Kyoshiro blows that thick black smoke at Kate and Itsuka intercepts it. Miki demands to know what is going on and Kyoshiro tells her that “they” want the land, but it sounds false. Kate says that Kyoshiro is working for “them”. Miki and Kate transform and the fight begins. Kate takes on the soldiers as Itsuka and Miki go at it. But at Kate hits the soldiers, they disappear and Miki wonders what they are. Kate aims for Kyoshiro next and his eyes glow red again. He puts up a barrier and Kate is thrown back.
Asuta appears and yells for his father to stop. Kate collapses as she loses her power, but she tells Asuta that she’s fine. Kyoshiro wants to know why his “worthless son” is there. Asuta says that he’s there to talk some sense into his “idiot father”. As they talk, Asuta, Kate, and Itsuka are surrounded by more soldiers and there are people back in the trees with more black smoke. Kate vows to conquer the world and Itsuka’s eyepatch falls off. She begins to wail like a baby and clutches at Kate.
Kyoshiro tells Kate that world conquest is just an illusion, and she accuses him of trying to make Asuta in his image. Kate tells Kyoshiro not to “underestimate the power of an unhappy little girl” and announces that she has a secret weapon, but collapses again. She’s asleep again and Itsuka wails that she’s dead. What can Asuta do now? Kyoshiro says it’s time to end the “comedy act”. He makes a signal and Miki commands the soldiers to take aim at the group. But she hesitates in giving the order to fire.
An alarm goes off and Kyoshiro is informed that the other Zvezda “leaders” have escaped. KuruMi runs off to join his friends and form the tentacle monster and Natasha is with it. However, Kyoshiro was expecting this and calls for his anti-monster weapon. That robot looks very familiar! LOL Natasha tells Dva to protect Kate and Itsuka as she takes on the soldiers and the robot.
Goro is alive! He has a few choice words for Kaori and tells her to go find her own happiness. Then he kisses his sister-in-law! And Kaori doesn’t seem to mind in the least! The robot destroys the monster and the KuruKuru and Natasha fall near Dva. He drops Kate to see to Natasha, but Yasu uses the robot to pick up Kate. He also has Galaktika! The toy wasn’t burned after all! Natasha manages to grab Galaktika and makes a run for it. The soldiers shoot at her, but White Robin shows up to help her friends. It turns out that the Natasha that grabbed Galaktika is really Roboko – she’s all right too!
Asuta has to face his father again. Galaktika becomes a weapon and Asuta attacks Kyoshiro but he puts up his barrier again. But Galaktika is not to be outdone. Goro and Kaori now join the group, and Goro comforts Itsuka. Her first meeting with Kate is shown, as well as the story behind her eyepatch. Kaori puts the eyepatch back on Itsuka and she’s back to her old self – enough to complain that the patch is on the wrong eye. Galaktika and Dva rescue Kate, and she is reunited with Galaktika. And Kate gets another form!
Kyoshiro light another cigar and as he inhales, the people in the trees disappear. Yasu the coward feels it’s a good time for him to leave and runs, but Itsuka calls his name and he freezes in fear. Kyoshiro keeps smoking those cigars and finally blows out the black smoke. It covers the robot and transforms it with Kyoshiro as its head. Yup – the man is definitely not human. As Kate takes on the robot, the “Zvezda Converts Third Armored Brigade” shows up to help her. They feel that Kyoshiro has gone too far, and he’s angered the Prime Minister. Itsuka comes on her motorcycle to get Kate, but Kate decides she wants to drive. Love the name of the motorcycle now – “Venera’s Variations in Two-Wheel Evasion Windrunner”. And the girl can drive too! Asuta says that she can hardly ride a bike and wonders if she even has a license. As Kate passes, she whips out her license – and it has no expiration date! LOL
The robot emits black smoke and Kate crashes. But after a quick drink of milk – “Venera’s Variations in Milk-Drinking Snowflake” – she’s all better, and attacks the robot head on. Everyone else lends a hand, and I cracked up at Dva defeating the soldiers with a flyswatter! Robin has a chance to ask Egret what she wants to protect and her answer is “a world where Robin can smile every day”. Robin amends that to “we” and so, Egret joins Zvezda as well.
Kate faces Kyoshiro and the robot again. She tells Kyoshiro that he works for “them”, but she wants him to swear an oath to her and join Zvezda. Kyoshiro takes it as a joke and attacks Kate. As Kyoshiro laughs, Kate says that she will meet each and every person in the world and conquer them. Kyoshiro tells her that it’s another impossible dream. Kate tells him that once he’s abandoned his ideals, he can no longer reach anyone’s heart. With the help of Galaktika, the robot is defeated and Kyoshiro is conquered! Yasu has switched sides again too. LOL With Kyoshiro’s downfall, the conquest of West Udogawa is complete. Next!
Life is back to normal. The base is back and the kids return to school. Even Yasu is back in the fold. White Light is still around as well. Goro took a vacation to recover from his injuries and visited his old friend, Pierre – he survived as well. Goro has also married Kaori! Kate is back to riding her cute pink bike with the training wheels. As she goes down the street with Asuta, I see people saluting her or greeting her respectfully. Kate still has a vision of the future and shows Asuta the blueprints for the statue that was in the first episode. And the tentacle monster is building it! LOL
Asuta is truly offended by the statue and the “artistic license” Kate took with it. He threatens to destroy it, but that is taken care of by an attack from the sky. Kate says that the peace is over. A new enemy has appeared and Zvezda gathers together once again. It seems the new enemy is from North America and the missile that destroyed the statue was a baseball. Look out America, here comes Lady Kate! “May the light of Zvezda shine throughout this world!”
In the end, Asuta claims that Kate will never conquer him. Challenge accepted! What an unexpectedly fun show this was! I would love to see Kate’s conquest of the world continue. The fight must have been long and hard considering the state of the state of the old city in the first episode. But there is also that pretty new one in the distance. Yup, I do want more of this one!
