On the other hand, the end of this episode was probably the funniest moment this season.
Angsty angsty first half. Chisato’s thing is more about pleasing the men in her life and her inability to please Daiki anymore, although it’s still pretty much displacing her feelings onto Yuuki. Mifuyu, on the other hand, decides that the proper way to respond to Chisato bawling her eyes out and yelling at her that she actually likes him too is to strip down to apparently a second pair of clothes she was wearing underneath the first, revealing a big ol’ scar across the baby oven and leave, because everybody should be grumpy apparently. I’m not sure what the plan was the next day. Have her bring all her clothes over? Anyway, Chisato’s issues overcome by being told that it can’t be all about her (and aforementioned Mifuyu angsting), while Mifuyu’s plot to run away was foiled by the power of stairs. Elsewhere, the shadow council seems to have nothing better to do than taunt him and get him riled up over his women.
Then in half #2, we go full on corny spy popcorn flick along with terrible harmonica song and searching montage. But at least the harmonica was magical enough to bring ol’ whose her face back out of her car induced coma. They could’ve probably picked a better spot to hang out than the middle of the damn road again. Then the real insert song kicked in, the auras flared, and we all had a touching emotional moment between characters who have had less growth than most puddles and everybody goes back to the election. Oh, and Chisato’s overcome her one-sided chocolate fits so they share a nice uh… non-platonic smile. Well, until Chisato tells some random guy that they’re dating, so he tosses them into the glare-iest mock wedding ever. Then the post-wedding kiss is interrupted by a taser/kidnapping because there’s still an episode to go, and if we’re going to have silly drama to end it, we might as well take things to truly ridiculous levels.
I think it was the violin ED beginning during the tazing that really made that scene shine. What? It wasn’t meant to be humorous? Well tough. Because it was hilarious.
