SSSS.Gridman Episode 5: The drills had to show up sometime


Not too much forward plot progress, but this episode was still entertaining. The episode seemed to be setting up a bunch of smaller plot points, so it's hard to judge without knowing where they're going. But hey...I don't mind seeing a new Gridman form, and I think it could be interesting if Akane starts focusing on more on Yuuta.

I can't really speculate too much off of a vague blur, but this flashback from Yuuta looked interesting. I sure hope it's not one of those weird cases where Yuuta is actually the bad guy who injured Gridman or something. That would be an awkward reason to give them both amnesia.

Ah, the classic stealth question. Akane had her suspicions from the start, so this doesn't seem too far-fetched to me. What did bother me, though, was the cell phone she was hiding in her...wait, let's not get off-topic. I know it's nitpicking, but she clearly fell into the river earlier in the episode, so how is her phone working?

Seriously, what is it with this show and the random pauses? I thought my computer had frozen or something. I guess the first episode wasn't a fluke. A pause for comedic effect is fine, but this pause just lasted way too long.

It's a very small development, but it's nice to see that Rikka is starting to feel like part of the team. Last week's episode had Rikka actively contributing to the fight, and this week's episode seemed to show that she really does want to help.

Also, I thought it was pretty funny that Rikka constantly runs out of breath after they spent an entire segment making fun of how pudgy Shou was.

I have no idea what to make of the Anti and Akane alliance in this episode. Honestly, I thought the scene was going to go a different way. With the delayed arrival of Gridman, Akane was forced to experience some of the consequences of her actions, which may have given her a better sense of what she was inflicting on others. But that never went anywhere.

I know the fight isn't the important part of the episode, but these fights still seem absurdly easy for Gridman.

So...what's the significance of the scarf? Is it just meant to show that Akane continues to reject Anti?
