#MuvLuv ep10: let Yuuya be a man! …so we can stop hearing his whining. #anime
Back for more Muv-Luv fun! It seems Yuuya is getting a lot of
attention and praise for his actions in the last battle, but that
comes with positive and negative consequences. Yuuya has gotten a
taste of real battle. That and the memory of his duel with Yui has
fueled his competitive fire like nothing else. Plus the fact that he
merely fired a giant death ray doesn’t speak well to his piloting
skills, and he’s anxious to prove he has them. Everything is
literally pointing to him taking the Type 94 in for melee combat for
the next battle. But Yui has become extremely protective of him. All
this leads into a lot of awkward and testy debate on Yuuya and the
Type 94’s next roles in battle. In the end, it’s decided he’ll go out
in the incomplete Type 94, but from the very rear to observe as the
Active mobile suits get their melee testing. We’re beginning to learn
how far Yui is willing to go to protect Yuuya at this point, and it
may be bordering on unprofessional. Or maybe she’s just a good
commander who generally knows how to protect her pilots? Nah, it’s
We also learn quite a bit about the Thunder God. Her motherly role
among these child soldiers has become very clear. But I didn’t know
she was Russian herself. She turns out to be a motivated by a
combination of guilt, duty and motherly instincts. I can see why it
makes her such a fierce and effective commander. We even learn that
her own child was taken away to serve just like the kids she commands.
I just hope all this information doesn’t turn into a death flag. And
I hope that maybe we’ll get to meet her kid if she does, too. Though
given the death rate and brutality of this war, I sincerely doubt itl.
I had a feeling things were going to go badly in this episode’s
battle. Things were going too smooth and routinely this time around.
And I guessed right. I don’t know what is commanding the BETA forces,
but it’s not dumb. Their underground attack is a near perfect
maneuver, and they just may take the base. And at the end of the
episode, only Yui is there to defend the place.
