The Sky Girls decide to hold a Christmas Party for all of the ship in order to teach Aisha about what Christmas means.
The end of this episode was of course the most interesting part. As I kind of ranted about in the previous Sky Girls post, for the most part this show has been incredibly slow with developing any plot it might have. This appearance of Yuuki really seems to be the main and only plot that this series has, and while itâ€™s interesting I still feel like it is coming a bit late. Iâ€™m not saying that it wonâ€™t be interesting to find out who things will resolve regarding Yuuki, as right now the show has become interesting, but it really isnâ€™t enough to justify the slow step up to this point. I think this series would have been so much better as a short 12 â€“ 14 episode series but because it isnâ€™t it really has almost reached the point of no return. The last episodes will probably be interesting and it will redeem the show a bit, but not really enough. Still, I am looking forward to finding out what happens. The show is FINALLY getting to the interesting part; Iâ€™m not going to dismiss it just because it took a long time to get there.
As far as the rest of the episode goes, it was alright. It really didnâ€™t serve much purpose at all as the only thing I can think that it might have tried to do is give Aisha some character development. The focus on teaching her about Christmas and all seemed way too weak to really count for anything though. Still, it was fun to see the Sky Girls and Yuko in Santa outfits. That was defiantly one of the high points of this episode. Aside from that this episode didnâ€™t really offer much at all except the cliffhanger at the end, hopefully the few remaining episodes will be exciting and they donâ€™t waste this slow boring build.
