This week’s director is Akitaro Daichi, the director of Gag Manga Biyori for those unfamiliar with his name. Does that explain much already?
Now, in the time I’ve spent watching anime (three years, give or take), I’ve seen plenty of ping pong games. Games that have battle auras. Games that have balls going down into cleavage. (That one’s a favorite.) But for as long as I live, I may never see a ping pong game to top this one. It was 2001: A Ping Pong Freaking Space Odyssey. It’s also the first scene you could literally set your watch to.
And this doesn’t even come close to describing the sheer madness of the whole episode. No joke. There’s amazing shit like Kaho (OH GOD YUKARIN) and the gay scenes. Also the most least clothed episode of the show so far. Not to mention the music accompaniment is amazingly awesome this week.
I am going to wait for a better source before I do another post on this. Because it deserves that much.
