Yeah that got me too. Expected the usual "Oh here's the new mysterious transfer student" who then eyes Ran mysteriously for the rest of the mysterious episode.
Nah, psychic battle, right here, right now, right in front of everyone.
*I'll inconvenience you..*
"Bitch don't make me impale you with stationary"
*Maybe I'll hurt your man*
"I'll bring down the wrath of god on your ass"
"Stop this mind jibber-jabber and use yer damn mouth like a good whore!"
So yeah, gonna watch the second ep now.
