More triumph and tragedies as the preliminaries are finish, and the competition for the title of Cosmo Beauty begins.
In this episode, it mainly focuses on Anna and her dark past. This reveals something about her personality and the troubles that came along with it. Anyway, a bit of fun and silliness at the start really gets things into a good mood. But it's soon cut short as Anna is going up against Mylandah in the first round. And soon pressures and stress builds up on Anna, and that makes her snap during the match.
On the second episode, fuel by anger, Kris is now training under Mr. Miracle and yearns to defeat Mylandah for what she did to Anna in the previous episode. This however puts a strain on her relationship with Akari, and she begins to falter. But if you remember what the title of this episode is, Kris soon rediscovers the reason why she wants to fight and carries on with her training.
On the last episode, the semi-finals have nearly begun and everyone is training hard, with Akari getting a bit of advice from the Headmaster. And soon halfway thru the episode, the semis begin and both Akari and Kris are getting beaten badly by Lahrii and Mylandah.
Seeing as I tried not to reveal too much, it's really hard for me to write this review. It soon becomes clear to me that what I've watched so far is something that is much more than an anime show. It brings to mind how easily some of this situations in this show can reflect on someone's life. What I felt is a story that is well worth every cent of this disc.
Video is still consistently good.
Same with the audio.
Along with the extras too. Nothing.
The dub overall was pretty good. Although I seem to have gotten use to Akari's VA, but I still say it is still a lackluster performance. However, one thing that did put me into question about the dub script was the name of Lahrii. Whose dumb idea was it to change Feldnut to Fernado?!!!
From here on, if any of you needs convincing, get this series and I guarantee you that you won't be disappointed.
