A lot of posturing in this episode, as all the pieces gather and the second game between Beatrice and Battler begins to take shape.
Unfortunately, this episode was a little lighter on the gags, and also light on Mii-chan as well, so it wasn’t quite as enjoyable as the first four eps. Still, even though it focused more on Fumin, who I don’t particularly have strong feelings one way or the other for, it had its moments. Like Mii-chan mizugi action! (cue Edogawa going crazy… or not?)
This is not a fair question to ask. But the answer is always yes, right? What? Not tonight? Nooooo!!! Horo, you tease!!!
There’s not a whole lot to say about the episode besides a recounting of the events. Compared to the first arc, the first episode of the second arc takes it’s time and focuses on providing some character development for Shannon, Jessica and to a lesser degree, Kanon and George.
I laughed and facepalmed at Lawrence referring to Horo as "cargo." I suppose it was a cute way for him to avoid mentioning his feelings for Horo directly. Otherwise, the lack of Horo continued in this episode – and I think I’m suffering from Horo deficiency – but it was an important episode, because Lawrence finally realizes his answer to a very important question.
We get a confession! It’s not as edgy as Senjougahara’s. And maybe it doesn’t stick. But I have to admit my heart skipped a beat anyway.
I’ve been bummed by the initial fall release schedule. Besides Railgun, there wasn’t one other show that seemed interesting, but I couldn’t help but feel a twinge of deja vu. Because I know I said the same thing on a few blogs back when the summer preview was doing the rounds. I think back then, there were only two shows that piqued my interest, and you could argue that both were sequels: Umineko and Spice and Wolf 2. But as it turns out, like Low on Hit Points has mentioned, the summer season has been excellent. I can’t remember a season in which there’s been so many shows that I’d consider scoring an 8-10.
