As expected, this episode turns out to be a humorous episode after the resolutions of SHUFFLE! 21.
Everything seems to be back to normal and in the mood of the first few episode of Shuffle!, with Asa doing her usual “greeting” to Rin :) not to mention half the school as well too ^_-. Rin should really find a nice chiropracter, at the rate he’s going, he’s not going to need osteoporosis to cause backbone bend :P.
As for Sia, it seems that she’s not giving up yet on Rin, and with the help of Kikyou(-sama!!!) tries to seduce Rin back to the
Dark… err… her side :). I’m glad to see that her chair-throwing jutsu’s haven’t gone rusty yet, lol. Oh, and really, Shin-chan shouldn’t be messing around with her, HAHA.
Nerine, on the other hand, seems to have given up on Rin, and now decides to pursue other activities, like joining the singing club and dressing up as her mom. It’s really funny to see her in the *meido* uniform, which undoubtably are hand-me-downs from her mom. I almost had a nosebleed on seeing her in that :P. But she really has a nice potential to become a meido.
Primula too, stole the spotlights this episode, with her nekomimi meido outfit which would undoubtably induce nosebleeds in a certain someone. I’d almost had one too, with those twitching ears and swinging tail. She’s also developing a nice relationship with Kaede too hinthint. But really, her most spotlight stealing part was during the party, where she nicely gave levitation lessons to Kikyou and froze poor Shin-chan…. kakkoiii~~!!!
Kaede seems to have somewhat recovered from the emotional shock of the last episodes, but her love towards Rin is still evident, when she breaks down when saying goodbye to Rin. Other than that, she seems to be back to normal and (unfortunately) back to her “wallflower” status :(. Well, at least she’s now got a kawaii imouto :).
Itsuki and Mayumi prove to be the best comedy relief as usual, with Itsuki’s ambition of a harem possible now (according to him) , however he pisses off Mayumi and gets a nice taste of Mayumi’s Spinning Punch attack.
However, the episode ends on a more darker tone, when Rin, on the verge of kissing Asa, suddenly finds her collapsing. It seems that Asa’s story is going to be in, and the next episode focuses on Ama’s past.
