Next Global Crisis is back with another Side Mission video, which features a fight between Sebastian Lunar, one of the genre’s best villains, and in my opinion the best new character introduced in season 2, Erica Lynne. Check out the stills, and my review, below.
Review by Sidekick
I was a broken man when Suki Deluxe was killed off, for no other reason than her death destroyed my hot-girl holy trinity of Bluebird, Angel and Suki. However, I feel quite comfortable that Erica Lynn can slide into that third spot. That woman is just insanely good looking.
The episode itself opens up with Sebastian giving an interview and talking about his “rehabilitation.” Erica soon intervenes and informs the public that Red Mist is not the altruistic group they claim to be. Sebastian hits Erica with a head butt and a knee lift and the action commences.
This fight itself is not all that heavy on peril. The advantage swings back and forth several times. Sebastian uses moves such as stomach punches, a back breaker and a reverse-bearhug to gain an advantage. However, Sebastian never quite catches on to the fact that Erica can duplicate herself and this ultimately leads to trouble for Mr. Lunar.
I enjoyed this episode—not just because it involved two of my favorite characters—but because it advanced the story. It was time for somebody from Elite Force to make a stand and attempt to inform the public about the danger presented by Red Mist. Erica did just that, and Sebastian’s actions in front of the cameras are not going to endear him to the Red Mist hierarchy.
One more thing, and then a question for the producers. First, I thought the photos that accompanied this release were top notch! They include some awesome stills of Erica and a great shot of Athena from a future episode. I don’t think I have ever covered the extras that come with these NGC films, but I thought these particular photos were too good to ignore.
As far as my question: Where the heck is Bluebird? I think we all need some more Claire Yellowless in our lives. Just my opinion.
