…. I have a nagging suspicion that’s not really your mother in your flashbacks, Mero.
Well, DEEN had to slip up somehow and it comes in the form of this week’s badly timed filler episode. We just had a pretty big cliffhanger last week and suddenly we’re watching three schoolgirls telling retarded stories about ramen and stalking art teachers that bring pet alligators to school? Really, not nice.
The only really relevant part was about Mero reminiscing about her mother and bonding a little with Sanka, but otherwise, I think this was an awkwardly timed and misplaced episode. Hell, even without the cliffhanger of last week… I think this would have been a pretty boring episode anyways.
Oh, and yes. This was mainly not on the manga. As far as I can remember of it. Definitely don’t remember the crazy teacher and ramen entrepreneurs.
