Oh wait, a butterfly. That’s waaaaay more interesting.
Man… the ‘music’ at the start of this episode was like a drill grinding into my ears. Ow. Damn it, Zexcs. It also really says something definite about Yuuto that he has two women stripping and lesbianing it up, and gets distracted by a butterfly. Even more evidence that there are corkscrews straighter than him. And most have more of a personality too. The censorship this episode was also pretty hilarious. I have absolutely no idea why they felt the need to blot out Ageha kissing Yuuto. Maybe she has the same bright light herpies that’s also affecting her nipples.
I do approve of Himari’s new weaponry, but it would have been nice to see her actually use the scythe. The second third of the episode also dragged quite a bit with a huge chunk of exposition, complete with classic film sequence out of nowhere to review earlier parts of the episode. Yada yada, evil things coming, oh, here they are and they’re eating Himari’s breasts. How about making it a little surprise every now and then. SUDDENLY FLESH EATERS. The fun’s gone when you spend 5 minutes explaining what’s about to happen. It’s not even like they needed to save up any budget for that action scene either. It was okay, but compared to what this show normally does, certainly below average. The entire main cast just stood around gaping while Ageha and the Ippon-Dattara attacked. We could have skipped that whole explaination and jumped right to the breast chomping and bad metaphors about people being delicious that are required by law to accompany any scene where someone chews on another.
