Even a rival has a role to play.
As things begin to wind up so they can wind down, several questions remain. Such as if having Galala and Falala awake at the same time is even possible, and what that means for the future of idols. After consulting the all-knowing glasses, it turns out that both Yui and Shuuka have a role to play in their final showdown. Shuuka may have been a latecomer, but she has the closest connection to Galala of any of the main cast, something that she’s willing to put forward when it comes to preparing her fans for the performance.
Yui is Yui as always. She even got a bit of encouragement from her brother, sort of. I feel like this season hasn’t used the Boys’ PriPara to quite the extent I was thinking. Only Shougo has really felt like a major player in the events, and the episodes where the boys’ side of things affected the plot can be counted on one hand. It was a good effort, but perhaps that sort of thing should be left to King of Prism.
Oh, and I want to mention Yui’s eyes here before she uses her Making Drama. She goes from dream sparkles to dream rainbow whirlpool. Like she’s entered into some sort of dream-trance. That’s one thing I’m going to miss when Moriwaki leaves. The decisions this show could make were at times bizarre, but always made sense on its own sort of internal logic. Where reality was flexible and the power of dreams and friendship were the strongest forces of all.
Yui wins, of course, because she’s the protagonist. But even the main heroine couldn’t locate the third pair of glasses… but it turns out that the yeti that’s been roaming around Paparajuku had them the whole time. I’ve been watching LWA on Netflix, so the idea of a yeti not only being up to date on modern conveniences, but using them in a funny/important way to the plot has come up twice in the past few days. It also turns out that Powan is meant to be the holder of the key that will introduce the next major plot element.
“Time” has been a motif since the beginning this season, and we’ve had stadiums in the sky and other such oddities before, but now PriPara is getting into one of the more volatile areas of storytelling, if only because the consequences of it can ripple across decades. Are Yui, Nino and Michiru up to the task? They’ll be doing it without Lala, though she doesn’t have any experience with it either.
I’m talking about time travel.
My Dream goes back to the dawn of time to see if they can set things right. Was this meant to be part of the system?
