Believe it folks! Hi☆sCool! Seha Girls episode 6 is on Crunchyroll, and along with it comes an appearance from everybody’s favourite spiny blue hedgehog!
In this week’s episode, the Girls are tasked with an exam, in which they enter the world of SEGA’s online arcade mech shooter, Border Break! Furthermore, if they manage to destroy the core of the area, they’ll be awarded 25 credit medals; and 50 if they do it without a mech!
Having all the luck in the world, Saturn gets thrown into battle without a mech, whilst Dreamcast and Saturn get the armour. Dreamcast then struggles to get used to the controls, and ends up going missing, to the annoyance of the other Girls. Dreamcast only gets into further trouble when she discovers an enemy, and tries talking out their issues; at which point Mega Drive steps in to deal some sharp justice. Then, tactics become involved, as the girls use a decoy (in the form of poor Saturn!) to lure out the enemy, and promptly slaughter them. Or at least, Mega Drive slaughters them, as Dreamcast continues to fumble about.
The three make it to the Core, but as they shoot it, Asobin warns them of hackers infiltrating the game; and the girls are unable to exit! The hacker turns out to be none other than the nefarious Dr. Eggman, who then shrinks the girls back to their Academy styles, and sets an entire army against them. Things are looking bad… but then Super Sonic Racing kicks in, and the above happens. To say I grinned like a child is an understatement.
I found this episode quite interesting, as Border Break’s something I wasn’t entirely familiar with previously, and now I really want to try it out! Maybe if I ever visit Japan… It also goes without saying that I was more than happy to see Mr. Needlemouse pop up, what with me being a huge Sonic the Hedgehog fan. I’m definitely looking forward to next week’s episode, entitled “Sonic vs Dr Eggman with the SEGA Hard Girls!” The preview looks great, too!
