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.
