I think it's pretty logical to learn martial arts countermoves even if you aren't a practitioner, especially since the show's been teasing for quite a while about this Junya person being a Jigen Haoh user who's well-known (at least to the Gunpla Academy).Raikoh wrote:All the martial arts hype goes to a guy whose gimmick isn't even martial arts, strangely. Judo flips? Hokuto shoutouts? Dodging? I didn't think Try was capable of this kind of stuff.
Honestly, Fumina flipping out over Shia felt a bit off-base for me. Yeah, we've had random little rom-com bits (like her and Sekai falling in a heap back in the first episode), but so far there hasn't been any real indication that she's attracted to Sekai. Not to mention she KNOWS the guy's as thick as a whale omelette when it comes to romance, so I dunno why she was worried. Tho I will say, the part where she randomly turned into a Powerpuff Girl had me laughing as loudly as the episode's 6AM release time would allow.
I was actually hoping Yuuma would show Sekai a little more respect after the latter finally showed an interest in working on his own Gunpla, but I guess that's a slow road. Based off of his little speech near the end of this week's episode, even getting him to stop being openly contemptuous of Sekai is an uphill battle.
