Review Episode 2:
The second episode of this makes us sit through another exam but at least we don’t have to listen to the narration this time. It’s all very shounen with techniques being announced and lots of flashy moves for the sake of being flashy. Then of course they reveal that this is just the start and there are more tests ahead as they’ve now simply earned the right to attend the school. Well, that’s a bit anti-climatic. As silly as this is, it’s also kind of fun. Though repetition could definitely become an issue.
Review Episode 3:
Let’s call this episode ‘idiot boy falls in love with cute girl who is clearly up to no good and involves himself in crisis for no reason’. And that about sums it up. The test was far less impressive and skipped over quickly (though no explanation about how bug boy passed it given we clearly saw his bugs freezing in the test conditions). Then the cute girl gets accused of cheating (why any teacher would bother when there was obvious cheating going on is still a mystery). She has to resist a test but oh-no, it’s so much harder. Never mind. Anyway, this series isn’t exactly going anywhere fast.
