This episode is a step down from the previous weeks, I’m afraid. The drama with the Producer is very contrived, and I found myself rolling my eyes halfway through. He’s perfectly fine if he stays in the background, but otherwise he’s just going to steal screentime from the girls.
What redeems this episode, however, is Miki (again). Miki does whatever she pleases, and this time it pleases her to step up and take some jobs by her own hands, and that’s exactly what she does. It would be a welcome change from her.
Ritsuko makes it into the list, owing to a positive portrayal of a career woman. Her enthusiasm is infectious! She’s on a roll right now, and I can see myself cheering her on (since this is all her initiative) in the weeks to come.
Finally, Haruka gets a spot in the rankings. I liked how she was the most thoughtful with the Producer’s plight, and the candy bit was a nice touch. Her bright outlook in life is definitely put into good use here. But really, the Producer took too much precious screentime from everyone. Even Takane is not amused.
Nothing much to say about Ryuguu Komachi, despite one of the members having had a haircut. It seems that Iori is the leader of the group? Now that’s something!
