- Katakuri waits patiently and politely for the door to be opened.
- Daifuku is impatient and opens the door himself.
- Oven just walks right through the door because he's an asshole.
Since she's the last one to be unshaded in the opening, is Compote going to come by and simply enter the castle without any door-opening powers as there's no point to it anymore?
! Because it certainly doesn't look like she's going to be seeing any action at this point in the manga! The episode was fun. Could've been more fun with a better director behind the wheel though. Shingaki was shockingly well-behaved during the extended bath scene with the girls, and it was obvious that he drew all the shots with Nami and Carrot in them himself; consequently that was the best-looking material he's put out since his Punk Hazard days lol. Though why he's been drawing Jimbei with that weird scowling lockjaw expression I don't know. I don't remember that from Fishman Island and prior!
Bege's new music track at the start was a nice treat (Come on, new OST release, you know you wanna!) and I guess cold opens are going to be a thing going forward now? Bit of a pain for those who skip openings I suppose, but I've never been one of them.
Finally I noticed that the seating arrangement at the meeting is completely enclosed. So did everyone have to, like, clamber over the couch backs to take up their seats, Bege included?
