Kandy Crisis #12: Fighting Talk, which stars Diva, is now available for purchase.
Review by Sidekick
Before we get into the episode, a quick refresher of the events that brought us to this point.
In Kandy Crisis #11, maybe the best episode of the series, AJ took on the moniker of the “Blonde Bayonet” in order to take part in a fighting contest.
Unfortunately for AJ, fans of the series got to vote on which one of the two endings that were shot would be story canon. Spoiler Alert: The vote did not go AJ’s way and she was carried off unconscious over the shoulder of an absolutely ripped female opponent.
Kandy Crisis 12 picks up sometime after that and we find Diva has gone undercover as a reporter to hopefully figure out what happened to AJ. And to be as inconspicuous as possible, she goes undercover in a skin tight silver catsuit. Sure. Why not? She looks great. That’s all that matters.
Anyway, Diva is informed that AJ is being passed around, and presumably forced to fight. Diva’s contact informs her that in order to find AJ, she’ll have to follow (and fight) the chain of AJ’s opponents.
Diva’s contact can help her get into the action, but first she needs to create a moniker of her own, and she chooses Cosplay-Girl. And in a nice little nod to NGC, she picks the outfits of Bluebird and Athena to fight in.
As far as the action, I have to avoid any forays into deep spoiler territory. I think what I can tell you is that Diva fights two opponents in this episode. One male, one female.
I think the best way to describe the totality of the fights is that they’re each 75/25. That is to say that in one battle Diva gets beaten on about 75% of the time. In the other, she controls the action about 75% of the time.
In one fight, she is put in leg scissors from behind, put in a reverse choke, slapped in a full nelson, shoulder blocked into the gut several times, choked with the ring ropes, and is knocked out with a double-handed punch and is then pinned for a 3 count.
In the other, Diva takes several stomach punches and some shots to the face, but it’s not long before she takes the advantage and prevails.
One thing I wanted to point is that this episode was tremendously funny. Especially the opening scene. There’s also a hilarious part where some shade is thrown at Bluebird that made me laugh out loud. It concerns Bluebird’s super power of getting trounced on a regular basis.
The episode is just a nice pickup from where we left off. It’s straightforward and there weren’t any earth shattering twists, but it worked well and left me wanting to see more, which I know we will.
As far as the lead, Diva really does seem to up her game for this series. If you haven’t seen Episode 8 of Kandy Crisis, I would highly recommend you give it a chance. I think it’s one of the best of the entire run, and really demonstrated what Diva was capable of as an actress.
Kandy Crisis 12 ends with a “TO BE CONTINUED.” I don’t know how far down the road that will be, but we’ll keep you updated as always. I couldn’t be happier this series is back.
