^ That conclusion is true you know if you read Japanese News. D=


Well after finishing the episode, ignore what I said beforehand about middle school swimsuit models being a problem. (Honestly is Saten's bust getting bigger or is it just me? I've been reading that she used level upper on them somewhere lol) o_o

I guess just seeing a "figure" like kuroko wearing strings is almost like seeing granny's naked trying flaunt their assets.
Actually that's a bad comparison but you get what i'm saying.

Of course that goes without saying that Konori is something I definately prefer.
Especially if the two swapped swimsuits like so:

Spoiler for =o:


Very delicious.


EDIT: Yes I just found the "earlier episode - current - manga" comparision of Saten. I guess it wasn't just me.

I really liked this episode a good laugh, my favortie parts were Uiharu and the snake, Kurokos choice of swimwear and Misaka at the end, that was pure gold i would have loved to see misakas reaction after she realised what had happened. Next episode is looking even better though noticed some old faces so can't wait.

Meh, it wasn't that great. I don't have a problem with a decision to make a beach episode like this, but there weren't that many funny moments. Am I the only that thinks the studio had ulterior motives for trying to get cooking in this episode? I was actually a little disturbed, like others, by Kuroko's choice rather than amused but that was sort of made up for by Konori. Uiharu liking the snake was also kinda funny. So was the moon bit and the cue epic music.

That ending was priceless though. I wish there were more people there though.

Konori is win. I won't mind fillers especially fanservice ones as long as Konori is involve. Well I like to see more of her in every episode. Kuroko in that swimsuit and wiggling around like that was scary

I did not expect a 2001 reference. Normally anime would just parody/reference other anime, stereotypes, or something Japanese related. Not foreign pop culture references.

Best part of the episode. Also Kuroko holding the bone.

This was a very bad episode. Except for three scenes, Kuruko's swimsuit, Kazari's snake charmimg, and Mikoto's water splashing, the other 90% of the episode was a complete waste of my time. Now I know my fair share of fanservice/useless episodes, but they can be done well, such as Saki 5 and Saki 20. This episode just did not do it for me.

3/10

Good thing they are intentionally ambigious about the date.

Touma recognizing Biribiri means his brains isn't scrambled yet.

You don't watch older shows a lot, I suppose? Because in the earlier days it was completely common to reference foreign pop culture in anime. See for example Kimagure Orange Road tv series with nods to The Graduate, Terminator, the Blue Lagoon, ect., or Urusei Yatsura with hommages to Star Wars, Noth by Nothwest, Casablanca...

As evident by the episode thread, when there could be 6-8 pages, there's only 3...

Awful Xmas episode is awful.

Fewer episode threads doesn't mean the episode is awful, just that there wasn't anything to talk about.

Occasionally feel quite akward with this anime; the characters are so unforced and open that I feel perverted watching them...anyway, decent episode, Koroko's maniac behaviour back in full force, Saten hugging Urihara in the snow and Urihara with the python was cute.

I'm very curious how this series relates to the Accelerator/Misaka clones arc. Misaka's suprise at the stripper lady's story of inhumane research suggested that she hasn't found out about the project with her clones yet.

There are over 100,000 girls in their age range [13 to 15] in Toshi Gakuen, all of them living away from home. [1.8 million students in TG according to Touma]

Many of them have larger breasts than Kuroko.

with the soft/deary way they talk its like they're half asleep the whole time, or on some kind of drug..
Like most of the cast they are on several drugs. It is part of the Curiculum. Along with regular sessions in Testament machines.

It is only a basic Holodeck like the original one in Yamato and doesn't spring for all the kill the user functions Starfleet buy.

And now we know either Uiharu likes snakes or thinks it was a Bikini with Holoprojection capabilities.
