Guys, find a woman who looks at you the way GhostStalker looks at every bald, obese, single 58 year old accountant from Tulsa who managed to win $4,000 by not wagering on a Final Jeopardy triple stumper.

So do the girls look different to whoever looks at them without their makeup? When the cop saw Junko in episode 2 last season, she looked fine apart from the sunken eyes and cheeks. This time she looked awful

It might be due to how the ocean washed away that makeup or something.

Now we know why Tae-chan is so legendary: apparently she's Neil Peart's illegitimate daughter.

She was bawling her eyes out over Ai, give her a break.

No I felt bad for her - I'm just curious why when someone sees them without makeup, their appearance varies from person to person

My local streaming service went for "Do u r est" > "Do your best" for the bento gag, which is a bit clunky but still amusing IMO.

This may also be Kotaro's straight up best job as manager, too. Got Ai to value her new group even more, Junko to find her footing and be more assertive on and off the stage, all for the cost of one beloved guitar!

It's not just you, it was wonderfully gay in that regard. The cop interprets Junko as pining over a romance, we found that Ai's video was what Junko was embarrassed over being caught watching, Junko pointing the smashed guitar and Ai running up to her and then Junko getting possessive over Ai at the end.... it was all really romantically charged.

Now all we need is a bit more Sakura/Saki content. Plus the Yugiri episode, of course.

With Junko: the moe filter failed on Policeman A, the ocean washed away her makeup, and she was ugly crying, which was established in the S2 Saki episode as drying out the baka zombiis. Good little callback bit.

Let's not forget that season 1 had people claiming Lily isn't trans, despite the show basically saying she is.

even if they'd made out and explicitly confessed their love for each other people would deny it. this happened, on this very forum, with devilman crybaby. so there's no point getting in your own head aobut if you're 'seeing things' or w/e. people just suck when it comes to gay romance.

The funniest part of that was transphobic culture warriors claiming CR's "SJW translators" (as if the site that FUNDED Incel Hero is SJW) added it in when the Japanese text was even more specific.

I'm cool with how they are handling it. It's there for those who want to see it, and seeded well enough to be developed further along. The whole thing has less than 20 episodes so far, there's sooo much to set up, pay off and reveal! I may be alone in this, but for the moment I am more invested in their backstory, career and zombie-ness than romance plots.

Though part of me loves that they chased Saki's hetero crush with double idol love.

Watching Kotaro just completely deflate when Lily takes over his meeting role was both extremely sad and extremely funny.

Something I really like about the story so far is how Franchouchou is becoming more famous in Japan as the episodes progress, starting with the radio show, then being recognized as rivals by Iron Frill, and now Lily's performance going viral.

I really hope that for the ending of Revenge, it ends with the girls either being ousted as zombies, or them revealing themselves as zombies, and Japan accepts them because they love the group so much. That way, they can all see their families again. These girls deserve a happy ending, not a sad one where the pass on
