Oh for Christ’s sake!
Episode twelve is, for most 26-episode series, the designated time to work towards their first minor climax. So what does Suteki Tantei Labyrinth bring us? A freaking pool episode.
The most annoying thing is that I’m just unable to say anything bad about it. Heck, it was hilarious, and even Mayuki got himself a bit of development. There was a lot of foreshadowing in this episode and for once, Byakko did actually nothing. Really, the only bad thing was the excessive fanservice, but I would be lying if I didn’t laugh at the pool-pervert who dressed himself up as a Santa-Clause. Everything was just so silly and exaggerated that it gave a nice contrast with the rest of the series.
Really, I still have no idea where this series is getting at, but the second half of this series is about to start. Perhaps that will shed some light on this rather peculiar series.
