I've been watching the anime adaptation of The Third
and the thirteenth episode just came that
close to bouncing me off the entire series. However the Off Model
page of TV Tropes has this to say:
"The entire thirteenth episode of The Third The Girl With The Blue Eye
is incredibly poorly animated compared to the fairly high quality of every other episode."
So it wasn't just me, and I can look forward to a return to form next episode.
EDIT: Episode 23 wasn't so hot either.
