I just don’t know about Flip Flappers.
We get another adventure inside of Pure Illusion though this one is a time loop so be prepared to watch the girls to through the same steps about three times (admittedly just a montage like version of the day) before anything happens. The problem is they don’t use any clues or anything they found from the loops to solve anything. They just kind of mad-dash and then everyone is fighting and hey let’s just smash the thing and everything will be fine. Okay, that’s a slight exaggeration but it really felt like they took random plot events to a whole new level this episode. Which is odd considering how linear the story was compared to some of the other episodes.
If I’m honest, I didn’t have a lot of fun this week with this show and I’m not sure that anything was really gained through this episode. I don’t feel the girls understand each other better and we learned nothing new about the three other girls who are also looking for shards. All we get are a few more hints that Cocona and Papika are in over their heads and we knew that already.
Still not sure what to make of this show.
Flip Flappers is available on AnimeLab.
