This episode was a comedic episode that actually has a bit of a payoff. The whole episode was Yukimura’s obesssion with trying to kiss Muneakira to see if it’s primarily his lips that are responsible for making a girl a Master Samurai, and not necessarily a pact between him and Jubei. Episodes of anime series like these, especially when they’re done so early on in the series, usually leave a bad taste in my mouth. Here, however, it kind of works because there are good scenes, it gives a satisfying answer to the question posed in the episode, and then there’s the nudity. Not the Muneakira nudity, though female fans might wish for all censorship to be gone in that bath scene. Kugimiya Rei was just awesome this episode as Yukimura.
This episode was a reminder that this is a comedic series as well. We’ve seen some comedy, but the drama and story had dominated the first 3 episodes. Normally in this situation, I might have grief with the episode for diverting away from something interesting in lieu of a comedic endeavor, so it’s surprising for me to post in a rather positive manner in regards to this week’s Samurai Girls episode.
Since the episode really relied on the whole premise of the kiss, I think it’s best to go play-by-play style and then post the breast of the rest at the end.
