I got a little disappointed near the end but at least the next episode looks very promising.

And the return of some characters :twothumbs

I steal picnic baskets with Yogi, smoke trees with Smokey and bail pedo-bear out of jail. Who am I?!! I am Kuma!

The Nezumi/Center moments made me cry tbh
I wasn't expecting the little mouse broke down in the end (but somehow, makes me glad); and Dance speaking thick Japanese to be understood by the gaijin girls made me laugh so hard! And Shibuya did her good deed of the day! Congrats, beautiful!


Can't wait for the next episode, to be honest, I can't tell how things are going to finish (Majijo winning the war, probably lol.)

Was a pretty entertaining ep. The bits between Nezumi & Center.. :( Dance was cute throughout her scenes, especially at the very end.

Next week looks awesome.

50 punches = zero damage

Episode potential: over nine thou...[truncated to save space]...ddd
Potential utilized: 30%

Wow, the line delivery this episode was all sorts of horrible.(ITANO...)

Mayu's expressions were pretty damn epic though. I love all of the consistent facial tics she had to set her character apart. Other than the waggling eyebrows  :rofl:, which thankfully weren't strong enough this ep to derail my tolerance for bad actingsuspension of disbelief. What did derail it was the horrible pacing of the confession scene. For example, Center's initial crying was pretty powerful. And then it went on. And on. Until it broke both of their characters and I couldn't buy it anymore. Plus the line deliveries were awkward as mentioned before. These two were still just about the only good storyline for MG2 though.

Confrontation between Maeda and Shibuya also broke character for Shibuya, who took, like, 10 levels in maturity between episodes. Must have stolen them from not!Gekikara at the hospital. That place must be a black hole the destroys the badassness of anyone who isn't Yuko. And fuck, the ShibuyaxDance this ep was just damn pathetic, too. I want my disturbing implications pairing cuteness back!

Oh yeah, and this wasn't just me, right?

What a boring episode. Man  :yawn:

Sure there were some funny Dance bits and some Center/Nezumi bonding... but man...


You know what's the problem with this whole season? It's like this:
"Meh, mediocre ep but the next episode looks promising!"
*watched new ep*
"Meh, mediocre ep but the next episode looks promising!"
*watched new ep*
"Meh, mediocre ep but the next episode looks promising!"
*watched new ep*
"Meh, mediocre ep but the next episode looks promising!"
*watched new ep*

The previews never live up to their expectations.

That's probably due to the big difference with the goals of the 2 seasons.

1st season was all about life and being all serious. 2 characters fight, 1 falls, repeat next episode (it's the kamen rider formula!).
While 2nd season is totally aimed at fan-service. They don't want any main character to lose, so we get a bunch of unfulfilled half-fights??
Which shows, cos the one-on-ones that did go all the way (e.g. Tomo vs Tomo, Center vs Chokoku), were more enjoyable (at least to me). And the fan-service actually backfired by alienating fans with the characters going all emo.

It'll be pretty hard for them to fulfill my expectations. Because what I want is for Maeda to fight all ex-queens in a row, learn their moves and use it to take out all the 6-8 rival schools (~100-200ppl?). all in 1 episode. Impossible unless they do a comic, or a movie. :D Oh, Nezumi and Center get married in the end. :bow:
What will really happen. Lots of staring/posing.. Daruma throwing eggs at everyone.. Takadeka makes everyone go home.. grad ceremony.. then movie announcement! :P

Exactly as Barrie said.

They take the best parts of the next episode and put it on the preview so it looks super good, then the actual episode is disappointing. This episode felt like it went on forever, especially the first half. Good close to the Center/Nezumi story line I guess, but I never really cared for their relationship in the first place :lol:. Second half was a little better with everyone gathering at the end and Dance being Dance.

That huge brawl shown on the preview better be fucking 3/4 of the episode man.

Points: 1 for Dance being Dance, 1 for Majijo rally at the end.

It's an ok episode... the only viewers left for this drama probably just akb fans and they might not attract many new fans though this drama.
serious yankee doesnt sell much (depends on story line and casts lineup) and yankee drama need fights, brawls, gangbangs...
They should make a comedy idol school drama or something..... MENDOL
