Flip Flappers Episode 7



Flip Flappers this week seemed mostly pointless to the plot but fairly important for the characters covering Cocona’s inner conflict about what she was doing and the consequences of last week. That said, there’s very little that is new here. This is Cocona reverting to the cautious person she was pre-Papika and being frozen by her own uncertainty. However, the real payoff for the episode comes right toward the end where we may or may not have actually found out something about Papika and her mysterious past. Visually, this episode was average for the season but couldn’t hold up to the impressive visual display we were given in episode 6. This show continues to intrigue but also continues to delay any kind of overall satisfaction by obscuring the overall objectives at every turn. Even when the scientist guy was asked directly to explain something he instead went on an ambiguous rant that mostly amounted to ‘I don’t know’. Which might be true or might be him withholding information and there’s really no way to tell at this point.

Flip Flappers is available on AnimeLab.

  1. I guess we’ll have to see where they go with Mimi. Too bad, as you said, the revelation came at the very end of the episode.

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. My favourite part of this episode? They credited each of the different Papikas (who have a unique name) in the credits. Big thanks to Papino, Papito, Papia, Papiyu, Papiyo, Papiko, Papiya, and Papina. I wonder who was who?

    I’d say that surely a show couldn’t give us so little directed plot and still be interesting, but I’m still loving and looking forward to it each week. I do hope that we get some kind of exposition and resolution before everything wraps up though and that there aren’t too many unanswered questions. For me, the biggest appeal is how well they portray the magical joy of exploring a different world, though I know some people seem to be very into the symbolism and all the possible themes.
