Tessou deals with a lack of energy and spends time with the other teachers.
I think this episode was pretty boring in comparison to some of the other ones we’ve gotten. Even the last little arc about Konori felt like it had more substance than this one. Here you had the adults repeating the same habits and some cameos from Index. Maybe the most important thing was that this hit home the timeline for the series and anyone who watched Index knows why we are unlikely to see Touma at all for the rest of Railgun. Which is a shame since that small fight between him and Mikoto was one of the better episodes.
There is no doubt that working for antiskill must suck. Are they all part-timers? It seems that most of them are teachers who are doing that work on top of their regular duties. That seems like a waste since you are going to wear them out. The main police force of the city is apparently part-timing just like Judgment. No wonder crime is rampant in that place when you have this kind of set-up. I’m more certain than ever that the city administrators want students fighting and committing crimes to help develop their abilities. I mean no one could seriously set something up in this kind of stupid fashion by accident.
Regarding the episode itself it wasn’t anything special. Just digging into the life of the teachers which seems to consist of nothing but working, bathing, drinking, and eating weird things. No wonder Tessou seemed so out of it. If I was doing nothing but that over and over again it’d get pretty frustrating. But yeah I’m sure Komoe just loves spending time with her students….It wasn’t bad to see the small teacher again though I have to wonder if eating that stuff explains why she is so small.
It was a nice little short story about Tessou and the kid who was playing those fighting games. She helped to give him a push towards doing what he wanted and he clearly plans on reviving that game series she liked eventually. But really an episode with minimal Mikoto kind of feels weak. Mikoto, Kuroko, Saten, and Uiharu really give the series life and with them being around for at most five minutes the episode felt long.
Anyways let’s hope the next episode has a bit more energy to it.
