The special theme for screenshots today will be nothing but shots of cosplay… and will probably have nothing to do with the text following it.
Okay, honestly… I didn’t think this episode was that bad. It was actually relatively good compared to most of the crap that they’ve released in the past. However, this by far does not mean that this was a spectacular episode at all. But, I think this episode was a lot closer to being “acceptable” than the few previous episodes.
Everyone at school is preparing for the school cultural festival. Yui naturally tries to take charge and offers two (boring) options for what the class should do for the festival. This gets immediately taken over by Saruyama who proposes an idea that fits with everyone’s opinions, an animal cosplay cafe.
Meanwhile, Yami tries to look for a job as she cannot forget her profession as an assassin. And of course, since she lacks much knowledge about Earth, she ignorantly tries to search for a job in assassination. It’s also revealed that Yami is actually 24 years old in Earth time (not sure if I really want to believe Xebec on this one).
Everyone works on getting everything ready for the animal cosplay cafe. Yui gets a bit depressed and loses her self-confidence after having her ideas turned down by everyone. Haruna comes along and cheers her up and everyone is happily working on the festival again.
During the day of the festival, one of the waitresses was not able to make it due to a fever. While everyone was trying to figure out what to do with the extra costume, Yami appears looking for a “job”. Of course, due to the extreme coincidence, Yami fills in the spot for the missing student. It also turns out the Saki was trying to do an insect cosplay cafe that pretty much failed, attracting only one customer.
Nothing really special happened this episode. Cultural festival episodes were always more about fun and stuff anyways. The animal cosplay cafe idea turned out nicely as it gave some decent fanservice. I’m not sure how I felt about the whole Yami trying to find a job or the emo Yui bits of the episode, but at least with emo Yui it felt like the writers were trying at least. I guess the job hunting Yami was just a lame excuse to include her in the cosplay cafe in the end. Overall, I kind of liked episode as there wasn’t anything too stupid about it. It was a bit boring at times, but at least it wasn’t retarded.
Next episode looks like it will definitely be retarded. I think we’re going back to “To LOATHE-Ru” here with idiotic episodes. I mean with Saruyama as the main character again and the lame filter over everything to make it look like it’s in the past or something can’t really prove to be a worthwhile episode.
