Hisone to Masotan – Episodes 4 – 5 Recap (Is It Evil?)
Oh, look. More adorable dragons. How Evil are the fourth and fifth episodes of Hisone to Masotan?
It seems like Nao and Hisone have grown a lot closer than they were in previous episodes. They’re almost buddies now. Nao is still slightly jealous but, she isn’t the antagonist like she was before. I hope she gets a dragon soon. She did next to nothing in these two episodes due to her not having one. Anyway, onto episode four. It started with the people at the base preparing for new arrivals. Yes, three new pilots with their dragons are coming to the base for a joint training session.
The training session is a simulated escort mission involving the D-Pilots going head to head with two of the male pilots. Sounds simple right? As long as the girls protect the objective, the guys shouldn’t win. It’s two against four anyway. There is one problem though. One of the new D-Pilots doesn’t treat her dragon right. She makes it stay in vehicle form even when it’s resting. This leads to the team failing the mock mission due to her dragon breaking out of plane form. Hisone lets her have it too, though it’s accidental.
That’s all four episode four. Episode five continued right from that, showing the aftermath of the team’s failure. They’ve all been suspended from their flight duties. Hisone uses this time to try and bond with the new girls a little more and she doesn’t screw it up too much. The one she went off on still wants nothing to do with her though.
After their break, the pilots are informed that their leaders have decided to test their teamwork, but there’s one major catch. If they fail this mission, they’ll be kicked out of the D-Pilot program. Hisone doesn’t take that idea well at all.
The time arrives for the mission and it becomes clear this is just training. You see, the commanders think stranding them on a deserted island despite not getting along is a good idea. If that sounds easy, the dragons can’t fly for an unspecified reason. So they have to stay on the island until they discover a way off the island.
Their predicament got worse when a dragon ate their supplies. Hisone ended up finding water and most of the others started to get along with her too. The one that seems to think a dragon is just a tool was off trying to make a raft so she can leave alone. I don’t think that’s going to work out for her though. Her dragon is still in plane mode and suffering while the other dragons are having fun.
Overall these episodes were about as Evil as a Villain (9). It’s enjoyable enough for me not to complain about. The new mean girl is getting on my nerves a bit, but I think she’ll turn around in a few episodes. If you want to see something that’s ridiculous for other reasons check out CVoyage’s reviews for 3D Kanojo: Real Girl.
Hisone to Masotan is currently streaming on Netflix. Well, that’s all I have for you today. Thanks for letting me waste your time, people.
Keep It Classy,
