Ultimate Mystery… on the Shore (Resort Last Resort)「波打際の…究極奥義(リゾート・ラストリゾート)」
The token beach episode turned out to be so much more plot-wise, so much so that I forgot it’s the token beach episode! Heart set aflutter power max!
The Tyrant Eye’s slowly losing her powers due to the overwhelming strength of the lover’s contract she has with the Dark Flame Master?! Is that really possible? Can it be true that Rikka’s slowly returning (growing up)? Say it isn’t so! I’ve really enjoyed vicariously living the chuunibyou life through Rikka and her wild imaginations and this week her level/power up was visually so exciting! It’s not even shounen!
So it seems that love makes one mature into a responsible adult and that means saying goodbye to chuunibyou and the Tyrant Eye. Rikka’s powers were first fading when her sister and her sister’s colleague’s daughter tagged along and the Tyrant Eye couldn’t stop a samurai sword! Chuunibyou’s been great at mixing humour into its theme of self-delusional coming of age story. This week though I reckon the humour’s levelled up too what with Rikka’s sister joking that the kid’s actually hers, twice! And then the little girl herself being such a fan of Japanese samurai culture & tradition. It’s not something you’d normally expect from a girl right?
Just what is going on Yuuta? Why is it that leaving Rikka in your hands hasn’t really changed Rikka much? And just how does a hot-blooded high schooler remain satisfied with just hand holding and so far, a peck on the cheek?! Yuuta’s really watching over his girlfriend as though she’s his child/ward but there are little signs that they’re normalising this love relationship – that finger bumping scene was just so cute~ I do hope Yuuta steps up more in the coming episodes as we go towards the finale. Have some public display of affection already you two! Especially now that Sophia SP VII Saturn rekindled the doubts she had over just how she felt for her ex-schoolmate (everyone saw that miles away). It’s love, a crush! Not merely enamoured friendship… But the trust between the Tyrant Eye and the Dark Flame Master is very very strong, enough for the Tyrant Eye to first suffer the power loss, only to evolve into an even greater force to be reckoned with. Be prepared Sophia SP VII Saturn (I love spelling out her entire name lol), the Dark Flame Master loves the Tyrant Eye for who she is i.e. Rikka on her own is an afterthought. So don’t think that you can force the Tyrant Eye into a corner to choose between love or her powers for the Tyrant Eye will show you she can have both!
