Not Quite a Combo Breaker but.... It's Time for PAINTBALL!

Well after dwelling on dark matters for a bit I was damned happy to see Tuesday roll around because that means StellaWALLOFTEXTc3 is finally up on Crunchyroll.

In this episode we learn that the KGB club is even more co-ed than we thought.

This despite the fact that one of their members today has chosen to be strapping and not trapping.

One of the points that this episode touches on is the importance of having something to fall back on in the event of unlikely contingencies.


"We are SO going to kick Oorai's ass this year!"
"And those witches too!"

Oh...there was one other thing...



This show continues to completely surprise me.

In addition to a rather unexpected  direction, this episode does develop on a couple of things we've seen previously.....
*Yura really is beginning to miss the plot...The point of paintball is to have fun, it is a leisure activity.
*Something BIG went down between Sonora and Haruna in the U.S.A. It's not at all clear WHAT but it seems to be developing into a major plot thread.

The series emphasis on sportsmanship is still very much in evidence. This particular episode touches slightly on the do's and don'ts of leadership as well.

I am really impressed. I have no idea where it is going but I'm increasingly confident I'm going to enjoy finding out.

I didn't like this episode, mainly because Yura is forgetting rule #1: the point is to have fun. She's getting obsessed with winning.

Also, charging into the street like that was 9 kinds of stupid, and it's really lucky she didn't get killed.

2 Yes regards Yura forgetting the point. That seems to be one of the themes to the show. In this case she also has the added guilt of doing it for a friend.


As for the other thing, most likely she slipped into paintball mode and forgot to take cars into account...ie: she forgot rule#2 'situational awareness'.

Todays lesson kids: General orders 1 and 2 are NOT suggestions.

This episode was not as...I don't know...engaging?... as some of the others but set up a LOT of stuff and it remained very interesting; to me anyway.
