- Inaba looks pretty good the next day, all things considered, though apparently it hit her hard last night.
- Heh. Gossan actually shows up as himself.
- Uhhhhhhh. Damnit I think I like depressed Taichi better. He's trying to stop the rumors about Iori by... ...acting like he tried to rape Iori (not in so many words but of course that's how it'll sound to people)? What the fuck, you are an absolute fucking moron, Taichi. I think the reason episodes 14-15 were so good is that you weren't much of a factor in them. -_-
- Inaban does not approve.
- And after Taichi royally
fucks up, it's up to Fujishima and Inaban to diffuse the situation. As usual.
- The girl Iori pissed off isn't convinced by it anyway, so it's a double-failure. And it costs the club their presentation materials, which get torn to shreds. (Oh yeah there's this whole club advisor showdown thing I haven't even mentioned because really whatever it's not that important.)
- Oh shit. The rest of the club members get fired up to start over and overcome this, but Iori saw the destruction and... yeah wow. I think she literally might murder someone.
- ...Maaaan. Toyosaki Aki, I love you. The absolute hatred
she felt towards Setouchi was conveyed disturbingly well. Pretty sure Setouchi just pissed herself a little.
- So Inaban's approach to dealing with this is... talk about masturbation again!
- It, er, doesn't quite go according to plan. But it ends up getting us where we need: Iori telling everyone exactly what her fears are, exactly what's driving her so crazy.
- And holy shit it's fantastic. Toyosaki totally knocking it out of the park again. Goddamn. Iori lays it all out and it's pretty devastating to hear.
Inaban and Taichi give her an answer she's at least willing to consider, and they go their separate ways.
...Then Inaban finds the guys who trashed the room, confronts them, and gets in waaaaaaaay over her head pretty damn quickly.
Now we're set up for everyone to come together and save Inaban for the last episode. I was wondering how they'd use a full fourth episode after having the confrontation with Iori here. This is certainly one way of doing it.
