The schoolâ€™s newspaper club takes a trip to the human world for their summer vacation.
This episode certainly surprised me. It seems like things are finally taking off a bit, which I guess is to be expected since its nearing the end and even shows that areâ€¦like this one generally have some kind of more exciting conclusion to them. When I saw the new witch I knew something big had to happen seeing as how sheâ€™s in the OP. However even though I knew an event like this wasnâ€™t big enough to be this series’ big conclusion I was still surprised with Tsukune was skewered by the plants at the end. I thought it would be over for a while and perhaps sheâ€™d come back later. Now obviously Tsukune canâ€™t be dead since heâ€™s the main character but he looked to be in pretty bad shape. It will be interesting to see how they explain him not being dead. It was also pretty interesting to see Moka change without the Rosary removed. She definitely seems super pissed.
I was quite surprised with the bit of romantic development they had in this episode. For the most part this show hasnâ€™t really been anywhere near serious about the romance aspect of this. There has always been a joke that Moka just sucks his blood and doesnâ€™t kiss him and so on. However there were several moments in this episode that seemed like they were more then that. She never sucked his blood so some of those moments could have just turned into things weâ€™ve already seen, but it seemed like more. It seemed like they were a bit closer with each other and perhaps they couldâ€™ve kissed if they werenâ€™t interrupted. I donâ€™t really expect any real romance development from a show like this. Although I love romance and want it to be a big focus in almost every anime I donâ€™t really expect it to be in big supply here. However a little bit of it wouldnâ€™t hurt and hopefully some of those moments pointed to that.
