Short and brief.
This episode helped not only strengthen the bonds between Leader and Grumpy, but also strengthen Leader’s personal resolve as she had to learn to be more open to her surroundings during the big exhibition match against the two pro players.
Spoiler alert: Leader and Grumpy lost but not before making a great comeback.
Once again, the usual Leader shower scenes, only this time it’s multiplied by two. Anyway, the reason why this week’s subtitle is kind of a Leader x Leader pairing is because a fellow nation member saw potential in Leader loving herself in more ways than one. I do see where he’s coming from as they do give off a tsundere-esque relationship similar to the soon to return Himawari and Sakurako. Umm….there IS a way to express your feelings for yourself without the need of a clone but I won’t mention what it is.
Anyway, another good episode in this decent anime. So far it hasn’t been a groundbreaking show but as far as Slice of Life anime with supernatural elements go, it’s okay.
P.S.: It appears as though my greatness is rubbing off on dearest Snippettee, as she’s slowly embracing the way of the OG. How do you ask? With her latest brilliant observation. From now on in her honor, I’ll refer to the four leading girls using the following codenames, inspired by the Spice Girls:
Sweet – Yuka
Bitter – Natsumi
Hot – Saki
Bland (It will remain Cute) – Rinko (While Snippy consider Rin as bland, I still think she’s the cutest of the bunch and her codename will remain “Cute”.)
