Animenewsnetwork - This wasn't a bad episode. In fact, it was almost too much of a good episode - the emotional notes were all in the right places, but the bombast was turned up to eleven for every single one. I had to remember to exhale while watching. I'm not sure if I've even processed the whole thing yet. For a while, I couldn't decide if this was more of an A- or an A+ experience. There are solid arguments for each.
