After their most recent trip into the Otherside, Sorawo and Toriko find themselves in Okinawa. They decide to make the most of it, at least until strange phenomena starts happening around them yet again.
This episode adapts chapter 6 of the light novel, “Resort Night at the Beach of the End”. Sorawo and Toriko find themselves in Okinawa, and they decide to use the opportunity to kick back and relax. However, things soon go awry with them once again unintentionally venturing into the Otherside.
So, yeah, we’re getting a beach episode. Whilst this may be adapted from the light novel, once again things are being told out of order. Presumably we will see chapter 5 adapted eventually, particularly as it is pretty much a continuation of what we got in the two previous episodes.
As this is a beach episode, I suppose it’s only right to share these:
Their swimsuits are a little less conservative compared to what the light novel gives us. A good enough interpretation, I guess.
Oh, remember when Sorawo acquired an M4 CQBR? No? Well, that’s hardly surprising, because the chapter where that happened (chapter 5) has not been adapted yet. This is an inconsistency that the anime just kind of glances over. Perhaps adapting chapters out of order causes more trouble than it is worth.
Things get more bizarre after the shooting practice, because Sorawo and Toriko are in the Otherside, after all. This is true to the chapter from the light novel, too, though what Sorawo sees in the anime doesn’t quite match up the description she gives in the light novel. That one doesn’t matter too much, though.
This episode ends with Sorawo spotting something. In the anime, Sorawo seems to not quite believe it. In the light novel, she has no doubts.
Putting aside the M4 inconsistency, this episode did a solid job of adapting chapter 6 of the light novel. Certain small details were either changed or just left out, but nothing that would have a major impact on the story.
So overall, good episode.
