I think I counted five kisses in about a two minute span. …Not even counting Athena double dipping her tongue either.
It should also be noted that that scene was probably more titillating than anything the other AT-X shows have managed this season. Sweaty, panting, begging girls make his swords… into a giant round shield apparently. Well, and large too. Fairly slow/padded episode up to that point though. Thankfully, the second half picked up a lot more, although it wasn’t quite as well animated as this show has often been. Still world’s better than last night’s fiasco of an action scene, but even with all the chattering and mythology for mythology’s sake, the show usually manages a minute or two of nicely done action in its fights instead of just little bits here and there.
The entire thing with Lily under Percy’s control was more than a little silly/cliche though, and Percy didn’t help matters at all by declaring the power of love responsible. And then Doofus hit him with the pig before Athena’s snake ate him. Which both sound like they could be bad sexual euphemisms, and very well may be. Lily’s then incorporated into the harem, given her official standing as she stands with the other females, ‘hilarious’ standard harem comedy wrapup. And then they hit him with the pig.
