After the wonderfulness that was MeiFu we went back to Momo X Master Yuki this episode.
The episode started with Tsukikage planning on infiltrating Kyuten Labs because of Master Yuki’s suspicion of them being a major Moryo facility. Meanwhile Momo was texting her buddies as her birthday was fast approaching. She hoped to celebrate it with them but put it off to focus more on her training.
Tsukikage entered a familiar looking chamber but didn’t find anything noteworthy. Master Yuki however, wasn’t convinced Kyuten Labs had no connection with Moryo. She was right of course.
The Moryo agents quickly arranged a partnership with some kind of yakuza boss. It’s not really that important.
What was important was seeing the new and “improved(?)” Dolte. Reminds me of that one Dexter’s Laboratory episode. So Dolte’s power was enhanced at the cost of her intelligence, though her tracking ability and sense of smell also improved.
Skipping ahead a bit we joined Momo still conflicted about celebrating her birthday and working hard for Master Yuki. Speaking of Master Yuki she did her now vintage “I’m always near you” surprise appearance. She told Momo that although their job demands great discipline it didn’t mean gay ninja spies couldn’t enjoy their off days. Momo was still determined to work her butt off so as to never make her dearest Master look bad again. Master was like “It is cool, yes. As long as you follow the mission given and trust in me you will be alright. No need to push yourself harder than necessary”.
On their way to the base they ran into Byakko and the owl guard ensuring she did her job. Master Yuki explained she couldn’t leave until her body was cleared of all potential poison from the mind wipe drug she took and it was safe for her to go.
On to the mission. They were to follow and subdue two targets involved with drug smuggling. We joined Momo and Master Yuki who quickly immobilized the target. Momo was left to place a tracking device on the target while Yuki took care of a nearby passenger. Unfortunately for Momo the target didn’t come alone.
A boss battle ensued. Momo tried fighting back but none of her attacks had any effect on Dolte. Luckily Master Yuki returned to push Dolte back a bit.
Master Yuki was like “Calm yourself Momo. Panicking will not help you think properly in battle”. That’s also why Momo forgot to bring a Spyce with her. You know what that meant. The duo dodged a charging Dolte followed by Yuki shooting her with some mind wipe bullets and knocking her off the train down a river. To simplify Yuki’s explanation on how she could handle Dolte, she’s Level 50 whereas Momo was Level 20.
Momo was like “HUG ME MASTER!” but Yuki was like “Not now Momo”.
Afterward Momo continued pushing herself to near exhaustion. Eventually she took the hint and was like “Yeah. I’ll spend my day off celebrating my B-Day with my home girls”. This of course was a wise decision as Momo felt recharged on their next mission, which was infiltrating the yakuza boss’ hideout. If that weren’t awesome enough, she got to celebrate her birthday again with the Tsukikage after completing the mission. However, she wasn’t out of the woods as a certain Prototype She-Hulk followed her to the Curry House. Momo got a sneak attack and was badly hurt. All was not lost though.
She didn’t say that but she’s PISSED so let’s roll with it.
Momo passed out for a while but was greeted by a pleasant sight afterward. Master Yuki took good care of her while she was unconscious. She then brought up her continued suspicions of Kyuten Labs being a major Moryo facility (Again she’s right.) and how the yakuza gang was yet another diversion. Momo vowed to one day become her equal.
After the ED we got a preview of Theresia getting ready to face Tsukikage along with traitor revealing the identity of one of our heroines.
Yet another good episode. Like Rory though I too thought Prototype She-Hulk wasn’t as menacing as she’s hyped up to be. That or the Masters were far stronger than Moryo anticipated. She’s also a prototype, so there’s that. Maybe Theresia looks to be a much stronger opponent. Besides that we got more cool spy stuff and some nice Momo X Yuki development.
