Sora wo Kakeru Shoujo - Episode 19

Leopard may have lost his mirrors last time around, but buoyed by his reason success and surge in popularity, it doesn't take him long to track them down and grab them back, restoring him to full health... Well, somewhat at least.

Despite regaining those mirrors, he still hasn't restored power to all parts of the colony, leaving a fair few disgruntled refugees... However, such trifles are of no concern to Leopard, who is far more interested in rescuing Dead Leaves... sorry, Akiha... after her kidnapping at the hands of Aleida last episode. Regardless of those assertions however, the first half of this episode is more concerned with exploration of Leopard and getting things together within his colony (and not at all to do with seeing Kannagi wearing only a towel).

With that out of the way, we finally get to catch up with Akiha, and to a lesser extent Nami, who are rapidly becoming two sides of the same coin. That's not really Akiha's primary concern however, as she regains consciousness only to find herself trapped aboard Xanthippe amid a sea of boxes, leaving her to find an old friend only to be betrayed and left to what seems to be her inevitable fate.

After a first half that could arguably be described as slightly filler-esque, we get back into the swing of things for the second half of this episode, with Akiha and Nami both seeing the fruits of Nerval's plans, while the latter seems to be starting to form plans above and beyond her expected jurisdiction. As per usual with the series I have no idea what's going to happen next, but yet again I find myself looking forward to finding out a little more each and every time as the show develops.
