Normally filler, fan servicey episodes like this get a deserved bad rap, but damn I find it hard to hate too much on Plunderer’s latest escapade. Hina going full touch me feel me? Lynn instigating—and losing—the battle of the hips? And Jail, bless his soul, finding some time to enjoy the antics? Hell we even got Sunohara in on the action, even if only from a distance. Junk food is crap for obvious reasons, but it’s hard feeling too bad when it tastes so good. At least until you look at the calorie count.
Considering this week was more or less filler, there’s not really much to chew upon. Nana got the reconciliation and acknowledgement she deserved, while Licht finally revealed why masks remained his shtick through the ages. We also learned that Hina makes for one hell of a drunk—and has no qualms about making her dissatisfaction felt. Trust me, that’s not a face you want to piss off (*reminisces in tipsy ex-girlfriend*). For all the points Hina gained though Lynn still is my number one, because adorable wholesomeness is always a winner no matter the situation. Extra padding or not, even the boys secretly know it.
The most interesting aspect, however, will be next week, because one: Doan looks ready to make his reappearance alongside Schmerman and the rest of the military; and two: Hina’s mother just (re)entered the picture. No clue what Tsukina Farrow means to Licht right now (the last name is not immediately placeable), but you can bet your grumpy washboard her family is well-known to our albino voyeur. Best stay tuned boys and girls, for looks like more Alcia-relevant answers are on their merry way.
