Thoughts/Review:

Well, it has been ages since I watched an episode, but since I was recently reminded via comments, I thought I’d pick this up again.

For the first story, it was mildly amusing with the normal dopey plan and failed results. Still, being a cheeseburger lover, I did like the concept of the platoon opening a hamburger restaurant. Not that I’d eat any of the nasty “burgers” they sold. *lol*

As to the second story, I liked that Momoka got a brief, romantic moment with Fuyuki, even if he was just under the influence of the tree. Yeah, she’s a spoiled ojousama, but I can’t help but want her to actually succeed in winning Fuyuki’s heart.

As to the alien sakura tree, I don’t know if there’s a legendary sakura tree or not. However, it did remind me of the legendary World Tree, as seen in Negima!, which also glowed and would cause folks to fall in love.

In the end, we had a couple of fun stories.  I really do miss the manga. Too bad no one will license rescue it.
