Is the bad smell making you feel down? Just sing!
While this show had a rough start, I thought the last two episodes was the turning point. With this one, the directors threw a curve ball and surprised us with some more hilarious moments with fanservice when Mirai becomes so desperate to take down a Fruit Youmu for the money. They faced difficulties since it keeps releasing some kind of nasty smelling liquids when they go near it.
Although having Mirai dressed up in cute clothing to distract the target felt somewhat out-of-place, it also brought a lot of hilarious moments. This consists of Mirai wasting money on bonsai plants (you wonder why she can’t afford anything), complaining about the bad smell and doing suggestive poses to distract the Youmu. Also, I’m very surprised how Mitsuki epically fails to slay the Youmu, but receives a worse smell compared to the others. I thought she supposed to be the best spirit hunter out of the three? I guess not.
On the other hand, the thing that surprised me the most is when Mirai and Mitsuki decided to become idols in order to defeat that Youmu. While it failed, it was a pretty good and I enjoyed it. It was nice to see the girls and the boys wearing fabulous clothing while they sing and dance. This makes me wonder if the people at Kyoto Animation found out that idol shows like Idolmaster and Love Live are popular and decided to do this episode because they didn’t have enough source material to use? I think this might be the case since Chuunibyou also had a good amount of original episodes.
Although this episode is clearly out-of-place for a show that supposed to be a dark fantasy, it’s apparent that it will have some ups and downs. Even so, I still enjoy it. Perhaps Kyoto Animation Is mixing comedy with some dark stuff so more people would enjoy it. Judging from the next episode, I think things will finally get serious when Sakura appears again to challenge Mirai again. Judging from the previous episodes, Mirai will be better prepared this time to face her off.
