Lynn wants to catch Licht so that she can get promoted and choose her own uniform rather than the standard-issue short skirt design. Unfortunately, she’s not the only one after him!
The high ranking solider, Jail has just smashed up Nana’s bar and is now tracking Licht down. Of course, Lynn is also trying to catch Licht which turns into some sort of absurd chase scene again. Finally, Jail arrives and tries to impale Licht. They fight, Licht reveals his count, Jail has Lynn reveal some exposition about ballots, and then he reveals his true count and it’s much bigger than Lights.
So this episode wasn’t worse than the last one, but it certainly isn’t getting any better. Most of the episode is the same as the previous episode which is why there is a very short summary this time around. There’s more awkward exposition, this time with Lynn explaining ballots, which then brings into question how Hina’s mother died if she had a ballot with a 10,000 count on it. Ah, but don’t worry about small details and inconsistencies like that when this series is just terrible to begin with.
It’s not funny. It used the same jokes as last week and they weren’t funny the first time. Licht playing the pervert is just weird and I have no time for it. This series feels like someone tried to make an ecchi series with their only experience of ecchi was listening to non-ecchi fans moaning about the content. Groping… check, perverts… check, short skirts… check. The problem is that it is just that. There’s no finesse or style to the writing. It’s just in your face and not in a good way. Only twenty episodes to go!
