Now that we’re finally done with that long ass arc, we can finally get back to the show. And all I have to say is “Thank god.” Because this episode was actually interesting, and the premise only took one episode. It was a breath of fresh air that this show desperately needed. What happened in it? Well let me tell you.
So the episode starts out with a lady named Tim Berners Lynn. (because that name is so long for the rest of the episode i’ll be calling her ‘Lynn’. She shows up at Kagami’s house as we learn that she’s a member of CERM (You know, basically that evil group from Stein’s Gate. Except you know…they’re not evil in this show)
Apparently ever since Kagami published an article in a science magazine about the possibility of an “Anywhere Door” she’s been interested in him. At first when he did it back in high school it was to disprove his theory, but after they were unable to do so, she wanted to hire him to become part of CERM which he immediately dismissed as he just didn’t feel like doing it.
Not wanting to give up she follows him to his school to try to convince him to work for them and come back to Geneva with her. Every time he keeps turning her down. The students, wondering what was going on asks Kagami’s sister what the deal is. She tells them and they go to confront Lynn to tell her to stop bothering Kagami about leaving.
She then offers a challenge to Kagami stating that if he can solve a science problem she’ll leave him alone, but if he can’t, he’ll have to come back with her to Geneva. He agrees and gets to work. As the days wears on, he gets an email saying that a student was in trouble in a park somewhat nearby. He runs to the park as the time runs out only to discover that it was a trick set up by the school’s chairman as a way to test if he really wanted to stay as a teacher or not.
Lynn gives up for now but as she’s about to leave, she sees that he had even solved the equation before the distraction took place, so in that regard, he won in both ways. And so the episode ends with the students relieved that their teacher is staying with them and Lynn going back to Geneva, defeated, but not giving up.
This was actually a pretty fun episode. It was nice to go back to this show’s roots of not worrying about the Crossdressing girl, WHO by the way, isn’t even IN this episode. So yeah. That was nice to spend FOUR FUCKING EPISODES getting him to come to school and he wasn’t even IN the episode immediately after. Good waste of time on that one.
The premise was actually pretty realistic. This guy who’s insanely smart OF COURSE would be hounded by all these important scientific companies to work for them, but of course he would turn them down because of his YD. It was also good to see the students really caring about him and how they don’t want him to leave. (And it’s insanely obvious that Potatoes and Anime Voice totally have a crush on him).
There isn’t much to say about this episode other than it was a little touching and definitely a nice relief and fun episode. I really enjoyed it and hope that next week will be as fun and not spend another 4 episodes with one kid’s problems. Yes i’m still harping on that but it was REALLY annoying.
I liked how it showed how much he really means to the kids and how even though he has his YD, maybe it’s changing into something else. All in all, nice episode guys.
