Oh. Here’s where the baths ended up.
Apparently "Armored Angels" is what 8bit thinks the official translation should be slash fictional conveniently named baseball team. Who am I to argue with an animated coffee mug?
Now we know what they do with any frustrations they have from Master not paying enough attention to them. I’m not even sure which was meant to be the A Plot and which was the B Plot. One had the lesbian threesome taking a bath before flying off to find the real culprit for Maste, the other had the repressed lesbians that channel their frustration to violence chasing perverts to pornography where they ended up fighting
Rika and Hanyuu car-mech girls. Of course, the two end up being one and the same. Yada yada. Misunderstanding cleared up, go off on search for true justice and a real master and/or running over ‘mice.’ Also, the true antagonist has a hilarious Snidely Whiplash mustache. That may have been the funniest part of the episode. I hope he twirls it in later episodes while tying someone to a train track.
The CG still looks pretty bad aesthetically and tends to coincide heavily with their faces drifting into their cheeks, but at least they’re trying with the action, and there was no terrible housework montage this week, so I’m counting that as an improvement. The direction is still just not that great though which doesn’t let the fighting stand on style alone. I’m not entirely certain how you’d add substance if you want to keep them all of the airhead cloying slave girls of their useless master though. Ditching him entirely would be a good move, or I guess a kidnapping or something. Although they apparently go kart racing next week. I… don’t really know what to make of that, but I’m pretty sure it is not the correct direction.
Fire the blue shell.
