Hey all! I wanted to apologize for the lack of reviews lately. Due to life stuff and lack of time, I’m going to have to drop my episodeic reviews for Attack on Titan: Junior High and Heavy Object. I simply don’t have the time to dedicate to both watching and reviewing them with my current schedule; if I had begun to review them when the season started, I would have been able to keep up a good schedule. As it is now, I can’t review them on an…Continue Reading “Update!”

Episode 4: The Price of Life

Release Date: October 25, 2015

Genre: Sci-fi, Mecha

Studio: Sunrise

Where to Watch: Daisuki, Crunchyroll

Synopsis: The episode begins with an explanation of Tekkadan’s plan to escort Princess Kudelia: they need to get to an orbital station, secure a ship formerly owned by CGS, and from there take some back routes to arrive on Earth, due to the major spaceways being watched by Gjallarhorn. One of the leftovers from CGS, a Mr. Todo, recommends that they use a company called Orcus to get to Earth, as he knows them personally, but he seems to have less-than-upright motives for doing so. As Orga dispatches Ahki and some others to secure the ship, we are taken to the Gjallarhorn Inspectors as they check out the records of Major Coral, the officer who sent the attack against CGS in the previous episodes. They don’t see eye-to-eye, and the Inspectors leave to investigate the conflict themselves. Meanwhile, Mika invites Kudelia to visit the farm of Biscuit’s grandmother, and they have some time to talk. Kudelia just barely manages to avoid the sudden intrusion of the Gjallarhorn Inspectors, as they have a run-in with Mika and Biscuit as they drive around the area searching for clues. As Mika and the gang return to base, they are greeted with the new symbol for Tekkadan, and yet Todo seems to be up to something.
