Ignoring the gaping hole where I left off back in episode 8 purely because the series started to become all shakey which really affected my enjoyment of the it, it is good to see that this is the real episode since a long time where the series makes a strong comeback and proceeds to move forward at full steam (episode 13 also did this but I wasn’t sure until watching this episode). So with a fresh new OP/ED theme and things getting back on track, I shall continue with my selective review of the series. Bring on the Basquash!
