I knew exactly what I wanted to say in regards to this episode. The fact I said “in regards to” instead of “about of” sums up exactly why I’ve chosen not to say it. It involves a lot of “it’s because of that”s and “if only”s and “but”s, that maybe talk a lot about this show in ways I’ve already talked about this show, but are entirely unfair to this specific episode of it.
So I’ll keep this short and simple.
This was an absolutely excellently written episode of Smile. Seeing Miyuki in her fucking element, at the height of what a good character she can be, is fucking awesome to watch and translate. It has its issues, certainly, most of them involving Candy and lazy stock footage. But when this show comes alive, it fucking comes alive, and what fun it is.
Next week even looks like a fun filler ep! Could this be another 16-19 block we stand on the precipice of? One certainly hopes so!
Enjoy the episode!
