that was a lot better than the previous week i like fukaziroh (pick a easier name god dammit ! ) character for now. she seem crazy enough to be amusing to watch, but not too much to be repelling. she look more comic crazy than serious crazy.

poor llen think the name display will make it easier for her to dual pito, she don't realize she will attract enemies like hell because they all want to beat the current champion it will make some interesting FFA when everyone come together and they all try to take advantage of two other team fighting to stab one of them in the back the moment they finish the other team.

llen also have absolutely no naming sense as well if she named last team LM and this one LF

Fuka is already a blessing for the show. Llenn can be funny as well, but she takes it to the next level, and then the one after, and despite that, they still come off as great buddies. Also, holy crap, that is A LOT of ice cream.

Extra points for using those filler guys to emphasize Pito's dark nature. Did not see it coming at all.

I kinda wonder if it isn't a red herring after all. Maybe she has no intention at all of killing herself or anyone in real life. Maybe her team's PM4 because it's Pito + M + 4 extras. Maybe she laughs when her team mates or herself die because she just doesn't take the game that seriously (it is, after all, just a game). And she's a bit of a troll.

Yeah, Fuka is ends up bringing quite a bit of fun in a short time. I cracked up when she kept on repeating that line. I doubt she would still want to marry "M" if she met him in person, though.

A side note: that may be the most chaste girl's locker room changing scene that I can think of.

Second. I was expecting a lot of exposure, but it ended being very much harmless, which is fine by me.

In japanese the name is pronounced PMshi. It could mean PMfour or PMdeath. I think Pito had the second on her mind when she named the team:

There are some reasons why Sony might not choose to call its machine the PlayStation 4. In Japan, four (四) can be read as "yon" (よん) or "shi" (し). The kanji for death is "shi" (死), which is why the number four is considered unlucky.

I know why LF think the 4 stands for death. My point is, we really only have M's word for it that she is that crazy. And Memento Mori's leader's assessment, but all he's really said is that she's a bit of a troll who doesn't take the game as seriously as he does.

So the 4 could be just some kind of coincidence with no sinister meaning.

Sure it could be "just coincidence", but you know out of three people associated with Pito, two are convinced she is nuts and third is perfectly fine believing it.

Basically if someone looks like lunatic, sound like lunatic and act like lunatic, there is very high chance that person in question is, you know... lunatic.

As others have noted, the 4 is definitely sinister in Japanese.

With regards to what M said of Pito... he loves her but he thinks she's crazy. Normally if you love someone you have a more positive view of them. So if Pito isn't crazy to some degree then M would have to be really out there. I would note that Pito commented to LLENN, back when she was introducing M to her, that M is a bit of a criminal. So yeah, we have some hints that we shouldn't necessarily trust M too much.

Anyway, I think it's better for the story for it to be ambiguous as to what Pito would really do. For example, if we knew for certain that she had actually killed people in the past or had tried to, then that would frame her as a "criminal who needs to be caught and removed". Instead, the story is presenting her as a friend who needs to be saved from herself. This is consistent with the overall themes of the show which focuses more people overcoming their personal issues (via video games) and of friendship in general.

9 pints of ice cream. A mix of flavors, including banana and rum raisin (is she a grown up Toshino Kyouko?). That's just crazy.

And TMI. Seriously, TMI! Also makes it disturbing trying to imagine her texting while... cleaning up.

And in the background while LLENN is listening to her friend explain, the LED sign for GGO Ice Cream. (Just 200 credits!) What we always needed.

Memento Mori team. Bets on them being a bunch of 8th grade nerds in the computer club? The leader has too much of a bishonen feel to be real, and that seems like the perfect mirror image to SHINC.

From what I've seen M doesn't really strike me as someone that is all right in his head. I don't think Pitohui is quite normal either, but that doesn't mean she's capable of murder.

I have not seen it mentioned that the last two episodes laid out why Pito was attracted to LLENN. LLENN was a natural player killer and a newbie who did not know Pito's reputation.

To be fair, even if she were capable of murder, she would only kill M who is actually willing to die for her.

I love Miyu's choice of weapons: dual-wielded MGLs. They're beastly when firing, but the reload time is something else entirely, which might be a liability as matches wear on. Personally, I would've gone with an M60E4 for supporting Karen's P90 rushes with suppressive fire.
