I really should learn to play by my own rules. After abandoning Trigger's SSSS.Dynazenon by the end of episode 1 and not even making it through the introduction of Combatants Will Be Dispatched I was a little worried that I wouldn't make it to episode 3 of enough anime to continue this post format.
