Encode: Shareraw from hikiko123
It’s the same template as episode 1, just with a different delivery. The story so far is mediocre, but it’s saving grace is a nice animation and the sadistic depiction of a delusional man.
Since they’re having the creative freedom on this adaptation, the should go with something even more original in a typical 4-episode Suzuki Mirano format. This would be epic if he actually ends up going for the win with Kanoko on the 3rd episode, only to discover later in the 4th episode that she is his daughter from Nanoka-sensei back then. That will make this series more memorable since the kill/die plot twist has been kind of overused nowadays and is starting to feel dull.
