I really liked this episode, Ryuji is my favorite and we got quite a bit of his social link adapted. It was rushed and it didn't have the same impact, but his bond with Ren was still deepened and some of my favorite quotes were there, Ryuji is an angel.
It was also really smart to mingle his social link with Kawakami's, it made her fit well into the story, it felt natural and well executed. So... I guess we're off to Makoto's awakening now!
Mah boi Renren out here gathering some making the teacher his maid in order to avoid studying and get some services ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°), big brain move there. Sakamoto's former track team are a moronic group for almost following Yamauchi while ganging up on their 'traitor' teammates who also suffered under Kamoshida's tyranny.
