These photos were taken on the same day as the insect ones, but I decided to split them up.
This is the anime of the season, for sure. I love the way other people think so too. Love the way totally unrelated products are selling out, as in one of the above links. The other link does not make me so happy. Sky High must NOT die. I mean, I'd still keep watching, but really. That is not the surprise I'm looking for.
One thing that confused me about this episode was that it really seemed like Bunny and Kotetsu were kind of being given the option to fight as a team against Jake (he said he was fine just skipping ahead the next person and drew them simultaneously) and they didn't take it. Overall, it seems like a bad plan to just go along with his demands, although I suppose they thought Sky High could win. I was sad seeing Keith lose so easily, but he did okay in comparison to Rock Bison.
Next episode, I want to see a reason for T&B fighting separately and an indication Kotetsu achieved something in his fight in preparation for Bunny. Or just something to stop making him seem like a loser. A win for him, in other words.
I would also like to see Sky High, Ivan and Tiger not die. May I suggest the mayor instead?
Summary: Hoping for a happy ending.
Minatsuki is introduced, whose name I recognise from youkofujima's journal. I like her, she's crazy! I lol'd SO HARD when she told Ganta about her mum and the potted plant.
However, here's an alternative reading of her backstory: everything happened according to what the 'nice' version told Ganta, but she went crazy in the prison. Like everyone else apparently has -- even Ganta has started down that path. It's starting to look more likely that Ganta is the Akai Otoko too.
Summary: ...But so many twists and turns, who knows?
