Graphics
    Lots of new things here. Maptiles, NPCs, backdrops, palettes... all for the extro-house scenes. I have one complaint about the graphics... namely that JSH should have slightly redrawn CN's walkabout for Fyre in addition to the palette swap. Obviously Fyre is being represented as Draco Malfoy, but the last time I checked, Malfoy had slicked hair, not the same messy crop that Harry Potter (CN) has.  
Storyline
    The housemates leave the house in three limos (What? How can you spend money on limos but leave the house crappy? How much "OHR Bucks" did that cost?), destinations purely dictated by Giz, Lucier, and Minnek. Giz's attempt to "pimpify" Shadow backfires by scaring poor Shadow away (though it does make enough of a man out of Shadow that he tries to hit upon Lucier). Lucier gets a new haircut (I think a new Lucier NPC with new haircut would have been appropriate). JSH is with her, and because he's the millionth customer, he gets a free makeover... which just scares him. JSH, just be thankful they didn't give you a bikini wax. (For those who do not know what a bikini wax is... that is where hot wax is applied to the inner thigh and crotch... and when the wax dries, it is ripped off.) Minnek and CN head over to grab Gilbert's (Rolling Stone's) new game where CN runs into Fyre.

Because CN's in a bad mood, he doesn't leave the house again, which earns him immunity. Lucier learns JSH's secret, CN and Shadow vie for Lucier's attention, and Minnek calls up Sew (so even when Sew's gone, Minnek's still being told what to do).

Enjoyment
    Enjoyed it more than week four, but it felt like JSH was streatching for material to keep the house interesting.  
Final Blows
    According to my husband: "This is the weirdest week yet." And I agree.
Ah, gotta love the classic love triangle.

Storyline: 9/10.0
Kinda interesting that the Renzozuken Boards is an actual physical room... But I guess in a way that's no different than what Setu did with .hack//OHR.

Somewhat palid, but I guess there are only so many conflicts you can make without resorting to an outing.
Overall Grade: B+
