Yes Lucas is alive! That was funny enttrance.
Kane had a twin, what a twist!! Btw Ironbeard is Marika's dad, so another twist there.
Coorie is a really beauty too, looks like those guys understood that, lol.
Chiaki was singing that too!? CUTENESS OVERLOAD!!!!!!!!!
Next episode will be the final battle.
Chiaki would do anything for Marika huh? She's embarrassed now but she definitely enjoyed singing with Marika XD!
So cute, no?! xD
Those final words "Dad, I'll kill you!" oh Chiaki-san~~

Also, while I did find Chiaki's singing embarrassment amusing, Marika has no business doing a singing spot in a dress. She's a pirate, not a idol. It sort of cheapens her as a character in my eyes.
It also took a huge step back by making the antagonist out to be some prissy princess with a mean streak and ironbeard out to be some overbearing royal bodyguard/babysitter.
That's just great, pirates are fighting and being knocked off by a bitchy and bored princess with an overpowered space battlecruiser. Way to make the arc filled with pirate ships being destroyed a serious story, NOT.
Made me wonder what they did the previous occasion they had to convene the council to go to war albeit having the pirate captain sing that song with a friend might be a mite more embarassing than what Marika went through (not I didn't mention Chiaki because I can't see her being more embarassed!!!)
As for the overpowered space cruiser in the hands of a princess, yes but I suspect this is to teach her an important lesson in character she comes across as if she didn't have someone they could rely on to help her get over her oversight she might either get herself killed against someone whose a true threat to the Empire or when she assumes the throne she'll cause the downfall of the Empire since I'm comparing how different she is with Grunier whose to say Marika's dad didn't help her the same way and how things would have been different if Grunier hadn't gone to Marika for help?
The real important detail is if they can't trust anyone in the Empire to help her what does that say about the rest of the Empire?
Note what was being said as they were heading back to the Parabellum?
It sounds like things aren't great at all in the Empire and it might mean if this gets a second season we get to find out what else is going on in addition to Jenni's uncle being involved in sedition...
Given Chiaki's dad mentioned they aren't really on the beaten track as far as the Empire's concerned makes me think that even with their outdated ships they're still a potent force and the fact marika goes to a school where they're actually being trained using a former pirate ship makes me think they're being prepared in case of another war...
Problem is it's quite difficult to survive in space when you're spaceship gets destroyed and she destroyed quite a few of them. And by having her be protected she'll probably only walk away with a dent in her pride.
