An Unfair Enemy - S1-E15

Trivia: To the left of the frame, someone in attendance behind Maruyama when she praises Wakabayashi's save has the jaw disjointed from the rest of the head. It's a "cameo" featuring a character from Urusei Yatsura, Ryunosuke's father. Also in attendance another character with a design that stands out from the rest, which seems to be Sakurambo, again from Urusei Yatsura. (00:06:07)
