While it seems late in the piece to reveal yet another antagonist (even though we knew someone had to have set the bounty) this episode worked very well. The balance of drama, action and comedy seemed to work this episode rather than having the show tearing itself in multiple directions all at once. It could be that this episode really focussed on Dazai and Atsushi and the main conflicts were already set up from the previous episode. Whatever it was, I really enjoyed this episode and was surprised at the end of it because I’d lost track of the time.
