- Episode 4:
Episode starts with Ji-Oh's bed head, a little bit of sexual tension between him and Azusa intertwined with his mommy issues, which isn't weird AT ALL
Ji-Oh's music career manager pays off Gohara to get Ji-Oh back and doing his k-pop star thing and after he takes the manager's money, Gohara basically tells him, "you'll get him whenever I get him to you, and you don't want it getting out to the media, so shut up and wait"
Himawari's treachery is revealed while everyone is passing out flyers to help Ji-Oh find his mother, getting Mai alone so Gohara can offer her a spot at Aoibana. Mai turns him down, and Shiratori's only heel (Himawari being the "Big Devil") jumps ship. After Ji-Oh's mommy issues convinces Azusa to try to talk Himwari into returning, the depths of her treachery are revealed.Oni's thoughts:
In the ending "next episode" sequences, they show a flash of Himawari wearing what looks like Misaki Ohata's old gear working some corner stomps on Kuragaki...the gear with the laces across the chest that isn't the beer wench gear. Seems weird that someone that was "Big Devil" and over as Shiratori's heel (based on fan reactions and the overheard talking of a couple fans letting out during their first show after Himawari left) would then be put in gear that screams "I'm a face"
Of all the in-ring action they've shown so far in the series, I think Mai would probably end up being the best worker of the actresses in the show. The first bit of wrestling this episode was Mai v. Big Devil, and she popped off a really nice looking high kick that had a little snap at the end of it.
They addressed Ji-Oh's being able to speak complex Japanese even though he's a Korean, finally. I was kinda wondering about that...but I'm a linguistic wonk like that. Also, me, Ji-Oh and Takumi (Kamen Rider Faiz) all have something in common: being nekojita!
Now if only SerendipityFS would hurry up and finish typesetting episodes 5-6 like their status has been saying they've been for the past week...
