So this episode is about going to a ball and there’s a bee. Hijinks ensued as usual in this show. Readers wondering why I didn’t cover episode 9, not much to say about it. It was a decent episode with a good message and also gave the headmistress some backstory so it was nice. Again not much to discuss though. With that done with on with the episodic.
So Crabbe and Goyle being their usual useless selves gloated about going to a fancy party to celebrate Andrew’s accomplishment. Diana as we know is the daughter of a respected family of magicians so she had to attend and the bozos got to tag along because reasons. Akko being a proud girl was determined to attend the party after they mocked her as usual and she dragged her friends along…as usual.
Later that night with some help from Squirrelzilla our quirky trio snuck into the party.
Sucy was understandably bored so when she saw Akko getting into an argument with Andrew she released the lovelove bee she got by mistake earlier in the day. See, this bee makes whoever gets stung by it instantly fall in love with the first person they see. As readers can tell Andrew was bickering with Akko so…yeah. Now…there’s a cupid bee flying around, Akko and Diana were at the same party. Guess what it was that the Nation wanted to see oh so desperately…
So the moralistic portion of the episode was about Andrew’s dad forcing him to become his heir, which meant giving up any other pursuits…even though it isn’t unheard of for a politician to be talented at more than simply being out of touch with the people. That’s a given for most politicians.
Akko secretly overheard their conversation and then told Andrew:
“Dood. Grow a pair.”
Andrew was like: “I’m the son of a proud family. I can’t go against my lineage to chase my own dreams”
Akko was like: “Dood. I’m part of a family too but I’m gonna be but I wanna be: Hokage of the Witchyworld!”
Andrew respected Akko’s confidence but what was interesting about the conversation was it seemed as if he had recovered from the sting, either that or he did have testicular fortitude after all.
Hope someone eventually tells Akko that bees are very close to becoming an endangered species…which is very bad for the human race. Anyway Akko and Andrew teamed up to liven up the party.
Eventually Akko caught the bee and the spell wore off but for once our heroines weren’t punished. Even Lotte got a nice little pat on the head moment. Good for her. She deserves happiness and not be scoffed at. As for Andrew he decided that he may become a pianist politician.
Fun episode that gave Akko X Diana shippers SOMETHING to work with. I personally need A LOT MORE THAN THAT but others, enjoy.
