Forty-five pieces of theme music are used for the episodes: Fifteen opening themes and thirty closing themes. Several CDs that contain the theme music and other tracks have been released by Studio Pierrot.

In a nutshell, this was an average episode with a rushed ending. But I believe the next episode will elaborate more on the cliffhanger that it left us on. As I mentioned in the review of Episode 158, the Studio Pierrot has always performed poorly on consistency. It is not as bad as some other episodes and I wish they keep this consistency for now.
One of the easiest treatments that can make a big positive difference in your smile is teeth whitening. Coffee, tea, soda and many of the things we eat can stain your teeth. Over time, teeth can look dull and dirty. There are many options for teeth whitening. Professional bleaching treatments offer long-lasting results, but may be too harsh for sensitive teeth. Over-the-counter teeth whitening products provide slight whitening results, but is much more temporary. One of my favorite at-home treatments offers a perfect middle of the road solution for whiter teeth ? bleaching trays!
Bleach trays are great if your teeth are too sensitive for in-office bleaching treatments because your dentist can manipulate the bleach formula to provide you with great whitening results without the harsh sensitivities. It is also a less expensive option. Bleach trays custom made in a dental office can also isolate gum tissues much more compared to over-the-counter whitening strips.
