Ah… Sunrise seems to be back in their best form with this episode. I greatly enjoyed this episode for the noticeble lack of Arika, thank god.
– Natsuki with the snake.
– Haruka and Yukino. To Yukino: Nice one !!! :thumbsup:
– Miyu’s appearance. Her coin throwing techniqure reminded me of Tatsumiya Mana from Negima.
Service aside, this episode was quite a shocker as well, for Aoi-chan (assumed) death. I didn’t expected her to be given the death treatment, and it was quite poignant as well, with her death well fitting in her character and I highly respected her for being loyal to the end. I guess this kinda makes Aoi the new Akane :p. We need more of her >.<. Mashiro has also quite suffered in this episode and I'm starting to like and feel sorry for her. Meanwhile, Arika seems to be as darn carefree as usual with the little cameo she had at the end. I sure hope they don't go use the "big-impact-caused-loss-of-memory" plot line. Next episode seems to have quite a lot of things going on, but we'll see. I'm still waiting for Mai to make her appearance and kick Arinko's ass. Oh, and the new black uniform seems pretty cool.
