"Oh no, we gotta go to POINT A, but now we're suddenly ambushed by these supposedly really strong monsters we barely were able to scratch in the first episode, but now there's like 1000 of them, so now we can easily break their skulls just by pointing a finger at them! But nevermind that! You guys go ahead, I'll buy you some time!"
"Ok, sure! But first I have to stand here and insist on not leaving you for five minutes, because we're best friends and all! This really should ruin the whole plan, but this is an anime, so whatever. And then, when we finally decide the plan is the right thing to do here, I'll just stand around and watch for another five minutes, because leaving you here alone against this horde of "really strong" monsters is really emotionally difficult! Not that there's a chance in hell you'll actually die or anything, I mean, this is an anime after all!"
