Shouldn’t we know better than to say they’re just ‘friends’ at this point?
Mostly just fairly dull setup, something this show has never done particularly well, complete with a terrible date montage. At least there wasn’t an insert song. Ena, the last character from the OP, finally shows up, and having apparently seen the OP, doesn’t waste any time attempting to insinuate herself into his brood as well as making most of the others insecure. Good lord, Mariya. Just go away. You serve no purpose. Let his sister or one of the snarky/drunky maids replace you.
Not a whole ton otherwise until towards the end. Athena’s fighting some lightning thingies and crashing into homes. Ena and Erica begin fighting because why not, but don’t get far before Doofus steps in and gets sucked into a gooey black pit for trying to bother them, so they jump in the goo too. If only that was a euphemism. It was also an incredibly poorly done fight for this show. Even Antihero’s quasi-animation last night wasn’t enough to prime me for the clumsy slowness and speedlines. The overly dramatic music probably wasn’t helping either.
