How very Freudian.
Joshiraku’ll probably be a little late today. Broadcast is pushed back half an hour from its already late time and I have stuff I need to do around then.
My first thought as this episode began was "Why the hell are they on a helicopter pad on top of a building? Also, how bloody large is this building?" Seriously. I’m about 90% certain that last episode ended in the middle of a park. Or maybe a school’s track. That building could’ve had a football stadium built on top of it. I’m also a little curious how they managed to remain perfectly dry in the pouring rain. And where Mr. Werewolf went for the first 8 minutes. Wasn’t he hot on their tails and hunting them?
Setting aside all the small enivornmental curiosities, it was a decent episode. The budget could have been better budgeted and very few fights that ends with "oh, whatever, time to faff off home" are satisfactory. It was also a bit disappointing for the fight between Lily and Erica to just end with teasing. If they were going to put effort into a fight, it should’ve been the later stuff between Godou and wolfboy, not for something that was going to turn into a gag. And Mariya remains terrible, right up through the reverse Sekirei’ing. Don’t think that the shot of him with the sword going nuts jutting out from his waist while she kissed him went unnoticed either.
