No this isn’t a filler guys, this slow paced episode was in the novels too, stop misusing the term, the fact that this was expanded has no relevance, the material was in the original novel.

Also the director said so, “we will be adding scenes and complementary elements to the series”.

Now let’s go back to the review, this episode features Rin and show us a side of Tokiomi we never saw.

The music when Rin was struggling with Uryu was superb. Shame we’ll have to wait 4 months to hear the OST1.

Kariya showing after 6 weeks I think? poor man, won’t get much screentime this season.

I don’t wanna spoil you the fun guys. Go watch it on Nico or if you prefer wait for UTW.
