Girls’ Last Tour 5+6: The Great Flying Motorhome

Let’s quickly go over episode 5 and then go directly to episode 6.

Chito and Yuuri's dream house.jpg

Chito and Yuuri’s dream home.

Episode 5 had three parts. The first part had Chito and Yuuri look for shelter while discussing the city infrastructure and what the definition of a home was, rather what a home meant to them. The two brought up their vic as a candidate for a home. They then found an apartment and fantasized about all the furniture and decor their perfect apartment would have and how they’d love to live the rest of their lives getting by and then going home and enjoy the sanctity of their little paradise. Hopefully one day they’ll be able to create their dream home together.

The second part had our heroines nearly getting into a disastrous accident due to lack of sleep the night prior so they took a nap. What followed was an enjoyable bizarre dream by Chito that always had Yuuri as the antagonist. There may have been other meanings behind Yuuri’s appearance in the dream besides Chito reflecting how annoying Yuuri can be to her at times. The one thing to take away from the dream was Chito’s wish to have been able to show her (most likely) deceased grandfather a beautiful sight like the ocean.

Rainy Melody shelter. Dunno what the shape of the cave was referencing, if anything.

The third part references a comment Chito made a couple episodes ago about there being plenty to see still in this post-apocalyptic world they were in. The melody created that combined the rain and several metallic items laying around was an example of such. The insert ED here was really good.

EPISODE 6

Ishii

Chito and Yuuri meet Ishii.

Episode 6 was all about a lovely woman our heroines met. The two were stranded because their vic, later revealed to be a Kettenkrad (I’m not a military otaku nor did I look up what the vehicle was called before this episode), had broken down. Chito slowly lost hope while Yuuri handled the situation the way one would expect from her. Suddenly a remote control airplane flew by and the woman controlling it. She introduced herself as Ishii and offered to fix the Kettenkrad if they helped her with something in return.

Airplane blueprints and documents.

In return for fixing their vic our heroines had to help Ishii finish building an airplane she’d been working on for years. She had the blueprints so she figured “Let’s do it”. The main reason she wanted to finish the plane though was to escape the city and fly at least 2000 KMs to the West (I think) to another city she might have seen beyond the horizon. She didn’t want to spend the rest of her life cooped up in the hangar before the limited rations she had left ran out. Basically she didn’t want to die there. This desire to escape the city and the eventual death that awaited those who stayed made Chito think really hard about the meaning behind their journey and whether it really was all hopeless. Yuuri again reacted as one would expect from her. Oh and our heroines briefly brought up the fact that despite it being humanity’s fault the city they live in in ruins nearly devoid of life, people like Ishii and Kazoku showed them that there are good people in this world.

Three potatoes.

I don’t want to give away how the flight went but let’s just say it went from predictable, surprising, back to predictable and then profound. It makes more sense seeing what happened.

This show, like Konohana Kitan, continues being a sleeper hit of the Fall season.

    This show is awsome, but what keeps me watching the most is the amazing VO in here.

    After the rainstorm, Chi and Yuu performed MY Mai TONIGHT and raced to a lower level of the city.

    Chi’s ok with being eaten as long as it’s Yuu.

    This marks the end of volume 2 of the manga, which is as far as the Yen Press release is. Next week is unexplored territory for me.

    Guys, I think I’m going crazy.

    I think Chiito x Yuuri actually ended up being my otp of the season, such a cute, playful relationship that still has an inner layer of reliance on one another, they don’t explicitly say it, but they care deeply for eachother on a level that most people irl don’t really experience, whether or not it’s due to their trying circumstances or actual, genuine romantic feelings, I wouldn’t know.

    Speaking of the circumstances, I recently had the epiphany that it really isn’t very much of a good thing for me to ship them, seeing as they should be aiding in the effort to bring humanity back from the brink of extinction, but I elected to not care about humanity and pick yuri over the greater good.

    Either way, this is one of my favorite shows this season so far, the world is simply beautiful, the soundtrack/sound design in general is great, not to mention that the seemingly dull characters and plot have a lot more depth than most would originally perceive, really looking forward to more.

      The show keeps on giving and people interested in the topics brought up can get a lot from them.

      Like Mauron said, they may one day find a special kind of facility, if you know what we mean…

      Putting this where I originally meant to: I think we just need to count on Chi to find a lab that can let them create science babies together, and have people plus yuri.

        If we’re talking “science baby” technology… Without donated or artificial Y chromosomes, the genetic material of two women can only yield female zygotes (more precisely, ones with only X, e.g. XX or sometimes XXX), if they both only have XX or other X-only configuration(s) of allosomes. (I have to be specific because there are some women who do in fact have Y chromosomes – and not just trans women.) Just adding that because recreating human society as it was before the apocalypse is impossible without access to Y chromosomes. A women-only population might be achievable though.

        For the whole rebuilding society effort, they’ll need a larger group and a variety of skills. My thoughts were specifically on a way to have Chi and Yuu contribute to the repopulation efforts without disrupting their ship.

  6. This show is just great. Amazing. Though not quite as amazing as Konohana. But still. Amazing.

    That rain melody/insert song moment was just beautiful.

    A lot of things surprised me episode 6. Mostly how the flight went, indeed. A defining moment in the sense of which direction this show is likely to take, I thought. Like “if the plane manages to fly, and she gets out of the city, then maybe this is a story about hope, not giving up, ec. If it doesn’t, then is it a story about something else?” Or something. Can’t quite put into words what that something else is yet though.

      It’s certainly one of the best of the Fall season.

      So beautiful.

      It has different morals but like you I can’t quite pinpoint the show’s main theme. So far I have written that it’s “Make the best of a grim situation”.

    I swear my heart dropped when that plane broke apart, even if it was predictable. I kept thinking the whole time as she was reving it up and rolling forward, that it’d be so messed up if she crashed. I felt it coming, but I wanted to be wrong. When it broke apart, I legit shouted out “no! I wanted to be wrong”. No lie lol. I’m so glad she had that parachute though. Also, idk if it was the VA, character design or everything combined, but I found Ishii really alluring and attractive. This show definitely is the sleeper hit of this season and I hope more will discover its wonder in time.

      They gave us a false hope that it wouldn’t crash…to have it crash seconds later. Not cool. Yes. glad Ishii survived and let’s hope she’ll be well in the lower levels.

      Yes. She’s fetching.
