The formula is, without a doubt, becoming increasingly stale. Thankfully, the show still has its moments of surprise that keep things interesting.
If we didn’t get any of Foresight’s story, this episode would have been far more palatable. However, it would have also lost out on much of its impact, even if said impact was heavily manipulated by the directorial choices this episode.
Center stage. The focal point of attention. The top star with top billing. Let the spotlight shine on my (current) anime of the season. Position zero, this is Shoujo Kageki Revue Starlight!

Have you heard of the movie “Before Sunrise”?
This is part 1 of a 2 part series of articles that focus on Nier’s best boy.
One of the big successes of this episode was how well it integrated Nazarick’s denizens into the episode’s plot.
So long as you know how to avoid pitfalls.
