Content: (please note that content portions of a review may contain spoilers)
This series has been a decent bit of silliness, such as the whole going to space thing the last time around, but it’s the quality of the animation that makes it a contender. Shorts usually go either simple and silly or really well animated with what they do. This series is managing its time well with a good bit of story in each and great animation. Continuing the time in space as the two make their way through the space station, booting it up again, it has a really neat feeling of something bigger than a lot of shorts give you. Null’s doing her best to get Peta back up and running again after she ran out of power while also trying to get a backup done before that so she doesn’t lose what she has so far. This gives us a little flashback time as she worries about really saving her sister, which is comical in how much her sister used to embarrass her at times in public.
There’s a lot to like with this episode just in getting some time through flashback with the original Peta that we’ve not seen much. It’s all leading to Null coping with the situation eventually but until then it’s mostly just a lot of fun and wacky situations. This one rounds out the space adventure in a way where yes, you will roll your eyes a bit, but the whole space excursion was essentially that eyeroll. It’s again a really well-animated episode with a great eye for detail and quality of animation that keeps me pretty enthused about it overall.
