SPOILER Summary/Synopsis:

Kyoukai no RINNE 44Rokumon puts his plan into action, but Kurosu is prepared for them. Rokumon does manage to get the key, but his opening the door means everyone else gets to go before himself and Rinne. They make it to the Kuro Neko Dome, where the black cats are given vouchers based on their scores to use at shops around the arena. The goal is to battle each other. Oboro does well initially, but is eventually disarmed and forced to team up with Rokumon until he slides out of the ring. Suzu uses her coupons to get food and takes herself out. Rinne tells Rokumon to use his vouchers to win, which he does. Rokumon, Oboro, and Suzu all get their 1st rank due to having finished first in different events.

Thoughts/Review:

Hmmm. Well, we get to part two, but really, this story didn’t really work all that well as a two episode event.

There were some comedy moments here, such as when Rokumon tricked other black cats to take themselves out of the final competition. However, I didn’t find this episode to be as funny overall.

Kurosu’s antics to try to prevent the key from getting taken were amusing as well. At least Shouma wasn’t annoying. If anything, his looks of boredom at times reflected my feelings as the anime went on. More on that in a bit.

Suzu’s antics were cute. She can be quite the scene stealer when she shows up.

However, to be honest, I found myself mostly bored by this episode. I felt that we’d already seen enough of this competition in the previous episode. So things became kind of tedious to me. That’s unfortunate as I am glad that Rokumon won the final contest.

Naturally, Suzu and Oboro get the same 1st level ranking (entry level, as I understand it since Kurosu is 6th level and way superior to them). As Oboro indicated, they should have mentioned this from the start. Ah, but then there wouldn’t have been a story. 😉

Finally, Sakura gets another cameo to bookend this two part story. Yay, I guess.

In the end, not much to write home about with Kyoukai no RINNE 44. Sad as the anime is starting to feel a bit weary.
