A lot happens in this episode that’s pretty surprising. So rather than talk about it, let’s just sit and admire how Hideyasu here manages to be so endearing despite his awful tendencies.
One thing to mention for this episode is the attacks the various riders have. They appear to all be named after drinks: one slash of the belt gives you “Squash”, two gives you “Au lait” and three gives you “spark(l)ing”. This does lead to au lait being combined with fruits it has no right being combined with, but Japan is very rarely sensible in these matters.
Anyway, enjoy the episode!
