After the bombshell at the end of last week’s episode, it looks like we’ll have to wait one more week until we find out just what secrets are hiding down in the second basement.
It’s Pool Time!
Taking a step back from the huge reveal of some type of evacuation shelter in a hidden second basement, our girls instead headed straight to the roof for some fun times under the bright orange sun. Under the guise of cleaning the “school pool”, everyone got a chance to don their new swimsuits as they spent the day goofing around with all sorts of water based activities. Which in the grand scheme of things was probably just as important as discovering that emergency evacuation manual. Because even though our group is on the verge of finding answers to questions they’ve probably been wondering about since day one, it’s probably a blessing in disguise that they didn’t immediately leap into action.
Ignoring the fact that it’s deep in zombie territory, it probably wouldn’t help that they’d all be mentally and physically exhausted from the shock of it all. Toss in the fact that only two out of the four girls (Kurumi and Miki) are probably ready to “kill” a zombie and it should be clear as day that heading straight to the hidden area would have been a bad idea.
That said, even I can’t help ponder just why Megu-nee would keep such an important thing a secret from everyone. And even with the cynic in me wanting to think bad thoughts, I think it boils down to something really simple – she probably just forgot about it. As a simple teacher, I doubt she was informed about any incoming pandemics and honestly how often do you remember your teacher back in primary and secondary school actually referring to the emergency manual? And let’s not forget that a freaking zombie apocalypse is currently surrounding them and the stress trying to imagine that reality would be enough to make anyone forget about anything that wasn’t immediately in front of them.
So even though it feels like Rii-san and to an extent Miki are erring on the cynical side, I want to believe that Megu-nee always had her girls’ best interest at heart.
Taroumaru and Miki
I don’t normally notice things like deathflags, but I can’t help but think that Taroumaru is going to end of becoming zombie chow soon. Besides the fact he’s constantly getting into sticky situations and even sometimes causing them, the last straw had to be him forgiving Miki for what happened at the mall. I mean, why would the show drop such a long running gag unless it had some specific reason to!? I hope nothing bad happens to Taroumaru.
With the story quickly progressing forward, I’m not sure I’m liking exactly where we’re headed. There’s talks of an experiment going awry, people second guessing the leader they had in-charge, and really depressing shots of someone who I’d wish was either completely alive or one hundred percent dead and not moving. In any case, here’s to hoping that next week’s episode isn’t completely depressing and/or sad.
Thanks for reading the post and I hope to catch you around for the rest of the season! On a side note, please refrain from posting spoilers in the comments. Not only are you ruining someone’s experiences, but because this is an adaptation, it’s possible you could be spreading misinformation! So, please abuse that spoiler tag and if you want to talk about anything related to this anime or if you wanted to ask me something specific, shoot me a tweet @rctakaii!
See you next week!
P.S. Did you notice that the ending reverted back to the previous one? And that Taroumaru was the only one walking along the shore? ;_;
P.P.S. I found it really, really funny that Yuuri / Rii-san knew exactly what it takes to become a sorceress. Haha.
