it was a ok episode, i was happy to see some miya miya show time at least. The horrible attempt at english characters speaking english annoys me a little, its ok to have a accent but get your translators to make correct sentances at least
It was a pretty weak excuse for a fight but it turned out very funny nonetheless. Dan is quite the ladies man. It sucks that Miya Miya lost yet again but things look up now that she's finally asking honestly for help in improving her kendo. I hope to see her win at least one fight before this series wraps up.
Yeah, it's common than you think and it isn't as difficult to counter as they make it seem. But then again, they make even simple, basic moves look difficult. Also, I couldn't help but laugh at the irony of "Japanese audience!".
