Kanon, now with more winking.
It’s nice to see that all the girls get some screentime in this episode. When episodes concentrate on one girl only it often feels a bit unnatural. Hopefully the girls don’t “go missing” after their individual mystery is solved. Well, this episode has (of course) lots of screentime for the unknown girl which was introduced last time.
In this scene I really like the use of different foci.
At the same time Nayuki and Akiko get some time, too.
At school there is also some Nayuki and very little Kaori & Jun,
more Shiori (by the way, her last name is Misaka),
and a bit Sayuri & Mai screentime.
Ayu finally makes an appearance after school.
Oh, and at the end we are shown how Mai likes to spend her night.
Apropos ending, somehow the change between episode and ED Sequence is not very well done. It was always a very sharp break in these three episodes.
– Ayu’s jump attack is cuter than girl-without-name’s one
– Ayu’s “Uguu~” is much cuter than Yuuichi’s
– Girl-without-name is much stronger if fed up
– Mai is pretty cool
– Akiko is a force to reckon with
