「問題児たちがお祭り騒ぎに参加するようですよ？」 (Mondai-Ji-tachi ga Omatsurisawagi ni Sanka Suru You Desu yo?)
“Looks Like the Problem Children are Participating in a Festival?”
I love this show. It has everything. From unflippable skirts to fast-paced combat, from heart-warming friendship to adorable ships, you name it. Everything. Yes, crêpes too! Oh and apparently trio combos for comedy! I always like it when a show decides to add in a random new element to keep things fresh rather than trying to continuously fall back on the same old jokes.
Speaking of jokes, there’s no better way to run with one than turning a joke character into a terrifying joke character. I’ve always liked Kurousagi, but seeing her turn berserk when a little joke got out of hand was certainly a lot of fun! Her capture antics and wonderful expressions aside, the showdown between her and Izayoi was spectacular. They seem to be pretty evenly matched both in terms of strength and cunning which is a huge surprise given how overpowered Izayoi has been so far (I would hazard a guess he’s holding back). I can ship those two right? They’re a pretty damn adorable couple! It’s kind of refreshing to have this kind of cast without the atmosphere of a harem – there don’t seem to be any hints towards attraction from the others in the group.
I’ll admit that I was a little disappointed the letter wasn’t a newcomer from another world. I’d kind of hoped for a rival other-worlder to stand toe to toe with Izayoi. But I guess Kurousagi is the next best thing and the event does give us an awesome pretext for a change of scenery. And I certainly love the different aesthetics seen across the Little Garden so far! It’s always enjoyable to see these kinds of fantasy towns and cities, their inhabitants too! On top of that we should be getting properly introduced to another new community next week!
It would seem as though Izayoi’s plan to spread their reputation is working quite well given that they already have a request from a floor master. Reputation truly is a powerful thing, especially when you have a reputation for doing something crazy that no-one else would even consider doing! Or in the case of floor masters, are supposed to do but don’t actually want to! At any rate, hopefully we’ll find out more about Salamandra and whatever request this floor master might have next week! Here’s to hoping for another great episode!
tl;dr: @MoombaDS – Unflippable skirts, ships, and a joke gone too far! #Mondaiji
- I can certainly imagine a world in which no-one can disobey would be boring for Asuka. What makes people interesting to interact with is their free will and the conflicts that arise from meetings!
- Poor Jin… maybe…
- I wish I could travel ~980,000km that quickly!
- Hopefully we’ll learn much more about the worlds our trio came from as time passes!
- I’m not sure whether to be surprised or not at seeing Izayoi try to do something nice for Asuka, even if it does come with benefits for him and the community.
- Oh Izayoi, is there anything you can take seriously?
Random aside: I released an awesome eight track sci-fi electronic video-game-inspired album! You should listen to it, buy it, and spread the word or something!
