So from half-decent to watchable at best. There were some genuinely amusing moments this episode as Houhou infiltrated headquarters looking for Chou Soran but then we kept having to go back to Soran who spent most of the episode being an idiot. He did get to make one touching little monologue about Houhou which humanised him a little and then he got punched through a wall and spent the rest of the episode getting beat up but still being completely cocky. While this show remains watchable, that’s about the best recommendation I’m giving it. So many good ideas just getting buried under poor characterisation and execution.
