Well my internet went out right while I was watching the video, so I guess I'll post this talkback tomorrow. I didn't actually get to finish it. It crapped out right as the spies were talking to Jerry after the mission.

First big thing to note was that the auto-translation for the subtitles was absolute shit for this episode. It seemed OK for Part I, but it was off the rails for this episode, translating the villain's name as "King Money," "Sam, Alex, Clover" as Sarah McLaughlin, and A+ to "apple capital attack."

So yeah, I'm going to need to watch this again at some point since that obviously affected my viewing experience.

I did like this episode though because there was a lot of Mandy, and when there is a lot of Mandy, I'm happy. Xd My favorite part of the episode was probably the Monona Vogue parody with Mandy doing dance moves by moving her hands and arms around.

Like the previous episode, violence was at a bare minimum, so it was more of a series of chase scenes than fighting. That's understandable given what this episode was made for, and I don't think it will reflect on Season 6 as a whole.

I did, however, like the Versailles statue gollums. They were pretty cool. I thought the fight scenes were still entertaining, although they obviously had to be limited. I also liked the bean that grows into a tree gadget.

I loved the part about Mandy thinking she was Marie Antoinette. It was perfect. Unfortunately, the dialogue got put through a blender so I wasn't able to get many of the jokes with her being in character as her. I also have to say if Mandy is Marie Antoinette, then Sam should be Lady Oscar. z03.gif Of course, there should be a different ending here for this version Rose of Versailles. x_X

Other weird stuff, I'm pretty sure Plunkett references Al-Queada at one point, and Clover mentions Windows 8. Am I right? I really hope those are able to make it into the English version.

As for fanservice/subtext, I did notice a couple bits. Alex blushes strangely as she straddles the fish statue and it starts vibrating and moving. Pretty nice. a09.gif Also, Sam appears to be very concerned again about Mandy's safety, much more so than her partners, which is in line with Sam/Mandy fanon. Sam also seems glad when Mandy is back to normal again. Sam-icon.png heart1.gif Mandy-icon.png

It was also nice I think that Trent factored in very little here at all, so we got more Mandy!

Over all, I liked watching it, but it's obvious they are holding back a bit due to it being produced for the Palace. Still, lots of Mandy looking very cute in a themed costume will make me enjoy anything!

Edit: Finished the episode. Only additional comment is that Trent needs to get his hand the fuck off Mandy's hand! mad.gif

TOP LEL I CALLED IT
I mentioned to Justin in a PM when I first saw this ep that'd you'd pick right up on that Alex statue bit first time through. This show. XD

I actually haven't tried google translating the subs for this, so I really am curious about the Al Quiada and Windows 8. Maybe googles drunk.

Yeah I can't wait for this ep in English to see Jen Hale cut loose with Mandy.

How could anyone not notice this? She was totally feeling the vibration there for a moment. If only this scene went on longer. whistle.gif

Al Queda and Windows 8 are also in the French subs. So I guess those may really be in there. Did Justin do those?

I think Plunkett thinks they have been abducted by Al-Queda. LOL.

I think the auto translation for part I was came from Justin's French subs that he transcribed himself. He has yet to do that for part II I think, so the auto translation was probably translated from the French auto-caption which is ALWAYS off lol

Anyway, did you guys see Alex stick the key up the statue's butt? Hahaha
