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.
