「カエデの時間」 (Kaede no Jikan)
Just like I guessed last week, things got pretty serious pretty quickly.
Calm Before The Storm
Starting the episode out with some charm and a little bit of wit, I thoroughly enjoyed watching Kaede get some well deserved screen time. Not only because she’s typically working behind the scenes, but I nearly died laughing when I realized she wouldn’t be able to go through with the plan. Because as impressive as constructing a giant edible pudding is, having the heart to blow your masterpiece up is something I don’t think even Nagisa has. Luckily (or unluckily?), Koro-sensei was able to smell the bomb at the bottom and instead of getting showered with anti-sensei pellets and pudding bits, everyone got to have a taste of their creation. Overall, not too bad of an outcome if I do say so myself! It makes you wonder though, just how crazy of an assassination plan could Kaede construct if she put her whole being into it? Because if this smile is any indication, it looks like she’s ready for another try.
As I opened the post with, it looks like things are taking a turn for the worst as the enemy (I’m using that term lightly) is busting out all the stops only two episodes in. From framing Koro-sensei into a crime that he could conceivably commit and ruining his image with the whole class in order to bait him into a trap, it looks like they’re going for broke by even throwing an upgraded Itona into the mix. Something I didn’t necessarily see coming, but I guess isn’t too crazy when you think about the intense training the class was going through right before that cliffhanger. I mean, compared to what they were doing one semester ago, they were free running through a forest with a highly trained soldier trying to bring them down! In any case, I can’t wait to see what happens.
After a slow start last week, things have been kicked into full gear with Koro-sensei already duking it out with his half brother Itona. While it remains to be seen what other traps are hidden within the anti-sensei barrier, it feels like just about that time when Koro-sensei reveals another one of his hidden talent. Anyways, I’ll catch you guys next week when we hopefully get to see Itona get the crap kicked out of him and maybe integrated into the class. See you!
