Well this episode was a just a crazy bag of something. First, let me point out the small cosplay referencing Mezzo, another anime that Studio ARMS had co produced back in 2004. Alright next, let me point how horrible these hostage-takers are. Typically when you hold people hostage, you don't let them roam around in their bags, you don't let them cosplay and put on a show and you certainly don't let them converse with one another. Maybe This style of hostage taking is strictly an American style and in Japan, hostage takers consider such things as perfectly reasonable.
