I kind of know I’m into a show when they deliver a whole episode of flashback and I still love it. They timed this perfectly. Just when they’ve shown how well Yatori and Ikta work together we go back to where it all started for them. It’s a cute and charming episode and the wolf siege has just the right amount of drama to be affective. That said, because the entire episode is essentially a flash back the plot this week kind of crawled to a halt. Overall, great character development, still a thoroughly enjoyable fantasy, and I really can’t wait until the next episode.
