So, this was quite excellent.
I am of the opinion that one would be hard-pressed to find any cast of characters more inherently adorable than the K-On girls, and their inclusion into UF has done absolutely nothing to reverse that opinion; rather the opposite, in fact.
This piece both continued in that vein (re: Yui and Ui's parents, which was absolutely -brilliant-), and also brought the whole of TFLF back into, well...the Federation's story itself. Most of what's been going on with the Dìqiú Suite and related pieces has been much more on the light and family-fun side; and though we've seen the (very) occasional peak that all is not entirely well outside Dìqiú, TFLF in particular felt almost like an wholly separate realm -within- that.
And now I feel like it's circling back around into the fold. The interesting piece of that though, is that, to me at least, it feels like it's doing so -without- compromising the fact that these are just a bunch of happy-go-lucky highschool girls. We're not seeing them gird up and join in the punching; they're trying to help in their own way. It's working really well for me.
So yea, really looking forward to the next piece; can't wait to see the girls of HTT work their magic with a purpose.
