Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head
The “COVERS” begin their assault on the citizens, even capturing Mako. Ryuko manages to escape with the help of Satsuki using a explosive. 1 month later and the “COVERS” have taken over the town. The four Devas join forces with Nude Beach, and Satsuki’s forces against the Life Fibers appear to be losing.
Ryuko is comatose as the Mankanshoku family and Senketsu sit by her side. Meanwhile, Satsuki is captured by her mother. After some more inappropriate touching she tell Satsuki how her father change his appearance and faked his death. When her states that she let her live due to maternal kindness, Satsuki doesn’t believe her.
She mentions a name of something or someone ” Shinra-Kouketsu”, her mother is surprised by this. She then begins to spank her daughter to get her to become enraged. Nudist Beach along with the devas battle against the COVER’s. Ira quickly uses their new weapons the “Super Suction Saver” to save Mako.
The COVER’s then use a noise technique waking up Ryuko. Enraged she easily dispatches the COVER’s without wearing Senketsu. When Senketsu appears Ryuko tell’s him that she’s “done with him” and “won’t put him on again”.
This episode was more relaxed in terms of action. I liked the fact that the Four Devas have joined forces with Nudist Beach. I find the “relationship” between Ira and Mako to be a interesting development.
Satsuki mother clearly has boundary issues, and I wondered what Shinra-Kouketsu is. I not surprised by Ryuko feeling like a “monster”, I can image that the new revelation about her mother and her being part Life Fiber has thrown her for a loop.
