LOL. Mikoto got bumped down to a sidekick status.

Since this was a relatively insignificant arc, I was hoping that they would reveal something about the future characters, but unfortunately they didn't do much of that.

From looking at the screencaps at /a/, someone in J.C. Staff is a fan of Schindler's List.

It was a "good story", but the episode felt kind of long for some reason.
Though it's a good thing Komori-senpai got appearance time and a story, even if the development felt kind of old (in a good meaning?).

Next episode is...? Hmm? Boxing?

The ability to see through clothes...
(゚Д゚)Hah?! What will we do about the males who have this ability?!

Well, Mikoto can't hog all of the appearance time to herself. She needs to let the other characters get story time.

Though they did have that Hebitani guy talking to a mysterious person (the lady in the OP?)

Eh, nothing especially good or bad about this one, so at first I thought I'd rate it average. However I came up with some pros:
-extra backstory / insight into Komori
-speedy and efficient resolution to an arc that looked like it could have dragged on
-obvious restraint by the writers from including horny Kuroko scenes
-Anti-skill continues its tradition of being late to the party

Gave it 8 (average+2).

It was a pretty average arc; I liked all the Konori Mii development.
Also... after the ED when Kuroko and Mikoto were standing on the roof, I thought for sure Kuroko was going to make some kind of joke about the umbrella. Like, since the names under it were "Kuro" and "Mii", so I thought she'd go "Onee-sama! It's Kuro as in Kuroko and Mii (minus the extra i) as in Mikoto!!"

... I don't know -_-

So it seems that the Skill-Outs, at least the Big Spiders, used to be just a hang-out group.

I assume every other one is targeting espers, though.

Well, that story ended earlier than I expected.

Sure he can there is Biribiri Vision after all.

Why do I have a feeling Capacity Down is related to what did in Harumi's kids?

Lol at the joke she did it with Kurozawa. She didn't, did she?

Well that was ok at best, all I could think about was these punks are really really pathetic, yeah sure enough thats their role but come on.
If it's not Bruce Lee, Batman or Oga(Beelzebub) then they should have really been able to over power the guy, they had the numbers.

Now I can only hope it goes back to Biribiri and Kuroko-sama, not that I didn't like a little focus on Mii

oh and Touma>>>Kurozawa why?

simple he has Biribiri chasing after him

Well Mikoto's POV is always look into the present and the future and not the past. Sentimentality is something she did understand yet with Mii. But soon will... (If we ever get to that anticipated arc)

Well it becomes poignant with Mikoto for Touma who doesn't remember when they first met, or those times she chases him and nearly kills him or Touma not even remembering Mikoto or her name.

Mikoto's first reaction when they met again after Touma looses his memory... Remember My Name!

the first time I gave a score this low to this show, I found it really boring, maybe with the reason that I don't care a slightest bit about that damn senpai
*sigh*
