「リーダーの時間」 (Riidaa no Jikan)
God, I love it whenever A Class tries to screw around with E class. Not only does it always fail to go their way, but there’s just something about seeing all of their smug faces turn sour that makes me feel extremely good inside.
Isogai Is An Ikem.. Leader!
Seeing how each episode is still focusing on fleshing out an individual character or diving into their personal struggles, this week’s placed the spotlight on good looking Isogai. He’s the class representative with the charm of a prince and the knife skills of a pro CS:GO player. His only major issue would probably be his family’s finances, but even that can’t stop the ikemen of E Class.
But what good’s a character without some real concrete flaws? In Isogai’s case, it looks like his stem around the stress and pressure that comes with being a leader (something that I was a little confused about since I don’t think we’ve seen him actually lead any missions thus far?). Which in the grand scheme of things is pretty huge since the overarching goal of everyone is to take out Koro-sensei being he obliterates the world. I mean, can you even imagine how much stress that would put on someone?
Luckily for Isogai, he believes in a hybrid style of leadership. Not one to micromanage his friends to death, he’s the type of guy who will setup a plan and let the pieces fall into place based on everyone else’s skills. A style that not only allows for hiccups in the plan, but uses the element of surprise in its favor!
All-in-all, it looks like E class has a competent leader who will hopefully be able to take down Koro-sensei in the future.
You know, as much as I wanted to enjoy seeing Asano get struck down by the tenacious E class, I actually felt bad for the guy by the time the episode came to a close. His father is literally an overpowered monster that apparently has no weaknesses both mentally and physically. And by no weaknesses, I mean someone who has no issues abandoning anything that might hinder his chances of success. Then you have Asano, someone who seems like Principal 2.0 except one huge factor — he doesn’t seem like a complete dirtbag. Sure, he seems like someone who won’t tolerate anything besides perfection, but I doubt he’d go and beat the crap out of his subordinates.
If anything, I wouldn’t be all that surprised if Asano makes a paradigm shift somewhere down the line and warms up to E class and its style of handling things.
With each passing episode, it feels like the pacing is slowly starting to ramp up to where we were a few episodes ago. Not that I think the episodes are going slow or anything, but I wouldn’t mind something big happening. Anyways, I’ll catch you guys next week where we’ll once again watch our favorite bunch of misfits do their thing as they try to take out a giant octopus. See you!
