  • Should the teens visit the Hot Springs or beach? I’ll pick beach.

    This episode reminded me a lot of Azumanga Daioh and just about every teen comedy anime out there. You’ve got the road trip, the beach, the volleyball, the bikinis, the boat, and watermelon smashing (well, almost). The only missing cliché is the “I can’t swim” character falling into the water and needing a rescue. Then halfway through, there’s an island visit and action is to be expected, but it’s kept PG. The fighting is rather average with hardly any new moves as Ryoko and the gang deal with some cronies. The fantasy element is held back as well; I guess if they do that too often it’d be boring. What? No haunted island with spooky ghosts? D’oh! Eye candy is still there, I’ve seen more panties in this series than on Victoria’s Secret specials which I never get to see except for the credits; I’m also surprised our favorite teen fighters don’t have scars by now; and wish I had that kind of luck with my skin.moreless
