Episode 6 –
Team Rabbits bids farewell to Team Doberman as they have been ordered to return to the Academy. But the enemy is on the way too and all expect a major battle to be forthcoming, so Team Doberman is returning to the frontlines.
Back at the Academy, the team is still the “Fail Five” and even a younger student mistakenly addresses them as Team Fail instead of Team Rabbits. The team is informed that they will be graduating early and joining the army. Their instructor will also be transferring with them.
As the boys pack up their dorm room, they remember first coming to the Academy and being put together as a team. They have some mixed feelings as they leave their room for the last time. They also visit their classroom one last time and the girls meet them there. Finally, they are all ready.
Suzukaze voices her concerns to Simon over Team Rabbits and tells him that they aren’t ready for the army yet and gives him some very valid reasons. However, Simon believes that in order for them to master their skills and equipment, Team Rabbits need to put their very lives on the line.
Their ASHMB units arrive and the team is expected to give a demonstration, but they really don’t want to. I can understand that with the reputation they have at this school. Of course they are worried about failing. They take off and the boys link up into one unit which is pretty cool. But Tamaki messes up her fly by, although the male students didn’t mind too much when Suzukaze’s skirt blew up! However, the team is relieved once the demonstration is over.
The solitary graduation ceremony takes place for just the five team members and they each receive their medal of rank from Commander Simon. It’s a good thing the ceremony was private because Asagi trips going up the stairs to receive his medal. Then again, it was also filmed! Immediately after the ceremony, the team boards their transport to leave the Academy forever. It’s a bittersweet moment for all of them, but Izuru tells them that their home will be wherever their team is. Then he says that they should strive to do their best as “Team Fail”! LOL They are just getting too used to that name!
It got very emotional as the bus pulls out of the gate. The rest of the students were standing alongside the road giving them a final salute. The team stands and returns their salute. Ok, I admit that I teared up! And it looks like things are not going to be very pretty at the frontlines! These kids are in for an awful lot.
