Birdy uses her pin-up alter ego to help Tsutomu make a love connection with Sayaka, but everything goes horribly wrong when a Federation marionette is added to the equation!
This is actually the 13th episode of the first season. It's both counted as separate, and as a part of the first season because it's more of a bridge between seasons one and two. As such, I reviewed this with the rest of the first season. However, to say a little more about this episode, and it being a bridge between the season... It really doesn't have that much to do with the second season, I think. Very misleading, as it's mostly about Nakasugi and Senkawa, and the second season doesn't focus on their relationship very much. Though, I actually enjoyed this episode more than I enjoyed the rest of the show. Not that there weren't parts of the show that I didn't enjoy as much, but this episode as a whole... I liked it.
