Hi☆sCool! Seha Girls episodes 12 and 13 are now up on Crunchyroll, as the series reaches it’s end!
The girls aren’t far off graduating, with Medal counts into the 80s… except for Saturn, who’s only got 78. Before the next lesson can begin however, Center-Sensei is hacked into once again; and this time, things get really messy, with him turning into Black Asobin, an evil sod who promptly takes all of the credit medals the girls have accumulated; Saturn keeps one for some reason, a rare moment of good luck for her. The only way they can reclaim their medals is to enter Black Asobin World, a theme park of doom and stuff… this is beginning to sound like the Dreamcast’s Illbleed. Thankfully, the biggest threats here are SEGA games, not demon Sonic the Hedgehogs.
First of all, the girls enter the Virtua Fighter arena from the first episode, now pitting them against Neji from Roomania, a character seen previously in the series. The girls set out to fight, with the rest of their trials documented in the style of the Streets of Rage opening, complete with that kickin’ soundtrack. This wall of text details how several Assassin’s are lured to fight the Girls in Black Asobin World by the promise… of a famous voice actress’ autograph? Fair does. The Girls apparently battle through the hordes, suffering a few setbacks along the way; Dreamcast becomes homesick, Saturn’s, ahem, chest gets exposed, and Mega Drive… well, apparently nothing interesting happens with Mega Drive. Exciting stuff, here!
Eventually the Girls reach Black Asobin, who is inside another game; and lo and behold, it’s Space Harrier, one of my personal favourite games of all time. The machine requires Credit Medals, and since Saturn’s the only one that has any, it’s up to her, with some assistance from Dreamcast and Mega Drive manning the controls, to bring down Black Asobin, and win the medals they need. Whether they succeed, you’ll have to find out!
I won’t go into the final episode for spoiler reasons; but all I can say is, it’s a fitting end to what’s been a fantastic series. Will there be a Season 2? In my (NiGHTS into) dreams, maybe, but who knows? All I can say is, it’s been a blast watching this series, and I hope you all enjoyed it too!
