After having gotten herself incredibly worked up over some pudding, Ascoeur finally gets her chance to eat it. Unfortunately, Q-feuille sneezes and causes a chain reaction that leads to the pudding spilling all over the floor. Determined to get some pudding, Ascoeur decides to raid the cafe kitchen, but to get there during the after-hours, she and Q-feuille have to overcome the security system upgrades that Tweedledee made. Q-feuille’s expertise and memory helps them get through most of the traps, but they are eventually faced with an army of Tweedledee dolls that soon overwhelm them. Q-feuille sacrifices herself so that Ascoeur can go ahead, but Ascoeur ends up tripping and falling into another trap. By the time the girls finally reach the kitchen, it’s already daytime, and the puddings have all been consumed.
This ED isn’t that great, but it’s better than the Ascoeur version for the simple reason that it’s not sung by Ascoeur. I’m also still waiting for them to do something about the OP since it still just shows scenes from the episodes instead of regular opening sequence. Maybe they’re hiding the fact that Eclair and Lumiere come back or something.
I’ve been rather busy recently and didn’t get a chance to watch this episode until now, but I had heard from multiple people that it was awful and that I should set my expectations really low. After watching it, I didn’t think the episode was that bad, as long as you didn’t expect anything to happen in the plot (which I’m quickly learning not to). The pudding thing was really, really stupid, but around that there were a ton of jokes and internet memes, and some of them were surprisingly hilarious. In fact, the whole Hokuto no Ken scene made me wish that Ascoeur stayed in her male voice for the rest of the episode. Q-feuille also had a bigger part in this episode, and that was great because it meant less of Ascoeur. All in all, I think I actually liked this episode more than the first one, but as I mentioned, that’s partially because I’ve adjusted my expectations. I’m still hoping that there’s some plot eventually though – assuming I can stick with this series for that long.
