Before actually getting into the episode, I’m still having this weird love hate relationship with school competitions. The thing that irks me the most about this whole ordeal is the seriousness the students have. I know competitions usually bring the competitive side of people, but the fact that winning or losing doesn’t really impact anything is where the whole dissonance comes into play for me. The competition itself isn’t what matters, but the event that happen around it is the thing that makes it more interesting. And as of episode twelve, the only thing important that happens is the “accident” during the battle boarding race that ended up injuring Mari.
