Wow! I was really disappointed in this episode. They spent over half the episode on Satoshi/Shirona side quest to find a missing girl instead of the audience seeing the actual battle between Dande and Carne. Leave that kind of work to Junsa!

It's more and more apparent that this was done to reduce production costs associated with animating a Full Battle. We didn't even get a half a battle this time.

If they want to increase viewership, stop making the anime plain and ordinary with subpar production and animation.
