    Going down together.

    Here's an episode focused on Lucille, and she saved the day with Narumi in no condition to fight after his body received so many holes. But in taking out Dottore, she bites the dust, all while both the good guys and bad guys are dropping like flies. Just sad to see Lucille going out there, but she has been living on borrowed time. And now, Francine awaits.

      The joke's on him.

      Narumi is back and stronger than ever after he got equipped with some new weapons, but in the end the Francine he destroyed was a fake and the real one is apparently Shirogane, whose real name is Eleonore, as the guy who told Narumi to go to the Sahara just sat back and watched all the fighting go down. That was just a bitter pill to swallow there with lots of people sacrificing their lives to put an end to the Zonapha and make Narumi this overpowered freak only to learn that they got the fake and that the real one actually might be his closes ally. Interesting to see what happens next in light of all this.

        He's not who he think he is.

        It was suspicious that Masaru obtained his fortune when his father died, and as it turns out he is Sadayoshi, at least in mind. As it turns out, Masaru is an illegitimate child and Sadayoshi transferred his mind over to Masaru, but it's not a complete takeover. But what that means is that Masaru can now use marionettes that Sadayoshi built, which saved his bacon back there. That was quite a huge reveal there going to show that something was amiss in all this as usually when someone dies one person does not inherit everything, much less to an illegitimate child.

          From a different perspective.

          And now, Masaru inherits Shoji's memories of his past that dates back to a time long ago when he created the shiroganes that Masaru now uses. He learned under Yin, and then came Tohno-Dayu, or Angelina, and they fell in love with each other. But of course, things didn't exactly go well as she vanished after saving him from an inferno, and then he drank some Aqua Vitale hoping to be with her for all eternity. Pretty interesting backstory that was as it goes to show what Masaru is dealing with as he's being used like a puppet.

            There's only one, and he's not it.

            Things are getting quite complicated here as now Shoji tells Masaru that Sadayoshi is not his son, thus in turn Masaru is not his grandson. The guy to be known as Sadayoshi was adopted by Shoji, while his only child is Eleonore, who is known today as Shirogane. He was trying to make peace there as this Francine was tossed away because she couldn't laugh, and the soft stone inside Angelina was sought to convert Zonapha sufferers into shiroganes. Lots of background information as has been the case for recent episodes as what is clear is that not everybody is who they think they are in this whole ordeal.

              The price of smiles.

              Not long after Eleonore was born, automata come knocking and are after the soft stone that Angelina gave to the baby, and the automata Francine took the baby to get her out of harm's way. And after stumbling into a well, the Aqua Vitae activates causing the water there to become acidic, and Francine used the last of her life to calm her down and dispel the toxic waters. Things just continue to be so messed up in the world that the characters have been living in as it's no wonder why Shirogane has such a chip on her shoulder. But at least they got a smile out of her even when all hell broke loose. It will be interesting to see where this all leads to.

                Lurking in the shadows.

                And the reason why Sadayoshi, or rather Dean as that's his real name, is so despised is revealed as he stole the everything away from Shoji. He used to serve as a subordinate, but then things boiled over for him when Angelina chose to fall in love with Shoji instead of him. Then to stick it to him, he put himself into Shoji's grandson. That was quite the elaborate scheme there that he pulled off, and as if all that wasn't bad enough, he has stolen Masaru's identity all for the sake of his grudge against Shoji. No wonder why Masaru is the hunted as not only does he have a massive fortune, but he has Sadayoshi within him, who is an evil man.

                  Papa's got a brand new body.

                  And the long backstory finally finishes up as last time Sadayoshi was revealed to be the cause of why all hell broke loose, with the last piece being how he managed to inhabit Masaru's body. It turns out that only a small portion of his soul made it in as Shoji sacrificed himself to keep that bastard from taking Masaru for himself as he was downloading his mind into his, but Shoji puts a stop to that by drowning in a tub of acid. But even so, Sadayoshi is back in a new, artificial body and is ready to take everything away to stick it to Shoji, and it turns out that Sadayoshi is Jin, the jealous brother of Yin. So through all that, Masaru finally understands the situation as he calls Shoji grandfather just before he dies, all while Sadayoshi is the guy who started this whole mess and needs to be stopped. And it all starts with rescuing Shirogane from him. So while the backstory was dragged out, hopefully this will lead to better things moving forward as I lost sense of a lot of things during this stretch, but I understand how important it is to make sure everything is all set up.

                    Face-off against Faceless.

                    Now that the backstory has been fully explained, it's go time now as things are quite chaotic. At least Masaru knows just how no-good his "father" was, and that he's determined to not let him take over, but before that Eleonore has been kidnapped, all while Faceless, who is actually Sadayoshi, is out to cause this Zonapha epidemic around the world using the silver goddesses to do his bidding. And just when Guy was about to bite the dust, in comes Narumi to save the day, and then it's back to the hospital that's under attack. Things are finally moving again, and it's so chaotic.

                      Heads I win, tails you lose.

                      The chaos continues, this time with the focus on Mingxia as she's battling Jones, the gambler. Of course, betting against him is a bad idea, not because Mingxia has bad luck, but because Jones is a cheater as he can manipulate the bets at will. So she takes matters into her own hands and takes luck out of the equation with that sucker punch that breaks him. While that's going on, George and Ashihana have their own battles, and while Ashihana was given the option to just walk away, he has his pride. It's all action here as it goes to show that Faceless means business.

                        Blood-stained puppets.

                        Ashihana has his fight with Pantalone, and just when he thinks he figured out his attack patterns, he hasn't seen anything yet. After getting impaled with his own blade, Ashihana remembers that Aqua Vitae is poisonous to automata, and as such he uses his own blood to defeat Pantalone as he took it in after sucking George's blood out. And then George had a tough time against his opponent, and while he defeated the enemy, he bites the dust, all while Ashihana is about to kick the bucket as well. Pretty intense battles there going to show that it's going to take everything these guys have if they are going to make it out alive and well.

                          All aboard the Clown Express!

                          The fighting at the hospital for Zonapha patients wraps up with Narumi managing to get everybody who is still alive out of the facility that has been overtaken by the shirogane deployed by Faceless, and Narumi received some unexpected help from Pantalone, who had a change of heart after being injected with Aqua Vitae form his battle with Ashihana. Narumi and Mingxia had a two-on-two battle, and while Narumi made quick work of the drill guy, the trapeze guy was a lot of trouble, and that made Narumi use his upgraded parts to punch through that durable body of his. And then there's Guy fighting a lot of small fries by himself and he's all worn down after all that. Quite a thrilling escape that was as it took everything those guys had to get everybody out to safety on that train. Now, the focus shifts to Masaru as he's confronting Faceless himself seeing that he's the guy he had believed all this time to be his father who tried to take over his body.

                            No humans shall be harmed.

                            And now, the final cour begins with a new opening, and an ending that is the same song as the first opening. Masaru is in the fortress where automata are being created by Faceless, and he and Lise get help along the way by automata aligned with Francine, who has ordered them not to kill any humans. Masaru is helped out by Columbine after she gets attacked by Naya, and Arlequino helps Lise out when she gets chased. So after running around the mansion, Lise falls down, while Masaru is taken to the place where the original bodies for the automata are lying. Something big is about to be revealed, and it's not going to be pleasant to say the least.

                              Nothing lasts forever.

                              And the truth is revealed as Colombine unleashes all of the old guys from their chambers, and those automatons sure were in for quite the shock. Pretty emotional that was for Naya and the others meeting their original bodies and killing them by accident. They wanted to live forever, and Faceless could give them that, so that's why they fought for them. Nevertheless that was just sad how things turned out.

                                Mind is playing tricks on him.

                                And now, Faceless is really going for it by sending Shirogane out to space, while possessing Masaru's body and making it look like Masaru defeated himself to get the chained-down Shirogane to submit to him. He thought he had it all figured out, but there there's just one problem. Actually three as not all automatons are on-board with his plan, he doesn't know how to lose, and most importantly he can't completely take over Masaru's mind. Even when he's in it to lose, his instincts prevent him from doing it. Even so, things are still dire for Masaru and Shirogane as the rocket is about to blast off into space, all while Colombine is engaged against another loli automaton.
