Ymir puts her newly completed Hyper Vibration Armor on Mirim and sics Mirim on Annelotte.
The outfit is a little weird, but Claudette is still as electrifying as ever.
In her lab inside the Queen's castle at Gainos, Ymir completes the Hyper Vibration Armor using the Vibration Stone she stole from Yuit. Ymir puts the armor on Mirim and tests by tossing an axe at Mirim. The axe is bounced back by the Vibration Field, but the vibration is too much for Mirim to take and she collapses. Ymir then brings Mirim in front of Claudette and Elina to show off her work. Claudette hits Mirim with a lightning strike which sends Mirim crashing through a few walls and columns, but Mirim is physically unhurt but unable to stand because of the vibrating armor.
Yuit adapts quickly after finding out "Big Bro" has boobs.
In a village somewhere, Yuit makes a few buck selling her tabloid to the village people. Yuit and Vante are their way to Gainos to rescue Mirim and recover Yuit's gem. On the road, they spot LunaLuna on a tree branch. LunaLuna is looking at Annelotte being surrounded by the Queen's soldiers below the ledge. Annelotte escapes and run up the hill with soldiers on her trail. Yuit and Vante spot Annelotte and chase after her as well, while another group of soldiers spot LunaLuna. LunaLuna uses her tentacles to grope the soldiers into submission but she loses track of Annelotte. Meanwhile, Annelotte, Yuit and Vante evade the soldiers by hiding in a small creek.
Exorcism via spanking... that's a first.
Back at Gainos, Ymir learns that the soldiers have spotted Annelotte with Yuit and Vante and plans to send Mirim against Annelotte. Mirim overhears this and sneaks out into the city. Mirim finds refuge in the church and asks Sigui for help. After learning of Mirim's escape, Ymir comes out to track her down using her remote control for the armor. Ymir gets within range and turns on the armor which vibrates and makes Mirim squirm on the ground. Sigui mistakenly thinks that Mirim is possessed by demons and tries to spank out the evil out of Mirim with her staff, but her spanks are repelled by the armor and this makes Mirim even squirmier. Sigui prepares to unleash her fire purification on Mirim but Ymir arrives and retrieves Mirim.
This isn't going to end well.
At a rural road, Yuit and Vante part ways with Annelotte. Annelotte takes a road above a river and is met by Mirim who attacks with her Infinite Slasher chainsaw sword. Mirim swings blindly, but Annelotte cannot overpower her because of the Vibration Field. Back down the road, Yuit has a bad feeling and heads back to track down Annelotte. On the road above the river, Mirim disarms Annelotte and goes for the finishing blow. Yuit and Vante arrive and Vante launches a rocket punch to help Annelotte. Just as the rocket punch was about the hit, Yuit sees that the attacker is Mirim. At the same moment, LunaLuna jumps above to glomp Annelotte but ends up jumping onto the rocket instead. The rocket explodes and sends LunaLuna and Mirim flying. LunaLuna ends up lodged on a tree, while Mirim is retrieved from the forest below by Ymir. After the incident, Yuit affirms her mission to retrieve her family gem and save Mirim from Ymir, and Annelotte agrees to head to Gainos as well.
I had a feeling that the Hyper Vibration Armor would act like a giant vibrator. This is Queen's Blade after all, and this episode had some awful but hilarious scenes thanks partly to Ymir's new invention. It's too bad that Ymir is such an evil scientist now and not the enterprising comedian from the first two seasons of the show. The highlight... more like lowlight of the show as when Sigui tried to spank the demon out of Mirim only to make Mirim's armor vibrate harder. Spanking and vibrations tied to exorcism... that was just wrong on so many levels that it's hilarious. You can't help but laugh at how Queen's Blade's seeks out these "fan service" opportunities.
Back to the "plot", despite squirming in discomfort (or is it something else?) and lack of combat experience, Mirim actually managed to overwhelm and disarm Annelotte who looked quite ordinary in her fighting skills for the first time in this series. Annelotte may be holding back because she can see that Mirim isn't really doing this out of her own will, but mostly she just couldn't figure out the armor's power. The battle did convince Annelotte to accompany Yuit and Vante to Gainos and make Yuit more determined to take back her friend and gem and get back at Ymir.
In other news, LunaLuna had a few scenes but she was just comedic relief this episode. We also finally saw Claudette in this episode. The only thing she did was strike Mirim with lightning to test the armor. Claudette doesn't need to charge up her lightning attacks anymore and has a different and somewhere weird looking outfit. We'll have to see what sort of personality she has now that she is the ruthless ruler of the land.
