The new baddies who don’t have an official team name that I’m aware of so I’ll address them as the “Agents of Illuminati” had Maria’s Squad in a pinch but Hibiki’s logic defying power saved the day. How did the agents respond?
The agents withdrew after their former “invincible” serpent was destroyed but not before announcing their plans as freeing humanity from their current shackles or “opening their future”. It’s similar to Ryoko’s goals…though hopefully it won’t involve trying to crash the moon on the Earth again.
Back at school Miku used her “You can’t hide anything from me anymore” face and made sure Hibiki told her every single detail about her latest mission.
Symphogear’s so awesome it even made Tiki’s reawakening a magnificent spectacle. For now all we need to know about Tiki is that she’s one of the original Autoscorers (possibly the very first created) Carol’s dolls were based on and she’s extremely loyal to the Pavarian Illuminati’s leader Adam, who for now is playing the role of the mysterious mastermind and like Saint-Germain is over 400 years old.
Prelati and Cagliostro were sent to ambush Maria and Tsubasa who were delivering an important package to home base. Luckily Tsubasa used her “best girl” skills to ward off the attackers and save Maria from getting crushed by the ocean.
Our lovebirds continued their conversation at a diner. Hibiki brought up the Christopher, Stefan and Sonia thing. She wondered how to cheer up Christopher when Christopher and Tsubasa surprised them by also being at the diner. Christopher used her much loved tough girl act and Tsubasa kept her in check because that’s what a good senior does.
Team Symphogear were then called to take care of another Alca-Noise attack. The Agents of Illuminati came prepared with a new experimental Alca-Noise that could create a pocket dimension and greatly power up all Alca-Noise in range.
Their regular armor attacks had no effect so they called upon the power of the Ignite Module. A risky move but necessary to fight the powered up Alca-Noise and come up with a sweet counterattack. It involves sonic booms and Tsubasa’s GLORIOUS jet blade.
Can’t leave out Elfnein who again had to remind herself that she’s a huge part of the team and provide invaluable assistance to our heroines. She also deserves a head pat.
Though the new Alca-Noise failed the Agents of Illuminati felt they had enough data to plan their next attack later but Tiki believed now was the right time to go all out on our heroines. Will they be ready for the fearsome foursome’s assault or will we have to wait a bit longer for the highly anticipated clash? Tune in next time to find out.
