In episode four of the anime Undead Unluck, the characters find themselves in an intense confrontation at Lake Baikal. The villainous Gina has lured protagonists Andy and Fuuko to the lake, hoping to eliminate Fuuko and win back Andy’s affections. That is the reason why it is gonna be so interesting to find out what is going to happen next in the upcoming Undead Unluck Episode 5.
We learn that Gina and Andy have a history – she imprisoned him 40 years ago after fairly defeating him in battle. Though initially upset about his capture, Andy came to respect Gina’s strength. This admiration caused Gina to develop romantic feelings for Andy over the years of his imprisonment.
Now free, Andy is nonchalant about the past, interested only in having a rematch with Gina to test his skills. Gina is bitter that their ally Shen met Andy first upon his release and is eager to get Fuuko out of the picture so she can have Andy to herself. As the anticipated fight begins, Andy calmly analyzes Gina’s abilities while dodging her attacks. He reveals to Fuuko that his old war comrades have died over the years.
Recap and Review
The truth is revealed that Gina was behind the earlier attempt on their lives, confirming she wants Fuuko dead. Her motivations are a toxic mixture of jealousy over Fuuko’s closeness with Andy and obsessive love for him. The stage is set for an intense battle between the controversial lovers Gina and Andy, with Fuuko caught in the middle. What will happen next remains to be seen.
The battle intensifies as Andy vows to protect Fuuko, even if it costs him his life. This enrages Gina, who is determined to decapitate Andy and force him to be by her side forever. Andy analyzes Gina’s abilities, identifying her power to negate any change in an object’s form, dubbing it “Unchanged.”
To gain an advantage, Andy uses his own techniques to cover the area in blood. He then uses Fuuko’s body to generate massive unluck energy to aid him against Gina. Though shocked by Fuuko’s lewd behavior, a smug Gina brags about her unchanging appearance.
Andy continues studying Gina’s skills, frustrating her with the bizarre positions he and Fuuko contort into. The pair then bump into an invisible barrier Gina had cast over the lake. She reveals she came to investigate a monster sighting but has now focused on eliminating Fuuko.
After debating perspectives on change, Andy and Fuuko devise a clever plan and use it to defeat Gina. Fuuko tries convincing Andy to spare Gina, but he says she doesn’t have much time left. Reflecting on her Union life and inspired by Fuuko’s painting, Gina realizes change may not be so bad after all. She tells them to leave as their seats are now secured. Andy tightly embraces Gina as the chapter closes on her unknown fate.
With the thrilling battle against Gina now over, Andy and Fuuko seem to have solidified their positions among the Union’s elite Negators. This episode balanced enjoyable action sequences with the series’ signature raunchy humor, which some will find more appealing than others.
Spoilers and Expectations
Beyond the fights and fanservice, the narrative explores the concept of change while also providing interesting character development for villain Gina. The writers try to draw out some empathy for Gina in her final moments as she reflects on life and ponders embracing change.
However, the attempt to humanize Gina might have landed better if the show dedicated another chapter to flashbacks of her time in the Union. While her verbal disdain for the organization comes through, actually seeing those experiences dramatized could have made her change of heart more impactful.
Overall, fans got some solid fights and humor out of this episode, along with food for thought on change. More backstory on Gina’s Union days would have enhanced her redemption arc, but we can be satisfied for now, having secured our heroes’ status among the Negators.
