The series is at its best when it focuses on the silly/absurd things like this and not when it tries to put the focus on the characters' mysterious/tragic pasts (and seriously, everyone on the student council has some kind of tragedy that lead the president to inviting them to her school). However, in this volume, the episodes got much better at blending the mysteries with the humor (for instance, this episode has plenty of puppet antics, but also hints at just what is up with Pucchan and Leon, seen above, and blatantly talks about how Rino's got some kind of powers, maybe related to the puppets?), making the backstory parts more palatable at least.
