Hmmm nyesssss there’s some serious drama going on here, let’s see. Also, naturally, the Momobamis lost. They don’t seem to be as good as they are supposed to be, AMIRITE.
Japanese Title: この女触れるべからず
Resuming the game that was cut short because of Yumeko being POISONED (yes, this has gotten to that level now, uh-huh), we find ourselves on the table with Mary, Miyo, Miri and Suzui. Following Yumeko’s last wish, Suzui obeys every single thing Mari commands him to do, putting all his trust in her, even though at some point Miyo offers him enough antidote for all three of them in exchange for their votes. Mary manages to kick ass in the first round and save both herself and Suzui from getting poisoned, but this doesn’t apply for Miri, who has to get her finger pierced and play the last round while slowly fainting. Before making her final move, Mary declares that she noticed the dealer adjusting the game all along; and that’s true. The annoying loli shit that won’t stop talking has, in fact, been dealing the cards in a way that the same cards will be dealt in each round: four of each kind. Mary, by figuring this out early enough, managed to use Suzui’s card to read Miyo and Miri’s hands. And well done to her, because she RUINED them. Miyo, being the oneesan, orders Miri to lose the game, as she is probably not very keen on allowing herself to be humiliated like this. SO much for my hopes of some fair gameplay and decent attitude from her part.
They’re still right you know: Uh yeah, I appreciate the fact that they were not focused and relied on their poison and all, but I hate to break it to you kids, violence is more effective that gambling. I know, you may find this hard to believe, but in the real world, some ass would have been kicked, and our protagonists would have ran away with the antidote, like I mentioned on the previous episode’s review. I know it’s hard to grasp, but in real life things are not judged on gambling, cooking competitions and Pokemans. SO PLEASE ANIME STOP MAKING MORAL DEDUCTIONS OUT OF INVALID SITUATIONS PLS
Damn that loli: There’s various and numerous reasons why I hate loli characters (well, apart from the obvious one), but damn, that girl did not shut up during the entire episode. I understand that stating the obvious and wearing animal outfits is important to you but why do I have to put up with it, along with your absurdly bubbly personality and your screeching voice. NO.
Trouble in Momoheaven: Ooooh, seems like Miyo and Miri will have some major drama going on… what was that non-chalant reaction when Miyo bluntly asked her little sister to poison herself because she couldn’t be bothered to do it? SHAME. Shame on you, Miyo. You such. However, how cool is the fact that they have their own little language? Not cool enough to cover your BETRAYAL Miyo, that’s how cool.
#disappointed: I thought this was gonna be a good match. I didn’t of course expect the Momos to win but I was genuinely hoping for a respectable defeat, one that would be more on the ‘Good game, nice to meet you’ side. Oh well.
Some lolz: Can we just take some moments to appreciate how the President ruined that pseudo-European guy with the chest hair who her assistant almost tased? What a character. His 30 seconds of screen time were totally worth it.
Come on, I wanna see more, it’s so annoying not being able to binge watch this like I did with the first season. MOAR
