Episode 10

Aria has been put out of commission with her latest case, while Nonoka is going blind. That girl who had been working with Riko is Kyochikutou, who specializes in making poison. Akari's power is revealed as a secret killing technique that is designed to poison others without leaving a scratch, and it was passed down from ancestors. One day two years ago Kyochikutou burned the Mamiya village and poisoned Nonoka with something that takes her eye sight away in two years, and only she can cure it. It's no wonder Kyochikutou had been following Akari all this time seeing that she wants her technique, but of course Akari has her friends backing her up. And thus, Operation AA begins. That was really revealing about Akari there, and everything is starting to fall into place after this big reveal.

First serious episode in awhile or perhaps the actual first one...

So we find out more about Akari and Momoka. About time. Kyochikutou is a weird girl, even her name has a bad vibe to it. I really wonder how they will wrap this up in just a few more episodes though? This feel rushed.

To quote Akari:

Episode 10

Aria comes out injured in her latest mission and Kyochikutou reveals that IU is the one responsible for the attack. Kyochikutou tells Akari that she is after one of the members of the Mamiya clan and their secret posion that is passed down to the oldest sibling and that she poison her sister and if she wants the cure to come to her room. after this Nonoka comes to the hospital where Aria is staying and Akari gives her money so that she can leave to their aunts but she faints in her arms. turns out the poison is taking effect on her and she losing her senses one by one and if she loses all five than death will be the last thing. Akari has no choice but to give herself to Kyochikutou for the cure but Aria comes in and stops her. Aria tells that if she knew that IU was after her this whole time they could've been working together and that if she needs help she has her friends to help her. so operation double AA begins. next episode looks like Akari is having a hard time and she might use her ultimate technique.

Episode 11

Operation AA is a go as Akari and Aria face off against Kyochikutou, who appears to be walking on air with the use of nanowires. She uses poison that enters the skin to make a fanservice object out of Fuma, to lock down Raika, abd to mess with Urara's mind. A place is created for the final showdown, and she's not all poison as she has a hidden gatling gun to take out Shino that brings out the killer instinct out of Akari in the Mamiya technique. And the secret of the Takamakuri is revealed as it's not a poison, but it makes use of electrical impulses in the body to produce electricity. As it turns out, Kyochikutou is only a decoy, and her older sister is the real mastermind behind this operation. The action there is decent, but I just felt that things happened too quickly here. One more episode to go as there's one more bad guy to arrest.

Episode 11

Feels like the writers just decided to throw everything into the episode at once with the action and Akari's abilities. Kyochikutou also has some weird abilities related to poison but whatever. The gatling gun part was almost funny to watch.

Akari's fighting skills showed this episode though.

That ending felt really rushed, like the writers wanted to introduce another antagonist at the end to take on the girls. I expect some rushed and maybe some heart to heart talk between Akari/Aria in the end.

Episode 11

pretty good episode Kyochikutou was a really tough opponent and was giving all the girls a hard time but in the end Akari was able to stop her. in the end Aria shows up claiming that Kyochikutou is not alone and we get introduced to Kyochikutou sister just like that. This episode felt to rush a lot of things was just put altogether just to finish up the season with the next episode. lets see how things turn out with Aria and Akari in the end??

Episode 12 (Finale)

What a psycho that Suimitsutou bitch is. But in the end, Aria came up with a brilliant plan to bring her down by binding her machine with the bridge's cables, blinding her with smoke, firing magnets to scramble her mecha's computers, and then shooting paint to get it to fall down. In the end, Aria decided that she won't be her Amica, but for much different reasons than at the beginning as it's due to compatibility and not for a lack of talent. Even so, Akari decides she wants to at least pass the gun-swiping exam, and she does just that even if she collapsed in the process. So in the end, they do become Amicas for a little while at the very least. That was a decent episode to end this show. Sure it was rushed as hell, but the action is nice while it all goes to show much can be gained through friendship.

Final Thoughts

I wasn't expecting much out of this show, and indeed it did have its fair share of problems seeing that the original series is full of them. The show was fun with the girls doing crazy things and the action is solid. The characters are a nice bunch, while the comedy is decent. The biggest problem with this show is that it crams in way too much fluff and not enough story, which leads to an ending that was rushed seeing that something big was hinted after the Quartet Exam, and the show pushes that aside for more silliness that wasn't intuitive to the story. That said, I like this better than the original as it has a better story concept and that the show does fewer things wrong, but that's all relatively speaking.

Grade: C (6/10)

Aria the Scarlet Ammo EP 24 / A Pair of As

For A spin-off it wast bad . It was silly at times with some og the Yuri Vibe but they akk were friends . Akari is quite powerful and like to see more of her if another Aria Comes Out . It was funny in the end mastermind / Riko was sitting across frim them . It seems that this was a set before the originsal as Riko fought her head -on then Suimitsutou was quite the Villian and the action was good !

Eh...

That was bad and rushed. They pretty much used a simple smokescreen and diversion tactic to win. Nothing really exciting. Apparently, we got some Aria vs. Akari in the end as well (was it just me or did they use footage from the preview). But yeah, this felt flat. I think even the original series was better.
