Typical body switch episode. When you’ve seen it on Shakugan no Shana, you’ve seen it on all of ’em. This show is so mindless it hurts.
No notable Japanese pup-culture references that I can mention, aside from that one scene that looked suspiciously like Code Geass. All I can say is that this episode is a great example of destroying the suspension of disbelief when it comes to “straight” anime MCs. And I’ll name all them in one post.
