And they are still fighting the thing from the desert only due to various systems that make no sense the two main fighters are getting taken out of the fight, at least until Mikazuki decides that he doesn’t much care about the consequences. I guess this was supposed to build tension and nearly taking Ride out was supposed to somehow make you feel this was dramatic but mostly this episode is a lot of shouting and dust clouds. Iok is still a moron and the fact that he hasn’t been killed, either by the armour or by his companions is really starting to bug. I guess he’s hanging around for the crazy factor for awhile. Mostly, I just want this fight over because I’m not invested in it.
