Tsukuneâ€™s class takes a field trip to the human world.
This episode was alright, in fact it was one of the better episodes so far(which isnâ€™t saying too much) but I find it a bit hard to REALLY like the episode considering it was such a bit waste of potential. I would think that an episode where everyone takes a trip to the human world would have a lot of potential for serious story to occur. Dealing with some of the issues of Tsukune being a human, dealing with some of Mokaâ€™s past experiences and how she came to hate the human world initially, and a general showing of prejudices between humans and monsters. Thatâ€™s one of the plot devices that could easily be implemented into this series, and it would manifest itself perfectly in this situation, yet they didnâ€™t even begin to touch on that. Hell, they didnâ€™t even have any short gags about the girls being surprised or fascinated with things there, considering they may not be exposed to human culture a lot.
Iâ€™m also a bit surprised that Kurumu didnâ€™t actually get her own episode this week. I mean, they even made a joke about it and broke the fourth wall with Kurumu saying how last week Mizore, and last last week Yukari, now itâ€™s her turn. It almost started out like tit could be her episode, dealing with jealousy of Tsukune being with Moka, but there was practically nothing. Iâ€™m not sure if they are just postponing her episode or not, but I would be very disappointed if this was in fact, effectively her episode. Sheâ€™s important enough that she deserves an episode a lot more centered on her then this one, especially since the others got one.
