This is no Rose Bride, boy!
I think this is the best episode yet, and I’m not even a fan of Azusa. The ridiculous plot works very well–the show knows how much it can get away with, and it never crosses that line. Makoto and Miki, the other two girls, are given ample time to shine, and aren’t just there to pad the episode’s cast out.
I wasn’t prepared to like it as thoroughly as I did, but Azusa really won me over. Kindness to strangers should be a standard moe trait! She’s like a flower carried by the wind. Her short hair has grown on me now.
Speaking of Makoto, her fight scenes are insanely well-animated. Azusa, you may not need to look further for your destined someone~
OTOH, Miki is just bro-tastic. Stay cool, Miki. Love the heart-shaped choker, too.
