Another Miki-centric episode. They’re always the best because she gets herself into a situation, then kicks ass once she gets out of it.
Deathdark tries a different approach this week. Their newest Mozu, Mimizuku Mozu, lives within a picture book about woodland animals. Mazurka gives this book away for free.
See, Mazurka can be good too!
I mean, look, it’s a book about forest animals!
Whenever the children get to the page with Mimizuku on it, they are sucked up into the book, to be locked away forever. Deathdark’s reasoning is the parents of the children will bow down and do whatever they ask.
Akane acquires one of the books for her friend Osamu, who is sick in the hospital. Upon learning that the books related to the children disappearing, Akane has Miki rush to the hospital, where she is sucked up into the book. This delights Deathdark as they reason that by burning the book, Miki will die and the team will be defeated (though they could just get a new Goggle Pink, but whatever). They throw the book into the fire of Hell itself, a fire that cannot be extinguished. To keep Miki trapped, Mimizuku traps her in a cage. Miki finally puts two and two together and figures out the picture of the owl is what traps her in the book and so destroys it and the book, thus freeing herself. She then proceeds to give Deathgiller a stern talking to about harassing innocent children. Then she kicks ass.
