We continue our plot of over-simplistic villains and solutions that make no sense as our brave (or rather reluctant) knights continue to thwart attempts at… You know, I’m not even sure that the villain in this anime has an actual plan.
Dad obsessed with finding buried treasure drives son to ranting at people in a bath house. Then son seems fine but somehow the student council decide he is resentful and transform him into a monster. Fortunately, the heroes are also out digging for treasure because there are some embarrassing secrets hidden inside time-capsules right where the treasure dig is taking place. Without a single twist, this plot just drives along its standard path right to the end of the episode.
I should never watch episodes of this anime back to back. Like ever.
I always had this theory with Sailor Moon that you could always tell if an episode was going into a serious battle because you would get a full transformation sequence for each character early in the episode. The only other time you would get full transformation sequences were on throw-away episodes where even the filler-monster-of-the-week characters couldn’t actually fill the twenty minutes run time. Why is this relevant? Because Cute High gave us full transformation sequences of the boys, I think mostly because there was no way the villain of the week was ever going to have enough substance to carry even this insubstantial episode. We definitely hit a low point with episode 5, unless you happen to like the boy’s transformations.
