Martian Successor Nadesico Episode 18: Echoes of Self, Echoes of Water


Summary: The focus of this episode is Ruri and I’m not mad about it. There is a lot of ridiculousness with her biological parents and bad pizza but things get somber when she goes back to the facility she was raised in. But she makes a decision at the end about where her home truly is.

The good: This episode strikes multiple chords. We haven’t gotten too much about Ruri’s past up to this point. We’ve also seen the positives. This episodes shows us that damage has been done to Ruri because of how she was taught and why. Ruri insulting the pizza was a pretty funny sequence of scenes too.

The less good: Her biological family is ridiculous and this episode does seem a little rushed.
