Fuck yes, the show found something awesome for Suzu to do! She'll finally actually be relevant to the story! And oh god, she's so adorable.
We once again get to witness this show's amazing word battles. Along with a bit of its standard insanity mixed it with the dogeza bow stuff, particularly Shirojiro's Triple Axel Dogeza Bow.
And I loved the IM/IRC-ish conversations. More of those please. Some of the names were amusing.
So I guess the hooded person is supposed to be "Double Bloody Mary", a woman who succeeded both Mary Tudor and Mary I-forget-what, and is scheduled to be executed. I'm a little confused since she's supposed to be locked up in London Tower, but the way the conversation went right before and after her face was revealed sure seems to indicate she's the person they were just talking about. Though her character profile here (which isn't giving her name yet)
says something about shackles on her legs, which I didn't notice in the show, so I guess maybe they decided to allow her out for some reason. Or maybe my initial assumption was wrong.
In any case, naturally, she's quite cute and I look forward to more of her.
