Saya and Riki are really cute together.

Somehow Riki being the one Saya was holding and not the other way around is very fitting.

I like how they are handling Saya's character. Rather then being annoyed by her outbursts, I can't help but feel sorry for her, because for all her spy talk and good handling with a gun, this girl has zero self-esteem. Interested in what her connection to Riki is.

And yes Riki with a gun is a very odd experience.

Can I just say:

Riki romance routes are A LOT better than Friendship Routes. Non-Stop.

I have some mixed feelings about this route. On one hand we have a very interesting character in Saya and an intriguing plot that I will be happy to follow.

On the other, there are many aspects that fail to suspend disbelief. The most glaring one being that Saya really did try to kill Riki a few times in the previous episode. Riki only escaped because he was lucky. And then he was perfectly happy to go on an adventure with this girl with guns?

Then we have the guns. Girl with machine guns in the afterlife. No problem at all. That's the afterlife, they can do anything. A girl hunting monsters in the school building at night with a sword. Ok. It is probably not too hard to get hold of a sword. Even then, there were consequences for breaking the windows. A girl hunting monsters at night with pistols and seemingly unlimited ammo. And no consequcnes for firing them everywhere. That's a bit more difficult to swallow.

Is this taking place in the dreamworld?

Well DO note that these same monsters are the ones actually covering the tracks of Saya, so it's still somehow on the believable state.....if you don't count the actual Exceutives of Darkness.

Interesting episode. It is really interesting to see Saya's character she is a little more charismatic than Yuri. I can't wait to play the game and get to know her better but this episode did well to showcase her. I find her personality still complex. I look forward to how Riki knew her.

Previously on Angel Busters...

I did laugh at the perv Riki part. I mean it was almost like he was conspiring for an excuse to get Saya naked. Although he seems to be suffering from stockholm syndrome or some shit during this arc. I mean even before Saya stopped trying to kill him, his reactions were pretty underwhelming. I can't but feel he's being used as a placeholder protagonist here. The only saving grace thus far is him thinking if it'd be better if she was in the Little Busters. Otherwise, we're relying on Jun Maeda to write romance, and hahahahahahahahaha. (Ok, Clannad was good in parts)

I don't know. It's like they thought the plot of Little Busters wasn't whacked enough, so they make it even more wacky. I mean Key stuff always gets really dumb at certain points, but this is approaching Angel Beats silliness. It's like they thought the girls in Little Busters weren't crazy and bipolar enough, so then there's Saya now. In a way, it's sort of humorous that they're turning everything about Little Busters up to 11, but at the same time there's even more eye rolling moments. It's quite funny, but I think I'll having a hard time adjusting if it decides to be serious again.

For me, at least, Saya's route works best if I kind of treat it like Chuunibyou meets a Key romance route. In other words, don't take it that seriously, except the FEELS parts, and it's pretty charming and entertaining. I definitely do like the added romance. And the internal contradictions to Saya's character are pretty amusing.

I'm having an Austin Powers take on this. With all these comical near-death situations involving overly exotic deaths, I'm expecting someone to demand a million dollars or two from the school.

Saya Tokido: International Woman of Mystery.

lol, yeah. It does work really well if you think of it as being like an Austin Powers-esque spoof of spy movies.

Spoiler for Clannad joke, some slight spoilers:

Angel Busters.... is rather fitting. I really think Saya is the bridge between the premise of Little Busters, and the premise of Angel Beats. Infact, I wonder whether Angel Beats turned out the way it did, because of the popularity of the Saya Route - perhaps it convinced Maeda that such stories would be popular with his fanbase.

Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if this were true. The similarities are too strong.

So my take from this route is this: Riki is an M right?

As a Clannad fan I would give you rep for this if the system were still in place. Well played sir, well played.

Judging by the other OVA from what Yuiko suggested and some slight hints in this OVA, I conclude that Riki is actually an S with the appearance of an M.

For more explanation, please consult...
