From one DJ themed anime to a DJ themed episode. How convenient.
The #1 Ranked Diva team. Deus, Ex and Machina.
Since becoming an official team No Limit were on a winning streak quickly moving up to Rank C. There were 300 teams in Rank C and to their surprise their next challengers were the Top Divas of Rank C, Card Jockey.
I should’ve known there would be a DJ team on the show.
Our heroines scouted the competition but being tough opponents Card Jockey knew they’re watching and put on a strong showing just to intimidate them. Before their big battle though…
Shounen protagonist Trope #8: Is bad at studying because they only focus on fighting or competing. Sasuga Hirana.
While Rei tutored Hirana into submission Akino was assigned the task of preparing the decks for their upcoming battle. As she did so she found the card that brought Hirana and her together. I have a feeling we’ll be seeing it again soon.
Meanwhile we got to see what Card Jockey were like outside of the battlefield. Basically they would feel right at home in D4DJ. We also learned one of the Eternal Girls was their Producer, proving once more that male Producers/managers/directors etc in anime should be done away with, right Idoly Pride? HMMMMMM!?
At the start of the episode Rei wondered why Akino was so formal when she was around them. She hoped Akino would lighten up but knew exactly why she couldn’t chill, “Absolute” Rei. This scene proved Akino was right to not let her guard down. Hirana was like “Leave the card in my deck. It’s cool”. Rei was like “If you’re confident about adding the card to the deck I’ll respect your decision” but Akino still felt intimidated by her.
Remember kids, don’t leave studying for exams to the last minute or worse, forget to study for them entirely.
No Limit started off strong but VJ Wolf trapped Hirana in her mirage effect. It was especially effective against a ditz like Hirana.
It was an evenly matched idol rap card battle but Card Jockey would get the advantage. To Rei and Akino’s surprise Hirana drew the special card. Hirana put it back in because she trusted Akino, and Rei too.
Another cool victory for No Limit. As for Card Jockey.
They’ll be fine. Their ED is pretty neat too. Definitely wouldn’t feel out of place in D4DJ. Good stuff.
