When you think deliveries, think TENTACLE SPACE CAT.
Another one of the episodes where it’s abundantly clear that the writers really have absolutely no bloody idea what they’re doing. It’s not like they’re trying to be exciting or melodramatic or… honestly anything and failing, they’re just kind of… throwing things down the staircase and using whatever lands on the highest stair. This week was "
Artsy generic black and white vignette of Cryska’s test tube/antisocial childhood" plus "date with Scarlets" plus "Alaskan delivery services named after space cats." Who exactly is enough of a fan of the Space Beagle that they would name their delivery service after the man eating monster in it.
Anyway, the date of course means that all his other women had to interrupt and/or blush from a distance insecurely. Yui going off to drink
alcohol juice afterwards was about the only thing anybody did in the episode that would separate them from 12 year olds. Well, the straight shots to the gut for being dense were a close second, I guess. And… uh… that’s it! Well, I guess there was some more dick waving with the Americans. At some point, they should think about actually showing them being badasses instead of just talking about it and watching them all act like 7 year olds. Otherwise, the huge important mega dramatic ultimate showdown will just be silly.
