Snakes are snakey.
Really, Xebec? Really? You do a series gag for six episode… a month and a bloody half… and then forget it? I am disappointed in you. Go to your room, young man, and do not come out until Hanako escapes again. The episode was okay otherwise. Slightly full of montages though… and you know how I just love those. Also, for Kurusu getting a fight scene (calling it that is being charitable, given the animation there), I expected much better. Milky Holmes has set the bar for bears vs girls entirely too high and Xebec is not going to be the ones to do anything other than clothesline themselves on it.
This was another sort-of setup episode for the next school challenge. They sent a spy over to give us a recap of how every member of the club was weird, although I don’t remember voodoo being in Lizzie’s bag of tricks before. Apparently it’s big in England? I could see Cecilia weilding a rubber chicken-with-a-pulley-in-the-middle menacingly. After that was over, it was off on a trip with Misshi to the school in the mountains plus a stop at a natural hot springs along the way and bear fighting. They blew all their good water-based jokes in episode two or three.
And Hanako didn’t escape.
God damn it, Leo.
