Very funny episode. I laughed hard when Ferris and Milk's team destroyed the boat. Ferris stories about Ryner going around town and taking women at night was also funny. Also glad that Sion was able to relax and smile for a while but who knows how long that will last.

Next episode will be a recap but I hope they add some new stuff towards the end.

I want to like Ferris... I really do. But this sex fiend thing is just getting very tired and over-played.

I honestly have no idea why animators bother with recap episodes. Aren't those a waste of time and money, or am I missing something?

Spoiler for Episode 16:

Actually recap episodes usually save time & money, not waste it.

Recap eps are used for several reasons. To reduce budget costs by producing a cheap episode while still meeting the required number of episodes. To build more time in the production schedule to allow the animators a buffer to catch up in production or get ahead of a production schedule. To pace the story out so that the series reaches a certain story point (like a desired ending, for example) at the proper time in the season's cycle. To air a cheap episode during a specific time when viewership is expected to be very low. (Similar idea to why in the US, we get a mid-season repeat show during the week of a major holiday when viewership is expected to be really low.)

In short, a recap episode may be an annoyance to the viewers, but from the production team's prespective, it can be a godsend.

Took them 14 episodes but they will finally meet... Hopefully without eating mango.

Is it just me or taking out all the mango scenes and the recaps would take out half the series?

I don't know, it may be cheaper to produce, but it's still money that has to be used, isn't it? In addition, Denyuuden seriously needs episodes. They are trying to fit 11 volumes in 26 episodes. In my opinion, in this anime, every single episode should be used in the most efficient possible way.

But, well, since they called 15.5 and not 16, this episode may actually just be an extra, rather than part of the 26. If that's the case, then I have no complaints.

Yeah, seems that way. Meaning that an episode wasn't wasted for this recap.

Quick question to anyone else who watches the Funimation stream, am I just slow or was this the first week they subbed the OP? I double checked and last week's episode was subbed as well but I don't know if I missed that or if they added it in after I saw it, either way I'm happy about it since the songs almost never get translated in simulcasts (so when any of y'all go on about how the lyrics don't fit the show it's all going over my head ).

This episode made me realize how annoying the Eris sisters are.

Sorry my friend, too much mango, not enough time to eat it all. The story part needs to be sacrificed in the name of the cuteness that is tsun tsun.

i like Eris's version of the story, and also like Shion's part in it

about the last scene of the preview, only one person can push down Ferris by force, easy guess

Well watched 15.5, as I expected it was recap, but a pretty funny one, from the point of view, and creative mind of Ferris's sister.
