  • Hilarious.

    Full Moon leaves off for her daily work. However, Takuto and Meroko couldn't come due to circumstances from their office. When Mitsuki was waiting for Ooshige to pick her up, she called her on her cell, saying she was sick, so a substitute manager had to take her place. Akiba was his name, and he didn't seem to be like the most competent manager, already getting Full Moon in some trouble by openly revealing her identity in public. They sign autographs, and because of Akiba's miscount, he rushes the process. During the radio interview, Akiba interrupts by giving Mitsuki her live schedule, but trips and causes a huge commotion. Akiba and Mitsuki are late for their next interview with Takasu. Akiba screws up next by deleting all the composite songs for Full Moon's next album. Akiba gives up hope as a manager, and moves back. Mitsuki is saddened to hear this, and tries stopping this. Though by the episode's end, Akiba decides to open up a large store selling Full Moon merchandise.

    They should make a separate series focusing on Akiba, because there's no doubt in my mind that the anime "Akiba" would rival Family Guy, The Simpsons, and Futurama, in terms of comedy, because from this one episode alone, he's already awesome. Though in all seriousness, if only they showed Akiba more later on in the anime, this would have been a much better anime in the comedy department. This was more of an amusing episode than a funny one, but it also wins in being funny too. It was too bad no one appreciated Akiba's unintentional humour. The comedy was sort of more traditional, but it was still great.moreless
