Coux is Short Round.
We continue the last month or so’s theme of "What the hell is this show doing?" by bookending the episode with everyone dressing up as Captain Clueless and a concert. And what’s in the middle? Coux, Rico, and Noir go dungeon diving because one of them is already feeling loooooooonesome. I don’t even know how they picked that trio. I’m not sure any of them have even exchanged word one with any of the others before this point.
And then masturbation-fantasy form Shinku showed up to save them from a slowly descending CG rock while Becky had the bright idea to just shoot it. With a strong enough blast to destroy her ribbon. Gasp! And then he stared in shock at her with her hair down and stars in her eyes. Remember, rapid mood swings and eye stars are a sign of melodrama to come. Also, I miss the time when they at least fought random rabbit monsters of the week instead of rocks.
