Ikuto has to make his way to the mountain on the center of the island in order to retrieve a key that will let him seek the blessing of the Sea Dragon God, however all of the leaders from the island wonâ€™t let him get there without a fight.
This episode wasnâ€™t really too bad. Of course it didnâ€™t really have any romance bits to it, nothing like even the last episode had, but really this episode is completely not really focused on that that thatâ€™s not something that can be counted against it anymore. Still, the episode did have a lot of connection to things happening. It certainly wasnâ€™t an isolated episode, which I really liked. They brought back all of the leaders and had pretty much the entire episode be about setting up for the final episode. I would have been very mad if they had made this episode pretty much a completely random and isolated episode, especially so close to the final episode and just after some rather interesting touching moments and the rather interesting plot of Ikuto leaving and Suzuâ€™s feelings. Still, although this episode only set up for that stuff and didnâ€™t really contribute, it was still very fun to watch, as I loved the battles with the leaders. It was very fun to watch.
Iâ€™m glad that the other girls trying to get in Ikutoâ€™s way so far havenâ€™t really hindered any of the touching moments or anything. Really, there hasnâ€™t been any, there werenâ€™t really in this episode, but I can defiantly see them putting some in next episode. Aside from Ayane, all the other girls were pretty much defeated, so I really donâ€™t think there is a chance that they will be interfering, which Iâ€™m happy about because as I said them trying to do random wacky things to keep Ikuto on the island will cheapen any of the serious touching moments, and I think the show really needs to end on something like that to make any of the other comedy more ore less for a purpose. I really hope they deal with Ayane early on in the episode so she doesnâ€™t screw things up later. Although, itâ€™s not like any amount of the serious focus will make this show solely about that and change its genre over to romance, itâ€™ll still be nice to have them show a little bit of it.
