Well, that is a possible way to translate "tanomu", but in this case I'd say "I leave this to you" would be more appropriate.
Kind of strange nobody didn't draw attention to Dusk Lycanroc. Like, maybe have Lillie use Lycanroc to shield herself from Lusamine.
I'm still on the side that this maybe isn't Lusamine putting on an act and is actually her normal self, along with the anime associating her with good intentioned people early on. I get the feeling the anime would want to downplay suggestions of an abusive relationship for Lusamine 'not being herself' as she slowly gets corrupted, thus we show normal good intentioned but overbearing Lusamine before things gradually get darker.
I think some people are putting too much emphasis on this matter of Clefairy evolving into Clefable. As I've said many times, as far as I understand, Lillie used that as an example of how Lusamine cares more about her own desires and feelings than those of her daughter. Lusamine does whatever she wants, regardless of other people's feelings on the matter. Lillie wanted to raise Clefairy as a Clefairy, but Lusamine decided to evolve it into a Clefable in spite of her daughter's feelings. That was the point.Shouldn't it be at least partly the Pokemon's choice whether they evolve? Ash from the start acknowledged it was Pikachu's decision if he evolve or not and he couldn't force him to do it, same when he realised Bulbasaur didn't want to evolve.
It was kinda meh in some parts( annoying-faces returned), but when Lusamine and others came to Kukui's house it got better.Beginning was also good. Nebby's cute. It was Ok episode, overall.
I love Lusamine's voice in the dub, it fits her character perfectly imo. I also find it hilarious how she talks when she's embarrassing Lillie
