"Fantastic!" - Maze (Male)
This is, what i would like to say about this special episode, which was included in a box-set release of the anime Maze and is supposed to be a side story, also called Episode 26, in where the characters are shown in fashions, in what they couldn't be shown in the anime itself, because it ran on air and it wouldn't have been child friendly content. Sadly, it isn't that fantastic after all, but definitely not the worst of them all.
Let's start with what i found most interesting in this episode, the introduction of it. The characters were basically talking about this
being a special episode, since they were wondering how there is another episode, if the main story only has 25 episodes. And then they were kind of explaining, what this episode will contain. That said, afterwards they basically just found a random hot spring out of nowhere, where it said, that this hot spring may be cursed. They still end up in it and the "stuff" happens.
Overall a pretty funny fanservice episode, which obviously doesn't bring any new story to the anime. It's basically fanservice. The episode is really funny though, i have to admit that. Important to note, that i didn't watch the main story, the anime Maze itself. I wasn't familiar with the comedy of this show, so it caught me by surprise and i enjoyed it definitely.
Nothing spectacular though, so only 5/10. I recommend this for fans of the series, people who like old-ish fanservice (90's and 00's) and people who want a quick laugh and don't want to watch a whole series.
