Joker Game Episode 9: All according to plan

This minute and a half of recap (ugh…why do people do this?) screams to me that the studio is basically trying to say “Everyone, this is an actual arc rather than episodic stories!” With the introduction that plays before the OP song starts, that means we’re looking at about four minutes before the episode actually starts…which is annoying.

I’m so bad with faces…am I supposed to know this guy? Is he the guy from last week in charge of the Wind Agency? The main character for this week from the D-Agency?

Okay, never mind. I pick this guy as the D-Agency spy.

I dunno…I’m pretty suspicious of this guy, but he seems too pitiful. Is this really all an act? Everyone else in the room looks too…”rough” to be part of D-Agency.

Oh…maybe this guy really is the guy from last week’s episode.

Is this the guy that was being initiated into the Wind Agency from last week? Man, I really can’t remember faces.

Busted! Yuuki just always knows everything, does he?

You have no idea how to be the bad guy, do you? You never proclaim victory like this.

Got him! This scene was pretty cool.

Wait…you mean he was able to pour all of the liquid directly into the tube without any of it getting into his mouth? Given the size of the tube, I find that really hard to believe. Time to go experiment at home. Remember he had to do it at a rate that would make it look like he was actually drinking the liquid.

Wow…they even used the waitress to warn Shirahata? That’s actually a pretty cool twist to the episode.

This is a dramatic drive off into the dusk scene and all to end the episode, but didn’t the houseboy spy say there were two other D-Agency spies dealing with the other two Wind Agency spies? How exactly are those guys getting out?

Man, I was starting to wonder if the Wind Agency would end up being the main antagonist for the series, but it looks like they’re nowhere near the level of the D-Agency. It was still a fun episode, but those Wind Agency guys almost got beaten too hard if you ask me. So…now what? Back to episodic stories or was this the precursor for the final arc?
