    Episode 1

    Hanging by a thread.

    This episode pretty much feels more like a transitional prologue than anything here as Yumeko is engaged in another gambling game against one of Kirari's subordinates, and then it switches over to the student council as Kirari herself steps down as the president, and brings in even more students to try and sent Yumeko packing. That match against Erimi pretty much reminded me how much I love Yumeko as once again, just when the opponent had rigged the game in their favor, Yumeko's heightened sense of observation is able to see through that. In this case, the game is to cut strings and whoever loses their finger from the guillotine is the loser. But for Erimi, the blade won't cut her's off. Quite a reckless bet that was, but with Midari involved, the masochist doesn't mind. Not the greatest of episodes here, but certainly this is what it needed to do in order to get back in the thick of things seeing that the first season's ending is anime-original and made in a way in that it doesn't affect the story moving forward given the end result.
