Just watched it, like, what the heck was going on the entire time? The two fights conflated into one just seemed off. But then again, if it was this way in the manga it would have probably been fine They seem to have a strange thing going on with characters falling from random heights though. Also, I feel bad for Kurome.
I swear Ran is going to die out of boredom next episode, how can he put up with doing literally nothing throughout the entire anime?
Edit: also, silly excuses for keeping the Jaegers away from all action, but what for?
