Okay, so this show likes its anti-climaxes. In this episode we saw two examples of the creators toying with this: first of all, the lady of last week’s cliff-hanger is not a threat at all, and instead wants to help the lead characters build their robot, not to mention that she’s working for Akiho’s father. Then the end of this episode comes, and casually mentions that there is an evil organization about to kill 6/7th of the world population.
Instead there was this big typhoon acting as the red herring in this episode: totally unrelated to the plot, but it kept the characters busy, and Akiho now knows about Airi (which I believe should have happened earlier by the way), and I admit that the way in which they used Kaito’s time issues during the typhoon. It looked much more painful than the other times so far, good job from the creators.
It’s also quite a strange way for a guy to hide his reports, using some of the strangest requirements that could break down making some of the clues potentially unsolvable. I really wonder why. I mean, I get that he was a playful guy and all, but would even such a person want to joke about something so serious? Was there a reason why he had to keep things so secret to keep them from finding out?
Rating: 4.5/8 (Good)
