I’m really wondering what the point of most of the episode of Alice & Zoroku was. Minnie C, for whatever reason, continue to toy with and generally be cruel to Sana and after Minnie C injects her with some unidentified liquid, Sana essentially goes to some space where she meets a girl who could literally only be an older version of Sana (though they kind of didn’t tell us anything about her).
Anyway, unidentified blonde girl with exact same eye-colour as Sana pretty much tells her that she has someone who will help her and to call their name and suddenly Zoroku finds himself in the car with Sana and Minnie C. Why that was helpful I’m not sure though in the process the little tracking thing they were trying to use that wasn’t working because she didn’t have it with her so they now know where Sana is and rush to the rescue (did Zoroku have the tracker on him?).
Finally, at the end of the episode, rescue arrives.
Possibly if this had been an entertaining 20 minutes, or if something had been revealed, or even if the moment between Sanae and her grandfather had come off as anything other than a desperate attempt to tug some emotional heartstrings, there would be a point. But essentially they start the episode trying to find Sana, at the end of the episode they found her. Everything in between was kind of just there. Admittedly, I’m at a point where I don’t actually care about any of these characters so you could probably blow both Sana’s legs up with a gun and it still wouldn’t get an emotional response from me.
Alice & Zoroku is available on Crunchyroll.

KJ knows what’s up.
J.C. Staff has really done a pretty weak job at drumming up a connection between their cast and the viewer. I completley get why you would feel this way
It’s a shame, because as many issues as the first episode had, it was interesting and the characters could have been fine. But then we just went into standard anime mode and to be honest its all kind of been pretty dull.
