BOOBS. Seriously. This episode seemed to bare more skin than usual. I think Sakura’s singlet must have shrunk in the dryer or something. I mean, just look a this and tell how that getup is not prone to wardrobe malfunction. I mean, the fanservice wasn’t as noticeable last episode…Anyway, this was a decent episode, but still doesn’t match up to episode 2, which I consider the best episode so far. I think the difference between this loss and the one at episode two is the 49 losses between it. I’ve seen Sakura lose so many times (Heck, we’re spared from having to go through all 51 losses she has so far), that whatever lesson she learns from her lossens only matters so much to how much I want to see her get her first win. I thought it was going to happen in this episode. After she kicked out of two pins, I was thinking “Oh shit! Sakura’s finally going to go John Cena on her ass!” Nope. Another loss. It was heartbreaking even if Sakura did come out more invigorated to wrestle. Then there’s all the Sweet Diva drama which I honestly couldn’t care less about. Hey, I came (Ehehehehehehehe…) to this anime for the wrestling (and boobs) I don’t really care about all this idol drama stuff. I’d watch Idolm@ster or something for that. Anyway, okay episode, not as emotionally strong as the others. I WANT TO SEE SAKURA WIN DAMMIT. I’m ready to throw confetti into the air when that happens!
