I can’t believe they went there with Sanageyama and the crab guy. I don’t even want to talk about it. This episode was pretty frustrating to me. Senketsu made a huge deal out of how risky it was to transform without the glove, but Ryuuko just gets the glove back after one attack. All that bellyaching for nothing.
So now what? Does the resistance pretty much consist of Ryuuko, the teacher, and the commando now? Are they now going to lay low and prepare for a final attack? Presumably, things can’t go back to how they were before the whole arena thing. Also, what is Harime Nui’s role in the ending? A secondary boss? A three-person final battle? Side character?
