Petite Princess Yucie: Episode 18 Commentary

Blazing Souls of Stewards! Save Balizan

Collage of Petite Princess Yucie screenshots.

Balizan needs a software upgrade. He takes too long to calculate the probability of impact by objects falling right at him.

I enjoyed Cube giving advice and Elmina thanking him for it, as it’s not very often that the stewards interact with the other girls. This isn’t the first time, however, as Glenda’s had some issues with Chawoo, and Elmina did explain to Cube and Mr. Gaga about the lizard’s ability to repel their magic potion attack.

Lord Drago says Balizan was built with the sky world’s latest technology. The latest out of the sky world? Slow math and distance processing, and no protection for butterfly scales. I’m not complaining. That’s far beyond anything out of the other worlds shown. Somehow I doubt the spirit world will have a technological edge over the sky world.

As Mr. Gaga acknowledges, Cube is improving as a steward. Now if only he could get a little more screen time. I might have to re-watch some early episodes to see him in action again.

More screen time for Belbel is always a good thing, yes. She finally gets her “main character in an episode” debut. Belbel’s quite the poet when she thinks her life is at its end.

Nothing says “Sky World’s Latest, Greatest Technology” like a pixy-sized security Balizan wielding his fierce and mighty…slingshot. Go Heaven!

Well, Beth gave the trust thing a try. Too soon for her. She still has a few more episodes before the series starts wrapping up.

I only noticed in this episode, a sky world resident’s wings are full-sized when they are a child.

I would like to know more about Chawoo. He definitely feels the heat from the fire, but can pass through objects. Not that the two are the same.

In the water, Belbel is flapping her wings rapidly. Maybe to help stay up or stay in place? The fairies seem to be able to move through the air just fine without much use of their wings, at least for slow flights.

As Mr. Gaga tells again about his over one thousand years of experience as a steward, I once more wonder if he remembers anything about the Eternal Tiara and its wish from a millennium ago. Gosh, a millennium… That’s…a long time. So, did he serve as steward for Glenda’s mother? Grandmother? Just how long do the members of Glenda’s family live? What about Cube? Mr. Gaga may very well be a different race than Glenda and Cube are.

It turns out the technology in Balizan can withstand butterfly scales. Silly Lord Drago.

A steward episode is a good thing. Too bad this is the only one there’s time for. Hopefully the stewards don’t vanish from the story now that they’ve had their time in the spotlight. Especially Belbel. She’s too adorable to not show up again. With her always at Beth’s side, of course, she’s sure to turn up again at least a few more times.

All in all, I feel bad that Belbel turned up in only two of my screenshots, but I wanted to give Balizan some images as well. A few of Belbel, as well as a close-up of Elmina after Balizan breaks down had to be trimmed out to make my limit of nine (which is typical, with most of my collages beginning with 18 to 32 images before I trim it down to nine).
