnival is against the rules, but they can’t identify the identity of the person who used “Freezing”, but Sister Margaret recognizes him as Aoi Kazuya. The carnival finally ends with Satellizer being dethroned as Rank 1 and the whole school is talking about it since it was unexpected and everyone is curious about the “mysterious” person who intervened in the fight and cause Satellizer to lose. Meanwhile, Kazuya regrets his actions and wonders why he even thought Satellizer was his sister as student council president Fairchild explains to him that a loss is undisputable even if it’s caused by interference in the carnival. He asks Fairchild where he can meet Satellizer so he can apologize to her, but Fairchild advises him not to do it and even suggests transferring to him as Satellizer is apparently a problem child and has caused many incidents where she attacked Pandoras and Limiters who touched her.

Coincidently Satellizer passes by, and Kazuya goes to apologize to her. Unfortunately she isn’t responding to her so Kazuya grabs her hand to get her attention. Satellizer remembers something from her past and starts blushing and pulls away from Kazuya causing her to trip and lose her glasses. Kazuya picks up her glasses and hands them back to her. Satellizer blushes and leaves, and Kauzuya once again grabs her hand and apologizes for causing her loss.  Satellizer tells him to let go and tells him to not to involve himself with her again and materializes her volt weapon and tells him not to get any closer.

While Satellizer is pointing her weapon at Kazuya, Ganessa Roland comments to Satellizer on her unsightly appearance at pointing her weapon at an innocent underclassman. Satellizer glares at Ganessa, and Ganessa challenges Satellizer again to prove that her victory in the carnival wasn’t a fluke. Ganessa materializes her chains and the fight begins, but Satellizer is able to easily settle it in an instant despite still being injured and having her right eye bandaged up.

An enraged Ganessa activates her Pandora mode (an experimental augmented system that boosts the Pandora’s abilities that was created for real battle against Novas that apparently only of few Pandoras are capable of using) and restarts the fight. With her enhanced abilities, Ganessa seems to have the advantage, as she’s able to easily entrap Satellizer. Kazuya begs her to stop as the winner is clear, but Ganessa slaps Kazuya as he’s interfering with her victory. This gets Satellizer worked up and she also activates her Pandora mode. In a single attack, Satellizer once again defeats Ganessa. Satellizer walks over to Ganessa to finish her off, but two instructors stop her and have her release her Pandora mode. Kazuya asks Fairchild who they are, and she tells them that they’re the Training Instructor Kim Yumi, and the Medical Officer Elise Schmidtz and four years ago they put a stop to the 8 Nova Clash. Kazuya thinks to himself that these two fought together with his sister 4 years ago.

Satellizer and Ganessa are punished for violating the rules, and Yumi looks at Kazuya and comments that she doesn’t recognize him. Elise tells her that he’s Kazuha’s little brother. Later at the main office, Sister Margaret gives Kazuya his school ID and hopes he’ll become a fine limiter. Kazuya goes to his room and meets his neighbor Arthur Climpton. Kazuya asks him about Satellizer, but Arthur tells him not to get involved with her as she doesn’t trust Limiters and tells him to find a good Nee-san like his, who turns out to be Ganessa Roland. As Kazuya sleeps thinking about Satellizer, some Pandora is planning to add him to her harem of Limiters.

Opinions:

This episode followed up on what happened last episode with Kazuya trying to apologize for the “incident” and causing Satella to lose, but it feels like they’re going slower than I would like to in erms of story. All the exciting stuff is up ahead, and from the pace they’re going at it seems like maybe 10 or so episodes before we get there. So after the second episode I think this series seems pretty typical so far of an action anime with fan service; though I think the animation for the fan service is lacking. If I had to put it in a word, the fan service lacks “shininess”. There isn’t any luster or shine on those important parts during a fan service scene. I’m thinking that things will pick up in later episodes as I remember feeling the same way was I was reading earlier chapters of the manga. I still plan to watch the series to see what happens, but as it stands I might jump ship and switch to blogging another anime. The anime right now is like a shonen anime with a new opponent every week, but lacking that shonen atmosphere that mysteriously drags you in. As for possible animes I might switch to, I’ve thought about Infinite Stratos, but a lot of people are already doing that so I’ll just probably blog about my 2 cents every now and then. Realistically I might just start blogging “Kore Wa Zombie Desu Ka?”; it’s a ridiculous concept and a cliched Love Comedy Harem story, but it seems like a real fun series and I love the opening for it.
