Ah sure the sports activities competition – an ideal alternative to point out off characters doing wacky and loopy bodily feats. However, whereas this episode had some nice bodily humor and gags, I actually do must as soon as once more commend the present for displaying the bond and influence the characters have on each other. It actually was good seeing a variety of these characters hype one another up and do their greatest beneath such ridiculous circumstances. We as soon as once more see Komi doing her greatest to be of use to all people however we additionally get an excellent sense of simply how a lot she means to all people else. Plenty of this might’ve simply come off as shallow if the present hadn’t carried out all of the legwork to determine how shut these characters will be, particularly since there are nonetheless a variety of characters that simply glorify Komi as a queen quite than as an individual. Still, that does not imply we do not get another colourful characters who fully misinterpret the room. We get a fiery rival whose design is simply wonderful and I hope to see extra of her, however we additionally get the vice principal who appears to be simply as quirky as the remainder of her college students. However, I’m glad that we stored the deal with the characters who legitimately really feel empowered by her presence, and it is no shock that my favourite bit within the episode was when Tadano received a full burst of power simply from Komi cheering him on to do his greatest.
That craziness solely makes up the primary half of the episode; the second half leans extra on the quiet healthful facet of issues. The present has carried out a very good job of taking the time to determine the virtually inherent affection that Tadano and Komi really feel for one another. Given Komi’s dysfunction, you actually cannot rush that kind of relationship between them; in any other case, you run the chance of creating it really feel uncomfortable. So I truly just like the method the present appears to have, which is placing Komi in conditions the place she must resolve whether or not or not she desires to be proactive. We see her get her first bouts of jealousy and longing revolving round Tadano as she desires to remain by his facet and be helpful to him in a means that different extra “normal” college students are. It’s actually candy, and whereas I’m certain these two will not be confessing their love to one another by the tip of the season, it does make me stay up for them fostering a romance down the highway. This episode gave me extra sweetness than any vacation treats ever may and I’m thirsty for extra!
