A "filler" episode?

Honestly, the one Uzaki-chan wa Asobitai! Double - Chapter 9 is dedicated to working with hot springs Hakone Kowakien Yunessun it's too obvious. To be something that obviously doesn't appear in the manga. However, I have to admit that the episode left me with mixed feelings.

First of all, and as always, I'm grateful for coming fan service in the anime. Especially on this occasion when the three women of the family uzaki They spent almost all of their screen time in swimsuits. On the other hand, I also felt that an entire episode of the original season was overkill for the collaboration. Although I'm not saying it's poorly adapted to enter the story Uzaki-chan wa Asobitai! Double. It seems to me that it served its purpose as an advertisement quite well.

Personally I would have preferred them to do this animation as OVA except after the end of this second season. Although I also understand that giving yourself the freedom to step into it without having to interrupt an important arc like the one that is coming was a very good moment in the storyline. Except that I consider it a OVA It would also allow them to have more content from the work by a hypothetical third season. Of course, I'm also aware that there would be other things that would make this personal taste impossible for you.

Of course, I won't deny that seeing the chapter reminded me of the filler I've seen so many times Naruto Y Naruto Shippuden. Only in this case did it feel more canon in the plot. Despite the fact that the protagonists had almost no interactions with each other. I just think they made good use of the "few days later" space that's usually there for time transitions. For that reason, the first place I cataloged it was as "filler" for this second season. Although in the end I don't quite feel it that way either after all the contribution of the phrases from sakaki I think they gave the plot a development that might show up again in the future flashback.

An accurate prognosis?

As I said at the time, this second season started off with a short scene sakurai Y hana talk about spending their first Christmas together. As they progressed, the previous episodes, the arrival of this Christmas seemed a little far away given the previous events that appear in the manga. Still, I was expecting this entire Christmas arc to be customized. However, with the addition of that peculiar ninth installment, I have a feeling things are going to be a bit rushed.

Considering that this season will only have 12 episodes and 3/4 of them have already aired. I consider it very fair that all of the events that can be seen in the remaining three chapters have to be adjusted. Especially the preview of the tenth episode.

Of course, that doesn't mean it's not possible to customize the Christmas loop at this point. Perhaps it is only necessary to omit some events of little importance in the plot. Which of course there is always.

At this point I can already imagine at what exact moment the season will be over. Somewhat adequate for what I was expecting, but I'm sure it will make me eager to continue seeing more of the relationship hana Y sakurai. So I'm already looking forward to a sequel being announced once it's over Uzaki-chan wa Asobitai! Double.
