Qu’est-ce que c’est?
Sigh. Not even Kyouko’s safe from this show’s second season mangling her. At least she brings some new jokes and visual humor to the table, which is a welcome respite in the morass of how this entire bloody season of the show has been the same things repeated ad nauseam… plus one info dump episode… but I don’t like seeing her entire character reduced to A.) a joke, B.) showing up under the exceptionally weak premise of more infodumping… but not now… later… and C.) yet another character desperately slobbering over Ayumu’s
protagonistism dick for absolutely no goddamned reason. Even her psycho-side was wearing thin by the end of the episode since they were riding that joke so hard it won’t be able to walk straight for days.
And where was all this leading? The repeated end of episode foreshadowing, cliffhangers, etc? "I love you." "Okay, I won’t forget you." Uh. Great. We totally know that’s meaningful too because she it was not three seconds prior. How touching. Back to jail you go. Thanks for being a part of this season. I’m not sure how it could’ve existed without you. You too, Ayumu. Way to… show up. Good god, the only even vaguely notable thing he’s done all season is dance for a few seconds. Besides that, you could’ve… and probably should’ve… replaced him with the goddamned fan. At least then you’d have a character with a little depth. And let’s not forget that the last major thing he did in the previous season too was wish that everybody would screw off and not have their wishes come true.
