This is still painfully slow but we might have an end-goal in sight now? It feels too much like the show is in a circling pattern where they keep teasing shit but they're taking their sweet time to getting to any sort of payoff. I feel like this episode might have been more effective earlier in the season so the season itself felt like there was a general direction to everything. Now I'm just wondering how long it's going to take Akko to learn the other five words.
Trigger milfs are the best.
I'm assuming this is a flash-forward where the town is on fire and the academy is in ruins which sounds really damn interesting right? There would be some serious change to the status quo. It just seems like though that this won't happen until episode 22 if ever. They need to get the ball rolling on something as I'm finding the lighthearted episodes to be too much as the episodes aren't creative enough either from a visual or writing standpoint to be sustainable for another cour+.
If Trigger isn't going to be able to nail the comedy then just get to the action.
