THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Suddenly Noa and Kanuka don't like each other? It could have stood to have built that up a bit sometime in the past 13 episodes. The closest thing we got was Kanuka beating Noa in the tournament in episode 2 but it didn't keep up any pressure on the idea at all. So many episodes in between were silly throw-aways, too. Kind of sloppy.

Kanuka's tearful mention of her grandmother would also have made a lot more sense if this was before episodes 10 and 11, when we see that character for the first time. It wouldcreated anticipation to see her thus supporting the story it did with her and supported Kanuka's inability to function at 100% while worrying where her grandma went.

On the up side, Kanuka's facial spasm when she realized what a booze monster Noa is was very funny.

The Noa and Kanuka not liking each other did feel pretty random. Drunk Asuma is freaking hilarious.

It has been said twice already, and for the third time: Kanuka and Izumi actually had some beef with each other? They were suddenly made out to be a bickering pair. I guess what they had in mind was that since they're the only two females in SV2 who do actual field work, there must have been a sense of competitiveness between them. But if you leave Kanuka with anyone else except Gotou and Hiromi, the result might have more or less been the same as with Izumi.

Still, Gotou really knows what to do and for that, I give him another star. Hilarious drunkass episode overall!

4th time, yeah that fight kinda came out of nowhere, but they did get thrust into a different dynamic this time. People hate change you know.

The comparison between Izumi and Kanuka was pretty hilarious, not to mention their drinking competition.
Kokoro did nothing wrong.
