    This episode got a good chuckle and brought up memories of Osaka from Azumanga Daioh talking about a bread-eatin’ contest. I didn’t know lunch lines were so crazy, but I guess it’d be like if they served In-and-Out burgers instead of the usual dreck of a burger.



    This episode’s got typical Sousuke antics with milder violence than the original FMP series. Kogure was an amusing villain of the week, while not saying anything particularly memorable, visually he exudes a little bit of bumbling evil a la Dick Dastardly or Wile E. Coyote, as he tries to sabotage the situation, but somehow, in his mishaps, he increasingly earns the respect of Sousuke instead.



    The plot is fairly predictable and the artwork was average, but still fun to see through. The Boys’ PE class was also a nice detail demonstrating the levity of the series. Kaname’s friends get some airtime as well with a tiny bit role for Mizuki.



    Finally, I learned that Atsu is with the times and loves ZONE! Good for him!moreless

    • Mr. Kogure: My, my, Sagara eh? You look well today. (Sarcastically) You don't look like you've sent a person to the hospital.
      Sousuke: I am honoured by your compliment.

    • Kaname: They're going to sell out if you don't hurry.
      Sousuke: That is not good.
      Kaname: You need to order with a large voice. You need spirit.
      Sousuke: Okay, spirit? (Fires a shot in the air) I demand a French roll! Hand over a French roll quietly! Or else... I will shoot you!
