At the halfway mark of the series it’s been easy to get into the groove of the show and I’m simply glad to have them in chibi form instead of normal form. Idol shows have been so omnipresent for the last few years that getting something down like this is a nice change of pace. This episode puts us back in the class for a bit, which is definitely fun, as we see those that pay attention and those like Sakata that try to secretly sleep through class. It’s amusing to watch as he gets some help for Urata, which in turn just gets Urata into trouble. And the more that Urata tries to wake up, it becomes a mission of his, the more he gets called out for it – and even gets others into trouble.
A lot of this show has focused on the group in their club room after the opening installment and i really expected it to stay there for the run. Getting out of it a bit is welcome and seeing how Urata gets treated definitely makes for some amusing moments here. You totally get why he tries to help Sakata at first and how the mission changes so dramatically the more time goes on. Sakata!
