I’ll never understand how that stuff works.
Fairly boring and mostly inane episode. I honestly have no real idea what they’re trying to do with Motoharu. He’s just kind of… there… trying to be the comic relief sidekick suddenly jammed in halfway through hovering on the sidelines because god help anybody if he has any manner of interaction with anybody but Akatsuki. And whatever the hell that was after the fact with the extra terrorist. Was that supposed to scare us about him? Show that he’s just as awesome but smarter? What exactly is his point, show? Anyway, most of the first half was just him and Akatsuki futzing around with the magical clothes-dissolving superbike. Only effective against female fabrics.
The second half sort of centered around Haruka’s troupe vs
random LARPers reenactng Die Hard terrorists, and you know how I love it when shows full of super powered characters who all want to beat each other up instead decide to fabricate some nameless cannon fodder that lasts all of 15 seconds instead. It’s not like there’s any other bad AT-X T&A show on Thursday nights ths season that has been doing it either! It also once again only showed that no matter how many magical powers characters have or how super awesome they are, Gun Haver will always rule supreme. Also, it’s a little suspicious how Haruka’s wind powers normally facilitate all manner of up-skirt shots, but as soon as she’s wearing nothing but Akatsuki’s jacket, it seems glued to her thighs.
Beach episode. Also, elves.
