Thank you Diva (A) Live for not skipping this tradition.
We joined our heroines at the WIXOSS store. The manager won tickets to a 3-star hotel but couldn’t go so she gave them to No Limit. Before they left she pulled an unlucky tarot card but said not to worry.
This being an anime all the teams we’ve seen so far conveniently had reasons to be at the same hotel that day.
First order of business at the hotel?
What do you think?
Disappointed Dr Tamago wore a school swimsuit as she had solid guns. Eh. Child genius and crap.
Glad my girl Bang got a chance to show off more of her lovely body too.
So anything important happen besides blissful hotness?
Although Rei made up with Madoka her relationship with Sanga was obviously still awkward. Madoka quickly put an end to that by thanking both for being a great teammate and raivaru respectively and how they helped her and each other become stronger because of it all. That’s cool.
Next we learned the reason Dr Tamago was so into WIXOSS despite getting a college degree really early was because how fascinated she was with the concept of luck and logic in battles. It’s the classic “There’s no such thing as luck” argument, especially when it came to miracles. All luck based games had a logical outcome despite the randomness of the draw. Akino believed miracles did exist in Diva Battles but respected the doctor’s reasoning even if she didn’t get most of it.
Repeat MC Lion pic because the third thing was Card Jockey revealing the reason they’re multi-tasking was because they’re inspired by Deus Ex Machina and aspired to be as great as them.
Let’s see. What else?
Oh, right. Them. So the reason Diagram were at the hotel was they had a scheduled battle. Muzica being bad with names most of the time couldn’t remember their opponents’ names. It was Kyuru Kyuru, aka the bullies. After a lovely onsen scene where the camera knew where to aim (Not enough Muzica focus tho) the girls discovered their clothes were stolen. The culprits left a calling card. Like everyone else the bullies also had a convenient reason they’re at the hotel and could be seen here and there. Thing was I honestly forgot they existed so I didn’t notice. Anyway they’re close to being demoted to D Rank so they blackmailed our heroines into letting them win, specially three team captains would face the bullies instead of Diagram. The bullies would get triple Selector Points from each team if they won while our heroines would only get a third.
The only reason our heroines were almost beaten was because Dr Tamago was in the onsen too long and it took a while for her to get up. Once she did she and Bang figured out where the bullies were hiding and put an end to their cheating. The bullies got demoted and a fitting gimmick change. Best part of the 2nd half was seeing the captains team up.
Decent episode made good thanks to the first half. Next time we’ll see the top ranked team Deus Ex Machina in action.
