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.
