The opening sequence of Trickster this week decided to play around with the visuals instead of sound, though I have to ask why there is suddenly some sort of floating base. Anyway, Hanasaki remains an inept main character and not a particularly interesting one. Amazingly enough after Akechi turns up he regrets being a complete tool. Kobayashi is the real star of the episode and I have to agree 100% with this comment.
Despite that he still shows up at the end quite dramatically and I guess they want us to watch next week to find out how bubble boy can save the day. Once again though, whether any of the ‘boy’ detectives can actually detect is being called into question given they really rely way too much on outside assistance to find anything.
Trickster is available on Crunchyroll.
