Things got a bit steamy this episode, yes.
With Anna out of the picture (in more ways than one as we’ll soon see) Kuon continued her battle with Suishou who enjoyed seeing the avenger squirm. She was curious about her magical aura and got an up close and personal look. Let’s just say it wasn’t off screen. Oh and Mangetsu got a front row seat. She had lots to think about, yes.
After the OP we were greeted by a familiar sight. Only this time there was another guest.
The sad part about this scene was the myth of Ernesta enjoying sleeping in the nude being debunked but I’m sure peeps in the comments will find a way to say otherwise, yes. I got it! Ernesta’s explanation leaves out how Mangetsu ended up naked in her bed after Night 1. Yeeeeeeeeessssss.
As the three discussed their situation Nene-Nee reminded Mangetsu of her handy dandy Piggy Cam. Back at Nene-Nee’s they tried analyzing Suishou’s fighting style when she was asked about Anna. To Ernesta’s horror Nene-Nee didn’t seem to remember the sexy roid rage lunatic. Fearing the worst they ran over to Anna’s place.
Poor Ernesta didn’t like what she saw at all. Put simply Anna was erased from the public conscience. Only the GRANBELM Warriors seemed to remember. More on that in a bit.
Night 4 scarred our heroines hard as shown throughout the episode. Mangetsu got another surprise at school with a visit from a certain manipulator.
Suishou listened in on Mangetsu consoling her beloved on the phone.
S: You know you can’t use mobile phones on school grounds.
M: What do you want?
S: 3 on 1’s so unfaiiiiiiirrrrr. What do you say you team up with me? I’ll grant you any wish after I win.
M: No thanks. I don’t need anything. I’m happy helping Ernesta achieve her goal.
M: Because she’s my girl and helping her is all I want.
S: Oh really. You sure about that?
M: Wait a minute! What were you doing to Kuon during Night 4? You know…that.
S: Ohhhhhhh? Wanna taste?
M: FOOL! I am saving my blessing for Ernesta.
S: Your loss. So yeah. Kuon and her sister are super yummy. Yes indeed. Oh by the way. If I were you I’d drop out of GRANBELM. You’re not cut out for it. After all, you have nothing. Noooooooooothiiiiiiiing.
Immediately after Suishou was attacked.
S: Ohhhhhhhhh. You almost got me there. But you can’t do it, can you? Recognize this smell. Your sister Shisui’s soul was sooooo delicious. So, want us to continue where we left off?
K: Give it back. Give back my first! I was saving it for Onee-chan you bitch!
Let’s skip a little bit to Mangetsu meeting up with Ernesta. Our adorable heroine was having a nightmare thanks to Suishou’s words and the whitening…The whitening…”Shivers”. She got a text from Ernesta to come over. Took her less than 10 minutes. Dunno how far her house is from the meeting point. She got there pretty fast is what I’m saying.
E: You didn’t have to come.
M: It’s cool. I needed the “walk”.
E: So how did it with Suishou?
M: Eh. She said some stuff. Nothing serious.
M: Right back at ya babe.
M: Tear tracks. Ya really loved Anna, didn’t you?
E: I don’t deserve to cry for her. What happened to her was my fault.
(Pay close attention to Mangetsu’s lips)
M: I’ll always be there for you. It’s not your fault.
E: Mangetsu. Please drop out of GRANBELM. There’s nothing in it for you.
M: Suishou called me “nothing”. Said I had nothing to fight for.
(Ernesta with a “come closer” motion)
E: Seeing you fighting hurts because we all have/had strong burdens on our shoulders but you have nothing keeping you down.
M: Having nothing IS my burden. Feeling worthless is as heavy as everything you are/were carrying. I want to use this driving force to continue fighting beside you!
E: You know we’re eventually going to have to kiss.
We’ll find out whether Shisui yearned Suishou’s flesh or something else.
After a cool scene of our heroines being ready for Suishou’s mind games we joined Nene-Nee investigating. See, she didn’t sit idly by when our heroines brought up Anna. She researched tirelessly to find out whether something was off. Thanks to one of her sisters she found it. The investigation took her to the Kohinata household where a surprised Kibou greeted her. What could the Kohinata family have to do with the suppression of magic across the globe? We’ll have to wait and see.
So yeah. This was the gayest episode so far. Tune in next time for Night 5.
So the show found a way to make Suishou an entertaining antagonist. Before this episode the only thing she had going for her was being voiced by my goddess. As I said on Twitter writing this episodic was going to be fuuuuuuuuun.
Some fans rightfully compared Suishou to Urith. Anna and Aki-Lucky comparison was made too of course.
To me she’s a bargain bin Yurizono. “Drools”. Yurizono, yeeeeeeeeesssssss.
