This episode was way too funny for one that killed off a character. I think it’s interesting to see that alliances are already becoming really murky, and I still think the show handles comedy well. I didn’t really expect Edogai to die so quickly, but I was already getting a bit tired of him. I guess he needed a few more crazy scenes before he left.
I swear I’m going to need a chart to keep track of how each character relates to every other character. The casual nature of Sugimoto and Shiraishi’s entry makes this scene a lot better. It’s almost like they’re hanging out as friends.
I think it’s hilarious that Tsurumi comes up with the brilliant idea to distribute fake tattoos, and everyone immediately finds out about it. Sure, they don’t know how to identify the fakes, but just the fact that they know there are fakes is pretty powerful information.
Explosions? Just what this show needs?
Oh, right…we haven’t had one of these in a while, huh?
The sheer absurdity of Ushiyama’s appearance was pretty entertaining. As I recall, the main characters thought he was dead, right? He sure knows how to make an entrance.
Honestly, Shiraishi probably makes himself more suspicious with how he behaves in this encounter with Hijikata. Still, I think it’s interesting that Sugimoto likely didn’t notice because of his own efforts to conceal Asirpa’s identity.
Last Supper reference? Sure, why not?
This is a great expression. I’m starting to like this random mob character already.
