Guess who befriends Sumire / TSUNmire?
(Spoilers in this review)
The opening bit reveals that Sumire really loves animals, that she finds dealing with people to be troublesome, and that she’s a bit of a brocon (since she gets very happy at the prospect of having a very long talk with him). I guess he is an exception to her annoyance with people. I wonder if he’ll pop up later in the show.
The next day has Meguru attempting to befriend Sumire. She even goes to Sumire’s house and calls out to the blue-haired ice queen. Sumire repeats that she has no interest in her and walks away.
The villain who appeared during the last bit of the previous episode transfers into the school as the new school nurse. She’s basically fanservice incarnate judging by the sounds that play as they zoom in on her…assets. She also has the gym teacher eating out of her hand.
The next few minutes shows Sumire basically acting very cold towards Meguru. Meguru doesn’t give up hope, though!
Meguru sends the volleyball flying into the storage room where we see the hedgehog mascot getting harrassed by the dog Meuguru found earlier today. It seems like they were trying to hide the dog here, but this seems like a really bad hiding place…?
The gym teacher stumbles upon them and starts lecturing them for bringing animals to school because he has no chill. However, the new school nurse swoops in and basically changes his mind by saying she loves animals. He’s such a cherry boy!
The girls then head over to Sumire’s house since Sumire announces she’s taking the doggy in (because the dorms where Meguru is staying in doesn’t allow for pets). More flustered Sumire for all!
Turns out there’s some sort of animal fair / race going on and the girls show up for that.
It turns out that the hedgehog and the “school nurse” know each other. Why couldn’t you see through her disguise in the teacher’s room, then, Mekuru? You’re such a terrible mascot. I will insult every magical girl show’s mascot without fail, sorry.
So far, the series fails to distinguish itself from any other typical magical series. Maybe things will change once TSUNmire warms up to Meguru. Or once it’s revealed what Mekuru is doing behind the girls’ backs.

At a guess, I think that the Tuxedo Mask looking guy in the OP may be Sumire’s older brother. He also has dark hair and that’s kind of a logical thing for this type of series. Of course I could be totally wrong, there’s no actual evidence to suggest this.
It feels like a race where a mouse is able to enter with a horse is kind of unfair. I don’t understand why they didn’t give the pets a handicap (especially as feeding a horse for a year is way more expensive than a smaller pet, so it would be in the organiser’s favour to do this).
The series has been cute and magical so far. I’m not expecting anything really out of the box, but I’ve been enjoying myself!

That crossed my mind, too, to be honest. That would imply that he was involved with the predecessors which would be amusing. I guess we will have to see!
Right? It was impressive that Mekuru was keeping up as a little hedgehog *insert joke about Sonic*
The race just didn’t seem to be well-thought-out as a whole!
It’s certainly enjoyable! I eagerly await for Sumire to get mushy over Meguru!
