Thoughts/Review:

Man, its been a long time since I read the story this episode was based from in the manga. I don’t remember much other than I think Natsumi gets a battle suit.  We’ll see.

As to the story itself, no humor and the action stuff is OK, I guess.  I’m probably not as hyped over things because (1) I haven’t been really hyped over the anime of late and (2) I already knew the story.

Its weird how the anime goes from two short stories per episode to now needing two episodes in order to get the whole story told. Its not a problem, but it did strike me as amusing for some reason.

Well, I may not be that enthused about things, but it really wasn’t a bad episode. In addition, I’m kinda interested in seeing (and remembering) how things ended.

    Ah, so this is the infamous rival Keroro platoon arc that was kinda epic in the manga version. It reminded us (the audience) that Kero’s group was sent there to do the task of taking over Earth and this is the result of them failing to do so. I liked this arc mainly because it gave the mecha suit Natsumi got in the earlier episodes have a real purpose and it did a good job of introducing a real threat in the otherwise day-to-day comedy of the series.

    I really do need to reread the manga sometime down the road (for some reason, I’m rereading Fairy Tail). I agree though that in the manga, the story was quite good and did remind the audience of why Keroro and company were supposed to be there. Plus, I seem to recall the other platoon making a return trip at some point, but I could be mistaken.
