Another new adventure starts in this episode of Jintai, our heroine is met with a situation one would describe as “life threatening” – yet having also become acquainted with a nekomimi girl, she lives another day.
This episode’s start sees our heroine finding sudden involvement in something one may recall having been mentioned earlier within the previous escapade – a UN director has come to propel the construction of the “Human Monument” project, a venture which is extravagantly being promoted as something which will basically glorify all of what humanity has, or believed itself to have, achieved.
Our heroine isn’t particularly excited about anything regarding the undertaking – although she does what she is tasked, and her grandfather tells her she’s to have a role in the work as well. Yet before any of that, the development of this enterprise is going to expend a significant amount of electricity – and while a means of procuring the necessary energy has been realized, there remains an issue in that as our heroine finds out, the fairies apparently will not stay if electromagnetic waves are high in the vicinity.
Albeit the fairies depart, they do leave our heroine with a reference text regarding the expectations she should have whilst no fairies are present – and to sum up the anticipations, they’re quite grim. Nonetheless, it’s not as if our heroine has a seizure over the matter or locks herself up – she seemingly carries on with her daily duties, and what subsequently comes forth is a festival celebrating the electricity, as well as the “Human Monument”.
During this celebration, the heroine meets a rather peculiar individual who speaks in a manner which implies they’re a robot of some sort – yet their appearance is actually that of an adorable nopan and nekomimi girl. Our heroine learns from this abnormal character that they’re searching for something – however aside from that, there’s not much else to be understood as the person in question doesn’t seem too sure about anything themselves, and our heroine of course can’t do much as result either.
Later, an outing has commenced – we’re dropped into a scene in which different authorities are splitting up to explore designated areas, and our heroine is assigned a rather intriguing yet diminutive park area.
As one would expect, the place proves anything but average – our heroine heads into a building with her assistance, and not too long passes before they find themselves entrapped in a complex maze with no viable communication methods, and essentially stranded worse than they would be on an island. Interestingly, this place of perplexing mystery seems to have some relation to what the nekomimi bishoujo of earlier was seeking – yet our heroine doesn’t make the connection, at least not for the time being, and she continues into the depths of the venue instead.
It’s not that she wishes to proceed, however she hasn’t any alternative options as there’s seemingly no exit – and continuing onward into the place, her foresight was correct in that it’s certainly holding nothing favorable. Advancing, she comes across a few traces of a society past – yet she also encounters strange blob creatures which are seemingly acidic to the touch. She and the assistant escape through corridors, eventually coming into a room where they believe they’re safe – but it’s not more than a while till an even greater danger than goo creatures arrives.
A vicious metallic hound has appeared – and while it looks all hope is lost in terms of survival, the nekomimi girl suddenly manifests from who knows where and rescues our heroine.
The current matter faced is a complicated one which leaves us quite eager to see the conclusion of – as indeed, Jintai seems to enjoy ending whilst off the side of a cliff.
Whatever the situation is, it’s apparent that the nekomimi girl has something to do with this city our heroine is currently in – and it should also be noted that one fairy did return to our heroine, however the rest remain at large. Surely, the electricity can not last as the fairies must return eventually – and it should also be kept in that the electricity looks to be source of power for the goo creatures. And on note of a conundrum more concerning, curiosity kindles regarding the black monolith which is found twice in two separate locations.
Jintai isn’t a series where all is so obvious to foresee – although at the very least, one can say that this was certainly an engaging episode, and hopefully, the cute nekomimi character remains relevant throughout the series.
