If last week was Ryuuko’s episode, this week Maekawa takes the spot. Unfortunately she isn’t all that interesting at all compared to the rest, so I was mainly quite bored in the beginning. The latter half spiced things up a bit, but still didn’t feel like it had the energy of the previous weeks. Probably had to do with the utter lack of Meme’s appearances. Even Erio felt rather subdued this week.
At least there was a shot of twintail Erio to make up for it…
To add insult to injury, this week’s episode felt like it was outsourced 95% to Korea or Vietnam somewhere with off-model drawings everywhere, adding to the feeling that this was really a throwaway episode as they rest the main animators for the later episodes. Oh well, considering SHAFT, this is a pretty standard thing they do anyways.
The only interesting thing this week was probably Makoto finally giving proper adolescence points to all those “events”. I was about to label him gay if he gave negative points to the towel scene.
