Hello everyone and welcome to the Weekly Sket Dance report! Last week's episode is pretty random humor, and for this week's episode, we get down to business with one of the new characters, Kiri Kato. In this episode, we get to know his back story.
When Mimori tries to calm down Morita, Kiri shows up suddenly on Morita's shoulders. This causes Morita to throw a chair at Mimori, but Sasuke protects her. After Sasuke's talk with Kiri, Himeko asks Kiri to hang out with her, and she learns about Kiri's past. Later, someone from Kiri's past shows up, and Kiri snaps when that person causes Hime to cry.
Can Bossun and the gang stop Kiri's quest for justice before he crosses the line?
Beware of spoilers!
Kiri - the ninja of justice
- Kiri's character shines in this episode. He, Tsubaki, and Himeko are a lot alike. He could not help Kihara back then, and he tries to atone for his actions by making Kutsuwa apologize to Hime and Kihara. I enjoy Kiri's character.
- The episode meshes flashbacks well without interrupting the flow.
- For the fans who support Hime and Kiri, this episode is excellent for you.
- Anime vs Manga: For those who read the manga, the episode covers a bit of chapter 157, but it skips Bossun's reaction when he sees Himeko and Kiri together. (I thank Balthierfan for pointing out that chapter.) I'm sure they'll cover it. It's an important part that shouldn't be neglected. (Thank you Utipintar and Anonymous Editor for pointing it out)
For those who read the manga, the episode covers a bit of chapter 157, but it skips Bossun's reaction when he sees Himeko and Kiri together. I'm sure they'll cover it. Also, I like how the anime alter one scene where Tsbuaki protects Mimori. Overall, the episode is great.
