Drama, drama, drama. In this episode we get Re=L’s backstory, a fairly cool fight sequence, some magic spells thrown around, the old guy’s plan totally foiled, rescue the Princess, and make up with all our school friends to live happily ever after playing beach volleyball. It’s all very exciting but kind of feels like none of it was dealt with properly.
Admittedly, at least we don’t spend three episodes with the whole which side is Re=L on and at least there’s some reason for the stupid name but really this kind of felt like they just wanted to get back to playing on the beach and girls in swimsuits as fast as possible and Rumia being kidnapped was just an unwelcome diversion rather than the main plot.
