The series continues to be excellent, with the occasional episode (like last week) being merely very good. I have mixed feelings about the new opening theme song, but there's some lovely animation to go with it.
This episode runs into the curse of 1080p. The text of the newspaper Lotte is reading is just legible to the viewer. It's actually Kafka's Metamorphosis.
Yeah, I noticed that. Did you catch the reference when Diana was looking through the yearbook?

I did notice something, but now I've forgotten what it was.

Transplanting my comment from my blog:
Funny little bit. In episode 15, when Diana looks up their new teacher
in the yearbook, the entry next to it is "Salem Saberhagen", which is
the Cat's name from Sabrina the Teenage Witch. (Also it appears to say
"Second Place in Transformation Tournament, Black Cat Award, Sabrina

Okay, I certainly didn't pick up on that. My only knowledge of Sabrina is from Archie comics way back in the 70s.

Well, I never knew he had a last name. And that's about the same timeframe from when I last saw a Sabrina comic. ISTR some story where Archie was asking her to hop up his Jalopy, and he said he wanted a Roll bar, and she pictured some stand with a guy serving rolls, and suggested a Milk Bar instead, equipping the car with a soda jerk at a stand making milkshakes (with what looked like a Martini shaker....) in place of the back seat.
Dunno why I remember that, I can't remember what I watched last week.
