“For being born, for being alive up till today, for meeting Illya, everyone and even Shirou, I am grateful. Thank you.” – Miyu
Our group of cute girls head to the beach for real this episode. We get some fun volleyball scenes with the Illyas and Miyu as well as THE BEST MOMENT EVER –> when the girls meet Bazett at the beach selling popsicles to pay off damages from last season’s battle.
A bit more of Miyu’s mysterious past is hinted at. This is her second time at the beach, her first in the water and the first birthday party she’s attending with her friends. Happy Birthday to the Illyas at the beach. Miyu finds things such as celebration, gratitude and affirmation so foreign to her, these slice of life simple moments so unfamiliar. She’s even unsure with what to do when she receives a present from Shiro.
Wow when Miyu gets emotional, she really gets emotional and the scene gets just a little heavy before the other friends whip out some hilariously revealing bathing suits as presents. When a few explosions draw everyone’s attention to a huge construction site on the beach, all our characters gather in an unlikely beach setting. Rin and Luvia meet Bazett (OMG WHAT IS WITH LUVIA’S SPARKLY GOLD BATHING SUIT IT LOOKS LIKE IT’S HALF RIPPED). Miyu reveals that Rin and Luvia are conducting huge construction operations to physically dig the eight card out of the ground.
In the random spout of everyday comedy, all the girls begin to fight over Shirou *facepalm* Even Issei steps in to claim Shiro for himself and the temple. POOR ILLYA CAUGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF HER FRIENDS’ SPAT AND AN AGGRESSIVE POPSICLE SELLER AHAHAHAHAHAHAH THIS COMEDY IS GOLD. EVEN RUBY JUMPS IN WITH HER MAGIC POTION and Shirou ends up mistakenly revealing HORRIBLY INSECURE PHYSICAL THINGS when the love potion becomes a truth serum AHAHAH. OMG all these awkward kiss scenes… Oh Ruby, what would you do with you.
What are you pondering today?
