The episode starts with team Yusuke’s mysterious small girl removing the mind control devices from their competition after a thrilling fight. These people who have been brainwashed were living in constant torture and hell so it was good to see them escape. The extra detail of them saving themselves was also a nice touch as it vilified the doctor instead of the patients.
I was worried at first that dark tournament would become boring quickly with constant 5 on 5 battles but I now enjoy the variety at play during the creation of this show.
The fact that the dark tournament is extremely rigged is made even more apparent by the circumstances of their next match as they’re forced to face the next opponents with no rest time, this moment had me outraged!
It leaves me questioning how they’re going to survive so I’m really interested for what will happen next.
This episode was a fun yet emotional with heart-warming moments from the first team but a thrilling outrage when we learn that they have to fight the second team. It was a good episode all-round.
