Thoughts/Review:

Hmmmm…Princess Connect! Re:Dive 09 ended up being an episode about mostly nothing. And I’m kind of disappointed.

Much Ado About Nothing

A lot of anime and manga series have their traditional beach episode. Princess Connect! Re:Dive 09 ended up being such an episode. Unfortunately, it was much ado about nothing to me. We get to see Saren and Suzume again, which was nice. But, we were introduced to yet another guild from the game, who mean nothing to me. That’s because I’ve never played the game.

Princess Connect! Re:Dive 09

Basically, the story goes through the motions to create a pseudo conflict. But I didn’t care anything about the supposed rivalry between Saren and Akino. So Karyl trying to intervene to help Saren didn’t do anything for me.

Princess Connect! Re:Dive 09

Throwing in a kraken for Pecorine to defeat was equally as meaningless. Since Pecorine had stated that her enormous strength (and appetite) came from her magical armor, I thought she might have trouble dealing with it. But even without her armor, it was no big deal for her. And sadly, it wasn’t even a funny moment.

Princess Connect! Re:Dive 09

I think that is the biggest disappointment. The laughs that were there early in the series are missing here. I did get one laugh, but that was it.

Final Thoughts and Conclusion

In the end, Princess Connect! Re:Dive 09 was an episode that was OK at best. Outside of one laugh, it wasn’t funny. And the story for the episode wasn’t that interesting to me.
