Tsukune and the others try and help Ruby when they learn of her situation.
I have to say I have pretty much mixed emotions about this episode. On one hand this episode is much better then a majority of the episodes because of the rather serious focus and the huge amount of action. Last episode was somewhat in the same vain, being better then a majority of the episodes where Tsukune pisses someone off or something and everyone comes to save him. However there were a LOT of things they kind of left out. I was informed of what happens in the manga which explains how Tsukune goes from being nearly dead to being absolutely perfectly fine. They kind of skipped thatâ€¦.just a little. Then just a general â€œOh, she tried to kill me but Iâ€™ll befriend her. Oh, she tired to kill me again and nearly succeeded, but Iâ€™ll befriend her. Oh, she tired to kill me and everyone else and was almost successful, but Iâ€™ll befriend herâ€, type of progress that seems a bit off.
I do have to say it was pretty amusing to see them fit so much ecchi into the episode when it was mostly a serious and action focused one. Things such as showing them get tied up and do camera shots right towards their panties was just funny in its own way. Then when they showed them breathing heavily and talking to each other having the camera be completely stationary on their breasts as it heaved up and down was great. Like I said it was funny in a non humorous way.
I am curious as to what Rubyâ€™s role will be now. It seems obvious that her initial arc is done now, as they spent two episodes on it, and it was quite interesting, however now it seems like she would fall into the same role the other girls did if she was normal. However from what I understood from the anime, which from numerous accounts sucks compared to the manga, is that if her staff is destroyed then she isnâ€™t a witch anymore, which means sheâ€™s human now. If thatâ€™s the case it would certainly make things pretty interesting. Tsukune is human so itâ€™s not like itâ€™s impossible for a human to go to the school, but she also wouldnâ€™t really be able to take part in the battle sot save Tsukune over and over again, in fact she wouldnâ€™t really be able to do much at all. Even if it does turn out sheâ€™ll get a small part still, it wonâ€™t be nearly as involved as the other girls.
