Not a great episode for service, but Yuki’s emboldened nature kept this episode fun.
The only meaningful frontal censorship of the episode comes right at the start, and it basically is just a brief clip show version of what we’d seen before:
Yuki takes her shirt off, demanding equal treatment from Basara (she wants some R-rated fondling too).
Later on, Yuki and Mio get changed in a scene that focuses on each girls bust size. There’s a bit of a swimming competition between Mio and Yuki afterward, but it’s of no real consequence.
Maria stuffs herself in a locker with Basara and proceeds to do lewd things with him. We get a censored panty shot. Naturally, she chooses Mio’s locker.
Mio has a sudden curse mark attack and needs to be fondled ASAP.
The scene that follows feels too watered down to be sexy. It even included some censored groping. This is some ridiculous over-censorship on par with the kind of silly shit Cross Ange did. It doesn’t help the show, but it’s easy to forgive given how far we know this show has already taken things.
Basara then hoses Mio down in another scene that is again disappointingly tame (Maria makes reference to Basara using the shower head like a vibrator, but we see nor hear anything of the sort). Basara tries to suck on Mio’s titty through her swimsuit, which is also censored. Another example of silly over-censorship.
Hey another Zest scene. It’s brief and all we get is cleavage.
IMS gets a gold star for this show so far, but they CANNOT allow this series to end without Zest and Chisato showing the goods at least once. Not a lot of episodes left, clock is ticking!
Another new set of ED visuals. Once again done nicely:
Overall this was one of the more disappointing episodes for service in the series so far. The title (“Erotic Succubus Out of Control”) suggested great things, but there was no “new” nudity potential, the first time since the first episode that has happened.
That said, the Type A side of this anime was great, as the Harem aspect raised another notch. Yuki is starting to enter Momo Deviluke territory, in that she wants it so badly that it raises the game of her harem competitors. I really like the chemistry these characters have, and this episode had a few legit chuckle worthy moments. A very nice episode if you like love triangles in anime.
While most series like this are often a lock for fanservice extras on BD, CDJapan’s product descriptions currently indicate that only the first Testament BD will have one. But watching this episode, I couldn’t help but feel that they were saving something for BD here, as the scenes were short-lived and quite tame. Should be interesting to see what IMS does.
