Honestly, this episode was pretty fun to watch. I’m sure if I really thought about the whole spy organization, it would make very little sense. But the show doesn’t really take itself too seriously, and I’m enjoying its tone and characters. Sure, the episode is mostly training montage, but I think it does a great job of getting past the formalities of inducting Momo into the team while showing off more of the other characters.
I know it’s such a minor thing, but Momo’s facial expressions are amazing.
Didn’t they wipe the memories of the police officers in the previous episode? Sounds like a great relationship they have there. Also, I can’t help but point out that I couldn’t find any relationship between the words “spy” and “spice” in English, but that might just be a suspension of disbelief in the world of this series.
I really liked Hatsume’s demonstration of the spy gadgets in this episode. It’s pretty standard for a spy movie to have a scene like this, but the energy Hatsume puts into her explanation makes it a lot more entertaining.
The Spyce only works on young girls because…well, we need some excuse to revolve the show around cute girls doing spy things, right?
While this whole scene with the poisoned tea is a funny scene for a spy lesson, I think it’s a little weird that Momo mindlessly eats all of the food she’s given for the rest of the episode (like the meal Yuki gives her at the end). What exactly was the point of this lesson?
I’m a bit worried about this whole business with the traitor in Tsukikage. It seems like it would add excessive drama for a series like this, and I’m not a fan of having one of the main girls betray the rest. I’m kind of hoping it’s a double agent situation, but we’ll see. I guess it could always be the retired woman who owns the shop.
I’m shocked this doesn’t work. That training montage must have been really effective.
We did it?
