So part 2 of the school arc etc etc etc… and what the heck? they made no progress at all, except for Mai’s awesome dream power, everything was dull. But i loved the Student council president, when he went bisexual on all the guys, Big wtf moment there.
As for this episode’s importance and influence on the series plot, i’d say it really doesn’t contribute anything but it does have some character development for Mai that made the episode worthwhile. oh by the way i’ve noticed Mai got cuter in this episode, or is just that I’m growing to like her, and Shinsen showed that Anime subbing ain’t no game, they’re soon to catch up with Chinese subs, hopefully surpass them.
